Network Adapter Mod, HELP ME
Network Adapter Mod, HELP ME –
hey, thanks in advance to anyone who can help me!
i need to modify my network adapter to use this stupid maxtor 120gig hdd, its like a 1/4th of an inch difference, ive seen a tutorial SOMEWHERE on how to do it before, but i just looked through 14 pages on this forum and cant find it, so if anyone knows how to do this please do tell, i will really apreciate it
also a mod may want to sticky this once someone answers, im sure this will help a lot of people, and save best buy a lot of money in returned hdd's, lol
My Maxtor 200gig from BestBuy fit in no problem.

First- you see how both the power and the IDE connectors are able to move about somewhat freely? If you open up the network adapter, you can see that both connectors are attached to a metal backing with rivets which allow the connectors to have a bit of "play" in their positioning. All you need to do is drill/dremel out the "slider" holes to allow the connectors to be in the correct position. It's pretty easy once you're looking at it... if you have any problems, I suppose I could write a small tutorial on the subject with pictures and such...
Oh, if you're REALLY having problems, you could always just remove both of the rivets, put the thing back together and just be careful whenever you plug/unplug the thing. If it's all attached and installed in the PS2, once you tighten the screws on the back of the network adapter, the drive isn't going to be going anywhere... unless you swing your PS2 around by the controller cables or like to shake it for some reason
thx for the replies, i already modded it though, i was so impatient to get it working i just started fiddling with it, im a comp technician (real job, lol) so it wasnt that hard, i just wanted some feedback first. all i did was take off the front cover, remove the torx screws, move the ide connector to the right (power couldnt go to left anymore or itd be outside the damned unit) then i soddered it into place since there wasnt a slot for the screws to slide. it works great
That tutorial was once on our website but when the site got lost I never rewrote it. If you unscrew the metal plate on the network adapter you can move the IDE and power connectors around, no soldering needed, and it doesn't harm your hard drive or ps2 at all
i vote for a sticky
I say no sticky.... too many stickies already.
Anyway most people have hdds that fit the na without modifications.
I think we should make one sticky page that leads to a page of a bunch of stickies. Sort of like the Uber Sticky Page or something......
V7 PS2 Messiah 2 Pro Mod

Or group the stickies in another pseudo-sticky based on reference.. for e.g. HDloader mods, skins and GUIs etc in one sticky
where can i get a torx screwdriver?
