I got this for $30. anybody know what it is?(yes, i am aware that it is a hard drive lol, but does anybody have any details?) it doesn't look like it connects to a regular PS2. I am a new user and can't post pics but you can see pics on my photobucket here:

Thanks in advance!

from the looks of the connector, i don't think it would fit into a slim ps2..your best bet is to check and see if you can plug it into the fat version

I have a fat PS2 and it doesn't fit in there. I used to have a slim and from what I remember it won't fit in it.

It looks like it's an external hard drive for certain PS2's. Check it out:

I think this is some kind thing developers use according to a Google Search. Bah! It has its own power cable!

I thought the external hdd here was only for the first model japan ps2s? The model that had the DVD drivers on a 8MB memory card right?

Was this not the HDD available for the PS2 when Final Fantasy XI came out?

Well it clearly says "Development Tool" in this pic (directly below SONY):

Maybe it was used in conjunction with a PS2 dev kit console?

the launch Japanese PS2 does not have a slot for HDD so it uses external HDD
