SATA Network Adapter Compatibility
SATA Network Adapter Compatibility –
Recently bought the SATA network adapter available on ***********, the one that only connects the harddrive and doesn't have a network port.
I've been doing some searching on the forums and noticed people having issues with OPL with these devices and wanted to check to see if this was still the case or these people just had bad drives?
I would've thought this clone with SATA ports simply presented an IDE interface to the PS2 and translated all the information needed in hardware?
like fred durst would say, "results may vary"...
some people claim they are the shit, others claim they are just shit. most of the people that complains that it doesn't work they don't know shit about network adapters and such, i suggest you try your shit before jumping to any conclusions, and for the love of god, SATA doesn't mean you can stuff more than 1TB discs in these things... mine is a fake network adapter, but it's IDE, not sata... and it works like a charm since the minute i've tried it.
There is a guy selling DIY HD kits for v12/v13 slim PS2s on eBay and one of his kits supports SATA. It mentions having been revised to improve compatibility, so it seems that there could be similar issues with this (whatever they were). I dunno if it's just an SATA-IDE bridge in both of these devices or what. It may even be that the improvements were problems cause by the particular design instead of the SATA conversion (power delivery issues, signal noise issues, etc)
