SMB not seeing games –
I have my slim PS2 connected via crossover to my pc. It was giving me error 300 for a while until I disabled windows firewall. I can ping the ps2, and ps2client goes green for me. OPL .9 does the spinning thing like it's connecting, then stops. BUT, I have no games showing. All of my games are in ISO format. On my E:\ I have a folder named PS2SMB set to share, and inside it CD and DVD folders, with my ISOs in the DVD folder, named with the SLUS_xxx. xx. name. iso. Still nothing showing. Do I have to convert them or is there something I'm missing? Also the spaces are because the forums think I'm posting links.
Also is there a chatroom for this? That would be awesome XD
On a hunch, I popped the isos onto my thumbdrive using the usbutil and it worked off that. I tried using that on my shared drive....still no go.
IP 192.168.0.10 - Pingable
User: GUEST does not work, PS2 neither.
Password: Doesn't work as empty on guest or the pass I made for the PS2 user account.
On my PC we have the following: Win 7 Pro x32
-LAN- Unidentified Network
Use the following IP Address - 192.168.0.2
Windows firewall disabled.
Avast shields disabled.
Folder on E:\ named PS2SMB set to shared. Full control to Everyone and PS2. Tried this with read only control also. No dice.
Made a user account named PS2 with a password.
Plugged the PS2 via crossover (cost me $23 which apparently I coulda saved since my ethernet port likely could tell the difference from what I've been reading XD)
I can ping the PS2.
SMS can see into the folder.
Disabled windows firewall to remove Error 300.
Have files in normal ISO format, renamed to spec by iso2opl. Also tried using the usbutil tool to break them down. Neither is showing.
Have the folder split into DVD and CD, with the iso files in DVD as all are DVD based.
ISOs work fine on thumbdrive, just slow as molasses on FMVs.
Ran wireshark. Seeing a lot of "Echo response" in red. Okay, says echo response, got more info: Header checksum: 0x0000 [incorrect, should be 0x0e11 (may be caused by "IP checksum offload"?)] Wireshark says to ignore this on their forums...
Everything else seems fine to me, but I'm not a networking guru, tinkerer at best.
uLE can see my entire D:\....huh.
Rebooted PC, no luck.
Tried my normal account username/pass, didn't work.
Updated ethernet drivers just because. Didn't help.
Will edit with more info as I find it/think of it.

Would you be able to run Wireshark to capture the network traffic when you press X to start the eth games on Open PS2 Loader, then post the capture file here? I could take a look at it. Also, have you tried using port 139 instead of 445?
It was showing me a TON of stuff, but then I shared my D drive completely and that all went away.
Changing the port just gives me Error 300.
Just restarted it again and got a lot of wtf this time around.
I also tried moving the contents of PS2SMB to the root of D drive and making that the share, still nada.
I looked at the wtfwire capture and something caught my eye...
Take a look at packets 84, 87, 91, 95, 97 in Wireshark. Notice how the PS2 is requesting paths like "\ \THM", "\ \CFG" and in particular "\ \CD", "\ \DVD". Why the spaces?
Can you check your Open PS2 Loader ETH Prefix Path setting? My guess is, it's a space and not blank/empty. Remove the space and try again.
Quoting from http://psx-scene.com/forums/f150/opl...errata-104937/ (OPL 0.9 User Guide Errata):
USB and ETH Prefix Path(s): Not Set (default) Allows you to configure multiple share paths to USB or ETH based devices, and troubleshoot some picky NAS devices that may add a sub-path to a share. This is also useful for people wanting to use the same external USB device either connected on their NAS and accessed through SMB, or directly (in traveler mode) to the PS2. Usually NAS don't allow to share the "root" of the device, so you have to put your games into, let's say a "PS2SMB" folder. When using this same device in USB mode, simply enter "PS2SMB" as USB prefix and you're good. (The prefix is limited to 32 characters)
I thank thee kindly
That was it.
There a way to give a kudos or something on this forum? I was up all night tinkering on that XD
I'm glad that fixed the problem. Um... there's a "Like" link at the bottom of each post if you feel like clicking it, maybe?
