Question about Removeable Hard Drive Rack
Question about Removeable Hard Drive Rack –
Note: This is not for Playstation 2. This is for a PC Computer.
Here's the link for the product.
Now, to my knowledge and understanding, this rack will sit in one of my 5.25" bays, and I will be able to put the hard drive (from my PS2) into this when I want to transfer games on to it. Then I will be able to easily take it out out of my PC and put it back into my PS2.
Does this sound correct?
hmm... ur comp mite read it fine... but it connects though a... firewire port and it's gonna transfer slowly... 133MB/Sec!? i tihnk a netowrk could be faster than that :-p also my comp from hdd to hdd transfer like around 27 mbs ^_^ and takes like 1/2 a min to a min for one full game
also.. the program mite not even detech the hdd in the firewire port? -_-
Did you even click the link? Or look at the pictures?
That's for the model with the LCD, but they're exactly the same in terms of functionality.
It connects via IDE... And since when is 133MB/sec slow? (Note: I know this isn't the speed that the games install on the PC, but he doesn't seem to understand that.)
It will save you the hassle of opening the PC's case and mess with cables everytime you want to connect the HD to your PC. But when you want to connect the HD to your PS2, you would still need to open the cartridge/tray, remove the HD and stick it in your PS2. Unless you install the same rack on your PS2 (see Helltick's mod http://www.psx-scene.com/forums/showthread.php?t=24629)
Btw, I used to have similar rack/trays for PCs, the tray gets preetty hot after use...
Thanks for the info. I know things'll get hot, but I would only be using it for a few minutes, it shouldn't be a problem.
I don't mind taking the Network Adapter/Hard Drive out of the PS2 as I do my computer.
a couple of people use them to swap back and forth from ps2-pc and like them, from what i hear though these trays can tend to have some problems, but i also hear that that brand is one of the best right now and is fairly cheap... good luck

Problems..What problems? Its gotta be safer than manhandling the hdd and constantly unpluging IDE/Molex...And they come with a fan to help with cooling.

Hmm. But wouldn't an enclosure be better? I bought one for $45 (cdn) and it transfers through the USB 2.0 port at a speed of about 9.9 mbs. Of course, you do have to unplug and replug the connectors (and I think I might be damaging it considering how often I do it) but it's easier and faster.
