    So I got a softmoded ps2 and there is a sound bug. It's not gamebreaking, it's just that a lot of the sounds of games I play don't have sounds like footsteps and swings and this kind of stuff, there are only dialogs and music. I use Usbutil 2.0 for you know, to stuff more than 4 GBs of memory onto a flash drive. Is there anything that could fix it? I know don't repair what's not broken, but this just isn't the complete experience.

    USB loading on PS2 is notoriously bad.
    Using a HDD adapter on a Phatty or resorting to SMB loading on Slims is the only way you can achieve almost perfect compatibility.

    Burning backups on disc is (I believe) the only way to have 100% compatibility.
    But SMB loading works without lag and is really quick.
    HDD Loading (what I use) is also pretty much without any problems (tho you'll be tied to an IDE HDD)
    Transfer speeds from a PC to the PS2 (both on ethernet) is about 2-3MB/s max.

    Cool. Need to try that with the hard drive. As of now the ethernet method is unfortunately unavailable to me. It is a pity.

    HDD Loading is the best thing you can have on the PS2.
    Installing games is done with HDL server 0.90 and HDL server helper GUI.

    Don't forget to first start an FTP server in uLaunchELF.
    It'll make the HDD spin up.

    It might be annoying to set up first but once you've done it once, it's piss easy.

    You can just put in a converter I have an old 3.5" IDE in my PS2. But when that drive dies I do have a converter to 2.5" and I also have a 2.5" to SD-card converter (only reason I didn't go with IDE 3.5" -> SD card directly was because none of the ones I found connected in line with the port and I wouldn't be able to fit them inside the PS2). There was also some chinese company making something that looked just like the broadband adapter but contained a 2.5" sata connector instead (and I believe no ethernet port), not sure those are available anymore though.

    Converters and adapters do work.
    But you're still tied to the IDE speeds.

    Of course. Just nice to have it future proof.

    I'd love to see a 3.5 inch SSD inside it.
    Then again, it'll take another 10 years before SSDs become as cheap as HDDs.
