    Hi!

    I now have the Hdloader original boot disc,but considering upgrade to HDadvance cause HDadvance support up to 200gig of harddrive..

    Can I just use HDadvance instead of Hdloader without reinnstall the games or format the drive?Does it work?
    do I get more space then?
    I mean I got 200gig harddrive now,but HDloader only recognice 127gig,so I think maybe HDadvance will work and recognice up to 200 gig?

    Yes.... And it's free... Unless you really want to pay for a pressed disc...

    Yes... HDL and HDA are the same... HDA 2.0 is just a patched version of HDA/HDL with a different splash and main screen...

    Okey,but here`s one thing..I innstall my games with winhiip..
    At My HDloader it says that i have
    1 gig (of 127gig recognized) free..ok..
    When I tried to innstall a game at 1gig with winhiip it says that i not have enough space....how do winhiip know if I use HDloader?do winhiip automaticly set 127 gig?
    If I use HDadvance at my ps2..I still think winhiip will give me that message...or not?

    I really dont understand that..
    I doesnt make a difference if I get more space with HDadvance at PS2 if I cant innstall more games with winhiip...U see my problems?

    Ok you lost me...

    What version of Winhiip are you using?
    And when you are trying to load a game in Winhiip are you going into program options and ticking 48-bit LBA (Special HDL) ?

    There is a patched version (48-bit) HDA and HDL floating around the internet.

    There is also a patch if you want to patch it yourself.

    HDL_AIO_2 (HDL All-in-One V2) has everything you need...
