Need input on CF to IDE adapter hack

I know that there are adapters out there that allow you to use a CF card in place of an IDE harddrive. What I'm thinking about is making an adapter that allows you to go the opposite direction. According to the info that I found on pinouts.ru, the CF to IDE adapter is a simple translation of the pin...

The best way that I can tell to connect a hard drive to a PSP without having to know the hardware and firmware forwards, backwards, and upside down is like this. Neo Flash makes a device that allows you to connect a compact flash card through the memory stick slot. Compact flash and IDE are fully co...

Alright, here's my take on this.....it's complete and total crap! I can totally understand not releasing something if you're trying to perfect it first, but the only proof he's provided is two videos, which we all know can easily be faked. I've read through almost all of PVP's posts regarding how he...

Even doing that it still doesn't make a lot of sense. I'm glad you got your answer, though.

I think that you're referring to downgrading when you say "software pandora". If that's the case, you can downgrade anything with OFW 3.50 or less. Depending on which firmware you have will make a difference on how you launch the downgrader, though. Check out qj.net. They've got all the info anyone ...

you sure? that site says "free download" either way even if it was not there must be "free" ways to get it. hmmm....I thought you had to pay for it. If it's free, that's even better. The memor32 card exploits a hole in MagicGate. It looks pretty nice but about 2 years late, honestly! most definitel...

Turbo Tax is right. There's a group of hackers that have written a new firmware for the memor32 card that makes it act just like a mod chip. The last time I heard about it, they were saying that the next version of the firmware was going to have support for usb devices. The bad thing is that their f...

As for the 1.50 addon problem, you have to have the 1.50 update eboot. If you don't have it, it will tell you that you're missing it. Your problem with updating to the new M33 firmware sounds like kernel version problem. Go into recovery and make sure that you have your game folder kernel set to 3.7...

The concept drawing is pretty cool looking. It'll be neat to see whether or not it winds up looking like that.

If mspformat.exe is saying that the pseudo format is unnecessary, then the memory stick is ready to have the file installed. However, you don't just copy it to the memory stick and hope that it winds up in the right place. That's what msinst.exe is for. It takes the msipl.bin file and writes it to t...

I run Vista on my computer at work, and I don't particularly like it either. It will eventually be a (somewhat) good OS, but on anything less than a 3.0 gig Core 2 Duo with about 4 gigs of RAM, it blows.

Yeah, msipl.bin is a file that's created on a homebrew compatible PSP that is then written to a certain sector of a memory stick (using msinst.exe) that's been formatted with mspformat.exe. msinst.exe and mspformat.exe are ran from a PC with the PSP connected via USB. The msipl.bin file cannot be cr...

Without a homebrew compatible PSP, the memory stick cannot be easily made since you have to have one to create the msipl.bin file.

Could be a dirty lens. I've fixed several PS2's that wouldn't read any discs just by cleaning the lens. If it's a Slim-line PS2 then it's easy. If it's a fat PS2, then you've got to open it up. A little rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip will do wonders.
