Please do some reading before making people waste their time walking you through what you need to do.
You haven't even got the very basics yet, so do yourself and look it up on wikipedia: ps2 exploit. Click on the links on that page so that you understand what all of the terms mean.
Learn, and then come back and ask specific questions. I'm sure if you were "not new to console or pc hacking" then you'd know that you need to do reading first, otherwise you dont even know what to ask or what you're asking which is your current situation.
I know exactly what you're talking about here, but I'm looking for a workaround. I live out in the middle of the country, about 2 hours drive from any gamestore. So buying a PS1 Game isn't feesable right now. I have a gameshark V2 disk for PS2, and I've hard you can use that as a swap disk. I have a V4 PS2 (A Friend told me due to the fact I got a GT3 Package) and I know what I need to do, BUT I'm looking for a workaround so that I don't have to borrow a car and make a 4 hour trip for a PS1 game. I understand I need an exploit to be put on my memory card. How I get it there is the problem.
v4 Original Type PS2
Compatible 10 GB Hard Drive, Pre-formatted now for Ps2
Prince of Persia The Two Thrones PS2 Image
PSP with USB Cable, 1GB and 512 MB memory sticks
An original Pressed PS2 Game
Ps2 Memory Card
Now help me, and stop being an ass hole.
Look...even IF you get the exploit on your memory card you STILL need a ps1 game to trigger the exploit. If you are going to have to drive to town anyway save yourself the trouble and buy a swap magic disk also. Nobody is trying to be an asshole, but don't expect people to hold your hand while you get this set up. READ the posts in this forum and you'll find everything you need has already been covered 100 times over. We can't help you if you won't even help yourself.
Ok, So I've called town, all the electronics shops and even an underground store, and there are no swapmagic disks. A PS1 game will work? Looks like I'm going for a drive.
If you don't have a method for swapping in a disk (ie OLD gameshark prior to 2.0 or swapmagic disk) don't bother. The ps1 game is only for triggering the exploit once installed. You cannot use a ps1 disk for swapping...period. Google for a place to buy swapmagic online.
I've got a gameshark v1 disk somewhere. BUT. What PS1 games will work with the hack? Where can I find a list?
ANY ps1 game will work. You just have to set it up using the disk id.
