Having a hard time =[ –
Hey, so I was looking around and while I love ESR I'm out of dvds and found out I had a old hard drive lying around...so I hooked up the sucker to my ps2 and formatted it with hdloader and such. Now my only problem is getting stuff on it. I don't know how to get movies/music/games onto the hard drive and I tried using hddump but it has some problems with Vista and I've tried using hddumb but it says it cannot detect my ps2. I have HDLD up and it says ready and such but still no luck. Can someone please tell me where I'm screwing up?
well you cannot use WinHIIP and HDL-Dump for copying music or movies to the HDD .they are only for installing ISO .Like Games..
you can use PS2Client Loader with uLaunchELF (Host) Feature ..
here is the guide :http://www.console-exploits.com/foru...ad.php?t=10740
so how would I go about installing games since dumb if failing at connecting to my pc? can I just do it manually with the ftp?
Installing games for use with HDLoader can only be done with programs specifically made for that purpose, so regular FTP will not work. The main reason for this is that HDLoader games are not stored as normal files. Instead a separate HDD partition is created for each installed game disc.

3: HDL_Dump can install ISOs to a PS2 HDD in the same way as WinHiip, or by sending the data over network, for installation on the PS2 HDD by the hdld_svr elf program.
You need to find out why the connection fails, as a real connection failure should affect all similar connections. The hdld_svr server program uses the same network setup as does uLaunchELF and SMS, so if that setup is wrong then networking will fail in all those programs, not just in one of them. So if you have normal FTP working, this indicates that the HDL_Dump problem lies at the PC end of the connection. Possibly you have configured the HDL_Dump GUI (HDL_Dumb was it ?) incorrectly, or have some firewall active that blocks the traffic. And since you are using Vista (which I don't) you may also need to set up the programs to be run in XP compatibility mode.
Installing other things than HDLoader games in normal file partitions on the PS2 HDD can be done in many different ways, including regular FTP like you mentioned. But the quickest method is to run PS2ClientLoader+ps2client or RadHostClient on the PC, and then use the FileBrowser of uLE to copy stuff from the "host:" device (showing PC shares) to the normal file partitions of your PS2 HDD.

Thanks a lot, I suppose I'll give it a shot from my windows XP computer. Curse Vista...I love it but it's constantly raping any fun I have.
