Well the reason your USB won't work is probably from it being old. For most games that use USB run off of a program called FAT32. You need a new USB Flash, I recommend getting a new SanDisk a wal-mart for about 10-40 bucks. Those have FAT32.

My ps2 won't play DVD please help me


Playing DVDs on a PS2 is a hit-and-miss venture. Sometimes they play well, but many times they won't. Very unreliable. Not much you can really do about it, either.

Playing PS2 Games on a PS3 - Check Backwards Compatibility


Not all PS3 consoles have the capability to play PS2 games. Sony have removed PS2 compatibility altogether from the new PS3 slim and the later version PS3s only have limited capability to play PS One games.

This Tip is written to help you determine if your console is backward compatible for PS2 games.

First locate the model number of your PlayStation 3 system by finding the bar code sticker at the back of the console. Underneath the bar code you will see the 11-digit serial number followed by the model number which begins with "CECH".

Models that have PS2 game compatibility are first generation consoles and the versions are 80GB, 60GB and 20GB. These PS2 compatible consoles will all have 4 USB ports which is another useful identifier.

See below for a breakdown of the model numbers that are compatible with running PS2 games;

1) Model No: CECHE01 - These are 80 GB models with 4 USB ports. (Please note 80GB models with 2 USB ports are not compatible).

2) Model No: CECHA01 60 GB models

3) Model No: CECHB01 20 GB models

Another important factor here is the PS2 games themselves.

Even if you have one of these consoles, a PS2 game may run fine on one version say the 60GB but may not work on the 80GB.

If you have identified that you have one of these consoles and want to check if a particular game is compatible with it use the link below. You can enter the exact console you are using - then enter the PS2 game you want to play;

This will give a definitive answer on compatibility between a particular PS2 game you want to play and the actual console you have.

I do hope this Tip has clarified the issues for you.

My ps2 scph-70012 runs only sony disks , i cant run copied disks of my friends ..... can u help me ???... i just want to run copied disks ..


You won't be able to play any pirated games without installing a mod chip in your ps2 or without having some sort of software/codebreaker running from a USB drive attached to the ps2. Software such as Swap Magic (you can google it) and a flip/slide tool (a plastic card will do) will allow you to do this but it is illegal and I don't recommend it.

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

Thank you for choosing FixYa!

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 usb port


The usb ports on the ps2 can be used for a keybord with games like everquest online or a headset with games like socom, i'm sure there are other uses for them also but thats the only ones i can think off of the top of my head.
