    VERY out of the loop, trying to backup/upgrade my old PS2

    I am VERY out of the loop so I have no idea what the PS2 scene is like these days. I have been getting back into my old systems, and I want to backup my PS2 HDD that I have not touched in years just to be safe, what would be a good modern tool to attempt to do this? My HDD was actually not being...

    Hit the Screenshot limit, question about if I can move then recover screenshots.

    So I was taking screenshots when my Switch gave me an error that I couldn't store any more, despite still having a ton of space left on my SDcard. It was then that I found out that the Switch has a hard 10,000 screenshot limit per MicroSD card regardless of how much space is on it. (Let's...

    Trying to copy my HDD to a Flashdrive, more than twice the free space needed?

    I have a 1TB HDD on my WiiU, and HATE having to use it. It's MASSIVE over-kill because I don't have nearly enough WiiU games for that kind of space (it was the cheaper than 500GB drives at the time), it takes up two USB ports since I need a Y-cable to give it enough power, and I don't like...

    Hacking vWii - Is there a WiiU-specific version of USB Loader GX or something? I am having a lot of trouble.

    Mainly, I am having a ton of trouble trying to get it to load anything from a USB drive. 99% of the time it will hard-lockup on the "Initialize USB Device" message... and by "hard" I mean not even holding down the power button shuts off the system, I am forced to physically unplug it. I...

    Hacking Four quick questions, mostly in relation to the vWii

    1: If I backup my WiiU's nand, does that include the vWii segment as well, or do I have to make a backup dump of that separately? 2: If my vWii gets bricked, is there a way to restore it from backup of either the whole WiiU nand or just the vWii nand? 3: The hacking guide said that installing...

    Hardware Are any of those cheap HDMI adapters any good?

    I have been trying to play some games on my Wii I never got around to using the component cables in 480p and 16:9 mode and it looks BAD, really REALLY bad. And yes, I know it's a 14 year old SD system, but this goes beyond that. I actually have component cables for my Sega Genesis and PS1...

    Hacking Trying to transfer files from PS3 internal drive to USB NTFS drive

    What's the best way to transfer files over 4GB from my PS3's internal HDD to a USB drive? FTP is not an option for me, and I need to extract all the files off of my PS3's HDD, but since some of them are over 4GB, I am not sure what to do. I know there are a few apps that have NTFS support, but...

    Gaming Is it possible to re-order images in the Switch's gallery?

    Yes I know there are tools to re-sign images and so, but that is not what I am trying to do, I am not trying to add my own images to the gallery. I took several screenshots and videos, but I had to trim down some of the videos later and I wasn't aware that this would create a new video at the...

    Hacking Any way to "merge" the contents of two PS3 units together?

    So, I bought a used PS3 slim to replace my aging PS3 Fat that has overheating issues, with the intent to perform a System Transfer. However, that used Slim had a lot of nice games pre-installed on it that I wish to keep. Issue is, I have no idea how to do this while also transferring over all...

    Hardware Decent drives for burning CD-Rs?

    So, modern Blu-Ray burners barely burn CDs at all, and mostly as an afterthought at high speeds. Needless to say, older systems like a SegaCD, Saturn, PS1 etc have a very hard time reading these disks even burned at the slowest (which is still far too fast) setting these newer drives let you...

    Hardware Does the PS3 perform any type of CRC/Checksum verification while creating or restoring a backup?

    I have a slim PS3 with a dying Harddrive. It took several tries to manage to make a backup, but I got one. And it seemed to restore fine... but the issue is I don't know for sure if it worked perfectly, or if it either backed up, or even restored corrupted data. Does anyone know if the PS3...

    Hacking Are there any tools to backup/clone a PS3 HDD using a PC?

    I have a Slim PS3 running Rebug, and it's HDD appear to be shot. Or so I assume as I got it used, it's very slow to do anything and backup operations claim they will take a stupidly long amount of time (over 100 hours to backup under 200GB of data... which usually fails with a generic error...

    Hardware "Supposed" AGS-101 Screen replacements/upgrades for GBA: Can any of them even be trusted?

    So, have a GBA:SP that is an AGS-001, as well as an original GBA that I actually far prefer using, but it's no-lit screen makes it near impossible to do. I recalled those old GBA "backlight" kits from years ago, which are long-gone now (I think they were called Afterburner? I am talking about...

    Gaming Is using a GBA:SP Battery in a Nintendo DS feasible? Are there any good brands?

    My DS isn't holding a charge, and it's battery is bulging, I need to replace it. issue is. NOBODY seems to have replacement NTR-003 batteries anymore, neither official nor 3rd party. I also know that DS Lite and DSi batteries won't work in an original DS. I remember reading that if you cut off...

    Hacking Rebug Debug for HDD Exchange Utility - "An error occurred during the copy operation. (8001000B)"

    I have an old Fat 60GB model PS3 that has been running very hot, and replacing the grease didn't help, so I bought a slim and put Rebug on that to do a system transfer. The Slim actually came with several games that were left installed that I like, so I wanted to keep them. To do that, I was...

    Hacking How do I completely get rid of Webman? Nothing I try works!

    I don't like and prefer Multiman... it and it seems to have made a rather permanent home in my PS3. I installed the "webMAN_MOD_1.47.08_Updater.pkg" and then ran the app, thinking it was similar to Multiman in that it's just it's own app, but it seems to have just installed pieces of itself all...

    Hacking I'm having trouble understanding how to use ReactPSN properly.

    I have games actually purchased on two different PSN accounts on two different PS3s, how do I just backup my licenses or whatever in case I need to format the drive and reinstall them? Since they are on CFW now, I can no longer go on PSN (not without risking banning the account at least).

    Homebrew Using my Nintendo DS CycloDS flashcart to backup a GBA save off of my EZ 3-in-1?

    I wasn't really sure where was the proper place to ask this, so I hope this is the right one. I have an old CycloDS Flashcard for my NintendoDS, and for GBA games (as well as making backing up my DS games and their saves easier) I have an EZ 3-in-1. The CycloDS has built-in support for the...

    Hacking Is it safe to use Sony's built-in reset/reformat options on Rebug?

    Just want to make sure my bad luck was coincidence: Rebug firmware has no issues using the PS3/Sony's official methods to format a HDD or completely wire/reset a console to like-new factory settings, right? My old 60GB model was running hot, so I bought another 60GB model a while ago to do a...

    Hacking Any place to find a good replacement original DS battery anymore?

    I have an original DS, and it's battery barely lasts an hour anymore. I can't seen to find replacements anywhere online, all of them are either for the DSLite, or DSi, which have very different batteries. There are a few really random ones.... mostly shipping from China or Hong Kong.... that...
