Running OPL on a B/C PS3, Advice please! –
So I've been doing some thinking and decided I'd like to be able to play all my PS2 games on my PS3, rather than having another console sitting under my TV. The PS3 I'm intending to use is a CECHA01 console, so it's the USA launch edition with full hardware backwards compatibility.
Currently I'm planning on using a USB HDD to keep my PS2 ISO's on. I would also like to stress I will only be using this to play games I own (PS3 is USA, I live in the UK and have a -lot- of UK games that just won't work on it! Damn region coding...), so no legallity concerns.
Having said that, I've been reading the OPL guides and I see it says to use Swap Magic 3.6 or 3.8. Does anyone have any suggestions on which of these two versions are better for running OPL v0.8? Also, what is the best method for ripping the ISO's? I would assume ImgBurn (which I do have installed) but would like to check. Is there anything else I need to know with regards to ripping the ISO's and dumping them on the USB drive?
Sorry for the n00b questions, but want to make sure I do this all correctly before I go out and buy Swap Magic discs and a 3.5" USB enclosure for one of the spare HDD's kicking around the house! (got a 250GB and a 500GB doing nothing)
