This guide aims to cover everything to get your PS2 game backups up and running using Open PS2 Loader. Starting from backing up your disc based PS2 games, to setting up the USB drive, converting games to ISO, splitting games larger than 4 GB, downloading cover art, and finally setting up specific modes for problematic games on OPL. Although this tutorial is much longer than I originally anticipated, I wanted to cover everything I know about playing from USB on OPL and condense it into one video.

This video assumes you already have a modified PS2 console with access to OPL through a method such as FreeMCBoot, FreeHDBoot, FreeDVDBoot, Fortuna, etc.
