coolram will be able to answer this for you. actually, until racing w/ him last nite, i had not realized there was a 40 gig PS3 or even a 20 gig. He also told me that atleast one or even both of those machines would not read the older ps1 and ps2 games. so you may be out of luck.
perhaps coolram will respond here and confirm what i have said.
it may just be the 20 gig that will not read older games.
i got a question !!!! i have the 60GB unit and i have no issues playing any of my ps2 games on my ps3 . but when i tryed to xfer my saves from NFS Most Wanted my ps3 says that there are no alias.....
im going crazy ! can't figure out why... ive xfer other saves like for my gta or my gt2, 3, 4 anyone knows why that is ?
yeah but i also have the mem reader for the ps3 and pluged in my ps2 mem into it and still does not recognize the saved game on it ! and when i put the same game and the same mem on my ps2 it reads it with no prob !!!!
