Open PS2 Loader (OPL – HD/USB Loader)

Open PS2 Loader (OPL – HD/USB Loader) – Draft

Introduction – What is OPL?

Open PS2 Loader (OPL) allows you to load PS2 images from a storage device:

  • USB device via internal port
  • Harddisk via expansion slot
  • Samba share via network interface of the expansion pack



To run Open PS2 Loader you need the following items:

  • Fat Playstation 2
  • Network Adapter
  • Harddisk HDD or SSD, depending on your adapter
  • Free McBoot (to add further link)
  • Software to add
  • PS2 Game files (Isos)

A fat Playstation 2 is required to work with Free McBoot, it also supports the expansion where you can install your harddisk, which I recommend. Although haven’t tried the network method via Samba yet, as I got a kiosk display stand to play my PS2 with no network connection close to it.

The original PS2 expansion bay supports normal HDD, but you can also get no-name expansion bay’s support SSD (but no network support).
