Hdl_dump doesnt recognize my formatted seagate 20g, my ps2 yeah and it works fine –
Hi i recently use a downloaded version of hddloader from *urasia.nu* i dont know if i can post a msg linking to other page, i have my original hddloader, but i want to try a backup...
the hddloader version is:
Kiyo HDloader bin/cue (BIG HD)
Description: Free HD Loader Kiyo version in .BIN/.CUE format. This allows a direct boot from CD-R. Contains the original HDLoader images. No longer is it necessary to look at those annoying images from the ownz release. Patched with HDLPatch 0.2c with all features as follows: No disc seek while loading (V9/V10/V11 fix). Copy_right message removed. Stop disc spinning after loading. Bigger game list. Force NTSC on PAL machines. LBA 48bit patch (allows full use of >128GB HDDs).
Version: 20040923 Filesize: 4290811 bytes
20g seagate hd 5400 rpm
Ps2 version 4 ps2 ntsc/uc
Swap magic 3.0 cd version 3.2 usa build
Kiyo HDloader bin/cue (BIG HD)
Then i load the swap magic disc cd version, then i swaped to hdloader that i burned, above are the details, then i formatted the hd, then it rest to me about 16g when formatted, then i copied the one cd game called nhl etc and everything is fine then i played the game and everything is perfect but...
When i placed to the pc, (in master mode with 1 slave dvd rom) then i tried to use hdl_dump and
hdd0: 117239 MB
hdd1: 152625 MB
hdd2: 19092 MB ----- ***PS2 ONE it doesnt shows the ps2 format
cd0: El dispositivo no estÃ¡ listo. (the dispositive is not ready)
cd1: El dispositivo no estÃ¡ listo (same)
so one of the cd is a virtual drive but i cant use the hdl dump i used the promt version, and the gui and same it doesnt detect a ps2 formatted hdd
What should i do
um........... are u sure u formated the hdd to read as hdloader cause if u gonna use the hdd u got to load up hdloader and let it format it then when that is done u can either install a game though network or u can plug into pc i say use network unless u only have 4-5 games well anyways once u have it formated to the ps2 it should auto read if u loaded up hdl dumb or dump because my read auto once i have it plug in though network or not
If you still have it in your PC you can try a couple things..
1) Format the drive as NTFS using Computer Manager/Disk Manager (right click on My Comp, click MANAGE)... Re insert drive into PS2 and format with HDL
2) Use WinHIIP to format drive while drive is in PC... Be careful that you select the rigth drive, or you could severely screw yourself over!!

See u and thanx
i even formatted the hdd to ntfs and then reformatted it to ps2 format (using kiyo patched hdloader, and nuffin the hdd isnt recognized for the pc, and yep for the ps2
I thought I read that the minimum size for hdloader is 40gig, same as the official ps2 hd. Maybe that's the issue.
you can use hard drive smaller than 40gb... I have read that somewhere..
