Games using PS2 HD / HDLoader

    I know the upcoming ESPN Football takes advantage of the Sony HD by caching plays to the HD to be shown later in a highlight reel -- like Sportscenter or Primetime.

    If I use a third party drive and format it with HDLoader, and play the official disc (NOT OFF THE HD), will the game be able to use the HD for the highlights? Or would you need the Sony drivers for that to work (and can you install Sony drives on a third party HD)?

    And this is just a question about how a thrid party HD works with the PS2. I know the game isn't out yet, but that was the only example I could think of.

    I highly doubt that a drive formatted with HDLoader will work with PS2 games that utilizes the PS2 hard drive.

    That's what I figured, but can you use the Sony disc to somehow get the PS2 games to see the HD?

    no, official sony hdd has a special firmware in it that other hdd don't. You might be able to get the games to recognize them by using hacks... I heard of hacks to get the resident evil game to work with hdd but, I don't know much about
