    How to play PS2 ISO's on PS3 via USBAdvance (aka USBLD)

    YouTube - PS2 backups playing on PS3 via HDD
    (Video by idone)


    What you need:

    • Swap Magic 3.6+/3.8(Purchase here or here) (Must be actual copy, burned copies do NOT work).
    • Launch PS3 (20/60gb) - NTSC/Japanese (Must have emotion engine, only launch PS3's had this).
    • Flash Drive (PSP in USB MODE will also work).

    How to copy PS2 ISO's to a external USB/flash drive



    Method 1

    1. Download the USBAdvance Tutorial File Pack. (Ignore if you downloaded it in last tutorial), and extract the folder USB EXtreme to you desktop.
    2. Plug in your USB HDD (or Flash drive)
    3. Put a PS2 game into your disc drive (if the game is already on your computer you can mount it with Alcohol 120)
    4. Open up the USB EXTREME tool on your compute.
    5. Select your Disc Drive the PS2 game is in, Media type (most are DVD's) and your USB/Flash drive.
    6. Now you can name the game and hit start.
    7. There you have it a properly copied game to your HDD, just pop it in your PS3 and follow step 8 from above.

    Method 2 (Easier Method)


    1. Download USButil located here.
    2. Format your external drive/usb drive to FAT/FAT16/FAT32 format.
    3. In the download pack you downloaded there should be a folder called USBUtil, go inside that and run the EXE.
    4. Go to FILE and click on "OPEN ISO to create game".
    5. Search and click on your PS2 backup, and click CREATE.
    6. The program will now copy the ISO over to your pendrive (it takes some time).

    How does this compare for loading speed? Since the PS3 has USB 2.0 ports, does this make use of the extra transfer rate? USBAdvance was pretty sad in comparison to disc loading on the PS2, let alone HDLoader.

    so ps3 backups to do this method is impossible? because of the ps3 not yet capable of loading ps3 backups. swap magic ps2 disc? not yet ps3 disc. so the needed services is just for ps2. not ps3. Anyways very nice, at last! final fantasy on ps3! weee!
