Re: how to attach my hdd to my ps2

Hi butet,

It takes a lot of time to put pictures on this page. I prefer to just tell you to go to and go to support for the Playstation 2 and see all the pictures and procedure you need on setting up a Hard drive.

How can i unlock my ps2 to play download

There are a few options that I know of, all of which include phsyically modding the console.
As far as I know, there's no softmod for any playstation product (other than the PSP). You'll have to either add a mod chip (which usually involves desoldering the original CPU and soldering the mod chip into place) or get a flip top (if it's a fat PS2). The flip top version is easier, as you're just replacing the top of the outer shell.

PS2 Slim Silv won't turn on laser or move, disk no move...HELP..

When you replaced the laser, did you remove the shorting solder connection? These lasers are shorted to prevent static electricity from damaging the optics. There is an area on the optics that has a solder bridge that needs to be removed for proper operation. Check that first.

Let me know if you need anything else.

PS2 slim

Hi Krazylovin45,

here is your solution. The New Laser lens has a solder blob added to keep static from destroying the laser diode. You will need to remove the laser once more and get some solder wick and a soldering gun. Look on the outer edge near the grooved edge and you will see a solder blob on a narrow strip of ribbon cable. You need to remove this solder to get your new laser to work. If you need pictures, google "PS2 Laser Solder blob" and you should get some links to pics.

PS2 Wallpaper

This is something i,ve never Done.
But from what i,ve read, there must be some way to select the item, then press a button to select as backdrop.
the wallpapers are usually 800 x 600 pixels, so i,d assume any picture or similar, must be the same size.
heres a link for you to some ps2 wallpapers.
And another link, for more wallpapers with basic instructions:-
Stating right click set as background.
I hope this helps you, thankyou for your previous rating.
Best Wishes Mike @ Compurepair.

Copying games from PS2HDD to PS2 HDD using enclosure

Yep, the program you want is called WinHiip (easily googleable) Its a special program that reads PS2 Hard Drives only. DO KEEP IN MIND: you must have either an enclosure or put it on the IDE/SATA cable on your computer so your BIOS will detect it. WINDOWS WILL NOT DETECT THESE PS2 FORMATTED HARD DRIVES. However that does not matter, as long as your BIOS sees it. If your bios sees it, all is good, boot into windows and load WinHIIP. It will detect it. If you're using an enclosure then it really doesn't matter. Plug that into your USB port and turn it on. Your plug and play will recognize the enclosure. After windows sees it turn on WinHIIP and choose the "Select Drive" button and you should see your hard drive in the list. Then it's just a matter of choosing the "Copy Drive" option. Or take each out by it's own. Meaning "Extract Image/s" This will save them as ISO's on your computer then you just pop in your new drive and turn on WinHiip again and "add images" Back onto the new hard drive.
