OK I bought a 120HHD Maxtor, Adaptor, HD Advance from consolesource.com. Installed (converted) games (only one at a time otherwise it doesn't work). Was playing a game right after I had converted it. Played for about 30 minutes then ....boom. Total shutdown with the power button blinking red. When it blinks red, you can't manual reset and you have to turn on/off from the back of the PS2. Really frustrating since I hadn't been saving. Is this normal? Whats going on? I thought it mgiht have to do with the fact that I have the v.1 30001 PS2. Also when I play games via HD Advance and reset. I have to reset twice to have a true reset. Is this normal? Also whats all this about master/slave? Maybe I have to check with my preferences to make sure the NA is the master right? Also whats with all the talk about HD Loader? HD Advance converts imports and backups so it should be more "advanced" right? Sounds like HD Loader is for people who want free-ware and don't want to pay for the software. Anyway, any response would be greatly appreciated?
