Ok, so i have hdloader working and it boots in seeing all of my 200gig drive. I formatted the drive using DMS formatting tool v1.0.
So when it boots into hdloader and i try to "convert" a game, it askes for a name and i give it one. It then just sits there at the "please wait installing program" and goes no further.
I did a search on these forums to see if other people had the problem but i got nill.
hmm i never heard of that problem before...i dont know how to help u but, make sure ur Network adapter isnt screwed on too tight...or try screwing it in alittle....
never heard that problem before but youd best to just dump the programs through your pc. faster, more stable, and you wont get read errors.
yea, i have been having all sorts of problems with it...
I finally got some games backed up and then i tried to backup manhunt, when it was done it said there was nothing on the harddrive.... and then it stoped booting in hdloader without giving any errors.....
Dude is right, dont bother ripping through HDA/HDL, takes like 20 mins. Just remove the ps2 hdd and put it into your PC (or an external HDD enclosure to your pc)
Then use the local side of HDL_DUMB GUI to install the game, around 10x faster than ripping the disc and works every time (or at least it has for the last 40 or so games ive tried)
Also dont forget to check out if the game need compatability modes (can be aded when installing throutgh HDL_DUMB or can be turned on my highlighting the game in HDA and pressing SELECT)
www.ps2hd.com is the best list i found so far
