Possible to rip the Sharkport to the HD?
Possible to rip the Sharkport to the HD? –
Yeah, my CD's getting a bit messed up and my PS2 has a hard time detecting it so I was wondering if I can just rip it off into my PS2's HD and run it with HDloader or something.
Otherwise...is there a way to rip the Sharkport .elf file or something?
PS: I'm using the memory card exploit to boot-up my stuff BTW.
yes , it's possible to make a copy of sharkport cd to your HD... I've already done it without any problem...(no mode needed)
I used cdgen to make the BIN image
dabbler i had trouble as well i couldnt get mine to work on pc or ps2
Really? I followed cfc2001's advice and ripped the PS2 cd using cdgen (ie. Just drag and drop the PS2 CD's contents over to the cdgen program) and then I clicked on the IMG button. I then transferred it over to my HD using hdl_dumb 8.0 and it worked like a charm.
I think it took a couple of errors for the program to get rid of all the bad sectors though. I thought the program froze but since the CD drive was still scanning I just left it on and went to sleep. Once I woke up it was done. What exactly is going wrong with your transfer?
PS: Do NOT use the HDloader program to transfer the Sharkport CD over. I left it on for over an hour and it was only at 3%. If you really want the program you have to plug the hard drive into your computer and transfer it from there. You can either plug it into your PC directly (via the IDE cables) or through enclosures.
forgive my unintelligence but what does sharkport do? (I have been modding the xbox since 02 sorry )
It lets you copy saves between a PS2 a PC. It isnt really needed if you have a way of booting elfs though, since you can just use FTP...
cheers mate, working on the mc exploit as we speak
if i rip gameshark 2 to my hdd can i still use sharkport?
what compatability mode do i use?
i thought sharkport was that thing that let you boot ps1 backups... i must have it wrong.
