I do recall some time ago that action replay max or something like that had some sort of media player in it. I'm not sure how limited it is though in it's functions. I wouldn't use this method anyway. What i would do If i were you is softmod your PS2 then load an app called SMS(simple media system) then you can play pretty much w/e you want. MP3's Avi's etc etc.

You got a lot of work ahead of you, if you want to do this the correct way. You can prolly get away with using action replay max or some other code breaker like disk that has a built in media player in it. You may get lucky and you may not. Reason I say this is, yes there are usb ports, no they don't read every single usb device on the market. SMS is more current and updated and supports way more USB thumb drives n such then action replay max ever will.

Step 1: Either mod chip or softmod your PS2. Softmods don't require a chip and i put up a forum post on the subject

A - Z with pretty lil pictures.

Step 2: Download SMS found .::HERE::. and add that to your memory card when you're making your saved game file (refer to my forum post to see what that means) Then launch your PS2 menu and load SMS and you'll be able to read your MP3's from a thumb drive that the firmware on your PS2 will support.

OR: roll the dice and spend money on a couple code breaker disks (with embedded media player) that may or may not work. The method I posted is guaranteed to work provided you own a FAT PS2 and not the SLIMLINE. If you own a slimline model then you have ZERO choice but to try the codebreaker like disks with embedded media player.

Hope that helps,

I have a playstation 1 game that i play on my 3,

Yes, GameStop and EB games both sell an adaptor you can buy, I believe it's around $20 that allows you to save and copy your data from the PS3. I have Gran Turismo 3 and I had just about everything in it on my PS2; I thought I had to start all over when I got my PS3 but I got one of these adapters and it worked wonders. Same applies for PS1 games.

Good luck and if I've helped you please give me a good rating.

Need help with playstation slimline console not spinning disks when case is on

i dont understand why you could fix a problem by taking its shell off but... its possible the case was dislodged when it was on and put itself into a position where it impacted on the insides of the ps2. e.g pushing the laser out of place.

Playing mp3 songs on the ps3 --- 80gb

Whether you are hooking up your device through a USB cable or removable memory (SD card/Flash drive) the PS3 should recognize and play the titles. Here are a few steps to help you along.

1. Hook up device to your PS3

2. Select PS3 media icon where files files should be located

3. Press triangle button on controller

4. Sub menu will show up on side of screen

5. Select the 'display all' option

6. Files should now be accessable/loadable/playable

Playing files directly from the Mp3 player or loading them on the hard drive are both do-able and both methods should work.
