    Hello.

    A few days ago I installed HEN on my PS3 (I think it's a Slim model, 160 GB), and it worked wonders. I figured I could use it to play PS2 games I own (since the two PS2 I had scratched my disks and I grew afraid of purchasing another PS2 just to scratch another disk).

    I tried following this guide:

    So I downloaded the PS2 Classics GUI pack and tried to encrypt a game (in this case, SMT Devil Summoner Raidou Kuzunoha vs The Souless Army). The encryption not only takes a long time in comparison to the video (this might be because of the size difference in the games), but the encrypted file that results has a bigger extension (BIN.ENC.BIN.ENC.BIN.ENC or something along those lines). I am not sure if such a big extension would work so I didn't try with said encrypted file on my PS3.

    I also tried to convert the encrypted file to a pkg with PS2 Classics GUI, but it says that the file can't be found. Therefore I can't create a pkg of the game.

    I don't know what else to do, and I searched far and wide on the internet. Any ideas?

    Rename to ISO.BIN.ENC.
    Create folder for game in hdd0/ps2iso/
    Copy game to game folder.

    What model is it specifically? A lot of slim models are capable of installing CFW, from which PS2s can be played as ISOs without needing any additional steps to convert it.

    On the back of the console, there will be a sticking reading reading CECH- and then the numbers following that e.g. 20XXX indicate its model number. Models up to certain 25XXX are compatible with CFW (but are hit and miss); anything higher is not e.g. 30XXX or 4XXXX super slim models.

    On any slim that may be compatible, it is always worth running MinVerChk just to be 100% certain that it is compatible. You need a result of 3.56 or below; anything higher (3.60 and above) is NOT compatible with CFW and so HEN would still be your best option in that scenario. Hope this helps.
