zero-x : I too found the same thing taht adavidm had. Exceot mine is the other way around. If I plug in my drive after the ps2 loads (to any point), it is useless. However if the drive is plugged in before, then all is well. I use ps2mp3, launchelf (newest) as my usb proggies, and they work fine. Not sure why when they first worked, they wont work now though. I don't know if this would affect it or not, but have you done anything internally to the ps2? (mod or otherwise) Good luck man. Crap like that can be frustrating. I'm still trying to get my drive to work with pgen.
