Updating PS2 drivers

  villa fan 17:35 22 Mar 2006

I got my PS2 a long time ago now and while it will obviously play games, dvds from the video shop and what appear to be finalised recordable dvds my ps2 will not recognise any re-writable dvds whether they are finalised or not. Looking at my system details I found these versions:-
Console, SCPH-39003, Browser 1.2, CD player 1.2, PS Driver, 1.10, DVD PLayer 2.13E. I borrowed a PS2 from a friend and everything worked perfectly, his system details are:-
Console, SCPH-50003, Browser 1.4, CD Player 2.00, PS Driver, 1.11, DVD Player 3.00E.

Does anyone know how I can update the drivers to the most current versions. I read that the DVD remote control comes with updated drivers which take up 2.2MB on the memory card although when I borrowed one from a friend it seems to have only taken up 2KB and my drivers are still very outdated. Any help greatly appreciated.

I dont think what you want to do can be done at home,it "may" be possibe to do it if you sent it away to a specialist firm,but most PS2's are shipped with the setup pre installed on the circuit board so you may need a new board if you want a more upto date version.Either that or buy a newer upto date PS2,it may work out the same price,lol.

Take a look at the above links, they both go to the same site, the 1st is to the homepage, the 2nd is to the tech specs. They seem to have some relenvence to what you want.

Hope this helps.
