ok yesterday the ps store was updated and there is this "ps2 system data" thingy you can download. it says it allows ps2 format software that requires harddisk information to be played on your ps3. what does that mean? sorry im kinda new at this stuff.

it is for games that have to be installed to the HDD... liiike Final Fantasy 11 for PS2. it isn't to important unless you plan on playing that game.

i.e. FFXI
 
certain games ( I don't know of any other than FF11) required the PS2 hard drive accessory. If you are trying to play one of those games, you need to DL PS2 system data... otherwise, ignore it.

no... all the info you need for the socom games will be stored to the internal PS2 mem. card.... i believe FFXI was the only game that used the PS2 HDD... which is probably why that flopped on sony.

I thought about installing my FFXI game onto my PS3 hard drive, but I don't feel like spending another 3 hours doing that. My PS2 works just fine. Too much time to install the PlayOnline viewer, then the game, then the 2 expansions. Plus the updates.

Actually Socom 2 and 3 use the HDD as well.  They both had Map packs.  Socom 2 map packs required the HDD and Socom 3 allowed yo to use the HDD or a flash drive.

But it doesn't work with them, for some reason.

Not that it matters, anymore.. with the servers shutting down. :/
