    if your trying to boot a game from a hdd why dont you just launch the appropriate application from the free mcboot main menu unless you didnt add it to your files when modifying your memory card

    The games hanging could be compatability issues not all games are backup compatible if you google it theres many lists out there that tell what is and what isnt, i think the skapps site has one to be honest i cant fully recall though. for your hdloader though what are you using one of the original ps2s? im not real familiar with hdloader i have it on mine but it doesnt work i use a usb external and run it through usbadvn.elf it plays the games right off the hdd but only if they are installed with usbextreme on the computer there may be other ways to install them but thats the only one i have used. best of luck to you

    first thing im going to ask is did you check the compatability list to see if there are any bugs to the emulation, secondly have you looked to make sure that they havent released any patches for the particular game again the site i mentioned earlier is a great sorce of imformation do some more research then come back and let me know what you have found out and i will help you if i can right now thats the only bit of info that i can really give on the subject
