CD based PS2 games on USB

Postby donn16 » Wed Jan 11, 2017 1:45 pm

Is there any way to make them work? I tried converting them to DVD and then patch to work with ESR but USBExtreme says that "Source drive is invalid". I don't know how to make them work.

Game I'm trying to make work is Road Trip Adventure, help me pls

As far as I know, CD based games Only need converting to DVD if you use the ESR Method
as the exploit tricks the PS's protection into thinking you inserted a DVD Movie (Hence VIDEO_TS,AUDIO_TS on ESR PATCHED Images)

USB should play CD images. You may need to convert them from CUE/BIN to ISO but not DVD
Also not all games can be converted to DVD anyway due to protection checks/skewed LBA
Also it's worth checking google for LISTS of games that work with USB drives.
Not all will.

The best compatibility for HDD is to use a PHAT PS2 with a Network Adapter and an internal IDE HDD. I have NEVER used USB for games on PS2, just for music and videos (SMS)

As far as I can remember, I do believe you need to name the games in a set way on USB... I Could be wrong. If other USB users can jump in here, go for it !!

It could be that he game is incompatible or your doing something wrong. Unfortunately, I don't know enough to guide you through this. If you were using a Phat, it's a different answer

Not to worried much about it. I have PS2 Slim and still playing CD based games via USB because of no internal HDD option available.. So i share my technique here for you. Try it and it may work for you as well.

First download Usbutil 2.0 software on your PC and extract that zip file with winrar or 7zip. Using Usbutil 2.0 you can install the games on your USB.

You may have .bin and .cue files for your CD based game and it should be converted to ISO because Usbutil 2.0 never access the .bin and .cue files. For ISO conversion you need to have UltraISO.

Download UltraISO from internet and install on your PC. Using UltraISO you can convert the .bin and .cue files to ISO by either selecting .bin or .cue file for your game. Now your ISO is ready for your CD based game.

Now insert your USB stick in the PC and format it as FAT32 (mandatory).

Now open Usbutil 2.0 and select the source path from your CD based game ISO and select the destination path to your USB stick. More important thing is your have to select your game is a dvd format or CD format. This is CD game right? so select CD format and then click install. Your game will be installed to USB.

Now your game is ready. Check for defragmentation on your USB using defraggler software. If you dont have then download it from internet. Usually installing game after formatting the usb stick is fragment free.. But you make sure of it by checking with defraggler.

After that Reject your Usb stick and insert it to your PS2 and play with OPL or ESDL. The game will work fine. Enjoy

If you have any doubt then feel free to contact me.
