Can Anyone Help Me - tina... –
I have a maxtor hard drive 80GB and I have got it nearly full up with PS2 games. I have just purchased another maxtor 200GB
hard drive so as to have more room for adding games but I wondered if you knew how I could transfer the games from the 80
GB drive to the new 200GB drive.
I was pointed to a website to download WinHIIP V1.7.6 in order to carry this out using my PC. I have tried downloading the
software from the webpage but it does not open.... Could anyone send me a copy of WinHIIP 1.7.6 or show me where else I
could get it.
My Computer is running Windows XP home and I have both CD and DVD writers, also I currently have 2 hard drives on my PC -
both Seagate 200GB and 80GB I also have spare USB 2.0 ports that I can use....
I wondered what cables and/or additional equipment may be required to do the transfer also any additional software or
changes that I need to make to my PC.
I would be eternally grateful if anyone could assist me with this (also my son would be so impressed if I could achieve this)
all the very best
Is this post just for the WinHIIP download or are there others within this list that I need!
How do I copy the contents or the 80GB to the 200GB using my PC without losing all the data....
Open winhiip, mount the drive with all the games, then hit the button "Copy Drive" and choose the 200GB. It takes a while but just sit and wait and it'll be done soon. Afterward you can take this chance to install additional games cuz it'll be way faster than ripping from HDLoader.
Slow down abit.... mount this drive!!!! need more details, how do I do this with XP Home....
How do I connect the Maxtor 80GB to my pc..... it's already formated for
PS2 (will XP see it) then how do I connect the Maxtor 200GB to my PC.....
What drive needs mounting and how!
can you take me through the copy proccess as well.....
all the very best and thanks in advance for your help
Attach the two HD (the one of 80 GB and the one of 200 GB) with a flat IDE cable to a spare IDE/PATA socket in your motherboard. If you don't have a spare socket, disconnect the CD/DVD, you don't need it to copy the HD.
When you connect the two HDs ("source" is the 80 GB, "target" is the new 200 GB), put one as "master" and the other as "slave". I suggest putting "source" as slave and keeping "target" as master, it's done using the clip between the power and IDE socket of your HDs (sometimes they are labelled as "MA" "SL" and "CS", you are interested only in the first two, "master" and "slave" respectively, avoid using "cable select").
I don't know how windos names the HD on the (probably) secondary IDE port, i think that WinHIIP will detect "source" without problems once launched.
Now you should follow WinHIIP documentation on how to format "target" as a PS2 HD and how to copy on it the content of "source". When this step is done, you shutdown your PC, disconnect the "target" HD and put in your PS2 (if you followed my suggestion above the disk should be set as master) and you are done.
To be safe, if you don't have an on/off switch on your PC PSU (power supply unit), remove the cord from your wall power socket.
Hope this helps, if something isn't clear enough, ask freely, me or someone else will reply... (=
