Help!: Why wont WINHIIP or PS2 Handiness read my drive?
Help!: Why wont WINHIIP or PS2 Handiness read my drive? –
I have a 200gb Maxtor. Everything was working fine two days ago, kind of. Last week I passed the 127 gb mark on my hard drive. I tried to install a game via WINHIIP and it said I had run out of space. I tried with Handiness and it worked, so I was cool, I just preferred WINHIIP but oh well.
This morning I tried to make another partition on my HDD with the DMS Format Tool and the PS2 froze up on me. I reset the PS2 to find all of my created partitions [PGEN and MC Backup] were deleted. I lost all my saves. Pretty pissed, but oh well at least my games werent deleted, right? Well today I wanted to burn ESPN NFL 2k5. Since my copy wasnt read by my PS2, I figured I might as well put it on via Handiness. Extracted the iso, opened up Handiness and BAM, it showed up as blank [no games on it] I got pretty pissed. At this point, I was s**tting bricks, I hurried to put my HD back in the PS2 and found all my games were still on the HD. Sigh of Relief. So I tried putting it back in my PC but it still doesnt read it. I tried WINHIIP, HDL_Dumb [got an error saying I had a partition past the 127 GB mark], and Handiness all to no avail.
Can anyone help me? Im desperate. . .
Is there any other program that will read and let me install games to the HD through the PC? Please . . . . .
you are not suppose to switch programs like that
... feel bad that you didnt know that but thier is probaby nothing you can do... Try data recoverory software
Nothing went wrong when I did that though. And I still have all my games on the hard drive. It only happened when I used the DMS tool. Could it have been because I didnt use the 48 bit version?
why dont you just delete some games off it and go below the damn 127gb mark?
Because then whats the point of paying an extra $30 and not being able to use it? Theres no reason I should have to do that. Anyway, I guess I figured it out. I had to install the DMS 48 bit tool and delete the partitions made by the regular tool. When I used the 48 bit it read them as regular ones. I deleted them and connected it to my pc and it worked fine again.
