Memory Card Reader??
Erm I JUST got an idea which I know nothing baout but i am going to say it maybe someone know were to start...
Could anyone mmake an adapter from serial port or usb or paraller port, TO a small box which you can insert your memory card in.
example: like the one attached (red port is the one for memory card the one which should work) unless you can make them both working :P
By this we could make a program that could read and write from usb araller or serial port ONTO the memory card without involding a ps1 or ps2 !!
If someone would like to make it more complicated, he couls also try to make the joypad port work so you can read and write onto a memory card for ps 1 and s2 purposes, and play computer games using ps2 or ps1 oypad for pc game purposes... all from the front panel in a ps2 !!
dunnot know anything were to start but i gave my idea!! its up to programmers and technicians if they wish to use this idea
there already is. it's called a dexdrive, and from what i've heard, it sucks.
theres a couple other readers out there also, dont remember any names tho.
oh ... didn't know that! I was wondering maybe our forum technicians would make this a better thing than the one you called the dexdrive :D
Hope one of you rpelyes with a start for it or maybe a solution because it would be very usefull .... speaking of which maybe you could even connect the ar2 v2 to it and update it throu internet directly !!!
Just thought I'd also add you can get the dexdrive from www.lik-sang.com, but I have no idea if it's any good. Could be helpful though if you wanted to make your own :)
COME ON PEOPLE think about this lets develope this ... we make LOADS OF FANTASTIC STUFF all ourselves here at this forum.... Can this be another one? btw thanks acestes
like i already said, there are other products.
but since it isnt a huge hassle to do it with the network adapter, or jsut move the ps2 to the computer and use a usb cable, most people probably dont give a shit.
oh.. f*** to bad i dont know programming on pc and usb interfecing ..... grr thanks anyway
ive got a dexdrive it doesnt work for ps2
Deathwish, I have exactly what you mention ATTACHED on my laptop as i speak :)
It's been developped FOR A VERY LONG TIME.
Although it works OK for EVERY PSX pad type (DualShock, DualShock2,...), it ONLY works with PS1 memory Card.
Because PS2 cards are protected with Magic Gate, I think the software i currently use for PS1 memory card doesn't work.
Here are links you can find useful :

It's fairly easy to build and absolutely great to play emulators; send memory card saves to a pal, or hack saves on your pc, etc...
I can prolly take a pic if you want me to ;)
YAHOO thanks buddy. first two picutres are basicly the same right? and the fouth url i dont get it :P and the third one is ok :P
thanks a lot mate !! some one wanna try to continue this work !!!
