    I would like to use the PS2's USB ports to play game backups off of my flash drive. Can anyone help me? I need to know any and all ways you guys can tell me about how to do it. Also, are there any completely free ways? I have a PS2 SCPH 90001 (Date Code 8C) and 2 blank DVD-R disks I can use. I also have a 32MB memory card available to me. Thanks. Free ways are appreciated, but I will try anything.

    Easiest way is to find someone you can trust to install FCMB to a memory card for you. You can also do this yourself but it's a little tricky sometimes and requires you to own a game that can be used for the exploit.

    Info to do it yourself can be found here: http://freemcboot.info/

    After that, you just need OPL (Open PS2 Loader) and boom, USB loading. When I am not loading games from a network, I have a partition of my hard drive dedicated to PS2 backups.

    An 8c PS2 SCPH 9xxxxx isn't FMCB compatible. You'll need to chip it.

    Ive had a look at a few compatibility lists for this open loader but they seem a bit light on information. Anyone have this who can shed any light on whether compatibility is high? Ive got a fat ps2 sat doing nothing thats fully working and wouldnt mind getting hold of a few games and running them from hard drive

    yup he is 100% right only thing to do is install a modchip as your unit is too new. Be cheaper to buy a used ps2 then a modchip probley
