I currently use swapmagic to play all of my backup ps2 games... it works just fine, but I am kinda getting annoyed with the loading times and having to swap cds in and out every time I want to play a game. I was thinking about trying to use the HDD method to play my games instead since I can store my whole collection on a drive. My questions about this are: 1. When playing Xbox games off of a HDD drive, the load times are 3x faster since its reading right off of the drive... so are the loading times any quicker for games when loading off of a drive compared to a burnt DVD? 2. Since your storing info on a HDD, can you store your save files onto the drive instead of using a memory card, like you would an xbox? 3. Can you also store ps1 games to play off of the drive? Also, if there are any other positives to using the HDD method compared to the standard swapmagic method, could you fill me in to? Thanks!
