    u can use any hdd but not recommanding western digital cause they are too big in size. But western digital can be customize. Just plug the hdd in and hdloader/advance. That's all. Hdloader and HDadvance is the same, they are both good.

    I'm confused here is what that link says


    What is HD Loader?
    -HD Loader is a PS2 Program that allows the user to store their games on their hard drive to play the games from the hard drive.



    Can I use HD Loader to store my saved games on the HDD?
    -No, no saved games can be stored in HDD.






    So which one is it

    it means you cant use it instead of a memory card. you can save whole games such as GTA III to the hard drive so you dont have to use the disc any more but you cant use it instead of a MC.

    You can copy your memory card files to your hard drive also. You need to get the ps2os for this though. Do a search and I'm sure you will find it. You can only copy them on the hard drive and back. you can not play the saved game from the hd. you would have to copy the save back on the mc to play the game. But I love having the extra storage so I don't have to get another MC.
