V12 HDD proof-of-work and Installation pics ! Official ICE Team Release...
this is very tempting..................... especially for a noob with little soldering practice, and only thick solder. (had the practice well, took electronics for four years in high school, but its been 4-5 years SINCE high school ended soooo)
What kind of limits on hard drive size are we talking? Least / most usable?
I havent heard the terms 40 and 80 conductor before, whats the difference / what do they mean? Im willing to rip my ps2 apart and try I just need the extra info.
this is cool!!
How you connect the HD to POWER? The hard disk uses +5v and +12v, isn't it?
Sorry, but my english is poor.
this solution is very nice.
But the problem is only with the power for the hdd.
We can only get the power outside of the ps2.
using 2.5"HDD and USB voltage??is this possible?
Yes that can work if there are enough power in the ps2 psu and if the usb fuse dont blow (if there are any fuse)

to havocxrush: soldering skill is the same needed to install a mod chip and HDD limit is the same limit HDLoader accepts
Most (all?) newer 2.5" HDDs has two +5V-supply-lines, and the startup-peak for the drives are 1.0 Amp. I have no idea if this is too much for the 5V-points one can find inside the PSTwo?
automan: Did you figure out the problem with HDL wanting to reformat the HDD on every cold-start?
Has anyone tried this, to get an activity-LED:
to thomas: best solution is to connect a 5V regulator like a standard 7805 to ps2 main supply 8.5V...main power serves 5 Ampere so that's enough to connect a bunch of HDDs...i could not fix the reformat problem...i don't have the time to fix it that's why i make this public...maybe some other out of the community can fix it...
the formatting problem is a software problem me thinks. So what we need is a modified version of HD Loader....I'm no programmer so i can't help unfortunatly.
