I have a 200Gb Seagate drive in my SCPH-50004 and its working fine so either PS2 or NA should no be the problem.
Recently i bought a WD3200AAJB 320Gb drive (listed two entries reported as working), brand new sealed in box, stick it up to PS2 and.. tadaa, HDL gives me error hdd not connected, same with DMS HDD Format tool.
With my Seagate drive, first time i used it it HDL asked me to format it, but i bought that used, guess it had windows installed in or something... Now with WD witch is new and unformatted, newer even plugged into a computer so is that the problem?
So is HDL required to have pre formatted drive to detect it or is my WD either doa or simply just not compatible. Reason im asking i cannot connect IDE HDD to my computer since i dont have those in my PC.
Is there reported cases that HDD works in ps2 but cannot format, therefore it should first be formatted with Winhiip before use?
