In order for your PC to 'see' the drive, you need WinHIIP or PS2Handiness. If you don't do that, XP won't see it.

Honestly, if you own the old console, the big, fat PS2, I would recommend HD Loader/HD Advance and a hard drive in the back of the PS2. If you own the new, slim PSTwo, then go with USBExtreme. It's still new and it has a dismal success rate with games. And it's slower than if you had a HD in the back of your PS2.

HDL/HDA automatically format your HD when you stick in the disk.

Just hooked up the ps2 and it's asking for a ps or ps2 format disk?


To use the system you need official Sony Playstation or Playstation 2 game disks. Backup disks will not work without hacking your system, and are illegal.

Original Playstation (one) disks are hard to find at stores, but PS2 / Playstation 2 disks can be found cheaply at stores like 'Game Stop' or 'Walmart'

Good Luck

Playstation 3 hard disk files corrupted???


hey ash,

ps3 Hard drive needs to be manually reformatted and checked for bad sectors.

as what youve said, you already formatted it and yet it still says there is a corrupt system file.

when i say "manually formatted" you have to clearly take the hard drive out and format it using another pc or ps3.

Ps2 (slim)


Well first off, make sure the disk if in PS1 OR PS2 format. That is what the PS2 Is requesting when it says "Please insert Playstation or Playstation 2 format disk. The Slim PS2 has various problems reading disk.(Don't Know why? I own it and Know it does). The Fat version(1st version) is a much better system, in my opionion. Try blowing air to clean the disk reader. Or changing the disk reader portion out, At a small price.

Formatting


Hi,

By formatting a disk, your actually creating a Blank-Disk.

The PS2 won,t read a blank disk.

is your console Saying " disk format Unknown "

This is a completely different Issue.

In this case, the PS2 does not play this type of Disk.

Hey buddy FORMAT DISC means PAL games or NTSC games format.

There are 2 formats dics in this world for the PS1,PS2,PSP,Wii,Gamecube.etc

They are [NTSC] and [PAL]

[NTSC] is for North America and Japan ONLY. [NTSC] is Original games.

[PAL] is for Asia Only. Which is copied games form the Originals.

I need to know were did you bought PS2 Console from ?

If you bought it in North America or Japan then you have to buy and play Original games from North America Only.

If you bought your PS2 in Asia then you can play copied games.

It is most likely your PS2 is a NTSC, your PS2 cant read any PAL games so it will say format dics.
