i got really bored this week so i decided to spend a good amount of money on things that i could use to mod my ps2. everything seems to work except for the network adapter. i tried it out every way i could but nothing seems to work... i can see marks of the person who had it before me and that they tried to clean it... im rather pissed off that i waited all this time for this stupid adapter and it doesn't work... i am posting here to see if there is a certain step a may have missed.

IDE or SATA? I had to set the jumper on my IDE drive in order for my PS2 to see it. Also, which app are you trying it with? Open PS2 Loader or HD Loader?

Your drive won't work out of the box, it has to be formatted properly for the PS2 to even recognize it. Even then, the PS2 won't utilize the extra storage without homebrew.

That's normal, if you're not accessing the disk the PS2 won't spin it up. You'll need a way to format it. Either by hooking it up to your computer or using HD Loader on your PS2 after softmodding it.[/QUOTEthe hard drive is spiinning up and it have it connected to my pc but the drive is not showing up and the IDE drive seems to shutoff after a few mins
