questions about crystal chip abilities
I just ordered a premodded ps2 slimline with a crystal 1.1 lite installed. I read a ton of stuff but I'm still confused about a few things. Your help is greatly appreciated. Now the questions start :)
What media can I use to make back up copies of my games and movies? Can the PS2 with crystal chip read cd-r, cd-rw, dvd-r, dvd+r, dvd-rw, and dvd+rw or can it only read certain types? What type of double layer media will the ps2 read?
When trying to play a game online (original or backup of original) do I need to do anything to turn the chip off or will it go into sleep mode? If I need to turn it off what do I need to do to do so?
I've read a little bit about the bootmanager software but I'm still not sure what all it is capable of? What tasks do I need the bootmanager for?
I've been reading about people hooking up hard drives to their PS2 and have become interested in that. I have a USB external hard drive case that I could use, what all do I need to do to get it hooked up to the PS2 where I can play my games directly off the hard drive? I know I have to purchase some software but I'm not sure what all else is required or if the crystal chip will work with a hard drive.
Thanks for all your help. I'm sure I'll have more questions. I've learned a lot from this website and am hoping to learn more and eventually be able to help others.
