I have a scph 39001 with a free mcboot card. I have installed a sata adapter and tried multiple hard drives. The problem I am having is that when I format the drives (either in winhiip or Ulaunch) the folders will appear but the instant I open opl or hdl the contents of the drive are gone. In fact for HDL it just keeps telling me to format the drive. Any help is appreciated

If the SATA adapter was an upgraded official Sony adapter then check the ribbon cable. In fact even if it isn’t an official Sony adapter, open it up and reseat any ribbon cables. If that does not fix anything then you need to invest in a new adapter (the official one; and buy a SATA kit for it). Make sure to always completely power off the console (unplug it) So you don’t blow any fuses when removing or installing the HDD.
