I've been doing research the last week and i believe have have it all straight when it comes to getting games onto a PS2 Hdd and then using the mem card exploit. SO What i want to do is buy a swap magic cd and then use that to boot a HD Loader cd that I can download and burnd from suprnova.org. THEN, once i rip a game onto my harddrive, i was wondering if i could use the mem. card exploit; So that i don't have to use the SM CD, then swap to the hdloader cd again, and so on... Is this possible? Or am i just better off buying a real HDLoader cd or HDAdvance, and not bothering with the Swap Magic cd? Any help would be great. P.S: I'm not using an official sony hdd, im using a maxtor 60gig... if that makes any difference.. THANKS!
