I have a ps2 v7 with a magicV chip, network adapter, and maxtor 40gb drive. I used to use the ps2 with the drive over a year ago worked fine but I stopped playing my ps2, so I put the drive back in my PC. Now I'm trying to get it to work again, I formated with DMS1.1 format tool, formated the drive with HDL 0.8b, I even tried to format with Wiihip (full format, used the default settings) and still doesnt seem to be working. What happens is, is that when I go to HDL to transfer a game the estimated time to finish is 140000hours and it says its transfering at 1kb/sec. Now i know the drive is getting power from the adapter, in ulaunchelf u can see the drive no problem and its partitions. I also transfered a game in mode 3 with Wiihip and the game didnt display in HDL 0.8b (non cracked version). Also after I transfered the game, HDL still diplayed the same free/used space as it did before I installed the game on it.
Thanks in advance for any help, hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.
