Thanks in advance to any help ... I'm going insane with this. Here is my setup: PS2 (of course!) Max Drive software w/ USB pen drive (I have the 16MB Max, but I've been using my 128MB) 120GB HDD (thus far unformated; out of the box) $ony Ethernet/Modem adaptor $ony brand MC PS1 Game: The Dukes of Hazzard: Racing For Home (SLUS_008.59) PS1 Game: The Dukes of Hazzard II: Daisy Dukes It Out (SLUS_012.43) *** Neither of these games are on any of the title.db lists *** Okay, I've seriously tried EVERYTHING that I can gather from these pages and all of the links that I've found from them, only to not get this working. So far, almost everything I've tried has resulted in the Dukes games booting normally, exept for one method, in where I receive a black screen -- but only with the first Dukes game, as the second will always boot normally. The way I am getting the black screen is that I added the above SLUS's to the title.db file within TITLE#5 from one of the sites (seriously, I can't remember ... my brain is fried!). PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ... can someone please let me know what I have to do, and the order it has to be done, using the equiptment I have listed above??? I really hate to ask this, but I have seriously been at this all weekend with no results. I've read so many threads that they are all combining into one and I think it's hurting rather than helping. I'm sure there are others out there with my same situation. Please note that I have an NTSC (US) PS2. Some other questions: * Do I need to have a swap card to flip the little pin on the PS2 tray with this Max Drive MC Exploit? * Do I need to get the AR Max Evo instead? The Max Drive software only has MC Management, and no Media Player. * Do I ever even need to burn any CDs to add exploits to the MC or HDD? * Also, I've been deleting the System Config files from my MC before adding the new ones in Max Drive. Then I transfer the .max file to the MC (un-crushed, of course). However, after attempting my failed-boots, I end up with a second System Config file of about 5K that (I think) the PS2 is creating. Should this be deleted or saved along with my created file? I've tried both. Thank you again for your help!!!!!!!
