Why do the ide cables need to be 6" or less?
Eight heads says his works at a longer length...I don't no why.
I tried several different brands of hdd's with and without mobile rack and my findings were 6" or less.
Or hdloader wants to reformat drive or at game launch boots to a black screen.
maybe it depends on your NA model? or possibly the 40 wire to 80 wire assembly he has going on (all data lines grounded)?
I do know if you keep it 6" or less it will work and has been confirmed by others.
I was searching around on the net and I found this. The guy making the external drive kit will probably be giving us a pretty good deal here. Anyways, Stonewall Cable is the only place on the internet that I could find making custom cables. They sell Male to Female IDE extension cables that can be any length up to 48". The only problem is the price. You can order one that is 6"
$25.98 + $0.12 per inch.
Ouch..... that's a high price!

On the cheap side, why couldn't you put 40 header pins into the network adapter and just use a 6" cable? Probably sounds dumb, but you could rip some out of an old parallel/serial cable or buy some cheap chips at Radioshack and gut the pins. A bridged connection only needs to be made to transfer the signal.
if i get a a hardrive case that has 3 fans on it would this be too much power to pull from the ps2 with the hardrive and 3fans
import see you got Helltick's stuff.
Can you tell me exactly what helltick used and whether he modded his NA.
cause i'm going to look for the cables this week. At i want to be 100% sure what i get will work.
You dont have to mod the na or ps2...40 wire ribbon and 4 wire molex will fit.
Just gotta work it a bit.
okay but could you get more specific like
is it 1 6 inch 40 pin idc cable
does it matter if it's ata/66 or ata/100 or ata/133
and 1 molex power cable
P.S. Helltick what about you buy the stuff for me ship it to me i'm in Canada and i'll pay you for your time?
