Hey everyone. I am very new to the PS2 mod scene but am intrigued by the possibility of booting and playing games from a hard drive (ala xbox). I would do it in a heartbeat. I have a v1 PS2. I am pasting an article from last week by someone who was answered by IM, I think. Could someone please answer these questions in the thread? Thanks for your help on this. ToastX PASTE: i'm new here and i dont know nothing about ps2 hard drive. i have a couple of questions maybe u guys can help me 1 - do i need a modchip in order to install a HD? 2 - can i go to any computer store and buy any HD or do i need to buy a HD designed just for the ps2? 3 - where can i find a how to install guide?
