Without getting too technical, the answer is yes. The PS2 has an actual PS1 CPU to run original PS1 games. Something about the way things are hooked up, that you can't access both that and the hard drive at the same time.

But now that you have an XBox, there is a PSX emulator for it that will run ISOs off the hard drive. That's the next thing I'm going to try this week.

You may not need to. Check tutorial here. I haven't tried that one yet (went out and bought an AR), but I have done the controller-to-PC, and it works great. If you still want AR, PM me.

Yes. Yes it does. Sixtoe will also agree with us =)


RELAX and just have fun.
Remember, it's all about the games.
