    Red Face [Answered] Help. Where does a newbie start?

    Sponsored Links
    Hey guys,

    I've been browsing the forums for a few hours and all these emulators and linux stuff is really confusing for me.
    Is there a guide which gives the basic steps on how to start?
    I don't know any of the 'mod' terms... haha
    I came to this site in search for a ps2 loader on ps3 that can play fake iso (downloaded games).
    I don't know if that is real or not though...

    But thanks anyways.. Hope to get a reply

    Thanks

    Ryu

    Welcome.. If you are seeking to play PS2 game images on the PS3, you can do it one of two ways:

    1) From disc, which also requires the Swap Magic Discs and opening the PS3 up (voiding your warranty). If this interests you, see here:

    http://www.ps3news.com/forums/playst...0-a-49057.html

    Videos Here: http://www.ps3news.com/forums/ps3-ha...-a-108880.html

    2) From the PS3 HDD, which requires the Swap Magic Discs but not opening the PS3 up. If this interests you, check for "Open PS2 Loader" and "PS3 USBLD Loader" threads in the PS3 HDD Forum (both apps allow you to do this, but you must have a non-Slim PS3 with (4) USB Ports):

    http://www.ps3news.com/forums/ps3-hdd-news/

    Finally, when all else fails it's a good idea to search the PS3 Guides/Tutorials section if you are new here.

    Yea, unfortunately if you don't have it yet I'd buy it first (see HERE if you need to know where to buy it) as trying to follow all this without actually doing it step-by-step with the materials in hand is indeed "confusing" as you put it and really a waste of time.

    Once you get the Swap Magic discs, some more detailed guides outlined step-by-step are available here though:

    PS3 USBLD Loader Tutorial for 60GB and 20GB with Videos

    How to Play PS2 iSOs on PS3 via USBAdvance (20/60GB NTSC/JAP)

    How to Play PS2 iSOs on PS3 via USBAdvance (for PAL Systems ONLY)

    If you follow those guides and read through their threads while doing so you should have no issues.

    This is awesome... i'm new to this as well (just bought my PS3 about 2 weeks ago) and I'm slowly beginning to see what's underneath the tip of the iceberg.

    I'll give this a go and post progress.

    I had a Swap Magic 3.6 but i lost it. now i want to get 3.8 as it looks and sounds better with the action replay thing.

    does anyone know where i can buy one? a walk in store or a secure reliable online store?

    thanks.

    Just a quick question... I read that the actual PS3 Slim lost its ability to play PS2 titles.

    So everthing linked here does only work with the older versions ? Depending on the used FW ? Or Model ? (slim or thick )

    ty much

    yes. basically if you have one of the old ones with 4 USBs in it, then this is the way to do it. It will not work if you have on of the new models (slim or 2 USBs), but wait and someday it might work
