What is PS2 Roms?
ROM is the short name of Read-Only-Memory that contains games files and its data in a readable form. In this way, PS2 ROMs comes in the form of an ISO image similar to the Windows ISO. The reason behind this is PS2 has the CD-based games so that’s why we get an ISO file.
In this file, a game is stored with all its data so by default we cannot directly play the game through ISO image but we have to first mount it to the Emulator and then it will be able to read its data. When the mounting is done you will see the game will after a while.
These ROMs doesn’t work unless you have a working BIOS file because PCSX2 works with the help of the BIOS file.
