Ok this may have been dicussed before, but I used the search function and all I could find was some thing about running the hd loader off the memory card (not what I wanted) What I want to do is run hdl dump (or some other program) and sent my files over my network to my ps2. So I downloaded hdl_dumb 0.7.3 Windows GUI build (is that the right one for windows XP??) And I see that there are some numbers where it says networking server, at: and then it has some numbers. Are these just default numbers or is that my ps2's ip adress? For some reason when I click attach it takes like 20 seconds and then comes up with a window that says: "A connection attempt failed because the connected part did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond." Should I have any specific disk in my ps2 when trying this? (yes my ps2 is on with no disc in it) Is there anyway to find out my ps2's ip adress? Finally, what are the compatibility flags for? How do I know when to use them? I'm a but confused here...Thanks.
