ps2 3004 R model [buying internal IDE HDD soon]
hey guys im soon buying a IDE HDD soon to build internally into my ps2
do you have any suggestions as to what brand size and model i should buy or what you guys would reccomend?
PS2 Hard Drive Compatibility Chart
i checked there but theres waaaay too many HDD's listed and some are compatible and some arent and im going to limit my choices of HDD to the two brands MAXTOR and HITACHI because i heard many websites saying HDD of those brands do work for certain while seagate and western digial have issues, but if you are certain that some HDD from either seagate or western digital are compatible internally using the network adapotor then feel free to list them, i just dont want to end up buying one and having it incompatible or not working at all >.< so please help me out
and if it helps i live in germany so any model numbers of the specified brands i could acquire here would be helpful^^ thanks in advance~
PS: for the size i would prefer sizes ranging anywhere from 100~130GB more is ok but please no less than 100^^
and i heard that HDD sizes bigger than 145gb or something are not possible because of some kind of issue reading HDD with sizes over a certain number please confirm if this is true or not because im also not sure but i read it somewhere and it makes me feel uneasy buying HDD that are enourmously huge such as 200gb+ or even 2TB
i would appreciate if anyone could clear that up for me^^ thanks alot~
also are IDE HDDS dependant on the version of my ps2? like v9 v3 v2 etc..
and i so then how do i know what version the hdd requires from my ps2?
