copy playstation 2 games to the hard drive

ps2

using a standard ata/ide hard drive (up to 120 gb) and a tools like hdloader and hdadvance you can copy all your playstation games to the drive, which makes them load faster and will cut down on wear-n-tear on the discs. just make sure you’re just doing this with the games you own.

    hey, i was wondering if you could use this hack to add other things to the hdd, like teamspeak. becuase my brother plays FFXI but only on his ps2. and on the rest of the groups cpus we have Teamspeak. so is there a way to install like say linux or anything on his hdd to install teamspeak. becuase i know ppl that have installed linux on their xbox’s, so shouldnt it be about the same process? email me plz.

    I’m a lazy retard who can’t read or follow simple instructions. Will someone come to my house and install a hard drive on my PSOne? If you could buy the stuff I need first, that would be best. Also, I’ll need help copying my games so plan on staying a while.

  12. jedihermit says:

    I’ve used winhiip to copy games to the hard drive that plugs into the network adaptor. My dvd drive is dead so I haven’t got it to bboot anything yet but winhiip will format and copy image files for you.

    Hi, I was wondering how exactly do you copy a psx game onto a cd so I can play it on an emulator. The file type is an iso for the game I have downloaded.

  21. Tim says:

    As far as I know you can’t play loaded PSX off the ps2 at the momment . Perhaps there is support for that later on.

    ePSXe can play ISO files. If you want to burn iso files to CD use burnatonce (FREE) from http://www.burnatonce.com

    For those who want to add a harddisc to your ps2 and have the old type of ps2 you simply buy a ethernet /network adapter. Plug your harddisc to the back and stick inside your ps2. If you have the newer / slim ps2 then you will need to get a usb enclosure (though it will be slow, thru USB1).

    Now a cheap way to play your backups. (without needing to buy hdloader or hdadvance)
    Find and read about the ps2 memory card exploit.
    Load the stuff onto your memory card.
    Insert your PSX trigger game.
    Start HDLoader from the memory card, and you’re ready to go.

    You can load games through network onto the harddisc, but that is slow using hdlserver. You could take the harddisc, attach to pc and use WinHiip as mentioned above.

  30. Zedemotinc says:

    Dose the standard PS2Harddrive the basic 1 the comes with ffxi Play ps2 games?

  31. KrazyK says:

    Check out http://ps2drives.x-pec.com/ for info on compatible drives for the PS2.

    A few points to make things a bit clearer.

    You cannot copy ‘backup’ DVD games to your HDD from using HDAdvance, it will only copy original DVD games to the HDD. However you can copy ‘backup’ CD based games with HDAdvance.

    To copy ‘backup’ DVD games to your HDD you will need a fliptop lid or slide tool to swap the discs.

    If you don’t have this then you WILL need to make an ISO image of your DVD on your PC then load the ISO onto your PS2 HDD.

    Using WinHip is the best way to copy you images across to your HDD via your PC. I connect my HDD with an IDE-USB adapter for speed.
    Get WinHip to format the HDD then load your .ISO images across using WinHip.
    Disconnect the HDD , stick it back in your PS2, load HDAdvance, select game, play.

    Beware: Not ALL games will play from the HDD, some have to be hacked, like GT4. Don’t be too disappointed if, after hours of imaging and copying, your game fails to get past the boot screen. GT4 got to the credits screen then died before it was hacked to work with the HDD.

    One final point:

    Your PS2 HDD should NOT be visible within Windows. Only WinHip will be able to view the drive. So don’t panic if you can’t see it. This is normal as the drive has non standard format for the PS2.

  37. biggdogg_1933 says:

    Question: I have downloaded a .rar file that has more one disk. How do you use winHIIP to install it on your PS2 hdd and make it work?

  38. izu says:

    any body who can give or send me external USB hard drive loader(or software) for all ps2 and ps2 slim through my mail box(wisezus@yahoo.com) and tell how i can send u the cost. thank

  39. tuna300 says:

    1 thing i am hoping to be released is the ability to load/play games from a network drive.

    i have 3 slim ps2, and with the built in ethernet port, all i wanna do is plug an ethernet cable ->pop in the “networkloader” CD ->load games from the network(LAN)(PC).

    hope this becomes a reality. :)

    I want to store games on a usb hard drive for my ps2… could you give me links to websites that sell the usb hard drive for your ps2 and show me how to put games on the hard drive?

  50. Apollyon says:

    You people who are downloading games and trying to play them on your PS2 are morons. That kind of activity is illegal! Even though I could tell you how to make them work, I WON’T! You need to buy the game and then you may copy it into a HDD installed in your PS2. The reason for bieng able to copy a game is stricly for backup purposes and to be able to store the origonal game so that is remains in good condition.
