You can't put the games on the ps2 hdd. you either have to load the game through usb or through network(SMB).

ya. because of the increase of performance the games cannot be fragmented at all. try this program to defragment the individual game files. you should also keep all games unpatched.

I've been testing Open PS2 loader build 203 on my PS3 (PAL 60GB).

Both wired & wireless loading via SMB work (share is on a Win XP machine).
Wireless performance is worse than USB (choppy intro's), wheras wired (Gigabit connection) performance is better than USB (not perfect yet).

The developers are overhauling the network code so I'm guessing better performance will be forthcoming.

Game compatability is definately improving. Some I've tested (all PAL);

Spy vs Spy = works
Gran Turismo 4 = works
Ready to Rumble Round 2 = works with Mode 6 enabled
Final Fantasy XII = works
Need for Speed Hot Pursuit = works
Time Splitters 2 = works
Smugglers Run 2 = works (didn't work with older versions like 0.3)

Ya, it's playing ps2 game images you have on your PC hdd. It works with wireless too.

there's no official release yet of version 0.7 which supports SMB. The source code is open source so anyone with the no-how can compile the elf. I don't have my ps2sdk set up properly to compile it. shouldn't be much longer for version 0.7 though ver 0.6 doesn't support SMB
