    Is it normal once the HDD spins up it makes 1 clunking sound? Its real noticeable if your withing a few feet from your system.

    It doesnt do it when the HDD is hooked to my PC. Just curious why it does it in the PS2 and not a computer? Using a Maxtor 120gb 5400RPM drive.

    wonder why it clunks in the PS2 but not a PC? It sounds kinda ruff.

    Its just the harddrive being shutdown by the ps2 since your using a third party drive, the ps2 doesnt recognise it and shuts it down.

    With your PC, the HD is needed when you startup and doesnt shutdown.
    Your HD will make the same clunck sound when you shut it down in your PC.
    dont worry about it.
