hello, my first time considering this so work with me. from all the info I have gathered, i believe I would like to use a hard drive to backup my ps2 games. My priority is cost! I want to do it in the cheapest manner possible. I already have a hard drive. I believe the only thing I will need to purchase is HDLoader or HDadvance 3.0... Anything else I need? I've been reading about the MC exploit and such... is that necessary? what about swap discs, do i need to buy one of those? Also is there any REALLY noob guides out there for accomplishing this? I have no idea what ELF files, and exploits and swap methods etc etc are so I could use some help! It seems that all i have to do is install the HDD, and then put in my HDloader/advance CD... place the backups on my PS2 HDD via PC using some wiip program or something.... and it should work? really, is it that simple? Then i dont understand the purpose of swap magic, or the exploit if you're using an HDD??? Thanks!
