    Hola Hola Hola players!

    I'm new here and REALLY need some help.

    And also I am in the UK if that matters.

    I currently have a flip top but I am getting sick of swapping discs all the time and also half the time they dont load etc.

    So i want something better.

    I originally considered (and still am) getting a mod and i would like advice as to which one is the best for someone not wanting to spend too too much.

    Somebody has suggested that i get a hard drive for my ps2. Would this mean i could then just copy any backup to my drive and not need it again? Would it also mean i wouldn't have to put in discs like swap magic in etc?

    And what exactly is HD Advance - would i need that?

    HELP PLEASE!!

    Have i posted this in the wrong section of the forum?

    Mods, if you have could you move it to dvd backup section or the hardware bootup?

    All i really need to know no i think is what chip to get...

    Hard drives dont sound so great.

    thats at least the posibble solution for you if you dont want to spend for a 50 dollar game and then after playing it, it would not come into use. having a hard drive and having a HDD loader cd would do the trick. with 20 gig, you would have at least 16 games in it... what would a 120 gig do more? think about it?

    With the HDD loader cd though do a lot of games not work though and does it work online?

    Also do you have to put in the hdd loader disc before playing.

    i think it depends on the cd's functionality. if theres a lot of scratches or smudges on it, obviously you cant transfer it to the hard drive. i have no idea if you could transfer that and play it online. i have no time transferring FFXI on the hard drive and accessing through there to play online.
