Install the Hard Drive
How to install the HDD
Before you start
1. An official PS2 network adapter. Either adapters that are shown in the picture can be used.
2. A Suitable hard disk. You can use the official hard disk or a standard IDE hard disk drive with a capacity of up to 2000 GB (48BIT). If you use a standard IDE drive, you will need to make sure that it actually fits into your network adapter. Most Western Digital drives do not physically fit onto the PS2 network adapter without some modification, so we recommend that you stay clear of this brand. There are also issues with some modern Seagate drives, which cause problems when used in conjunction with older models of the official PS2 network adapter. We recommend using a Maxtor or Hitachi brand HDD with HDAdvance. If HDAdvance freezes at the splash screen for you, then it is due to the conflict mentioned above. In order to resolve this you will either need to purchase a new hard disk drive or network adapter.
3. A PS2 with a "Bay-Type" expansion port. All PS2's will have this expansion port except for the first three Japanese models (SCPH 10000, SCPH 15000 and SCPH 18000) which have a PCMCIA expansion port instead. These models are not supported by HDAdvance.
How to Install
Your Hard Disk
Check that the IDE and power ports on your hard disk drive properly align with the IDE and power connectors on your network adapter.
Configure the jumper
setting on the hard disk drive so it is set to MASTER. To find the correct
jumper settings for your hard disk drive, either check the label on top of the
hard disk drive or consult your reference manual.
Carefully slide the hard disk drive into the PS2 expansion bay as shown below. Push until the network adapter is connected to the back of your PS2, then screw in the screws on the back of the network adapter to secure the hard disk drive and network adapter. Congratulations, you have successfully connected a hard disk drive to your PS2!
