Since different computers have different configurations, some old model computer may install the games slowly. Here is a tip which make your computer speed up in installing the PS2 games:
USB Extreme Win32 utility (Windows GUI) - Allows easy installation from your CD/DVD drive to your USB HDD
USBInsane (Windows GUI) - Allows you to install an ISO stored on the PC HDD as well as the CD/DVD drive.
USBeXtreme (DOS) - The setup program containing the format and install software
The DOS version is more stable and has a higher success rate for proper installations, but is not as simple as the GUI version. So we will guide you thru the DOS version.
USBeXtreme User Manual(MS-DOS mode)
To use the USBeXtreme on your PS2, you will need a USB Hard drive Enclosure with Hard drive installed (both devices are sold separately), either 3.5' or 2.5' USB Hard drive Enclosure with Hard drive can be use.
*For the installation of a Hard Drive into your USB enclosure, please refer to the user manual of the USB Enclosure if its the removable type.

If you are using a new
hard drive, you will need to initialize the hard drive with Windows
2000/XP.(For Windows 98/ME

Magic to initialize and format the harddisk) To initialize the
hard drive, connect the hard drive enclosure to your PC's USB port and install the
driver if its
