    Greetings Masters , gents and hackers,

    Greatest Website for all Consoles btw.
    i just got in to the scene of PS3 CFW and just bought it without any idea how it works.

    i just know how to play PS3 games by using Multiman and installing Pkg files.
    i also follow the instruction/tutorial how to play PS2 games thru this website.
    not sure if i install the latest .pkg
    so please bare with me.

    1.i have to ask whenever i play PS2 games on PS3 via PS2 classic holder+react PSN. my DS3 controller disconnects me. i am playing thru PS2 controller but is there a way how the Dualshock Controller connects and sync to my PS3 while playing PS2 games?.

    2. i have to ask is there a way to but PS2.iso game and play it thru External HDD.. as i always play PS2 games on Internal HDD.

    thank you.

    PS2 games always have to be internal. Will never be external.

    If you're using PS2Classics, it shouldn't disconnect. Do you have multiple PS3 Controllers?
    Though at this point, with the newer 4.78 Cobra releases, you can just use ISO and skip the PS2Classics and multiple controllers work fine.

    I remember something about PS2Classics only working with the one controller they were initially set up on.

    Well by default most PS2 games disconnect the PS3 controller since the console reboots, then you should get the "Connect a controller" prompt when the game begins, which then should require you to press the PS button on the DS3 controller. IF it disconnects after that, perhaps something is up with the install.

    Or like I said, eventually you can just move to PS2ISO and try that with a newer 4.78 cobra release.

    It isn't a package. You need something like webMan/WebManMod (don't know about multiman) to mount the PS2ISO games as a disc. Then you just run them from the disc as you would physical media.

    If you want to fix the PS2 sync bug for DS3, follow REBUG's tutorial. This will require you to install REBUG CFW though.
