    replace ipod with hdd

    I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE DONE!!! ALL SONG WILL BE ERASED OFF YOUR IPOD

    What You need

    Usb extreme found here

    Usb Advance found here

    Swap Magic just google it

    And An ipod with at least 5 gb for dvd games and 800 mb for cd games

    First You want to download Usb Extreme and open the folder and and drag the file to your desktop and set it aside.

    Then you want to Download Usb advance and burn the cue file with Nero or Alcohol 120% onto a CD.

    FOR MP3 PLAYERS OR HARD DRIVES Grab your Mp3 player or disk drive and connect it to your computer. Click on My Computer and right click on the drive off your device, and click format and click the box quick format.

    FOR IPODS open Itunes or Ipod updater which ever one you use and Click restore.

    Then open USBExtreme and go to the tab that says Disk Format and click format then select your drive and click OK. Whe ndone you can close it

    When that is completed put the cd you burned in your pc's drive and open it from my computer.

    Right click on your mp3 player or ipod or hard drives, Icon and click open. Right click anywhere in that drive and make a new folder And name it "SWAPMAGIC" in all capitols without the quotes.

    Drag all your files from your burned CD to that folder, and rename the .ELF file To SWAPMAGIC.ELF.

    Installing games onto your device

    Open USBExtreme and click on the tab games installer and put your games in the drive and pick your drive its in media type (blue bottom cd, silver cd Dvd) and give it a name and install. The installation is lengthy so give it some time.

    After its installed Put swap magic in your ps2 and plug your drive in and then turn it on and it will take to the Usb advance screen the pick your game and play
