How to use unofficial HDD in fat ps2 with openps2loader after being formatted with HDLoader?
I have a fat ps2 model SCPH-39001 that is soft-modded with FMCB and has a Seagate ST340015A 40 gig hdd in it. I used HDLoader to format the hard drive and it runs great. Games installed straight from the disc and ones installed using hdl_dump and hdl_dumb work flawless. However, I've read in many places that OpenPs2Loader is an all around better program to use when running games from a hard drive. I downloaded the .elf and opened it and everything, but for whatever reason, openps2loader doesn't detect my hard drive. I hear it spin up so i know its working, but it doesn't detect any games or let me do anything with the hard drive. If formatting is necessary, I'm willing to do so, but it will have to be through the PS2 itself as I do not have the equipment needed to connect it to a computer. Any help on this would be appreciated and thanks in advance.
