How fast are the transfer speeds and installation times of hdd-enabled games?

Hi!. Look

#1 - open the NA, unplug all the little things and the molex`s screw, that makes the molex to run freely, and with that movement i can align it with my HDD witout problem.

#2- Ohhh men,, here is the funny thing. I`m a very impatient person, the very same day i bougth the NA i wanted to have it working.
So i open my NA, unplug all the things.. and for my surprise there it has.. that freaking strange screw. I tested all my tools, and no one worked. So,,, i was fucking mad, so i grab an electric hand drill and ÑÑAAAAAANNANANNANNNNMMMM drill out that nasty screw.. Bah, in fact don't drill the screw but the rivet that this under
that allows the molex to run freely.

But don´t be a beast like me. in a big house of electronics they should surely have a screwdriver of that type :) Take you NA as a sample and the will help you with your needs :P

NOTE: PLEASE remember to set your Hard Drive to CABLE SELECT, in another way it doesn't work

I was looking at the hdd website and it is for a modchip. Do i need a modchip to use a hard drive or is there software that i can get that will allow me to format the hard drive?

its a sad thing, those with money buy the hardware and cant use it; but the people who really know how to use it, cant afford the hardware in the first place. look up MCExploit, memory card exploit, or independence exploit for non-ps2 ruining options. if u really wanna melt ur ps2 with a soldering iron be my guest. no offense, but i dont think we should let deathrOw get his hands on a soldering iron

I've updated the PS2 Installation page with a fairly basic guide how to modify an european Ethernet Adapter.
