need help connecting ps2 to windows vista pc –
I really hope that I'm posting this in the right place. If not, I apologize. I'm new to all this forum stuff. Anyways, I soft modded my ps2 with free mcboot a couple days ago and that was a walk in the park compared to setting up all the fun stuff that comes with it lol. So far the only thing I've had trouble with is getting my ps2 to connect to my pc running windows vista home basic 32-bit. I've spent about a day and a half tinkering with it and haven't been able to get it to work. Also I've done quite a bit of Googling and I can't find a guide for vista anywhere. When I push X to start device the circle spins in the bottom right corner for around a minute but none of my ripped games are listed. I would really like to get this figured out since there's often little kids in my room who don't know any better than to leave discs laying bottom down everywhere lol. I would like to be able to load my games off of my computer just in case mine get ruined since I don't have a DVD burner to make backups. I'm not completely clueless when it comes to computers but I'm no expert. I would greatly appreciate if someone could send me or point me in theright direction of a somewhat user friendly guide to setting up OPL 0.8 to play games off of my computer running vista through Ethernet. Thanks in advance for any help. oh and I know all about the renaming the ISO to show up on OPL and using usbutil for games over 4gb since my hard drive is FAT32 format so that's not the problem.
It might help Official OPLv0.8 User Guides - tho not specific to Vista.
Disable your firewall and antivirus when you make tests.
Thanks for the replies but I remembered I have a computer with a fried motherboard that has a perfectly fine hard drive in it. I tested it out on my ps2 and it fit in the back and hdloader formatted it. I plugged it into the IDE ribbon in my working computer and already have most of my games on it and they work flawlessly so far. I'm just glad that the way I'm finally able to play my games with no disk is the most efficient way of doing so.
