PC -> PS2..do yall turn off ur Computer/ps2 to remove the hard drive? –
well it kinda sucks when ur PS2 is up stairs and and ur comp is down stairs..and u have to take ur HDD down stairs to ur comp jus to copy games...i wouldnt have to do this if HD loader stop giving me da crappy message that says"invalid ps2 disc" btw...how long does it take it to check the cd/dvd...cuZ for me it seems to hang so i dont use the hd loader....but that is not the main topic...i was wondering...do yall turn off the computer befor u remove/attach the HDD...or do u jus leave it on...i turn mine off because i am scared to get fryed...hahaha.
uhh.. YES plz turn it off... it's like adding a new video card or ram when your comp is turned on, would u ever wanna do that? lol
useless thread! its common sense people that you turn of ur shit before adding parts to it... unless you use an external hdd rack like what other guys do in here
PS2 v9 - Dead Laser
DMS v9 - Flash 2.3b3
HDLoader - Maxtor 120GB
The HDD racks are also IDE, so removing or inserting a drive into the rack while the computer is on is not possible.

You might have a shot with an external USB drive enclosure, but I don't know if any of the HDD dumping programs support that.
And hotswap on the PS2 side is simply impossible.
yeah this makes no sense whatsoever. do what i do, get a computer in your room, using your computer downstairs, rip the game into an ISO using dvd-decrypter or just extract the game from the rar files. share the folder with the game files and use the computer in your room to install the game over the network. for me it takes a max of 9mins to install one full dvd. just make sure you have 10gb free at all times for each image.

you can do it if u use the usb adapter inside pc case, or to use a SATA conection
