    First off, I'm a complete newbie to all of this stuff. So please don't bite my head off. Second, I tried looking around for help, but couldn't find anything. If I missed anything, again, please don't bite my head off.

    I just got an HD Loader and the Maxtor hard drive combo from Consolesource.com. I switched it to master, plugged it in, and... "Hardware Error". It can't find the HD. For one, despite my limited knowledge of this stuff, I think it's cracked. It says "FREE" over the HD Loader symbol at the top and says something about "for those that have no respect" underneath it. I have an unmodded, unchipped PS2 that's circa sometime in 2002, and I just want to load the darn thing up and play games.

    Please help.

    Yeah, i think you got the bad version. The original doesn't say free.

    Update: I had my friend, Cosby, come over with his PS2. Both my network adaptor and his load up the Loader on his PS2. So it's my console that's the problem. His is a first run or near-first run PS2, mine is 4 generations newer. (I believe his model number is 35001, and mine is 39001). What gives? Anyway, he was a jerk and wouldn't trade his for mine, but I have another friend (who's a good guy, unlike that Cosby shmuck) who is bringing his first or near-first run PS2 over today and if it works, he'll trade PS2's. I put GTA III on the Loader first to test, and a backup copy of MVP Baseball 2004 to see if backups work on the HD Loader. Both worked terrifically, now I just need a PS2 that will work with it.

    Did you check the Jumper settigns on the hard drive? You should have the jumper on the hd set to master...

    Many hard drives come from the factory set to slave.
