Need help running ps2 games off usb drives
Need help running ps2 games off usb drives –
Hi, I'm new to these forums.
I'm looking for a very straightforward/newbie guide to running ps2 games straight off a usb flash/hard drive (no dvd discs). I also realise that only about 50% of all games are compatible and some may not want to run or run slow due to usb 1.1 ports, that's okay, I would just be keen to get it working and even have one game run (I have lots to choose from).
I already have a swap magic disc and freemcboot installed on my memory card so have run backup games successfully off dvd's using those.
I've looked at the forums and there seems just way too much information and none of it is easy to read/follow, a lot of techno babble that I just don't understand.
So can anyone write/point me to a tutorial which can get me running games off a usb drive in 5 minutes or less. Preferably just need something in numbered/bulleted steps, like "go here, download this, copy it here, etc".
P.S. I have tried the usbadvance method, burning that bin+cue to a cd and launching it with swap magic, it does not want to work for me, the ps2 just can't read the cd (tried a few cds with variable burning speed as well, so I don't know if the brand/type of cd-r is the problem here or what).
