V9/V10\V11 compatibility? –
From reding all the info in here, I assume that the latest versions of the PS2 are compatiable with all the latest hdloaders, homebrews, etc... My V7 is on it's way out I believe, and I want to get a new one before the PSTwo comes out, (without Harddrive capabilites, right?). Also, can I take my current HDD with my games and files on there out of my V7, then place it in the newer machine and still have everything on there operate okay? I run everything via mc exploit btw. Thanks alot for the help.
The silver and blue PS2, are they V11? If not, which one is V11?
And are there differences between the editions concerning the fan or dvd drive built in?
I have no direct info on V11, but I doubt that there will be any problems in moving your disk to the new machine as you describe it. After all, the disk interface is NOT part of the PS2, but is instead built into the network adapter, and that will not change just because you move it to a new PS2.
The new model might have a slightly different BIOS, but I don't think that will be a problem, as HDLoader clearly handles most low-level details internally. (If that had not been the case the 48-bit LBA patch would not have worked.)

I got a SCPH-50004 which is a V10. Which is 100% okay.
I also got a SCPH-30004 which is a V3. With a defective DVD laser (reads CD okay)
I got the official HDLoader disc. And used it to install a Harddrive in my V10.
Put some games on it with the PS2 and also some games with the help of WinHIIP.
I also have HDLoader.ELF installed on my MemCard and a PS1 Demo disc to trigger it.
I can use my HD in my V10 en V3 with the use of the MC-Exploit en PS1 disc.
So in my case it is fully backwards compatible.
right on, thanks for the replies. Best buy is sellling a "97001", any idea what version this is? usa ntsc
v7 HDD to v11 works fine here.

I've read somewhere the v10 ps2 running v3.00 dvd driver and v11 ps2 running v3.02, just check it out with the browser.
I have a hitachi 120g+Lan only network adapter which works perfectly on both SCPH-39007/v7 ps2+HIT100 and SCPH-50007/v11 ps2+DMS3.
The only difference is the one with DMS3 could directly boot the hdloader from hdd while the other one needs a disc in tray. So I think you could just go for it...and forgive my poor English.

v9 is the 3.00 dvd, and v10 is the v3.02 driver for US NTSC
Yes, you're right, I didn't recall it correctly....thanks.
