Re: PS2 to Computer
Even though I understand your question, some what, I have to ask, why on earth would you want to do this.
How can I connect my PS 2 to play through my computer?
We need more clarification then this question offers. It makes about as much sense as my question:
How can I connect my toaster to play through my computer?
I'm just being an *** :P Seriously though, we need to know what you mean by your question.
Are you trying to control your PS2 through your computer?
Are you trying to just connect it to your computer so you can access stuff on the ps2?
Are you thinking that you can just connect your PS2 to your computer and use your computer to play games(wich you can't do, there is a much better method for this)
No one can help you unless you give us a question that is more clear on what you're trying to do. You can't just hook up a PS2 to your computer and play games on your computer with the disk in the PS2 drive. Nor would you want to. There is a much better solution for this. You get a piece of software called and emulator. Then you get a PS2BIOS.bin (fancy word for image of the PS2 firmware chip) then you put the game directly into your computers DVD-ROM drive. I have full instructions I have posted for someone else at the link below.

Keep in mind that the 20, and 40gb are not backwards compatible.There are two ways to do this. The easy way and the hard way.
Easy way: As long as your PS3 is connected to the internet go to PS store search PS2 system data and download.
Hard way: If you do not have a internet connection to your PS3 you will need either a USB flash drive or a memory stick. Plug one or the other into your computer and on that drive create a folder labeled PS3. Open that folder and create another one labeled UPDATE. Then proceed to the PSN site on your computer and search PS2 system data then download to the second file. Now take your card and plug into the PS3. Under settings select system update and then select (Update via storage media).
Originally your PS2 is preventing copied games and other formats like "PAL" (even though it is a orginal disc).There is an alternating way to play copied discs and all other.You need to get modify you PS2. contact this website www.swapmagic3.com you will find the right device.
I experienced the same problem. I have the ps2 slim. The problem was so bad that i had the slim for about 3 years and still could not play any ea games online. About 2 months ago i finally got it to work though, allowing me to play madden ncaa and many other sports games from ea. I also have dsl broadband just like you. I do not have a router though. I just hooked my ethernet cord straight into the back on the ps2, my computer is really close by. I would reccomend a router though.
Enough of this bs though. Now solving the problem. There was actually a firewall keeping me from connecting to ea servers. Which in turn meant no ea account and no ea play online. Go onto your computer and turn your FIREWALLS OFF. This still may not work though. I done this and an unknown firewall was still blocking it. THERE WAS A FIREWALL IN MY MODEM.
CALL UP YOUR INTERNET SERVICE PEOPLE AND TELL THEM TO TAKE THE ******* THING OFF SO U CAN ******* PLAY. I ALSO FOUND THAT LIMEWIRE WOULD NOW WORK ON MY COMPUTER AS WELL.
By doing this you will open peer to peer connections with other programs and players online.
It should play Cd, Cdr, and DVD as well. If it will play PS2 and ps1, it should have not problem playing the other three. If your discs are dirty that was cause it not to read. If its more can you please expand on what is happening.
