on V9 and V10 you need a laser "skull" with the slide arm installed to touch the limit switch when you turn the PS2 on. If it doesn't have something hit that switch the drive will report to HDLoader that it's checking for a disc even if it has given up already. Then HDL keeps waiting for the drive to say "there's no disc on the drive" but it will never happen. Put a laser skull with the parts, disconnect the burnt part of the LA chip (lift the pin used for romeo mod and leave unconnected) then the slide motor will work even if the LA is blown. That should fix your problem with HDL on V9/V10
