Other than this utility, and the HD-LOADER CD, what else do I I need (software wise) to use this?
It sounds like I can use this utility to format my HDD, (hooked up to my PC), and then easily install games (I plan on decompressing ISO's prior to use).
(I'm a computer tech, so the logistics are easy to grasp, just making sure I don't rush home, and miss the fact that I need more software....like what's HDL_Dump??? Do I need that too?).
(Sorry for the noob question).
Given that I have an un-modded PS2, the actual purchased version of HD-LOADER, and a drive installed already, can I:
1) Use the HD-Utility (posted here) to install the MC exploit, and make my PS2 MC bootable?
2) Use the HD-Utility (posted here) to install the FTP software for PS2?
(Also, if anyone could point me to a source of the FTP software, that's be awesome).
I'm also getting this error. I've tried the latest version of hdl_dump, but no luck. I've used it several times for several different games, never a problem. I tried it tonight for a new game I got, I'm getting this error. Anyone know how to get around it? I have a 120Gb Samsung with about 30Gb used up.

(At work, we used Ghost on PC's to image Linux and Mac drives for a project).
I execute your HDD Utility, and tried to dump DVD-IMAGE in my PS HDD.
But I use several hdd disk (Now, I use 7 hdd drive in my system).
I setting up PS HDD to 1394 drive rack and I execute HDD utility.
But HDD utility shows only 4 drive.
So I can't dump image to my PS hdd.
Check it please. (If it is possible, if several hdd disk in system, select ps hd independently.)
Thanks in advanced..
Im having a problem with your prog, when trying to add a cd/dvd to the ps2 HDD, i get a runtime error -2147217385 (80041017) Automation Error.
I think its not detecting my dvd/cd rom. Under fixed devices, it lists my HDDs, but under optical devices it lists my ps2 HDD for cd0 cd1 and cd2. Is there a way to fix this??? Thanks for the help in advance.
This looks bloody brilliant. Seems to be a lot easier to use than the original prog, haven't tried it myself yet though . Just a quick question:
Can this program work with the HD being placed in a IDE to USB removable HD cases? The ones that you put the HD in the case and hook up to the computer via USB 2.0? I really don't feel like opening my computer constantly to put and take out the HD (Dorm room is pretty small as it is, not much room to move around and all). Damn I hope most of the bugs are gone or I don't encounter any! Great Job TheDecline!
Also does this program also transfer the games to the PC? or is it only from the PC to PS2?
