I have a V9 PS2 with a Magic V modchip. I had been running a CD-R version of HDLoader, which was no problem, but the modchip died on me recently. I don't feel like installing a new mod chip, so I'm thinking about just buying a legit copy of HD Advance. I know I can't load backups to the PS2 straight without a mod or swap routine, but can I load backups to PS2 HDD through the PC,using a program like WinHiip, and play the games without any kind of swap. Basically I want to connect the HDD to the PC, load backups, reconnect to the PS2, put the HDAdvance disc in and play the games. Is it possible?
