USB Stick used as a Mem.Card?
USB Stick used as a Mem.Card? –
i have a modded "Slim PS2" (Infinity Chip)
everything works fine and all but...... its time i bought anther Mem.card
so i was wondering if theres anyway to use a USB Stick as a Mem.card of some type?
(Since the PS2 has 2 USB ports)
what do you think?
128MB USB stick is a LOT better then paying SONY $25 for 8MB
It is impossible for games to save directly to USB sticks. It would have been possible to design them for that but it hasn't been done, so forget about it. But you can use a USB stick to backup saves.

Those games will not accept a save copied back and forth from a USB stick, as the special attribute flags will be lost then. Such games will need a special backup program to ensure that all MC attributes are restored when a save is transferred back from the USB to MC. Most modern 'cheat' systems include such backup support (GameShark/ActionReplay, Codebreaker, etc)
Another way to cope with lots of saves is to get a larger (non-Sony) MC. I have two 32MB MCs myself which have served me very well. But be careful if you go this route. The latest huge MCs (64MB and 128MB) are reported to have serious compatibility problems, and some old models (of various sizes) require a special boot disc, meaning that they will NOT work with normal games but just as backup units. The ones I use (Datel '32MB MAX MEMORY') work with everything though, and have never given me any trouble.
