    Chances are you will NOT be able to use the HDD for both the PC and the PS2, becasue they are differennt formats.

    My suggestion for the loading iso's trouble would be to buy a HDD.

    200GB usually will run you about $70 CND - This is about 50 loaded games.

    Then you will have no more need for disk's, you can just boot HD Loader and run the games off your HDD.

    Its easy to install "Origonal" games into the HDD, and you can even transfer ISO's from a computer via FTP!

    Its REALLY great, When games are played off the HDD theres less skipping, choppy play, and games load times are MUCH faster.!

    Good Luck, If you decide to get a HDD for the PS2 you will also need the PS2 Network Adapter. These can be tricky to find, so I would suggest looking at Ebay or your local *Used* video game stores :)
