    i m looking to use a program that will use a external hdd to load games off, so i dont have to use a modchip of flip top cover that will void the warranty (breaking warranty seal)

    i have read that to use a hdd with swap magic 3.6, u need to format hdd w/usbextreme, get usbadvance burn it , copy files to swapmagic folder on hdd and rename elf file.

    thus once swap magic boots up, usbadvance will then boot up, allowing u to play games off usb hdd.

    doesnt swap magic support usb hdd's so u dont have to use usbadvance (which is barely compatible with any games)

    i really would like to find a porgram to use games off a hdd, but i can see myself having to get a flip top case.

    btw i have v15 PStwo

    usbadvance is the only way I know of. You either need to buy it, or go the swap magic route to boot it.

    hm.. if ur gunna need it to use usb hdd, y not just buy the bloddy thing hey lol.

    just a side note... does installing a flip top cover void the warranty ? cos i have looked at how to open the slim pstwo and install the fliptop cover, but i have no external warranty seal that i can see.

    this is a tut on how to change to fliptop covers
    i can only find flip top covers for v12, do they also work for v15 aswell ?

    As far as I know, installing the fliptop does void your warranty.
