First off I'd like to say hi .. I'm new to this whole ps2 modding thing. I've been reading up the past couple of weeks, mostly on these forums. Anyways, i finally decided to order a set of swap discs (swap magic 3.6) and a slide card. I've been having nothing but problems since i started messing with this. The problem i have run into right now is installing games to the hard drive with HD Loader 0.8B I click install, put in a game, click continue, name it, usual process one would take i would imagine. Game says it has installed, yet it is not on the HD Loader list. When i reset the ps2, it asks me to format the hard drive. This is driving me insane. I tried hooking the hard drive up to a spare computer, and set the jumper to slave, installed images with winhiip, and it still tells me to format the hard drive when i stick it back in the ps2 and load up hdloader. current setup: PS2: v7 Swap Magic 3.6 discs HDD: 40GB Western Digital WD400 HDLoader 0.8B (burned copy, loading hdloader via swap magic[is this a problem?]) if anyone has suggestions, they would be more than welcome, although i'd like to get winhiip working so i dont have to wait forever for a disc to install, installing directly from the PC seems a lot faster.
