I got the HD advance 2.0 software which allows me to play games from the hard drive, however it doesnt seem to be working with Gran turismo 4. It will load up the initial words that pop up when first starting the game but after that just a black screen. Anyone else have similar problems running GT4 from a hard drive? Id really like to get rid of the massive load times!

Its not going to work for two reasons, HD Advance and HD Loader doesn't work with dual layer games and GT4 is a dual layer disc and because GT4 has a new type of copyright protection that requires the original disc.

Maybe so and yes its dissapointing, I bought HD Loader just for Champions of Norrath and later realized it wouldn't work because its dual layer too, now I'm stuck with a copy of HD Loader that I need to sell.

For a game as big as GT4, a new hack or patch will be available soon to let you play it off the HDD. From the last time I checked, the only way it works is that you keep the original game disk in the drive before you launch GT4 from the HDD. It will load the game from the HDD and access it from the HDD but will check the dvd drive for the copy protection stuff.

Defeats the purpose of getting HD loader to work unless your only need for it was to reduce load times.

Edit: To get it installed on the HDD in the first place, you need to rip it to your PC first, then transfer it to your PS2 HDD using one of the other utils out there.
