Xploder & HDloader –
yesterday I bought HDLoader but my PS2 did not recognize it as an
playstation disk ('please insert a ps or ps2 format disk').
To check whether my PS2 could actually still read CD's I inserted
the Xploder cheat disk into my PS2. It loaded fine (with the 'scotch tape
trick'). When it prompted me to insert a game I inserted the HDloader disk
and it loaded fine (with some noise). I tried it a few more times and my
if I insert HDLoader directly into the PS2 the PS2 does not recognize it.
If I insert HDLoader through XPloder cheat system it loads fine !
Could anyone explain this behaviour ? Does the Xploder software use an
alternative way to load CD's as oposed to the PS2 firmware (?) ?
Moreover, does this behaviour help in diagnosing the problem which I have
using the HDLoader CD directly (I mean, the lens should be fine, otherwise it wouldn't load through Xploder also, right ?)?
Thanx for any suggestions
Are you using an NTSC version on a PAL PS2 without a modchip? If so, it's not going to boot on it's own due to regional protection.
I checked the label and it says PAL, so that should be allright.
