    I'm curious about what the PS2 Hard Drive does exactly. All I know about it is that it allows me to watch the actual highlights of my ESPN games (instead of still images that suck), and that there's no way to get it without getting FFXI. If anyone has one and knows exactly what it does, I'd like to know.

    With a HD and App like HDloader, you can install games onto the HD and boot them directly off of it, eliminating the need off booting off a disk.

    I guess my real question is, can I save games onto it like the Xbox hard drive?

    You use the HDloader utility to do the install (games onto HD)

    Yes it is like the Xbox, except you need the HDLoader utility to boot the game.

    You guys should really invest a little time researching this topic, its really valuable to get into.

    Thanks for the advice, I will look into that, but how is it legal. Couldn't people just rip a rented game onto a hard drive and take the disk back no longer needing it. Seems wierd to me.
