HDD not working with network adapter?
hi, I just recently recieved a new network adapter and it works great with a spare 40GB HDD that I had, but it refuses to detect my main 750GB Seagate HDD. I mean, I can hear it spin up like it normally would, and hear the sound of the PS2 attempting to access it, but that sound just goes on forever and never ends. this would happen for example in uLE if I attempt to load the HDD drivers (by simply attempting to access "hdd0" or attempting to start the HDD manager), or use OPL. the drive works perfectly with the adapter that I already had used it with all this time ("old" adapter), so I know that it's certainly not the drive.
in case it helps, the PS2 is an SCPH-30004 (v3). the "new" network adapter has the same product code as my old one, which is SCPH-10350. what could be going on here?
any help or insight would be appreciated. thank you.
