i used winhiip to format my 200gig. then from there on out i used hdl_dump to load the games since it seems to do it a considerable amount faster than winhiip. however, after installing ~30games i tried out winhiip. worked ok at first so i installed like 15 with it. but then i went back to hdl_dump since it supports .imL.
now, everytime i run winhiip 1.6.3 it claims i got a "Bad.Partn" and it wont change.
i booted the ps2 and sure enough, the games marked bad parition do not boot. ive noticed in the options of winhiip that it has a "Reduce Fragmentation" option, which is great to have if its implemented correctly, but is it?
not sure why hdl_dump works flawlessly for me, and winhiip does not. i understand that if winhiip says the partition is bad, it shouldnt work, but is winhiip causing this problem?
also, in future versions of winhiip it seems that it will use the hdl_srvr.elf of hdl_dump. once winhiip utilizes this file, is it likely that winhiip will cause complete corruption, or will it finally work perfectly fine with hdl_dump? They don't seem to like each other now.
