Why Groove doesn't like PS2 Discs...?
So I was curious about why we haven't had any sort of PS2 HD loader for at least us few people with built in PS2 support. I thought maybe it's because PS3 games are mounted with the BD Emulator and maybe if you were to add a PS2 disc to that BD Emulator, it would run it as a PS3 game (which just wouldn't work obviously.) So I thought I'd do a small test:
I was going to load into jailbreak. Put in a PS2 disc. And see how the PS3 mounts it. (dev_bddvd, dev_hdd0, etc etc)
When I put in the disc... nothing. The disc didn't show up on the game list. I made sure it wasn't my disc. I booted into the ps3 like normal and the disc shows up: Playstation 2 Format Disc.
So my question is... why does the payload block PS2 access for models with PS2 support? Does anyone know?
