I recently got my PS2 modded, and the whole reason I did this was so I could use a hard drive to play backups. I did the same thing for the Wii, and I can't play my games any other way. However, as I have a slim, I can't just plug in a hard drive and off I go. I guess I could trade and get a phat or something, but I do like the form factor of the slim. I hear there are cases you can stick a slim in that allow it to use hard drives, but those only seem to exist on google and no physical rendition of them exit. So I got to thinking. A network drive perhaps? My PS2 isn't that far from my router, so it wouldn't be hard to plug it into my network. However, I don't want to have my computer on all the time just so I can play my PS2 games. So, how about a hard drive that plugs directly into my router? This could be accessed from anywhere on my network, so perhaps I could load up my PS2 backups onto it? Anyway, has anyone done this before? A dedicated network drive? I don't want to build a small computer just for this. I would much rather have a hard drive or some device that lets me plug in my spare external hard drive via esata or USB or whatever. If this does work, I suppose I could get my Wii to use the network drive as well, freeing up a USB port. But if it doesn't work for my Wii, oh well, it's not like my hard drive plugged into it is an eye sore.
