I have an older matrix chip that allows me to boot directly from a drive. I've read that some of the loading times are less than desirable and was wondering if there was a mod that allowed a faster transfer rate to the drive itself.
The HDD interface can transfer data way faster than the PS2's CD/DVD drive can.
Anyways, there isn't such a mod because the hardware of the FAT Playstation 2's Network Adaptor only includes an IDE disk interface (Not designed for SATA).
