yes, all my games seem to freeze when loaded from the hdd. my setup is a v7 ps2 no mod just network adapter and HDA2.0. I am using a 200GB maxtor hdd.
I originally got the hdd, ps2 formatted it with win hiip 1.6.5, quick erase and then loaded some iso images of my games. I then inserted into my ps2 booted up with the retail disc and all the games seem to freeze no more than 5 mins into the game. I am enabling the right modes for the games as per notes on the official HDA website and other websites, ex. mode 3 for WWE smackdown vs raw, but they all freeze.
anyone got a clue what im doing wrong here, this sucks!!
