Cant access SMB –
After spending several hours trying to access SMB shares in Open PS Loader thought I'd ask for help.I have tried accessing various shares on XP and 7 pcs (domain and workgroup) with no sucess. I have tried multiple different share names with everyone having full permission to the shares and no joy. I can ping the PS2 fine. The folder format in the share is same as USB stick which works fine. I can upload games via the network using HDL Dumb no problems. There is no mac address filtering or anything on the router.
name ps2smb (everyone full control)
folder format CD for cd games DVD for dvd games, all names correctly
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Did you check if your ps2's ethernet port does work?, because i have a similar situation like yours and i ended giving up because the ethernet port of my ps2 seems to be broken, i can't access to any online game, and i have tried several things to try to connect my ps2 to any of my computers, using windows 7 and xp and no success.

I can access the share from other windows pcs \\ip address here\share fine and I can copy stuff to the PS2 hard disk over the network so the network card is working.

Normally when connecting to a pc share you use COMPUTERNAME\username or DOMAIN\USERNAME
I guess another issue is that I have my own dns server though as we are accessing the share by ip address it should not be an issue. I loaded the network access disk and entered all my network settings there too and it seemed to accept them ok.
your PC has a static IP address of 10.56.1.106, but what subnet mask, I think Windows automatically set it to 255.0.0.0, so you should set it the same on the PS2 I think.
On the PS2, for the gateway you could set it to the IP address of your PC (aka 10.56.1.106), not your router.
my share directories contains a few directory, not sure if they are mandatory. Here follow the directories I have:
Also make sure you don't have an USB util files somewhere I think it confuse OPL.
Finally make sure that your iso filename is properly named: <serial>(dot)<a name>(dot)iso like: SCES_517(dot)19(dot)Gran Turismo 4(dot)iso
(dot) stand for . [the forum think I want to post a link]
you can use iso2opl to auto convert the iso filename (you can get it from opl website I think).
Don't know if all that will help but it worth a try.
