PS2 internal memory ON PS3 40GB console

Hi, I'm Rob, just wanting to know what the "PS2 internal memory" is all about on the PS3 40 GB console.
I've also noticed that the 60 GB PS3 console has PS2 compatability etc.
As you may know the 40gig model doesn't play PS2 games.

PS2 internal Memory is set aside so you have the ability to play PS2 games. Its basicly an Emulator.

Can not create internal memory card, whenever I try I returned back to the screen that says name a internal memory card.
Create an Internal Memory Card on the PLAYSTATION 3 system HDD as follows:

1. Navigate to [Memory Card Utility (PS/PS2)] under [Game] on the XMB.
2. Press “X” to bring up the “New Internal Memory Card” option.
3. Tell the PLAYSTATION 3 which format you want it to create. PS2 or PS1.
4. Highlight “OK” and press “X” to finish creating the memory card.

Note that you can make new saves on this card while playing PS2 or PS1 games on the PS3, but it does not allow you to transfer saves from a physical memory card to the PS3's HDD. You need the memory card adapter to do that.

How do i get ps2 games to play on my ps3

The only way how to play PS2 games on PS3 is to have the correct version of the console. Either your Playstation 3 can play PS and PS2 games or it can't, and there's not much to do about it. Most of the PS3 models simply cannot play older titles as they lack the necessary hardware and firmware. However, a few models do have backwards compatibility. The 20 Gb, 60 Gb, and original 80 Gb models all have backwards compatibility, either through hardware or software emulation. The other models lack backwards compatibility, so even knowing how to play PS2 games on PS3 won't help you out much here.

Can a ps2 play ps3 games

Some models can, the 60 GB model can play all PS2 games, the 80 GB can play pretty much all PS2 games, the lower end ones (I think the 20 and 40 GB can not play PS2 games). There is a rumor however that ALL PS3's will soon be able to play PS2 games with a software update.. that will not be available until a few months into the future, if ever.

Does guitarhero80s work with the guitarhero3 controller the wireless 1 on ps3

If it's the ps2 game then no
you will need a ps2 guitar controller and a usb to ps3 converter
with a memory slot and a ps3 with 60GB (not the 40 gb model)
It sucks to be sony!

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.

Besides the obvious size difference of being able to store more information on it, the difference is that the 80gb console is backwards compatibility out of the box with 70% of the ps2 games and with the proper updates the 80gb console can be 98% compatible with ps2 games. The 40gb console isn't compatible with any ps2 games. Hope this helps.
