PS3 Slim Install Times Shorter Than PS3 Fat's

I mean, certain PS2 games play on the PS3 (according to the website anyway) because they did something to the software.

I think you're misunderstanding your source, or your source is lying. Certain PS3s have full BC (full PS2 hardware), certain PS3s have partial BC (half software and half hardware), and certain PS3s (like mine), have no BC at all (no software, no hardware for BC).

I'm just going by Sony's website. You pick which model PS3 you have and type in the name of the game, and it tells you if it works or not, and what software update had what issues. I don't know of every model PS3, and the site has only 2 options: the 80GB, and the 20GB/60GB. I brought it up because I had no idea what model he had. So I guess if you don't have either of those models, then you're screwed.

as someone who has a BC PS3 you don't want it, especially if you have a HDTV.
See since the majority of PS2 games were made to fit SDTV's the PS3 won't fit it to your screen

Change the settings on your TV.

I did and:
A.) That can cause burn in faster.
B.) Didn't really help there were sill some black bars.

If your TV is relatively recent there should be an option to "display all pixels" (or something similar), which resizes the image to fit the whole screen. And PS2 games don't cause burn-in, don't be ridiculous.

I don't think you understand the concept of Burn in. If a suspended image is left on a screen for a good 2 hours straight it will cause the pixels to start burning out. With my TV I get black bars on the side that will (according to le manuel) cause burn in. Some PS2 games if played on a PS3 will NOT fill in the entire screen.
Don't be ridiculous.

What you're describing is the opposite of burn-in (pixels not being used so they don't degrade as fast), and would only be noticeable if you played for thousands upon thousands of hours with black bars at the side of the screen and didn't use the TV for anything else.

Why do people defend installs?

PC installs are irritating as hell. Especially if they involve 'restart windows' as a step.

But, it's all just a trade-off for larger games.

PC games started needing installs when the size of programs exceeded the capacity of the medium.

Floppy disk based games had installs when games got beyond a single floppy.
CD based games often didn't have installers until much later.
Wing commander 3 came on 4 CD's, and didn't require serious installation. It had it as an option, but even that amounted to installing 50 Megabytes of the most frequently used data, out of about 2 gigabytes total.

2 years later, suddenly the majority of CD based games have installers.
Actually, half of the problem is windows, but the other, is that companies were starting to try and squash 800 megabytes of game data onto a 650 megabyte CD.

Whatever the reason is that it's nessesary on a PS3 to begin with, it's suggestive of strained storage technology.

In other words, Blu-ray isn't as impressive in practice as it sounds on paper.

This would be something that would attract me towards the PS3 Slim, if it weren't for a feature being cut out of the Slim which I would rather have than faster installs: The ability to install a third-party operating system onto it. Yes, yes, I know: The Linux hackers won't be long in figuring out how to shoehorn Linux back onto the PS3 Slim, but frankly, I don't have the time to spend interminably trying to figure out how to break past the already-installed OS to get the functionality of Linux on the console.

I want to burn a PS2 game so i can play it in my PS3
I am gonna burn it using TOAST Titanium but does someone know if this should work if the game has copy protection or something?
Does someone know a way to do this?
