Can you please send me an email, or post here on how to fit this drive in? I have the same drive and even with modification i could NOT get it in. Please use detail and tell how you got it to fit.

Personaly I was able to get this drive to work by removing the screw near the power connector and sniping off that corner of the shielding, but it was realy a tight fit.

I just got mine up and running tonight. The IDE connector on the network adaptor is connected to the metal plate on the inside of the adaptor with sort of rivet-like tubes bent outward. I took everything apart, snipped out those tubes (so the IDE connector is no longer anchored to the plate) then put everything back together again. I needed to widen the opening for the IDE connector in the top plate, too.

One thing I'd like to add is that a lot of sites recommend that you set the drive to MASTER when installing it in the PS2. For most drives this works because the settings for "Single" and "Master" are the same. However, this is not the case on WD drives - there's a separate setting for SINGLE (jumper removed) and that's the one you need to use if you want it to work!

I tweaked my Enet adapter for this drive and it works flawlessly.
I removed the tin shield, snipped off the corner near the ide connector so it could slide, then i removed the TorX screws from the ide adapter on the enet adapter so i could slide it over. It fits nice, just be careful not to tug it too hard or it will disconnect from the other board inside the enet adapter. I replaced the tin backing and left the ide connecter unscrewed. works like a charm. Which leads me to believe that any WD drive that is EIDE would work with this modification.
