    Hi Guys, this my first post on psx scene with very big hope. I have ps2 fat and i m using opl 0.8 to boot ps2 games from hdd via usb. Games running fine but when I plug usb cable of my hdd enclosure into ps2 usb port the display on my tv show some wavy & noisy lines. this will only happen when I plugged usb cable into ps2 otherwise display is smooth and clear. What wrong with it? does any one experience such thing before? I really thankful if anybody have any solution for this problem as my usb games doesnt display clearly. I use my usb stick to play videos from it to check if any usb port have any hardware prob but its work perfectly with clear display it on occurs when I plugged my hdd to play games. Awaiting for quick reply. Thanks again.

    If you use HDD 3.5 box, the external power may cause of your problem

    he means does the external usb hdd your using have its own cable or is it powered through the usb? even if not then it seems to me you need to get a diff external enclosure if its not your usb in the ps2 doing it..or your just pulling to much power with all that stuff plugged in at once and you need to find another wall outlet

    I think you can grounded your HDD external enclosure.
