|Drive works perfect! Formatted very quickly, maybe 1 minute? HD Advance 3.0 recognizes 279GB of the drive, their website said it could only recognize up to 200GB of any larger drive. Takes about 8 minutes to covert a 1GB game. The drive itself is super quiet and has not gotten warm yet after hours of use. You can see a orange light from the drive inside of the PS2 when it is loading. Can transfer games for PS2 from pc but you need dvd decrypter to covert them into .iso format, then an network adapter which is plugged into the hard drive, and an ethernet cable connecting your modem/router to the PS2.
