Need help with Softmod of PS2

by Sano Sun Jan 04, 2015 6:30 am

So, I got the Action Replay and it doesn't have the media player function for some reason.

First I would like to ask if the Action Replay can be updated to have that media player function. If not, can someone point me in the direction of an AR that has the media player.

Second, I tried simply doing a disc swap for the hell of it; and of course it didn't work.

I should mention that its a slim model PS2. That is probably the problem.

I am at a loss... any input on this would help greatly!

I was successful using the Action Replay MAX

[It's the AR that also lets you Play Sega Mega Drive Roms]

Quick Note: AR does not work well with all USB Thumb Drives. Since I lost my AR original I had to try 3 different Thumb Drives before I could get the Media Player to recognize the softmod file. [I was successful with a Kingston Drive]

Good Luck!

At this point I really think the cheapest/easiest way to get your PS2 softmodded is to either find someone locally who can do a FMCB install for you or just mail a memory card to someone who can. I mean, go go gadget drive to do it yourself, but you end up spending more on the AR than you would on postage and a couple padded envelopes :D

There are plenty of people, myself included, who will do the install for free if you cover shipping the memory card both ways.
