I thought hd loader only worked with a max of 137GB hdd?

if the hard drive is bigger than 137 GB it will just read it as a 137 GB drive.

good grief...why would you want to use 300 if you can only use hte first 137? I'm using a 160, but if I had a 120 I'd use that instead...

I dont know if this is going to your email, or posted on the site, but were you able to use more then 137GB of that 300GB hard drive, i know that it only recognizes that much, but can you use more.

how can i tell what HDD that is with just the model number?

There is a patch to open up HDLOADER to use more than 137gb. The new limit is 2 tb or 2000 GB.

is there a link to this patch readily available?

Do you need a network adapter to install a hard drive?

#12 - posted by Bri (68.13.20*.*)2005-01-02 17:03:26
Yeah, network adapter is needed in order to power up the hard drive. And yes, the patch is available. All you need to do is find the elf file, un-pack it, patch it, and then, re-pack it. And afterwares, burn the whole HD Loader cd over again WITH the patched elf file.

Is it true that any Maxtor Hard drive is compatible with the PS2 Ethernet..? And how do you install the Games is it red by the actual Playstation 2 CD/DVD Rom ..?

Can you say the loading is like having a Nintendo 64 * Catrtridge Game* ..?

I have a slimline PS2 and to get a hard drive working you have to forget HDLoader and HDAdvanced and so on, you CAN ONLY plug it up via UBS and a drive in a USB enclosure, Something about Sony gettin rid of the ability to read from a HD.... but there is a kit you can get to make it work, or u can just use a USB enclosure, a HD and UBSExtream as the program. you plug ya HD into your PC and pop the game in ya PC, copy, then when copied plug the HD to ya slimline via its USB and u are away....

Prefer to just have a HD onmy PS2 though, but id need a mod kit, anyone fitted it? is it hard?

Just install a memory card exploit! You will have the most current version of HD Loader and you can also back up memory card save data to a pen drive or the hard drive. If you happen to already have HD Loader or HD Advance you can do this!
