Hey i agree with you completly on the fact that the things dont line up but i changed the online part so it would and when it powers up you can here it spinning but i havent recived the HDLOADER YET but it will turn on the hdd for sure.

I was able to install this drive and it is to working. If you notice the connectors on the PS2 network adapter are not stationary, they wiggle side to side a little. I just removed a little bit of the metal around the connectors which gave enough room for the IDE and Molex connector to spread out a little. This allowed me to plug in the hard drive. It formated within a few minutes and I have already loaded 8 of my games on it with no problems. Excellent!

I was having a hard time trying to line up the connectors. If anyone could give me some tips or advice on how to fix the problem in detail that would help me alot.

I ended up removing the metal cover that holds the ide and molex connectors in place. It ended up connecting fine after that. I got my first 2 games installed today actually

I just ordered this same Western Digital HD from Newegg. I see a few had problems and a few are good to go. for those who got it to work is there anything else you had to do other than Mod the connector on the Network adapter that i shoul know about?

It works fine you file down the inside of the molex a little bit, then speard them as far as they will go. Its extreemely tight but if you jam it on it seems to work... my HDLoader will be here in 5 days so there is no real way for me to check if it works for sure, but i can hear it spinning and botting up.

I managed to file down aroundthe power socket to make it fit, I\'ve installed 2 games and both of them just display a black screen when I try to play them

YES it WORK FINE with network adaptor !
You must push to the right POWER(molex connection) on the network adapto(cut the little part of metal at the right of the network adaptor)
And i'ts a miracle, HD fit ok !
Dont' worry network adaptor is not damaged.
Just take your time when you do it. ;)

I just bought a ps2 slim and want to connect an external hard drive to boot games using hdloader. However im' kind of a newb at the whole thing and was wondering if there is a sight or forum that explains this process in detail for beginners.

So, has anyone actually confirmed if this hdd is working with the ps2, i know people have confirmed that it will fit if the plate is filed down, but does it work afterwords?
