Little question about HDD and network adapter
Little question about HDD and network adapter –
Hi! I'm a little new on the scene of ps2 :S I have a question, with the network adapter can I have access to the memory card to install the hdloader or other things?
It is not necesary, since you can transfer stuff using cds (burn a ulaunchelf into a disc and use it to transfer data from a USB drive to the memory card)
Having a Network adapter helps you to connect using the network, but its not that useful.
Short answer: no, its not needed unless you need an HDD connected.
If you want to play games from HDD you will need a Network Adapter!
@karurosu & solidus27:
I think you guys both missed the point here. He was not asking whether or not the network adaptor was needed (which it definitely is, as he wants to use HDLoader). But he was really asking if the network adaptor will allow him to install everything he needs to MC, which it will NOT do without the help of other tools.
The network adaptor is one necessary ingredient (it holds the IDE interface) for a working HDLoader setup on a fat PS2, but just buying a network adaptor will not in itself help you to run the homebrew programs needed to install HDLoader for use from a memory card. Some additional software tools will be needed both to perform such installation, and to then let you launch the HDLoader elf (PS2 program file) that you have installed.
The best overall solution today is to install the homebrew boot package known as FMCB (==Free MCBoot). You can find lots of information/tutorials about this and how to install it (using various tools or even free volunteer installation services) in the FreeVAST subforum inside the forum for Homebrew/Dev stuff. (FreeVAST is the old name for FMCB.)
