I ve got sony ps2 in india and i always have to get a new gaming cd. is there any option to unlock my ps2 so that i even use pirated cds on it.


If your PS2 is made pre-2009 (has a manufacturer number less than 9xxxxxxxx) then you can use a bootloader to unlock the USB and hardrive to play "backed up" games and AVI movies.

You will need on of these things:
1) an original copy of 007 Agent Under Fire or an original PS1 game, to use as a "trigger" disk.
2) a original copy of Gameshark, SwapMagic, or CodeBreaker for PS2 (DL'ed copies wont work)

and you will need:
1) a memory card plugged into your PS2 slot 1
2) a USB drive

Now do this:

Load the boatloader ELF file from a burner "backup copy" of your 007 disk (using the "disk swap trick" on your "sensor-modded" PS2. I used ESR Disk Patcher and Apache V1.1 to alter the TOC values of the ELF file and "patch" the ISO file before burning, and I used the disk swap trick after playing level one of the game, saving, and then loading the "driving level" (level 2).

OR use SwapMagic or similar tool to load the bootloader. You can find Youtube videos detailing this process.

Install Free McBoot onto your memcard using the bootloader. You can use the "noobie package", use google to find this and put the files onto yor USB card. Voila! Now you can play AVI files or "backed up" games from USB or hard-drive, among other fun things.

I recently purchased a PS3 slim and I'm trying to set it up but the controller won't connect. It just flashes it's 4 red lights then stops. I'm using a PS2 connector cable. What do I do?


Huh? It's a wireless device that doesn't use a connector cable nevertheless a PS2 cable. All it needs is a standard USB cable with the connector that fits. Didn't your PS3 come with one of these? Mine did. I think what's happening with your controller, though, is that it needs to be charged... .with the USB cable... connected to the front of the unit.

What software can i use to play files from my flash drive using a ps2? Can i use Action replay or codebreaker or any other software?


well i would have to say that playing a game from a usb drive is not dependable, think about this for a second. The playstation 2 would have to somehow read the files on the usb drive, but then also take information off the drive to run the game. that usb port wont handle that much data, its just not possible to have ur ps2 trying to run a file on something that can only send so much data to it. Even a HardMOD[ meaning a chip is installed physicaly] its still hard to imagine someone trying to make that possible, but see if you have a Big ps2 then a hardrive is the only option, see the old ps2s were supposed to have a harddrive option but it endded up being a part of a game FFXI, so if you have a hardrive for the ps2 then you simply SoftMod it[ Software that mods the ps2 either threw the gamegenie or codebreaker and other programs, but the new ones dont have that option of a harddrive and if you have one you are out of luck using a harddrive as storage, but there is something called disc swapping.

see when you open ur ps2 tray theirs three or two buttons inside the slim ps2 that tell the ps2 when the dvd tray is open and thus it wont read a game till you close it.

but by tapping those key buttons down{ google how to do this,] you can burn a ps2 game and then with one legit ps2 game you first use the legit game and let it read then swap out the legit with any burned game and then one more swap and it allows you two play any burned game with just one legit game

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7x5JItxJCE&feature=related more detail and also when you downlaod iso's u use a burnig tool to put it on a dvd, and yes you dont need the original game.

Usb port


I'm sorry to say but no one can solve this for you. Your only coarse of action is to go to the website that created the software ie. Action Replay Max or Code Breakers or Game Shark and check their flash drive compatibility lists. Reason I say this is, due to the limitations of certain versions of PS2's some flash drives will not work period. Where as some will only work with certain software. It's the same rule of thumb(pun intended :P) with hard drives. You're completely at the mercy of your PS2 and it's firmware. There are programs that are designed to help like USB advance and USB extreme that would make some drives work that would normally not, but you'll be wasting money if it doesn't work. I'ld start with the sites that make the code disks and see what they recommend you use, that woud be the best coarse of action.

PS2 power ribbon Help!!!!!!


Use a pair of needle nose pliers and grip the connection end of the Ribbon cable by the hard plastic piece.  Insert this cable in the second connector from the front.  The connectors are located under the right edge of the CD drive.

PS2 power ribbon


Hi Anishpp

If it came loose from the buttons, you need to remove the button holder to get to the connector. Push he ribbon into the slot on the back of the buttons.

If it came loose from the motherboard, you will have to remove the guts of the PS2 to see the connector under the cd drive right side. This is done by removing 4 screws. Two are on either side of your Controller ports. Another one is located between the fan and power block. Another is to the left of the powerblock. lift the guts from the back and pull the system out. looking at the right side, plug the reset Eject ribbon into the 2nd connector from the front. Then put it all back together carefully.
