Hi. I know this might seem like a dumb question, so please bare with me. I've got a softmodded (ps1 disc exploit) PS2, model SCPH-39001/N (NTSC-U). I've also got a non-sony 40gb hdd installed in it, and have a modem/ethernet broadband connector on it. I know that with the sony hdd's, you can boot into the browser and it shows the hdd in there, and you can manage game saves and stuff. Is there any way of doing the same thing, but using a non-sony branded hdd instead? I'm already able to play games and elf files off the hdd, so that's not a problem. I tried using a HDD Utility Disc that I downloaded off the net somewhere, but aparantly it'd only work for a sony branded hdd.
I dunno if this helps, but this is my PS2's version information:
CD Player: 1.20
Playstation Driver: 1.10
DVD Player: 2.12U
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
