I'm at a loss here... Cant connect to my PS2 from PC using hdld_Svr
I'm at a loss here... Cant connect to my PS2 from PC using hdld_Svr –
I'm at the boiling point with my PS2. I just can't seem to connect to my PS2 using HDL Dump helper Gui or HDL Dump gui 1.5. With the helper gui when I try to connect I just get an error that states "Failed to connect to networking sever on IP". whereas the other one just sits there and doesn't do anything. Now here is the thing, When I start my PS2 and use PS2net I can connect just fine using flash fxp or filemanager. I'ts just when I use hdld_svr and try to connect through there I get that error. I tried everything, I changed my IPCONFIG file, I got rid of hdld_svr and got a new one, changed my ip address around, got rid of both HDL Dump helper and HDL Dump gui and re installed them and I still get the same error. Any help would be appreciated thanks!
Sorry to tell you bro HDL Dumb is an non-reliable alternative to WinHiip. I know the latter doesn't support transferring game images to the HDD inside the PS2, but I've had HDL Dumb *accidentally* delete the partition to my drive 3 times before I sought out the authors who then banned me from their IRC chatroom due to the fact they accused me of "making it up", but after some research I found there is an intentional *bug* to destroy HDD's that were previously used with WinHiip (there was fierce competition at the time) within the HDL Dumb code.
Anyway, you've got a networking issue most likely related to your version of Windows and/or your NIC or Router configuration(s). I highly doubt the app works with 64-bit OS's (don't quote me on that) and the networking is probably coded differently. Your best bet is to hookup the IDE drive to a spare IDE channel (yes, open your computer, plug it in, etc ...) and run WinHiip under "Administrative" permissions. If you do not have an IDE controller card and connectors you can buy a cheap DMA/133 for $20.00 for a PCI or PCiEx1 slot at most local computer stores and online.
Lastly, even if you skip my advice and get it to work it will take almost 8 hours to copy over a 3GB game. Have fun!
First off thanks for your quick reply I do appreciate it. A couple of things, one, What you said in your first paragraph had led me to my suspicions that I would probably have to use Winhiip to transfer any games to my PS2. I just remembered that this has happened before and I used winhiip to fix it. (one of the Partitions was messed up). Second, I have copied numerous PS2 games before and it never took me 8 hours and you said it would. Granted, it does take a lot longer than if I used winhiip, but It never took a whole day, usually 45 minutes to a hour for me. The most it took for me to copy a game was about two and a half hours and that was when I was copying a 7 gb game. Its been years since I last done it (about 5 years now) and I found my old PS2 and just tried to see if I could connect to it again. But since it looks like I'm going to need to use winhiip and my PC doesn't have an IDE Controller card (That and I'm too cheap to pick up one) I guess I'm out of luck for now until I can get to a friend's house comptuer to hook up my HDD to. Once again thanks!

You must start first in uLE "PS2Net", and when itīs return to main, start "hdld_svr_v0_9"....
I use "hdl_dumx-0.8.3 and 0.9.1" and "hdl_dump_helper_gui_2.2". I donīt formatted *accidently* my HDD.....
I just wanted to let everyone know is that I did figure it out. I decided to try out winhiip on my friends older computer and sure enough, there was some damaged partitions within the Haarddrive. After using the scan/repair function on winhiip to fix the damaged partitions, I went ahead and connected my HDD to see if it would connect and it worked like a charm. I just wanted to say thanks for everyone who replied to my post.
