Default Re: PS2 HDD Slaved?

that white cable in the middle with 34pins is what you use to connect your floppy disk drive to your mother board. The twist in the cable also tells you its for floppy

I think i found my solution.. I don't have to fumble with taking apart the brackets on the PS2 HDDand opening my case again..

Yea, but i gotta do what i gotta do. It's currently a waste of money sitting where it's at. Why not take advantage of it?

Get a external casing for the hard drive, then you can make it an external HDD for backups etc.

I don't know much about it either, but from a little reading the other day it looks like SATA? Someone correct me if I'm wrong

I'm afraid to tell you, that it might not work. Just because I'm sure the HDD that the PS2 uses is some funky connectoin so you can't use it with anything else. You know how companies do that.

But I'm not sure, I can't tell what it is. You might want to explore around on the Internet to see if anyone else has done this.
