well i lost 30 games today
the only advice i have is to never use winhiip, it fails your hdd if you ever used another apps before like hdldump/b or ps2hddutil, wich i strongly recommand, as i never have a problem with this one...
for your problem, you can try the latest winhiip version, at your own risk, it may or may not work, or erase more games...
Agreed. As soon as you mentioned "WinHIIP" in this post, I knew it was the culprit yet again. I don't mean to offend the author, but let's face the facts: WinHIIP is a lot less stable and a lot more likely to **** up than HDL_Dump/b.
I'd love to see the authors of WinHIIP and HDL_Dump cooperate on bringing the best tool to the scene, because in this state, it only messes up people's harddrives on a frequent basis.
I lost 78 games so don't feel bad but that was because my HDD died. I never had a problem with WinHIIP but then again its the only program I have used for my HDD. The only prob I hever had was the bug that messed up games over 4 gig and that was easily fixed by reinstalling the games with the new version
Just out of curiousity.....
Does winhiip support copying non-flattened dvd-9 images? I'm in the midst of using dvd decrypter to create the iso and using hdld_svr and hdl_dumb (version 0.8.1) to transfer it to my hdd. Apparently this allows the transfer of the image in DVD9 format without any patching (soon to be confirmed). I know HD Handiness does not support this, does winhiip? And, if there are crazy rules here as well about mentioning certain software, blah blah blah, I can't keep track anymore.....I apologize. Not a big fan of politics.

Hahaha same happened to me i lost all my good games cos i told winhiip to fix my partition errors omg how i regret doing that i had to start again on my whole ps2 drive after that because of hdl dumb not even reading the drive i could only install the games via hdloader which sucked really anyway all is good now and im not going to use winhiip again it can really ruin your images i lost over 70 games but luckly most of them were backed up
i feel your pain... one of my 80 gigers died last week, forcing me to boot the computer with knoppix since i lost my OS and programs.
Again - no offense to the author of Winhiip, he's obviously put in a lot of hard work to the prog, but it f##ks people's HDs on a regular basis.
The first time I used it it listed a bunch of working games as bad partitions, and just deleted them without a prompt or anything.
That was the latest version a month ago or so. I'll never use it again.
I've never gotten any bad partitions with WinHIIP, the day I stopped using HDL Dump.
