Installing PS2 games onto HDD for OPL

Postby Doomer022 » Wed Apr 25, 2018 5:40 am

So now ill try to put my PS2 games on a HDD and run them with OPL with FMCB v1.953

So here is the thing:
I have my older discs and the game files are on them. I want to port the games from the disc to the HDD ill be using so when i load my game from it, ill be able to load my old savegames.
And of course i need help on how to install these games too!

Use this to make an iso image of your game disc http://www.theisozone.com/downloads/pc/other/imgburn-v258/

Use this to put games on internal hdd http://www.theisozone.com/downloads/playstation/tools/winhiip-176/
I'n not sure about external drive if that is what you are using as i have never used an external drive.

As far as game saves use your memory card to load old saves just like normal, new saves can go on memory card or some games support virtual memory card but you will have to investigate for each game and enable in opl if you want to use virtual.

Hope that helps.

Edit:
I found this you tube video of installing on usb hard drive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DH6eIFHrsQI.

Yes create image file will make an iso image. Winhip is for internal hdd like i said i am not sure about external as i did not watch the video, i just found it. If you are using internal hdd be sure to run winhip as administrator or it will not see your ps2 drive.

I heard stuff about WinHIIP that if i have an external HDD i will have to delete the volumes from the HDD to be able to format it and to install games on it. But will i be able to install my volumes back if i want to?

Now it says "The selected hard drive does not have a valid PS2 Master Boot Record" Help?

While formating it says: "There has been a problem writting to the destination hard disc drive" More Help?

Put the hdd in your ps2... Run hdloader it will format and put a valid PS2 Master Boot Record on the drive..once done..unhook hdd from ps2 and hook it up to your pc..run winhip with admin rights..now you should be able to put on all the games you want

I feel like some people would rather "socially network" and potentially get the wrong answer slowly, rather than just use google and get the right answer immediately.

If you have any backups that you'll be copying to the HDD make sure you remove the ESR patches before copying them over.
