I have HD Loader running on my NTSC-J PS2, however I have PAL games I'd like to run. This system has no modchip, and HDLoader will not accept PAL games to install. Instead I have to make disc images of my games and install them through Winhipp. PAL games run and launch just fine on the system with imaged so, my gathering is that the DVD-Reader is region locked? Is it possible to install other region games straight from the PS2 at all? At the moment I can't see it possible, but someone with knowledge of the PS2 (which I lack) might know.
