Hello guys! I've got a few questions regarding the PS2 HDD loading. First of all I'd like to say that my old PS2 Phat could be going boink with it's laser so I'd prefer to transfer my game collection to an external HDD for safe keeping. Now comes the questions: 1. Does the Expansion Bay have to be a certain model, ie. can I buy a US expansion bay for my PAL PS2? 2. How is the compatibility for games like FFXII and possibly newer ones? 3. Are the load speeds faster for HDD compared to disc? 4. Is USB loading possible? 5. Is there someone in Europe who can do the Free MCBoot install? Thanks for the replies!
