Not buying HDL –
is it possible to not buy hdl/hda and still play games off my hdd? i don't need to rip games onto the hdd, and i'm simply going to just send isos from my pc to hdd. do i need to buy hdl to format the drive and load the menu screen so i can access my hdd? or can i just format using WinHIIP and load the menu screen using the MC expliot?
I think you would still need it formatted in the ps2. There is a utility for doing that, I believe it was something like ps2 hdd format tool.
Just pop the HDD into your PS2 and start HDL/HDA via MC Exploit. Should work.
so if you do the format thing using the utility, it would be the same as the hdl formating the hdd?
yea it only takes a few seconds.
The MC exploit version can do everything the retail version can, and it's actually better thanks to Zer0-X's patches, plus it's much, much smaller (no unnecessary junk data).
