Too small mate, and quite expensive, seen a couple of 200gb ones on ebay go for that :thumbsup:

I have a 200gb (186gb showing in Windows) but looking for about £31 for it.

Bit too much out of my budget. I could offer £20, which will probably be rejected....
#10
I have a Maxtor 250GB lying around somewhere that i'd do for £25

I'd want to run a health check on it first as it's not been used for a while, let me know if you're interested and i'll do it tonight :thumbsup:

Are you sure?

When I had my PS2 done it was compatible with up to 2TB or 256 games if I remember correctly.

This lists drives over 200GB as working

Are you running HDAdvance from a disc or a USB dongle?

I'll check it for you anyway just in case

Good to be back... :whistling:

It's up to you then mate, I only ever run it from the memory card / USB so I don't know about the limitations of using the disc. From what I can tell from reading up on it even if you install a larger HDD, it will work but you'll only be able to use the 200GB.

Have you thought about doing the "Free McBoot" exploit on your PS2? That way you woint need the HDAdvance discs, it will get rid of the limitations and also let you use your PS2 as a media centre for example.

LOL mate, I have very basic knowledge on this topic, and didn't understand a word of that haha. How would I go about putting the software onto a memory card?

There's a few options, first you can buy one already done for you;

260411552281

That's a little expensive but you'll probably be able to get one from on here for cheaper.

Or just make your own but to do that you need action replay max. If you know someone that already has a memory card with Free McBoot on it they can create another one for you.

What is basically does is it's a little application that sits on your memory card, when you boot your PS2 it will take you to a screen where you can launch homebrew applications from USB. One for example is HDadvance, it's the same as when you run it off the disc but it supports larger hard drives and also has a built in cheat facilty.

Edit - I just see another way of doing it yourself using swap magic, there is a guide here

The swap magic discs can be got on here for under a tenner or probably borrowed.

Did you want that HDD anyway it's healthy.
