    hdloader does not work with usb harddrives, you would need usbextreme. Since you have a fat ps2, you could just put a normal hard drive in it (connected to the network adaptor) and use hd loader.

    Yes, ide. And yes, you would need a network adaptor because thats what the hdd connects to. Hdloader is not better than swap magic though. Yes, you can put your old dvd games on the hdd, you just need to know how to do it (takes some swapping). BTW, what brand dvdr discs are you using?
