I'm trying to run a freeware BBC Micro emulator on my slimline PS2. I've got the emulator software burned onto a CD-RW, but I can't boot it up. When I put the emulator into the PS2's CD drive, the PS2 says it can't read the disc.
Here's an extract from the readme.txt file that comes with the emulator:
Having created the CD, boot it with your favourite method,
typically this involves swapping with an AR / GS CD.
If the CD has been created properly you will see the Beeb's
logo appear. Once the user-interface has loaded use your PS2
controller to move up and down the menu, press X to select and
'triangle' to cancel.
Alternatively, if you have a USB keyboard, use the cursor keys
to navigate the menu, press RETURN to select and ESCAPE to
Select "run emulation" after loading a disk or state.
To return to the user-interface, press the START button on your
controller or press the PAUSE button on your keyboard.
****** end of quote
I'm confused what it means by "boot it with your favourite method,
typically this involves swapping with an AR / GS CD". I've managed to figure out that AR means Action Replay, and GS means Gameshark. I've bought an AR cheat CD for a random game (Gran Tourismo 4), hoping that I could use it to boot the PS2, then swap the CD for the emulator one when prompted to do so. The AR CD booted fine, but when the PS2 prompted me to insert the GT4 CD and I inserted the emulator one, it just did nothing. Just a blank screen.
Has anyone got any ideas how I can boot up the PS2 so I can use the emulator? I want to keep the PS2 completely standard.
Many thanks for any suggestions you can make.
