    Hello. I was doing some research on HDLoader for PS2. And I was wondering... how is it? I want to hear people's testimonials, not a professional review. Tell me everything I should know about it, good or bad.

    - Is it easy to use?
    - How many games do you have that fully work?
    - What are the good things/bad things about it?
    - Where did you buy it?
    - Would you recommend it?

    Stuff like that... it seems very promising, I might buy a PS2 with a 120GB HDD and HDLoader, just thought I'd hear from some members before spending around $300 for something. Just the idea of renting games and copying them to the HDD sounds awesome. But is it reliable?

    Thanks.

    EDIT: Also, whats HDAdvance? I've read somewhere that HDAdvance is a rip-off of HDLoader, but whats the difference?

    I have it and it's very easy as long as u have a modchip for the downloaded copy of hd loader or a retail copy and u will not need a modchip I have 5 game on it now.

    Edit: Yes HDAdvance is a rip-off of HDLoader

    I won't need the Slide Tool or Flip Top Cover or anything like that right?
    Is PS2 like Xbox where ejecting the CD will quit the game?

    I'm not clear on this, after I hit Install in the HDLoader menu, I have to put the original game disc, but won't ejecting the HDLoader disc exit back to the PS2 menu?

    have you ever tried using GameShark?

    works great, the disc just loads up a menu with all your games loaded, you pick the game you want and it loads.

    List of stuff u need if u do not have a modchip.
    Retail version of HDLoader
    Network adapter
    IDE Hard drive ( I Recommend a maxtor at least 80GBs )

    List of stuff if u have a modchip
    Network adapter
    IDE hard drive
    A downloaded copy of HDLoader.

    Also once u load HDloader. It has the options to install the games or load a game from the list. And once the game is loaded it stay loaded no matter if the tray is open or closed. To load a new game u have to reset the ps2 so HDLoader can load again.

    Seems promising. Now I just have to find a fat PS2 that isn't used. All the stores have the slim ones....
