    what you need to do is to make an image of the DVD9 disk and then find some tools to convert it to a DVD5 disk image. try using google to search for them or you can goto http://www.ps2nfo.com/ where they have a guide on how to do this. As i am typing this I am unable to get to that site.

    well what i do is this, I have a DVD-ROM and DVD-burner in my computer so when i want to use the playstation HDD for my computer i take the cover off and swamp the power and IDE cable with my DVD-ROM and windows will detect it at first and ask you to restart and only does this the first time you put the HDD in the computer. Now if you want to install the game on the HDD you will need a program like HDL_dumb or HD handiness that are also found on the PS2info.com (formally ps2ownz). the HDD will not show up in My computer cause windows does not reconize thr filsystem on the PS2 HDD
