Re: ps2


I believe the SCPH-version 30000 through 50001 use the UBD ports for Playstation Specific Devices like the eyetoy.  The Slim PS2 has is more diversified and can read USB devices just like a computer.  To get details on your PS2, you can get detailed instructions at  sign up and go to Support for your older version PS2 and read up on connecting to the USB port.  You may find out how to actually do it. I have not tried my self.  I wish I could help more.

I created a music cd with mp3 format music. And my xbox wont read it.

thats because its in mp3 format. you dont have to have a disc to get music on your 360. theres a usb outlet in the back of the xbox next to the av cable connecter. if you got a usb cord just hook it up to the xbox. you should then be able to download content.

How do I download music onto my Psp 300?


Please try the following:

  1. Step 1 First, add connect your PSP with your computer using your USB, but you have to go to "settings" and click on "USB connection"
  2. Step 2 When your PSP is connected to your computer, a hard drive will appear [for example: hard drive (F:)]. That hard drive is for your PSP
  3. Step 3 Click on that hard drive and make a folder called "music"
  4. Step 4 Finally, open your folder full of musics and drag musics you like in the the "music" folder
  5. Step 5 Finally, when you disconnect your PSP with your computer, go to "Music" on your PSP and listen to your favorite songs!
Hope it helped.

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 heres for a phat ps2 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.

HD drive problem

For your PS2 to play in HD you need to to have HD cables for that. You can buy these at your local wal-mart. You can't just hook up regular cables for it. Make sure your T.V. is HD too.

Trying to get ps2 to play on new tv..

USE a VCR between the PS2 and the Sylvania TV.  Hook the PS2 A/V cable RCA connectors( Red, Yellow, White) to one of the the Video input RCA connectors( Yellow, Red, White) on the VCR. Hook the VCR Cable output to your Sylvania Cable input. Set the Sylvania Tv to channel 3 or 4.  Set the VCR channel to Line 1 or Line 2.  This should work. I hope it helps you.
