I was looking into modding my PS2, and it looks like FMCB w/ ESR is the way to go, but I do have a few questions and thought I should get as much knowledge as I could before I spend any money on swap magic or something.
First I will start with some information about my PS2. It is a slim model, specifically SCPH-75001. It is just a normal PS2, nothing special done to it at all.
I was wondering if there is any way that I can get FMCB on my PS2 memory card without having to buy anything, and if I do have to buy anything, what method do you think is the easiest/cheapest to get FMCB on my memory card?
Will I be able to play my backed-up PS1 games with it using ESR? And can I use DVD-R or will have I to get CD's for my PS1 games? (And if so, CD-R or a different format?)
With the PS2 Slim can I run games off of my 500gb external hard drive (USB) somehow, or will I just need to stick with making backup discs?
Just one more question about memory cards; is there any way that I can use a flash drive or external hard drive to make game saves.. or is there any reliable PS2 memory card bigger than 8MB?
I appreciate any help that I get; thanks in advance.
