Supposed way to play your backup without mod or slidecard

Starting the game on your PS2

  1. Now for the fun part (and challenging part the first couple of times) This may sound a little complicated at first, but after you do it 3 or 4 times, it’s super easy. First things first, you must remove the front of your game drive on your PS2(not a big deal, it can snap on and off).

  2. Now insert your gameshark 2 cd(make sure the gameshark memory card is in one of the 2 slots, doesn’t matter which one.)

  3. In the gameshark options, choose “start game”, then “without”. Your screen should read “Please insert game disk then press X to continue.”

  4. Now this part can be trickey for beginners, so I will provide pictures

-the main purpose of this starting method is to open up the PS2 and swap the gameshark disk with your burned game without the PS2 knowing you did it. DO NOT press the eject button on the PS2!!!

-with the PS2 cd tray cover removed, you will be able to look in and see a while tab inside the PS2. With a credit card (or something like it) gently slide the white tab all the way over to the right, if you did it correctly, this should allow you to manually pull open the PS2 cd tray.

  1. Next, take the gameshark disk out of the PS2 and put in your burned game.

  2. Gently push the PS2 cd tray fully back into the PS2 (Don’t press the eject button).

  3. Now you need to slide that white tab all the way back to the left (its origional position). To do this you get a strong papper clip(needs to be a strong one) stick it into the PS2 on the right side of the white tab and push the tab back to the left.

  4. If you pushed the tab all the way back to the left and did every thing else right, you are ready to play your game. Just press X on your PS2 controler and watch as your burned game loads. ( It may load slower than an original game, depending on the cd-r you are using, I use Verbatim cd-r’s and have no problems.)

Just out of curiousity, how do you fit an entire ps2 image to a cd-r? They are anywhere from 900 megs to over 4 gigs…did you mean DVD-/+r’s? I have been looking for a description of this for a long time, good work man thanks…
