Hi! I have the playstation network adapter. I bought it used like 6 months ago from huuto.net(finnish ebay) and it has worked fine, although I didn't get the network configuration disc because the seller had got it with the linux kit, but didn't need it any longer. But my question isn't about it, it's about the connectors on the backside of the network adapter. Someone has maybe asked this before, but it's hard to find good keywords for this, I tried in google and this forum search. Yes, to the point. There are standard IDE connectors on the backside of the network adapter. Just because I was curious, I put a formatted[NTFS] Fujitsu(?) 6GB hard drive in there and hoped to get some kind of error message or anything. But the playstation 2 didn't act anyhow different from what it usually does. This wasn't a big surprise, and I was quite happy with neither my playstation 2 nor harddrive broken. Then after more research I found some info in DMS3.com's forums. http://www.dms3.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1886 . But this would need a DMS3 chip, but I am not going to install one because it's expensive and it's hard and i have a version 3 pal ps2 so it's even harder. I'll get a Swap Magic (with slidecard) in 1-2 weeks and I was wondering if I could use it to have a homebrew program to access the harddrive(or maybe a backup of playstation 2 linux kit[or if i could find an iso of linux for playstation on the net, linux is freeware, isn't it?].) Do you think this would work? how should the harddrive be formatted(NTFS, FAT32, other?) Or is this already covered at some site I have missed? Thank you!
