Okay, I have bought an official PAL copy of Monster Hunter Tri, and, like all my games, I want to be able to run it from HDD, due to faster loading times and convinience. If I try to 'rip' the game, it starts ripping and freezes fairly soon into the process, usually at 0.13% or 0.24% and I have to hard reset the console. The hard drive works perfectly and I have ripped numerous other games without a single problem. Does it have some sort of protection? I find it stupid that I might to download another image of the game to install it, when i have my own official copy of the game. Any help would be appreciated. EDIT: I tried ripping it with an alternative loader (uLoader) which uses another CIOS, and now it seems to be working. So I guess there is some kind of protection. I will let you know once it rips if my problem is solved, so i can close this topic. If it is not, I shall ask for advice.
