Re: how to modify ps2

Good.. now listen to me carefully... i live in Mauritius and i modify ps1-2-3 everyday.. there is a simple way that nobody would think how to mod it.... just remove the lens slowly, cut the yellow wire and seal the red with the blue... thats will make your lens hidden power arise so as it can read any dvd or cd copy... let your brain work!!! how its possible that an original lens cannot play a simple duplicate!!!!

Yeah, be very careful where you post what. the Feds have already raided multiple modders, because this is a copyright infringement.

Re: how to modify ps2

O.K. Now I am going to teach you all how to Easily mod your ps2 system .
1), unplug the ps2 unit,
(sounds simple but some peeple.......)
2) remove the screws in the bottom of the case with
a philips head scewdriver.(you must first peel off the little spongy plastic tabs that cover them and serve as non slip 'feet' also you must remove (and try to save is possible) the little sticker that says warrenty seal etc....couse its gonna get broken any way when the bottom comes off. then locate the laser lens (the part that reads the disc .... You there ?? OK now take some lanthanide paste and polish the lens with it. after that super glue will do the trick to stop the "door ajar" light from comming on .then solder the two leads that dont go any where to the peice you took out of the old smoke detector . then reasemble the entire unit
being carefull not to come in contact with alpha particles or Thorium.
please remember to play safe and do not play your ps2 near anyone with a pacemaker.

Re: how to modify ps2 modify, i assume you mean to play backup games. Install a modchip..."matrix infinity" is suppose to be the best out there nowadays. I don't recommend the swap magic because it's a hassle for me and not 100% to play all backups.

Hey, do you know, in my country Malaysia we got someone that can upgrade PSOne console to be able to play PS2 console game :) but I wonder, how they do that...?? That the problem, and I wish someone who...

The only way someone can get a PS1 to play PS2 games is if they modified a PS2 to look like a PS1. The hardware inside a PS1 is not powerful enough and not complex enough to run PS2 games. They would need to take a PS1, and take the insides out. Then take the insides of a PS2 and modify it so it functionally fit inside a PS1. This seems like cool albeit pointless way to modify your PS1 and PS2. Thanks for the question!

How i can unlock ps2 to play pirate games

sorry buddy you cant unlock a ps2 to play pirated games. but depending on what kind of ps2 you have you can modify it to play your copied games if it is a fat ps2 you will need to buy a modchip for it or if you have a slim ps2 like mine all you have to do is order some swap magic discs at or .com then modify your slime line with a fliptop cover or the cheap free way is to use the tape and tissue mod that i use( just google tape and tissue mod) i play all my copied games and they work just fine. you can even play the classics such as sega genesis or supernes. is an awsome website for all your ps2 modding needs it has all the guides from burning games to modding your ps2 ^^ hoped tht helps

My stuff din't work with pirated cd's?

There are multiple "Mods" which can be performed on a PSP (as well as on newer consoles as well).

Some are hardware mods (the addition of chips which expand or bypass (depending on a particular mod) to allow the recognition and playback of various formats, such as 3rd party software. The problem with modding is that if someone isn't careful, the mod can also brick the system (keep it from recognizing the original, retail PS2 games, movies, etc....

Besides that, I can't tell you much more about pirating software, since it's illegal and I'm no advocate of that. You should ask your friend what specific "Mod" was performed, if that's even the case.

PS.. My advice - Don't let anyone modify the hardware on any of your devices, unless you don't care if they ever work again. Also, you can't play online games/content with modded systems...since they are automatically detected and banned from the servers.

Modifying ps2?

Depends on what you want. Note that modifying your PS2 in any way voids your warranty. Original PS2's I'm not so sure about. It involves opening the console, though, and I'm sure you can find a video on youtube if you look for it. But since you can't do any modification that won't involve a modchip, you'd better be prepared to solder a chip on there.

Slim PS2's you have a better variety of options. Tissue/Tape mod which blocks two censors and the disc brake, allowing you to use the Swap Trick or get good use out of a Swap Disc.

If you get a swaptool, or make one, you can do this on both the original PS2 and the slimline PS2.

Look up Free_MCBoot, and have an empty memory card ready. Either use the swap trick or use Swap Magic to install the memory card exploit. It'll contain ESR, which allows you to play burned games.

But there will be no support for your piracy, either. Not from the makers of Free_MCBoot, or the modchip makers, or even myself.

Hi how to burn a downloaded ps2 game into a dvd so i could play it with my console...tnx in advance...

Unfortunately, you cannot do this without doing a major modification of your PS2 or getting a a commercial grade PS2 burner for your computer.

The issue is that unlike regular DVD's, PS2 DVD Games spin counter-clockwise, therefore you need the games to be burned, counter clockwise.

A couple of years ago there were people out there selling modified PS2's and kits so you could modify your PS2 to play games burned clockwise. Do a google search and you may find them still.
