    you need a disc called USB Extreme. Look into that first. Game compatibility is not great with USB hard drives though, Like 75% of them should work though.

    not that i have ever seen. The PS2 doesn't have an option to save to a hard drive. Just a memory card.

    It should get recognized if you use, for example, PS2Link... Or any other Loader.
    If you've already ordered a Ext usb case you have nothing to loose when you try it :) (Except if it crashes and everything goes poof... nah, I don't think that will happen :p)
