    I decided to upgrade my Phat PS2's HDD from my old 1tb and thought an SSD would be a good idea. I got a SANDISK Ultra 3D 2TB SATA SSD which I thought should be compatible just fine.

    I used Raw Copy HDD to copy the 1tb old drive into the new 2tb drive, as well as add additional games. When I plugged it to my PS2 (via the maxdiypower adapter I got eons ago), it was working fine. I loaded up a game just to test it out on OPL and then exited back to the browser. When I booted up OPL for the second time, the harddrive was not recognized as I was getting the error 221 message.

    Now a few details that might help:

    • I am using the newest OPL v.1
    • I tested the old 1tb HDD again to see if it's the issue of the SATA adapter, it isn't.
    • I inserted the new 2tb SSD to my computer to see if maybe something got corrupted and it cannot be recognized. But no, the computer is able to recognize the drive using PS2 HD Handiness 0.75 which is the only GUI software I can use since HDL Dump Helper GUI has been a pain in the butt.
    So at this point I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Is the SSD not compatible even though it worked at the beginning? Is there a general SSD support issue I am not aware of? Do I need a better adapter?

    Any help will be very appreciated.

    Was your previous drive an ssd as well? I know that there is a jumper on the hdd that must be set to master, but I’m not sure if that’s a requirement of the original network adapter (which you don’t have, so may not be valid here) or ssd drives are smart enough to know their role.

    As far as I know, this is only a concern for the old PATA/IDE drives, so no need to consider this with SATA drives (i.e. both HDDs and SSDs)

    Oh damn, you are right! SATA drives dont have jumpers. Sorry. I am awake now.

    I would try setting up the SSD from scratch instead of restoring the old drive to it.
