hi, a noobie here. ive been dumping games to my HD via HD loader directly from the console and now and Im a bit concerned about my PS2's laser. I read somewhere in this forum that this method reduces the lifespan of the laser. Now, Im about to try Winhiip in dumping more games via PC. Questions:
1. Is it safe to dump games using winhiip even though I already have other games in my HD copied via HD Loader? I also read somehere here that someone lost his games (dumped via HD Loader/Advance) after using winhiip.
2. What are the steps in dumping games via PC? What othe programs will I need?
3. Lastly, Is it possible to copy my games from the HD to my PC's HD and delete dummy files (so I can shrink the file) and dump it back into the PS2 HD?
