i do not know if this question has been asked before so please bare with me.
you see i recently did the psone disc exploit on my ps2 and added a hard drive
although i had a choice of a couple of hard drives laying around my house the only one that fitted my ps2 was a seagate 300gb hard drive ( the other extra ones were 20gb, and a 10gb)The problem that i have been running is that my hard drive gets INCREDIBLY hot after i have been playing a game off the hd for like 40 mins. And it gets to the point where i almost can not touch it because it is so hot. as far as i know the hard drive is 300gb, 7200rpm and has a 16mb buffer. My questions is if this is normal with Playstation 2's and if i am killing my hard drive by doing this. Also it would be nice if anyone could share a fix if there is any for this problem. thanks in advance
