Question i'm new, can u tell me how to use this BOOT DISC

sponsored links

Hi, i recently downloaded a BOOT DISC iso for PS2/PSONE. I burned it onto a CD using CDRWIN and popped it in my PSONE to see if it works. When i put it in a screen said Please insert a Playstation format disc. Is that how it works?? I dont have any copied or backup psx games so i didnt have anything to put in it. instead i put in a regular playstation game and nothing happened.

I then popped the boot disc into my PS2 and a nifty screen with red 3d squares was rotating and the screen said insert playstation 2 or playstation format disc. i never saw that screen before ever.

My question is, is the boot disc working and does anyone else use it? or are the screens that are showing up just regular screens that show up even if you dont use/put in a boot disc?

thanks a lot for your help

The psx bootdisc can only be bought.Ps2 bootdisc doesn't exist,with the exception of maybe the gameshark,which is not really a bootdisc,but it works as such.What you downloaded is probably a butterfly,once downloaded nothing happens,if you download it again you'll have a virus on your hands.Very popular with bootdiscs.

haha, the screen you're seeing is the standard screen you get when a disc can't be read by the ps1/ps2, this means it is a copy or another format.
