    No, it must be an original game to work, otherwise, DNAS will fail and you will neither be able format the HDD or boot the Final Fantasy XI game disc.

    If they are originals, then yes but I believe you still have to boot the PS2 with the original disc in order to play it.

    you don't need the disc to play. It installs on to the hard drive, but you cant have to copies of the same game online at the same time. Plus when u buy a PS2 hard drive it comes with FFXI so why borrow someone elses?

    Well he had returned his hard drive a while back because he thought it was broke but it was realy is ps2 so he is still using the serial key for that one and he has the serial key for the one he exchanged the old one for. And the price of the combo is 100 but i can get just the hard drive new for 75 shiped.
