Hard Drive) With Playstation 2 (PS2) 12 12 Jan Jan 99 Votes Foreword: After a year

Foreword: After a year and a half later, I have decided to re-write this guide, because honestly, it was not my own and it was presented very poorly. Remember, I do no support piracy. Use the USB method to play your games on the hard drive to help your PS2 laser last longer. The performance will vary, but that is up to you if you want to stick with it. Good luck! (6-13-09) ~Versatile

IMPORTANT NEWS (5-1-10): It seems that there are a lot of dishonest users on the Internet that are copying this guide without giving credit back to me, Versatile. Because of this, I will be looking to update all the pictures in this article to have a watermark. We have an active team scouring the net for those who have copied this article. If caught, we will be forced to take action against you. This is your warning. –

[Update: 1/15/08] I have gotten Viewtiful Joe 2 to copy to my hard drive, and I was able to boot off the hard drive and play it on the PS2. Now my laser will live longer! All help will be given in the comments as usual.

[Update 11/25/08] I am so frickin sick of people asking why their game doesn’t work and all they see is a black screen. Is it because your game isn’t compatible? Check out this list below and stop whining, or use swap magic and ditch the whole USB hard drive all together. The USB 1.1 performance IS NOT WORTH IT in my eyes.

Introduction

The PS2 is a great console. After 9+ years, it is still going strong. With the new $99 price point, more and more people are getting the PS2 to play old school PS2 games. What better way to preserve your games and your PS2 laser than playing off the USB interface? This guide is based off of Swap Magic implementation.

Wait, you can play games off the USB interface?

We are almost done. Let’s enable fast transfer speeds on your USB drive before we start copying games.

Enabling fast USB hard drive transfer speeds:

Go to My Computer->Properties->Hardware->Device Manager->Disk Drives-> (external one My Computer->Properties->Hardware->Device Manager->Disk Drives-> (external one here)->Properties->Policies->Optimize for performance. Speed varies from from 1MBps to about 10-15MBps, which is pretty fast! Also, do not forget to unplug the device the proper way (that is Unplug or eject hardware) when you remove the USB drive!

Installing games onto your USB hard drive:

This is pretty easy. We have two methods. Method one uses the “ul_install.exe” command, and method 2 uses the USBExtreme.exe windows software. Both programs do the same job, and the second program is easier to use for those who are novices.

The comments have had more off-topic chatting, lately. You don’t talk about your favorite games here and you especially don’t ask someone whether they got your emails. Think before you post and add almost everything you have in mind in a single post. And try to careful to not to double post! Keep in mind, comments are almost like FAQs.

I recommend you all to talk about off-topic stuff via IMs. Just swap your ids with eachother!

Hi Dustin, i had the same problem as yours. I have the same modchip on my ps2. The reason why u get the black screen is due to the macro vision fix enabled on ur modchip. To disable it, boot your ps2 without any disk, and as soon as u press the power on button press triangle and circle at the same time. U will enter in a menu with many options, look for macro vision fix there and disable it. This should work now, i dont know why your ps2 does not read tht disk. Still try it, and if still it does not work, try burning a new cd.

Hi!

Works perfect for me been disappointed.

pm 1 0 Rate This Hi! Works perfect for me been disappointed. . I’ve had my

. I’ve had my PS2 & SwapMagic 3.6 for many years and never

However, after switching my TV in the room, the burned discs couldn’t read PAL anymore and so I packed away my PS2 and lived on the glorious moments we shared.

But now, after some room cleaning, I eventually came across my old SwapMagic, which led me to my PS2 and after that my spirit burned intensly and I became eager to play some old favorites (SC, FF-series, GTA etc.)

But then I wondered, how much longer would my PS2 last? (considering its age and the abuse of the slidetool) And it was at that point I finally recognized the 2x USB-ports :O. I wondered what the heck they could be used for so I googled a bit and came straight into this awesome guide.

Long story short – Works perfect following your steps! Now I just have to find my old memorystick but man…the PS2 sounds much happier when it doesn’t have to chew on a disc

sounds much happier when it doesn’t have to chew on a disc Thanks and cheers from

Thanks and cheers from Sweden! Josef

ps. Haven’t tried PS1 games on my PS2 yet, got tons of em´ just laying on the floor and chillin´ ;D ds.

@Prashantcruise I buy it from somewhere store and it is not original disc and there is no files on my External HDD because it is newly formatted to FAT32. My console model number is SCPH-77006. I already tried two games to install StarOcean and GodofWar II but the error still pops up. =(
