HDD sizes –
I am a noob and I did some searches to no avail. My friend just told me about this today. He was telling me about a hack using a PS1 game and a Memory card. Seems awesome. He said that he's heard of people using up to a 120GB hard drive. I was wondering what the largest HDD this hack will work with. Also, I have read some things on the site about shrinking the ISO. I imagine this has to do with making the game smaller on the HDD as to afford more room for more games. I figured at 4.5GB per game, a 120 would allow only 26 games. As we all know, men gauge their manhood on the size of their package, and how many games they can fit on their modded PS2. I have access to a 120GB Maxtor, but also a 300GB Western Digital. Obviously I would prefer the 300GB and to shrink the games to get more on the HDD. Would this be possible with the memory card hack? Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.
I use HDAdvance 2.0 discs, because I didnt know about the hack before I bought them,which allow you to up to 200GB. I think the hack though which you can get for free has been patched to allow you to use 200GB disks. Theres a list out there as far hdd compatability. Which tells you which hdds are compatable and there sizes.
So 200gb is the largest you have heard of? I have the 300gb and would like to use that one, but if 200gb is the largest, then I will just have to get one of those. What about shrinking the ISO? How does one go about doing that?
Using Zero-X's patch, you should theoretically be able to use a HDD up to 2 TB or so I believe. Something along those lines AFAIK.
V7 PS2 Messiah 2 Pro Mod
/ Seagate 200GB 7200 RPM HDD
Ext HDD Mod
Works Like a Charm! Already filled up all 183 gb!
search for "48 bit lba patch" by zero-x. the maximum possible size is beyond any existing hard drive by far.
"shrinking game" iso's can be done in numerous ways, search for that too.
Here's the file you want to update it...mind you you'll need an unpacked copy of the ELF, but those aren't too difficult to find (Google is your best friend in these sorts of situations)
