Hard drive profile

Date added: 2006-05-15 Posted by: gsr4jimmi
Brand: Seagate Firmware: N/A
Model number: ST3500841A - RK Manufacture date: 2006
Model name / serie: N/A Buffersize: 8 MB
Drive size: 500 GB RPM: 7200
PS2 version: v9 Progam(s): HD Loader v0.7C (also works with SOTC)
Adaptor model: Ethernet and Modem

Additional notes: Report this entry - Edit
Theoretically the HDL v0.7C can recognize up to 1TG (1000GB) --- I\'m halfway there and firmly believes that 1TG is compatible once drives that size are widely available and for cheap. It picks up as 465GB HDD SIZE and 463 GB HDD free, and took only 45 seconds to format with the drive being clean and brand new.

Bottom Line: the 500GB works, pretty much any brand will do (even WD, but modification to Network adapter is needed, so why bother with WD!)

I have this HDD and when i tried to use it with the HDLoader it only recognizes about 135 GB, anyway to make it unlock the rest of the drive?

Do you know if this will work with HD ADVANCE 3.0?

This hard drive works for me. Recognizes 465 GB IIRC. Remember to enable 48-bit.

First setting the Bios and see if that drive support 48bit... Enable it... then format the drive using WinHiip 1.7.6 48-Bit LBA mode...

i used a 320 GB and it's working like a ARCADE MACHINE, u don't NEED to use Winhipp 1.7 , the BEST way is use this: HDD MEGAPACK BR 9 it's very GOOD!!! A lot of programas and emulators can work directly from HD... i'm using and can say there's no other =)

are in engine cucstenes. (besides FF13 where are CGI and engine videos both)Easily in most of those games they could be real time and not as prerendered videos.MGS4 had in those 30GB less than 5GB of game: Metal Gear Solid 4 USA PS3-APATHY [Audio Rip] 4,68Gb 25GB is uncompressed audio. All cinematics are real time.@BloodiosAh yes sorry, bink was on X360 version of FF13. Retarded codec and Square for using it also leaving 2GB of free space on 360?! on PS3 are HUGE. 32GB of videos. ~25Mbit/s IIRC that's more than many BR moviesIn Killzone 3 the cucstenes are for both 2D and 3D version. If 2D are mostly unnessesary they easily could be in game rendered, those 20GB of 3D ones are smart choice 3D in Killzone unlike 2D doesn't keep 30fps/s and when watching cucstenes having prerendered stable 30fps is nice.VN:F [1.9.17_1161](from 0 votes)

I've thrown<a href=""> srectahcd</a> CDs DVDs in this thing that I thought were finished. Amazingly it has read everything I have put in it so far. I find it funny that people will spend a ton on some components, and not fork out an extra $10 for a top of the line drive. This drive deserves an easy 5 stars.

</a>They aren't. Even 3 layers at 75GB BRdiscs are NOT cmltapiboe with PS3 disc drive.1TB disc are Holographics ones or have tens of layers requiring very very strong laser. === -You may extend size' of disk somewhat by putting less recovery data (normally 10-20%) if you don't care that any scratch will make disc with unreadible data audio CD disc do so.Not possible in case of data discs.That could make a dual layer DVD with help of overburning able to have ~10GB but also made it extremaly vulnerable to dirt and scratches.So going by that this screen?
