bsod (unable to load any games)
after searching the forums for information related to my situation. Hopefully you guys will be able to provide me some helpful info.
My situation is this:
I have 3 maxtor hard drives. Each drive that i try to load games from refuses to load the games regardless of the way i attempt to load them. I tried loading from the hd loader, loading the games using winhiip, and across the network. regardless of game or hdd they ALL BSOD.
my configuration is as follows:
PS2 taken apart using the cog swap method (ps2 dvd rom tray disassembled and i just place the cog on top of the spindle) previous i had the solderless mod, but it began failing.
the hdd i have are a maxtor 40 gb, a maxtor 7.5 gb and a maxtor 10gb.
using the game shark swap method to boot the hd loader.
Now all 3 drivers were formated NTFS to begin with. Ive attempted to convert to ps2 format using winhipp and hd loader. Ive attempted games that i know work on the hd loader (they work on a friends hd loader). ive tried various modes on all games to get the to work and all i get is the bsod. When i first turn on the ps2 I can hear the hdd coming on but it goes off and doesnt spin when i attempt to load a game.
Is it possible that since all of these drives are formated NTFS that could be my problem? I was also thinking that these drives might be unable to be locked and thats why it isnt functioning. If anyone can shed any light on the situation i would appericiate it.
