Yep, the program you want is called WinHiip (easily googleable) Its a special program that reads PS2 Hard Drives only. DO KEEP IN MIND: you must have either an enclosure or put it on the IDE/SATA cable on your computer so your BIOS will detect it. WINDOWS WILL NOT DETECT THESE PS2 FORMATTED HARD DRIVES. However that does not matter, as long as your BIOS sees it. If your bios sees it, all is good, boot into windows and load WinHIIP. It will detect it. If you're using an enclosure then it really doesn't matter. Plug that into your USB port and turn it on. Your plug and play will recognize the enclosure. After windows sees it turn on WinHIIP and choose the "Select Drive" button and you should see your hard drive in the list. Then it's just a matter of choosing the "Copy Drive" option. Or take each out by it's own. Meaning "Extract Image/s" This will save them as ISO's on your computer then you just pop in your new drive and turn on WinHiip again and "add images" Back onto the new hard drive.

I am a complete novice, can you help me please? I have purchased a 3.5 SATA/IDE back up enclosure to transfer files from old to new desktop. I have removed frame holding old harddrive into tower but cannot...


You want to remove the hard disk from old computer, connect it to the enclosure, and connect it externally to the new computer, right?
Now you have a problem connecting hard disk to the enclosure.
Usually there are no SATA/IDE enclosures. They are either IDE or SATA.
If the data connector in the hard disk (HDD) is rectangular with around 40 pins inside, it is an IDE HDD. Else if it has L shaped horizontal connector, it is a SATA HDD.
I suggest you to take the hard disk to the store and ask for a matching enclosure. If you bought the wrong one, they might replace it with the correct one.
If you feel you want to do it yourself, let us know. However an IDE HDD cannot be connected to a SATA enclosure and vise versa.
I sincerely hope you will get to copy the required files to your new computer. However before copying, it is better to install a reliable virus guard.

How to fomat a Playstation2 Disc


You can't. The playstation 2 SL is not a CD/DVD burner. If you want to make a hack disk for it, look online. they will have disc burning software to make PS2 games. They may be hard to find, but you can.

PS2 HDD Partition Error


Hi,
A Partition error is the amount of segments that the hard-drive is split into.
For example we have 1 hard-drive Named C:/ Which Is 20 gigabytes. Then we decide that we want to use A Quarter of that drive, solely for saving games On. So 5 gigabytes Will Now Be allocated For Game-saves, This Will be known as Partition 2 Or D:/ So we now have 2 Partitions 1 is C:/ And 1 Is D:/ Partition C:/ is Currently 15 Gigabytes, And Partition D:/ is 5 Gigabytes.
Making a total Of 20 Gigabytes. So if your getting a partition error, it,s either because the game your attempting to transfer Is larger than the Partition, thats trying to receive it. You may be sending 4 gig to a 3.5 gig partition. Or your attempting to send it to a partition that is incorrect or inadequately lettered/numbered.
I hope this enables you to understand, the basics of Partitions on drives.
