Feel like iv tried every thing. Not sure if OK to post. Hoe so it's my first and have been looking for way to get winhiip to recognize my hdd. It's a 400gb need it formatted in 48bit mode. The ps2 accepts it just fine and will format it.. iv moved jumpers removed jumpers. Feel like iv tried it all. Using win 10 had tried 8.1 also. If my ps2 recognizes it why don't the winhiip. Iv followed all I can to try and not ask directly so would really appreciate not be in told look at this forum or that one directly anyway. Just feel stuck.also iv tried different modes of connection. I'm aware of the 12v and 5 v difference and have recently bought a sabrent hdd adapter thinking it would alleviate any fault on connection and power.
