So today my fat ps2 with network adaptor suddenly cant read my 700GB Seagate IDE HDD.
My laptop can read the HDD using an IDE to USB cable.
My desktop can read the HDD using the IDE cable master/slave.
I use Winhiip on both desktop and my laptop to read the HDD and it works perfectly.
But my ps2 cant read it properly.
I did a quick and partial format after I backup all my games to my external and no luck.
Now im doing a full format which take 15hours using my laptop.
I tried an 80GB HDD on my ps2 to know if the problem is my network adapter but my ps2 can read it.
What do you think is my HDD problem?is it bad sectors?hope it work again after the full format i made.BTW what is the difference in quick,partial and full format?what I mean is what exactly those format do besides the speed(quick=fast,partial=30mins,full=15hours for me).Do full format repair bad sectors?.If full format will not work I will try generating bad sectors if any which will take 1 and half days on my HDD. =(
