- You need to have a software called USB Advance or USB Extreme(search the internet)
- Write this software using DVD Decrypter onto a blank CD-R.
- Insert the disc into the playstation 2.
- You should have a USB Pen drive ready, of capacity minimum 4 GB.
- Alongwith the USB Advance, you will get a software for your PC to convert the downloaded games into the games playable through USB.
- Open the software, browse for a game file, and convert it.
- Now insert the pen drive into your computer and copy the converted game files into the pen drive.
- Remove the pen drive from computer and insert it in your PS2.
- Boot your PS2 with the USB ADvance CD in it and now select the game and press the 'X' button to play!

I like to put 2 Games in my USB how to do it ?


Do what exactly, copy games from your pc to your usb and then attempt to play them? If so, it's not going to happen, the ps2 will only play games burned to disc, and if it's an illegal copy of a game, you would need a ps2 that has been modified to play burned games. If your talking about save files, you would need an adapter for you memory card to usb port and would have to move the data from your pc to the card.

Playing PS2 Games on a PS3 - Check Backwards Compatibility


Not all PS3 consoles have the capability to play PS2 games. Sony have removed PS2 compatibility altogether from the new PS3 slim and the later version PS3s only have limited capability to play PS One games.

This Tip is written to help you determine if your console is backward compatible for PS2 games.

First locate the model number of your PlayStation 3 system by finding the bar code sticker at the back of the console. Underneath the bar code you will see the 11-digit serial number followed by the model number which begins with "CECH".

Models that have PS2 game compatibility are first generation consoles and the versions are 80GB, 60GB and 20GB. These PS2 compatible consoles will all have 4 USB ports which is another useful identifier.

See below for a breakdown of the model numbers that are compatible with running PS2 games;

1) Model No: CECHE01 - These are 80 GB models with 4 USB ports. (Please note 80GB models with 2 USB ports are not compatible).

2) Model No: CECHA01 60 GB models

3) Model No: CECHB01 20 GB models

Another important factor here is the PS2 games themselves.

Even if you have one of these consoles, a PS2 game may run fine on one version say the 60GB but may not work on the 80GB.

If you have identified that you have one of these consoles and want to check if a particular game is compatible with it use the link below. You can enter the exact console you are using - then enter the PS2 game you want to play;
http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/CompatibleStatus

This will give a definitive answer on compatibility between a particular PS2 game you want to play and the actual console you have.

I do hope this Tip has clarified the issues for you.

I ve got sony ps2 in india and i always have to get a new gaming cd. is there any option to unlock my ps2 so that i even use pirated cds on it.


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.

How to play ps2 games on ps3


Ok well here is the "Skinny" 1). 20GB has no chrome trim, no memory card reader and no wi-fi. Not manufactured anymore. Has the best backwards compatibility with PS2 games due to Emotion Engine (PS2's CPU) and Graphics Synthesizer (PS2's GPU) installed.
2). NTSC 60GB has the same backwards compatibility as 20GB version, also has memory card reader and wi-fi. Has a chrome trim.
3). 80GB - extended memory, but reduced backwards compatibility with PS2 games, it has only Graphics Synthesizer (PS2's GPU). Around 80% of PS2 games can be played. Available only in NTSC regions.
4). 40GB - can't play PS2 games at all (all PS2 chips were removed), has 2 USBs instead of 4, no memory card reader, has wi-fi. Avalable in black and white colors. White is on sale only in Japan. Uses 65nm technology (lower power consumption). Improved cooling system. It's the latest version. 40GB doesn't support SACD.
5). PAL 60GB - reduced backwards compatibility with PS2 games. it has only Graphics Synthesizer (PS2's GPU). Around 80% of PS2 games can be played.
Wi-fi included in all models, except 20GB.
