actually the HDD that sony even gave with the linux kit was only 5400 rpm.
when you run a faster rpm drive like 7200 series, the faster the moving the faster the heating.
so if you are running a 5400RPM drive that is 40-60-80gb no problemo.
if you are running 7200rpm (extra speed) that is where potentially you can have a heating issue since the drive is also on the floor, there is no movement for heat to be pushed out. that is the problem.
Hey Terry, you got any pics you can share?

Before this goes any further.....game_master, I would say create a new topic in the Buy/Sell and link it there. Keeps the threads cleaner.
seems like a bit of overkill.. before hdl_dump i installed like a dozen games without a problem.. now i install almost all of my games with hdl_dump, so overheating while installing isnt a problem.. well they way you presented it.
It's very good idea. But it would be better if some group could make the third party network adaptor with the connection between standard IDE / USB 2.0 and PS2 HD socket. Would it be possible?
Yeah, I'm working on a setup for a hard drive caddy so I can just pull it out whenever I need to put more crap on it.
