Oleksandr Lazariev Tech Expert & Writer
Right
Do you use port 1 or 2 to plug it into your PlayStation?

Ok. As per my check, there is not much to set up actually. All you need to do it plug the USB into the port and wait like 1 minute for it to load
What happens when you do that?

Thank you
Actually, you can use the USB and plug it into the PlayStation Mini itself, without this USB cable. You should see port 1 and port 2 on your PlayStation, do you have see them on your device?
Customer Reply
I used the USB cord because I don't think the second port works
Oleksandr Lazariev
Oleksandr Lazariev Tech Expert & Writer
Oh, I see.
Customer Reply
No no no. I think it might be working
I just needed help installing it
Oleksandr Lazariev
Oleksandr Lazariev Tech Expert & Writer
That's good. Did you plug it into port 2? Once it's done, click on the button on your PlayStation located on its left side
Customer Reply
Yes

Please try these steps:
Unplug the USB, wait for 60 seconds, then plug it back in when you plug the USB into the PlayStation, you should see a blue PlayStation Logo on your screen
Then, click on Start button.
You should see a list of the games available on that page.
From that menu, choose the one you need and click on Play button or try X instead if there is no Play
button
Then you should wait till everything is loaded

Okay bear with me. It didn't work the first time

Okay do I turn the PlayStation off then turn it on and then leave the game stick in the USB slot
Before I turn the PlayStation on, does the USB stick stay in the PlayStation?
Oleksandr Lazariev
Oleksandr Lazariev Tech Expert & Writer
Turn the Playstation off, then unplug the USB from the port 2. Wait for 60 seconds
Then turn the Play station back on and plug in the USB to port 2
Customer Reply
Okay, it takes me to a screen that says main menu

Ok. When you go to Applications, what do you see there?
Customer Reply
Okay an applications. I only see 18 games.
At the bottom left screen it says retro Boot 1.1 no core
And in main menu it says load core or load content
Oleksandr Lazariev
Oleksandr Lazariev Tech Expert & Writer
Got you.
Seems like most of the data has not been loaded.
Customer Reply
I can take you to the next page of load core
Oleksandr Lazariev
Oleksandr Lazariev Tech Expert & Writer
Indeed. Usually, when you connect this stick to your PlayStation for the first time, you should see just a PlayStation logo, as I showed you before. To load all the data from a USB, you should click on X button on your console.
Is it possible that you missed some of these steps?
Customer Reply
I guess
I still don't know how it works
Oleksandr Lazariev
Oleksandr Lazariev Tech Expert & Writer
No worries. Try to follow the same steps I have provided before. Disconnect your USB stick, turn of the Play station, allow it some time, then connect everything again. Don't forget to Click on the left button on your Playstation to turn it on
Customer Reply
Ok
Oleksandr Lazariev
Oleksandr Lazariev Tech Expert & Writer
Keep me informed, please
Customer Reply

I think it's been a minute
Oleksandr Lazariev
Oleksandr Lazariev Tech Expert & Writer
No worries, take your time
Customer Reply
When I went into load core it had a lot of files that had video game symbols on it but I couldn't get anything to play
Okay, I'm going to try plugging it in one more time
Oleksandr Lazariev
Oleksandr Lazariev Tech Expert & Writer
Ok, do that
Customer Reply
