    hey how's it going everyone..

    well the problem was that a while ago i bought this Ultimate Collection Disc that came w/ slim kit V12 & slide card. so i got it gave it a shot and when i got everything correct my PS2 would not read any backup games and eventually stop spinning and working. so i asked around the site and some people had the same problem. I ended up giving up on the DVD BACKUP and bought a new PS2 v13. I read the other night about connecting a USB HD to it and read into it and noticed i had the proper stuff on my disc since it was a collection of programs..

    here's the list of the what the ultimate collection disc has

    # HD Loader 3.5
    # HD Loader 7c
    # Swap Magic 3.6+
    # HD Advance 3.0
    # USB Extreme / Advance
    # COG Swap Loader
    # PS2 Loader
    # Magic Mem
    # Zone Free DVD 2005
    # HDDump 0.8.1
    # CDLoader

    so i went thru someone's guide on using USBEXTREME and went ahead and gave it a shot i used a 120 Maxtor HD n Formatted it w/ USBEXTREME into FAT32, Connected it to my PC and backed up a list of games and only a few worked.. here's the list!

    Silent Hill 2 - WORKED
    Silent Hill 3 - DID NOT WORK
    Silent Hill 4 - WORKED
    Burnout 2 - DID NOT WORK
    Sonic Mega Collection - WORKED
    Fatal Frame 3 - WORKED
    Killzone - DID NOT WORK
    Toca Race Driver 3 - DID NOT WORK
    Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow - DID NOT WORK
    Red Nina - End Of Honor - DID NOT WORK

    i read the list of the games that do and dont work.. i got one thats listed as not working to WORK!..

    NOW THE QUESTION..

    i seen people post about HD ADVANCE & HD LOADER..

    now are those programs better than USBEXTREME?

    will my HD work with HD LOADER & HD ADVANCE?..

    can the games i could not backup w/ USBEXTREME work with HD LOADER or ADVANCE?..


    i would really appreciate the help.. i went and read many bullentins but they always lose me with other new ideas that dont work and people always post different results..!!

    ohh yeah another question i ahve for sure.. since all the games here in the US are all mostly NTSC is there a way to burn the IMG FILE of the BACKUP and edit it to PAL format so maybe they can work for the USBEXTREME?.. or is there a better way to make a lot of games work?!

    hey,

    i m pretty new here to, but from what i have gathered (and somebody correct me if i m wrong)

    slims cant use hd loader, or hd advance, they r for fat ps2, which have a hdd connected via the ps2 network adapter.

    yes there are programs that will convert pal to ntsc and vice versa, they r in this forum somwhere ( i forget where, sorry, do a search perhaps), but i think the results r a bit mixed with ceretains games not 100% compatible.

    i m sure other ppl will help u out more than i can, i'm still learing myself.

    cheers
