OK. I got two of the 3 items I need now. I have the 120GB Maxtor and PS2 Network Adapter. Emperor, regarding winhiip, is it possible to use that to copy the games and play it without HDLoader or HDAdvance? By the looks of things, it seems like I will have to use one of the 2 programs to have the load screen for my PS2.
So is there a real difference between HDAdvance and HDLoader? I know it's copy job (HDAdvance), but why have one CD and one DVD? Will the HDLoader CD be enough (no DVD?)? I want to get HDLoader, but didn't know if I also might need the pressed DVD that HDAdvance has. Is this the legit site to get it from (www.hdloader.org and NOT hdloader.net - consolesource)? I want the original cd and not a copy which hdloader.net seems to be.
This one should be one of the last questions for now:
I'm getting mixed messages here. I read (originally) that I need to put the HDD to my PC and run the HDLoader program. But I read on the site that I could insert the CD into my PS2 and then swap it with the game. It should then be able to copy it directly to my HDD in the PS2 System without installing it as a slave in my Desktop PC. Is this true?
