dude all the WINHIP stuff is so complicated...
actually it's pretty easy, let me know if you have any questions
If your ps2 is not modded, and if you don't have/want a flip-top, you will need:
1 the original hdadvance cd/dvd,
2 the network adapter,
3 a compatible hard-drive.
You can then backup your games using your ps2, or use winhiip, but that would need a little technician skill, as you need to hook the ps2 hard-drive to your computer (this is very easy).
Another method used, is the memory card exploit. for that you only need an original PS1 CD and a hacked/free software installed on your memory card !! yes, this seems the best, but to get this free software on your memory card, you will need the original swapmagic disk with a gameshark, or a fliptop with a gameshark, and then you will have to burn a special hacked disk you will create, that will transfer the files from the cd to your mc.
the second method costs a bit more, except of course if you already have a gameshark and flip-top or swapmagic disks.
you can also use the mc exploit using an unmodded ps2, hdadvance, a cross link network cable, and a ftp server on your ps2 (look for instructions on this forums, keyword execftp)
cider, u think winhip is kinda easy? yea but you gotta download all this stuff and hook all this stuff up and upload...and...
its all very simple though, if you have any questions just ask
although 80 is tempting....
Do i just buy what you listen and plug it in and play or what
cider you soun like a guy who knows what hes doin could you do me a copy tht hacked ps1 disc and i buy it off ya
Hey Guys I have a PS2, I want the setup where I can have a game copy to the hard drive and run the game from the harddrive. I hope there is some kind of boot menu, What setup am I looking for?...HD Loader, etc..
Hd loader is exactly what your looking for
do you need the netwrok adapter to connect the hdd to the ps2?
I am in Australia, and the network adapter only has one slot (ethernet, for broadband).
I believe the one in the USA has two slots on it. Is the 2d slot for connecting the HDD?
Any info would be a help. Thanx.
the hard drive plugs into the front of the network adator not back
So are you sdaying that the HDD will always be outside of the ps2and not inside?
I thought the whole purpose was for it to be hidden in the expansion slot.
it is hidden. its preety simple to where it fits in bearing in mind you have a hard drive which fits in well such the maxtor
