    When you have a PS2 compatible hard drive do you just put in hd loader or hd advance and then that program will recognize the hard drive and then you can format it and then rip games to it or is there something else you have to do first? Any help is appreciated. Thanx

    yes, thats all you need. Any time you want to play or install games, you have to load the hd loader disc though.

    it doesn't use one of those formats. You have to have hd loader or hd advance format it in your ps2, then take it out and put it in your pc.

    As far as Technically it will, Save time and Use WinHIIP to format it first, As far as "will it fit" I guess you could do one thing, Try :p.

    Peace & Greetz all
