Problems with slim PS2 USB HDD setup
Problems with slim PS2 USB HDD setup –
I recently managed to install FMCB, Open PS2 Loader, uLaunchELF and a couple other things onto my PS2 MC. Now it loads into Free MC Boot beautifully every time I turn on the system.
Thing of it is, I can't seem to be able to use my USB HDD with it.
Originally I thought it was merely due to it being too damn big (it's a 1TB), but when formatted in FAT32, USBAdvance manages to notice it, but won't let me format it. Open PS2 Loader doesn't seem to be able to load it, regardless of whether I formatted it with WinHIIP's HDLoader 48 or Toxic OS formats. And when it's plugged into the system at startup, FMCB never finishes loading. I'm stuck at the titular screen indefinitely.
Obviously either I'm doing something horribly wrong, or there's some kind of incompatibility issue...?
The HDD is a Seagate GoFlex 1TB Ultra-Portable drive [maybe it's not getting enough power?] and the ps2 is a v14 [I remember the number being 75001 but I can't recall the four letters before it.]
Can anyone help me out? I really don't mean to bother you guys, but it's been several days since I started this whole process, and it's getting ridiculous.
It must be FAT32 only no WinHIIP that is for internal HD
V10 SCPH-50001 with Network adapter SCPH-10281 500 G HD
PSP 3000 9G 6.20 PRO CFW Perm
Unofficial FMCB v1.8C OPL self compiled HD and SMB preferred
Is how all good gaming systems came to be
Okay, I'll try that out. Updates soon.
Update: Seems the problem of not loading persists despite the new format of FAT32.

Reason: New info
Your device is not compatible, or there is still something wrong with the filesystem on it.

You might want to try this too, since it's tuned for the usage of USB devices: http://psx-scene.com/forums/f253/pla...ps2esdl-63375/ (Playstation 2 External Storage Device games Loader (PS2ESDL))
As with OPL, game files have to be 100% defragmented. Please use a good disk defragmenter like the Auslogics Disk Defragmenter.
Unmodified SCPH-77006 with SM 3.6
SCPH-39006 with M-chip modchip, SCPH-10281 NA and refurb Seagate 80GB HDD
SCPH-10000 v1.00 with SCPH-10190 PCMCIA NA and SCPH-20400 HDD unit
Got it. I'll check on the compatibility list and see if there's anything on there I can afford.
