I have PS2 V9/V10 and MXL2 and network adaptor from SONY shop (only Ethernet socket) and Maxtor 80 GB (DiamondMax9) and Hdloader and Hdadvance both free version.
Installing did not have any problem (hdloader formatted the HD ok).but when I run hdloader (to copy a game to the HD), software asks put you game disk in and then press continue. when I do that, software says? checking your disk?
From this point hdloader freezes. I have tried it with few original game and also I have tried it with Hdadvance, with the same result.
Do I need different hdloader for PS2 V9/V10? I read some where there is V9/V10 compatible version, I did try to find new version, but I couldn?t.
I read alot of posts about ELF and Menu k?, I tried and burned few disks too, but don?t work for me. Maybe I need to learn a lot more, but I like make this thing to work first and then teach the old dog a new trick.
Any comment appreciated
try using winhiip, and put the PS2 HD into the PC to format it and then use it to put games on,
