keherbst -> RE: PS2 HD Loader Info - HDL Dumb! (8/12/2004 1:45:54 PM)

Has anyone tried HD advanced? Besides the option to load backups striaght through the interface, is there any reason to go with HD Advanced? Or HD Loader?




emperor -> RE: PS2 HD Loader Info - HDL Dumb! (8/12/2004 2:38:28 PM)

Not me yet, we are waiting for it to come soon

I've been reading forums everywhere about all this HD stuff. It sounds great, but the only thing really preventing me from getting into it is the money, of course. Right now I have a v4 NTSC PS2 with fliptop/swapmagic set up. I'm looking to buy the hd apparatus piece by piece, so to speak, and I'm wondering if that is really possible.
Looking on ebay, I can get the network adapter pretty cheap. The real qiestion is the harddrive. I see whenever most people mention hd's they almost always say they have a maxtor 120 gb hd. I don't really need or feel like spending the dough on 120gb's, but can i just buy a hard drive made for a pc and set it up for my ps2? How does the hard drive connect to the ps2 and would i need to install drivers somehow or something?

Thanks

You can use some HDD (not WD) mostly Seagate and Maxtor, there is a link for compatible HDD at the first page of this thread so you can check this out...You can get from 40~120GB if you have a Seagate/Maxtor HDD...

There are some mods to fit WD HDD also but i haven't used them




nellie7799 -> RE: PS2 HD Loader Info - HDL Dumb! (8/12/2004 11:02:34 PM)

Ok, so if I buy a maxtor hd and can get my hands on one of the two hd programs and a network adapter for the ps2, how does the hard drive connect to the ps2? does it use just an ide cable that goes into the network adaptor? does it physically go in the ps2, or should iget an enclosure for the hd? i guess basically the question is besides the network adapter, hd, and hd prog, is there anything else i need to buy to have it all work?

sorry im such a newb with the hd stuff. you're a good guy answering all these posts. we all really appreciate it. thanks again




emperor -> RE: PS2 HD Loader Info - HDL Dumb! (8/13/2004 7:54:24 AM)

The HDD drive is attached to the network adapter and its very easy!




nellie7799 -> RE: PS2 HD Loader Info - HDL Dumb! (8/13/2004 5:52:35 PM)

Is it necessary to have the PS2 network adapter disc? Because i can buy it pretty cheap without the disc, but im not sure if i need it.




NismoR34 -> RE: PS2 HD Loader Info - HDL Dumb! (8/14/2004 1:57:12 AM)

HD advanced is jus HD loader copied an change the look of it some other ppl did it i read it on HD loader forum..it does the same thing as HD loader so its nothin special

It's very easy, all you have to do is remove all the screws from the network adapter (the part that faces the PS2 and adjust the power and the IDE cable) u still need a compatible HD though (a compatible one not a one that will fit)

No u do not need the network adapter disk, if you do not want to go online with ur PS2. But without it u will never be able to FTP or go online.
I am almost sure that PS2 will give you one for free if you pay for S&H.
