Default Ps2 Hdd

I have the PS2 HDD and have recently decided to quit playing FFXI. My question is would I be able to use this HD in my computer? I would like to put it to some good use seeing how Sony will not support it with any other games.

if you cant for some reason you could always try out Black Rhino linux

That HDD would suck in your computer, it's 5400rpm.

I was just thinking about using it for MP3 storage.

ANY hard disk RPMs are ok. I have a 10GB 3200RPM and it runs fine on 98, ME, XP, 2003 and Longhorn. I just decided to put it on the shel as i got 120GB and a 160GB Maxtor.

Basically, all drives works with music or other stuff, regardless RPMs
