    That is the question we all want to know. If so, please, please, post some easy 1-2-3 steps of how to go about doing this! You would be a hero!

    Yeah, this did go off topic, was hopeing someone would mention that, nevermind patching and all that stuff. We got to stick to the topic otherwise will never figure it out. :)

    That symantic ghost idea makes sense... try that and let us know.

    Thanks. I will try that when I can. Yesterday I just joined ps2ownz.com and it looks like I have to wait 5 days to download two files that I do not have:

    Disc ID Insertor V2.01
    Disc ID Insertor

    Unless anyone here has them that could post them.

    NecroX, have you installed the new Socom map, After Hours, using this method and played it online with a non-ps2 hard drive?

    When you first open the $ony hdd it comes preinstalled with all there software i can try to copy that to an empty hdd, because it cant just only work with just that "FFXI" hard drive because sooner or later some other company is going to make "off-brand" one, Right?? It has to be something with software.

    we are not about burning cd/dvd or modding our ps2. we are not about putting are full games onto the hard drive. all we want is a way to make a normal ide/eide hdd to act like a $ony ps2 hdd. agen read the first thread. thats what we are about. it has went off track. im new at this but is there a way for someone to delete the stuff that is not a part of this thread. thank you and i hope not to piss anyone off.

    NecroX, as I am going using ISO Buster I see 2 main branches. I called ISO and the other called UDF. Do I worry about the files under the UDF Branch?

    im getting the feeling that the hard drive is firmwared for the PS2 to recognize. There is no reason for any hard drive not to be recognized by an IDE channel.

    Freaking Sony screws its client base yet again. What happens when a hard drive goes bad and you have already purchases this hard drive. Lets say I am playing final fantasy and my hard drive goes bad... what then?

    There has to be a way to make a regular hard drive into a sony hard drive by way of software because Sony is disconinuing the hard drive. What support will ther be for people playing Final Fantasy a pay to play monthly fee game?

    Please not more bullcrap about installing games on the hard drive. There are other threads on this forum that do address that issue. This is just for the new socom maps we wish to have! WITH OUT BUYING A PAY TO PLAY GAME.

    I hate the fact that sony prepackaged that game. It forces people to join Final Fantasy...

    No... the word is that its being discontinued. That is why people are scrambling to get the maps for socom on a regular hard drive.

    Also the problem with the hard drive is this...

    1.People are copying games on the hard drive. They rent and copy them off on the hard drive.
    2. The companies are seeing there is more money to be made on selling memory cards then selling hard drives with almost an unlimited capacity.
