    HD Loader/Advance as of yet will not work with USB hard drives.

    No it doesn't. It checks the HDD interface for the HDD. It is not USB aware.

    It's been discussed that something might come out but still no word as far as I know. It's clear though that Sony will not be support HDD use on the PSTwo.

    HD Loader/Advance uses a proprietary partitioning format that is not PC compatible. There utilities out there such as HDL Dumb and WinHIIP that allow you to connect a HD Loader/Advance formatted hard drive to the PC and access it but Windows or any other OS for that part will not natively recognize the partitioning format.
