    you will only get at the most about 8-10 games on the 40 gig hd, if you can, get a bigger one. you will need a network adaptor to plug the hd into the ps2. you will only need the winhip software and all the rest if you want to load games on to the hdd using the pc but its just as handy putting them on using the hdadvance2.0 disk. if you really want to do it through the pc then look through the forum theres step through guides in there. hope it helps

    u can get alot more then 8-10 games on a 40 gig hdd. not only is there such things as smaller games. but u can also remove dummy files from the game images, (even language files) sometimes reducing the game size by half.

    There are plenty of games below 2 gig. but i would recommend a larger drive.

    if you put good games on then you'll only get ten on! most games that have less than 3/4gig are usually shit. theres no point fusking about with the game files either if your not sure what your doing.

    you might need to change the modes ,there are three just highlight the game and push select. I usually try mode 3 first
