Need Help - Multi partition HD on OPL
Different versions of the USB drivers scan for partitions in different ways. All versions of USBA/USBX will use ONLY the first partition found, as will OPL, but due to the different drivers this may or may not be the same partition.

(it happens randomly when i remove USB HD and reinsert it 4 or 5 times or restart ps2 and boot USB xtreme sometimes no luck).
Like I said above, this 'ability' is really a bug, as it means that partition recognition for USBX is inconsistent between sessions.
It means i can play OPL partition games on USB xtreme
And this 'inability' is how it should be, as it means that partition recognition for OPL is consistent between sessions.
but i can't play games of USB xtreme partition on OPL.
is there any why i can use both partition on Open ps2 loader.
OPL follows the USBA standard of demanding that the first partition found should contain the games.
Some software such as uLE can address multiple partitions of the same drive, as "mass:", "mass1:", "mass2:" etc. But that is a very unusual ability among PS2 homebrews. OPL certainly does not have it, and while it could easily be added to the GUI, doing it for the ingame core drivers might not even be possible, due to the resulting growth of the IOP module causing game incompatibilities.
