V12 HD Connect HDD Detection Issue
I have installed the HD Connect kit in my V12 PS2 and checked all of the connections with my multimeter to make sure that all of the connections are good. I am using swap magic V3.3 with a cd copy of hdloader v0.7c. When hdloader boots it cannot detect the hard drive. I tried using a 10" round IDE cable and the short flat cable that was included in the kit., but neither worked. I also checked the connections between the pins in the IDE connecter and the ribbons connected to the main board. So my question is, do I need to format the harddrive with my pc before I use it with the ps2? Also will hdloader work when booted with swap magic v3.3?
