No HDDS are detected by fat PS2
I have recently purchased a Network Adapter for my Fat PS2 (39003), and whilst it runs ok over ethernet (SMB with OPL r455), no HD is detected. I have a fair few spare HDs, ranging in size from 20gb to 250gb, and I have tried them all. Each one I tried with Jumpers set to Master, and then Cable Select. 4 of the HDs were on the HDAdvance Compatibility list as working,too. I have loaded each one with uLe, HDLoader & HDAdvance, to try and detect, and then format them, with no success, yet everyone I tested was definatly powered up, as I could hear them come on, and also they were slightly warm when I removed them.
I'm guessing the IDE block on the Network Adapter must be a dud, but I am no where near experienced with this, so am kind of hoping somebody with more expertise at this, could offer an alternate suggestion. :/
(Not sure if it makes a difference but the Network Adapter i purchased is one with only a single Ethernet port, not Ethernet & 56k Modem port.)
Any ideas would be greatly welcomed, or definitive answers off someone experienced in internal HDs for the PS2, telling me it is definately broken.
Thanks in advance.
