solid state disks and ps2
solid state disks and ps2 –
i'm curious about the next generation of storage devices - solid state disks.
i'm wondering how would they work in ps2. they can be plugged via ata interface but i'm unsure whether you can connect one with network adapter.
currently the most irritating issue is the spin-up of the hdd when the hdd driver is initialized which can take even 5 seconds. and the relative noise of ps2 when it's working with hdd.
did anybody get lucky enough to come across one of those devices and actually test them with ps2?
Ehh I have one in my PS3, but... it has sata interface... no luck with the PS2 and sata, AFAIK...
PS2 network adapters only fit IDE hard drives, and I haven't seen any solid state drives with an IDE interface.
Check these out. You could use a CompactFlash card.
Well, upon closer inspection, none of those specific ones would work unless you also had a laptop (44-pin) to standard (40-pin) HDD adapter in there. This will be expensive to implement, flash is still WAY more pricey than HDD.
i was thinking ahead, to the point where such disks would become cheaper ;-)
