Installing PS2 Games onto USB HDD for USBLD Loader
This is just a short tutorial for installing ps2 ISO or BIN/QUE images onto a usb hdd for using with the USBLD Loader found here.
You should keep all images for games in the C:\ directory (or similar) and the usb drive should also be in FAT32 format.
First, unzip the Attachment 16751 to the C:\ drive
Open the command prompt from Start->Run->cmd
type 'cd\' to get back to c:\
type 'ui_install imagefile usbdrive "nameofgame" mediatype'
- imagefile is the directory for the image of the game to be copied
- usbdrive is the drive letter for the usb hdd
- "nameofgame" is the label that will be associated with the imagefile
- mediatype is the type of media which the image is copied from (i.e. CD or DVD)
so for example, if i wanted to install marvel vs capcom 2 onto the USB hdd, i would type something like this:
ui_install MARVEL_VS_CAPCOM2.bin G "MvC2" CD
This is installed right onto the PS3 or to be played from a HARD DRIVE using Linux?
neither, you need to install the games from your PC onto a usb drive. That usb drive then plugs into ur ps3 to use the games installed.
Nice little program.
I wasn´t aware of this method. Thanks for the info.
do we need swap magic to take advantage of this?
Will the install gui's for USBAdvance or USBExtreme work also?
You can also use USB Util for the PS3 USBLoader. See the link below:
Very Easy to use...
Do you need a PS3 with the capability of playing PS2 titles for this? I assume yes, am I right?
