I haven't modded my ps2 yet but i'm wantin to know how much a good hard drive would be
well you would need a network adaptor and you would also need a way of accessing the hd for it to work.
Definitly a Maxtor probally a 120 Gb is what I would recomend. (It really depends on what your gonna do with it)
Hard Drive alone 120Gb >>>>>eh mabey 95$
Why do you need a network adapter for the hard drive?
The Network Adaptor has an IDE and Molex 12v, 5v Connetor on the back of it. So you simply plug the hard drive into it. Then slip it all into the back of your PS2 V1-v10 Not the new PS2 Slim.
Its a pretty stupid system if you ask me. But it works rather well. Obviously your planning to use the hard drive to backup your legally purchased games. To do this you would require third party software. HDAdvance or HDLoader(No Longer in production).
Hope this helps you a bit. Just a warning that min hdd space is 40gig. So dont even think of grabbing that old hard drive lieing around. LOL.
Peace and Greetz 2 all
So you don't need to get online with the hdd the network adapter is just the power for the hdd right.
Yup Pretty much, I stand to be corrected but it simply allows the IDE and MOLEX power to plug into the DEV9 Port. (Lil Port on the top of the expansion bay behnid that cover) Sorry to dissapoint all those who hide there drugs there but thats a Valid Expansion bay guys.

System your wrong.
You can have hd's below 40 gig.
Some People have had luck with below 40gig Yes, But not alot and Ive tried a 30gig and It DIdnt work so youd wanna go higher and In anycase Anything less that 40 aint exactly gonna hold alot of games.
