Recently I got a new playstation (v9) and I inserted my gameshark2 cd with memory card and it gave me an error message saying that its not compatible with this version playstation (before I was using ps2-v2). Since I now have Datel's MAX DRIVE, I was going to purchase the Action Replay Max however, I read reviews that its terrible and corrupts data etc. I need cheats to play games like Nanobreaker and Contra:Shattered Soldier where I keep dying. I would prefer to use something compatible with my max drive however I would be willing to buy a new gameshark software, action replay max or codebreakers or anything else. Can anybody recommend anything for me? Also, how will I be able to tell when purchasing online if the software is compatible with my v9 ps2? I've never actually purchased a network adapter for my ps2, however if the Datel interface seems a lot more user friendly than the game shark. Is it difficult to download cheats and saves online, and is it worth my time to spend $50 on a network adapter, which I probably can't even setup correctly? Thanks for any and all help.
