Hello Afterdawn Members. I have a question. It has probably been answered a hundred times, but here goes: I have a ps2 with a eth/mod network adapter, and a western digital hard drive that required a little mod to get it connected. It is on the compat. list so I do not think this is the issue. Anyway I am connected through a hub to my home network but the network isnt seeing the playstation. I was just wanting to makesure all is well before buying hdloader/advance wich ever is the better of the two. Is there anyway to get the computer to recognise the hd on the playstation so i can format it. It was a harddrive out of one of my spare pcs. I was also wondering what can you do with a hd on the ps2 other than load games can you view the contents such as pics music etc. And is there a free version of hdloader i could download to see if I would want to purchase the full version. Thanks In advance.
