Hi All I have got a Fat PS2 with Network adapter & HDD from a guy and he said it was all working previously to run his backups from the hdd. He has no software to use the hdd any more , so I'm on the hunt for the best / most compatible to backup my games to save / extend the laser life.. Ideally , I dont want to use the dvd drive unless its to backup a new game etc. IF i read posts correctly, its possible to run some software directly from a MC ?? Can anyone give feedback on what I should be doing etc so I can get this setup correctly while i have a day or 2 away from work. Ask questions & I will try to answer asap.. thanks EDIT: forgot to mention, this console is supposed to be chipped.. It starts to play a backup disk , so I assume its working. Can i confirm this is chipped / the type of chip without opening the case up ??
