    I was wondering how to put a hard drive into my ps2 so i can store my games on there and not have to put in a disc everytime? Also where do i get the harddrive and do i need any programs to install it? How large of a hard drive can i put in? Thanks

    You'll need the PS2 network adapter, a compatible hard drive and one of the following software

    HD Advance 2.0 which supports upto 200GB drives
    HD Loader which is no longer sold in the US which supports upto 120GB drives

    This will not work on the new slim PStwo's

    Before you go out and buy a hard drive, look it up here on this website to see if it fits on the network adapter and works properly.

    There is a product out there called USB Extreme which is like HD Advance/Loader for USB hard drives, but I hear load times are horrible since the PS2 still uses USB 1.1.
