If your PS2 is made pre-2009 (has a manufacturer number less than 9xxxxxxxx) then you can use a bootloader to unlock the USB and hardrive to play "backed up" games and AVI movies.
You will need on of these things: 1) an original copy of 007 Agent Under Fire or an original PS1 game, to use as a "trigger" disk. 2) a original copy of Gameshark, SwapMagic, or CodeBreaker for PS2 (DL'ed copies wont work)
and you will need: 1) a memory card plugged into your PS2 slot 1 2) a USB drive
Now do this:
Load the boatloader ELF file from a burner "backup copy" of your 007 disk (using the "disk swap trick" on your "sensor-modded" PS2. I used ESR Disk Patcher and Apache V1.1 to alter the TOC values of the ELF file and "patch" the ISO file before burning, and I used the disk swap trick after playing level one of the game, saving, and then loading the "driving level" (level 2).
OR use SwapMagic or similar tool to load the bootloader. You can find Youtube videos detailing this process.
Install Free McBoot onto your memcard using the bootloader. You can use the "noobie package", use google to find this and put the files onto yor USB card. Voila! Now you can play AVI files or "backed up" games from USB or hard-drive, among other fun things.
If your PS2 works fine with most
of the games and won’t play a few..Then you should try this trick to play them
too on your PS2:
Turn on your PS2 without
inserting any disc.
Menu screen will
Press the (triangle) Button to enter Version
Information Menu that looks like
Highlight the Play Station
Driver as above and again press (triangle).
New screen will appear like
Highlight the Disc Speed
as above and press X button,to enter Disc Speed Menu
And set it from Standard to
After you set Disc Speed to Fast,Press and HoldReset Button to turn off your console.
Then again Press and Hold Reset
Button till the Blue Light turns on.
Remove the Reset Button and
Press it again.
patient and wait till thegame loads itself. If your lens is in good condition then
it will play game in first go else try again till it PLAY your game. If still
your Grand Turismo 4 DVD wont work then you must clean your PS2 lens.Watch following video to learn about cleaning lens: Thank you and Good Luck!
I had a problem like this before. If you look underneath the games some will have a silverr colour while others will have a puple colour. My old Ps2 would only play the silverish games while it wouldnt recognise the purple ones.
I had the same problem with my ps2. I found a solution that might help you. take a Q-tip and dip it in rubbing alcohol or water just intil damp. gently clean the eye and the rest of the disk tray. then dry it the other end of the Q-tip. when the eye dirty with dust or a hair or a small speck of paper or plastic from a disk will slow the ps2 down when loading. hope this helps!
The Purpose behind the guide to you is emulate your exploit disk, instead of using the disk you use, you're storing the exploit files themselves to your memory card ie. you're ps2 menu and HDloader and any other .elf file. Then you're using the PS1 (retail) game to cause a buffer overflow exploit to load the elf files stored on your memory card, once this is done you get that modified PS2 menu. As I said in the first clairication request the swapping stuff doesn't pertain to you becuase you have a mod chip installed. The main purpose for you to use what i posted eariler was to give you your modified .elf PS2 menu back (cuz all of your tools were stored before on your exploit CD wich is a non retail burned copy) this gives you a way to boot up with things that are native to the PS2 (memory card and retail PS1 game) from the .elf PS2 menu you should be able to see better what is going on becuase you can access each disk type contents from that menu and should be able to launch the game (if your laser lense is functioning enough to read retail PS1 games) from the menu itself. Or if you've been using HDloader plop that .elf onto the memory card (explained on my site) and just navigate to that via the .elf PS2 menu and you'll at least be able to load games stored on your hard drive. This is just something you can use till you get your new PS2 chipped out.
Of coarse this is all speculation. If your PS2 can't even read retail PS1 games none of this will even work.
Sry I don't know anyone that does the chipped stations nemore. I'm sure someone on this site still does though.
its a ps2 problem open the ps2 up if its a big ps2 not a mini and dust it the dust is making it harder for your ps2 to read disks open it dust it and itll be like barnd new if its a small ps2 i dont know dusting the thing always help dust with somthing small a cotton ball or ear swab will work
the reason it makes the "grinding" noise is because the motor that moves the lens to read the disk is dieing, this generally happens when you have played your ps2 for a long time, this only happens to older consoles.
It's a well known fact PS2's had a cheap lazer fitted to them, that's why when it gets chiped to play copy games, not long after it starts playing up.
The lazer may just need aligning, purchase a cd/dvd cleaning cd rom as these can check audio, lazer alignment and clean the lens.
