HDD recognize problem but not network adapter
HDD recognize problem but not network adapter –
Hi, I tried to attach a maxtor 80 giga hard disk on my ps2, making all steps rightly (I think) but I received with every kind of loader (advance, free ,0.8...) the error message it can't be recognized. Winhiip give me no problems on pc...
So I suspected it was the hard disk, but tried on another Ps2 with another net adapt and worked fine...
So I suspected was my net adapt, but I can play online...
Now I have to try to change the ps2 but using the same net adap.
If it works, could it finally be the ps2 itself that can't load hdd no more?
Before this I used successfull (time ago) a maxtor 20 giga with the same net adapt...
PS : in the meanwhile I used SMS player with external usb HD.
Thanks a lot
Someone else posted a similar issue here, but seems they haven't found a solution yet. I had the same problem, but it was due to a blown ps10 fuse. You can read about it here.
Hardware: PS2 v7 (GH-022) NTSC | Crystal Chip 2.0 Pro SLE | Sony Network Adapter | 300GB Segate HDD
Software: uLaunchELF 4.40 | HDLoader 0.8c | HDL_Dump 0.8.6+GUI | SMS 2.9 (Rev.3)
My Projects: uLaunchELF - skins/template | skin template readme | documentation (contributor)
First of all thanks for answering.
I think and hope it's something different from a fuse cause no electrical problem I think happened and nothing fried...
I forgot to say I have a v3 or v4 PS2 model.
Could It be something happened after connecting my external (power supplied) hd usb to play divx with sms ?
PS: I tested my network adapter on another ps2 with another hd and worked...
So there is a problem with my ps2.
The strange thing is that it seems not to bot in hard disk mode.
