PS2 w/ broken dvd drive - can I resurrect it with freemcboot?
I just dug up my old ps2 that has a disc read error when trying to run DVD's. It still reads CD's just fine.
Can I use freemcboot + HDloader to sideload my games?
I know how to get freemcboot installed using my friends working PS2. From reading hdloader tutorials I found that I wuold need a trigger cd in the PS2 drive to load the ISO games from the harddrive. If so, can I use a ps1 games to be the trigger disc since my ps2 reads CD games, or has that trigger limitation been worked around by now?
The only IDE harddrive i found is 40gb (like 10 games :/). Can i rotate my games on the harddrive using FTP, or I am stuck physically moving the hard drive?
**I am not trying to pirate anything. And if this cannot be openly discussed, PM me. I just want to find out before wasting my time and money instead of junking this thing.
