How much PS2 mem to buy?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I know nothing about PS2's. Nothing. However being the towns residing computer expert (lol - not hard to accomplish in rural Germany - the average age is 99+ and population is 500), a friend has asked me to set up his new (lol) PS2. I have got the mod done to allow 'backup' copies of his games ect but would like to grab a few mem cards on ebay.

Anyone have advise on how much mem I should get, what type(manufacturer) or any other info that might come in handy?

Thanx a bundle.

Memory cards would only be used for save information from the games, you can buy a harddrive and attach it and use it for storing games and media on the PS2.

It really depends how much you're going to use it though. PS2 games are DVDs so think around 4.7gb per game. (Although very few are that big)

DVD's (DL at least) can be over 9GB. I'd say a hard drive would be good.

Well, if it is a new PS2, the thin kind, then you will be stuck with the 8mb or 16mb memory cards. Unless you want to hack an external drive to work with the PS2.

Can the PS2 read DL?

I'm a bit behind for the PS2.

Sure, if a PS2 couldn't read DVD-9 discs, you wouldn't be able to play back movies on it. There are plenty of PS2 games released on DVD-9s, too.
