    Yes it asks me to plug in my controller to the USB port. No i dont have a game in the drive. Thats the symbol that comes up, the multi coloured symbol.

    Do you have a PS2 game in the drive? You should only see the multi-colored PS symbol which is used for the PS2 and PS3 now.

    Also, does it ask you to plug the controller into the USB port?

    Could you please give more information. That way I can help you to the best of my ability. Thanks!!

Ok, plug in your controller and press the little PS button in the middle of the controller. Then it will prompt you to do a set-up. Choose your system language, then set the date and time. Next it will ask you to set up your newwork configuration so you can go online. You can cancel this and do it later under system settings. Now the XMB should show up, which is the main menu. All you have to do now is pop in a game or movie and enjoy. If you have any further questions or problmes, feel free to ask me. Good luck and happy gaming!!

Backwards compatability


actuallly a lot of ps2 games can be played with the HDMI connected. I do it all the time... however yes the 60 gig will not play every ps2 game and there is a whole slew of the 60 gigs that are not backwards compatable at all. check it out on wikipedia's page on the ps3.

I haven't had a problem with any ps2 game yet, and the only ps game that I own that hasn't played on my ps3 is FF8.

Your PS2 is definitely broken. Either send it in to Sony to be repaired or buy a new PS3. Bummer. Sorry to hear about this.
