    So I have got the infamous hardware error on hdloader. I have tried multiple versions, and all give the same thing. I tried OPL and it just doesnt show any games.

    There are quite a lots of threads on the web about this problem but no-one has mentioned the sound the hdd makes. I don't know whether it doesn't happen or they just dont mention it. Anyway, when I open hdloader the hdd beeps, then makes a sort of crackling noise. You know that noise that hdds make all the time when they are doing something. Then the error appears.

    I have tried many many times to reconnect the adapter with no luck. I did get the error before and I reconnected and it worked. It worked for ages. I put new games on it and now it just wont.

    Sometimes after I reconnect it, it will take a little longer for the error to appear. I have no idea why.

    I don't think the jumper is the problem, although I am gunna buy one to test it. I have a bit of wire connecting the two pins of 'cs enabled', the one I was told worked. And it was working before... it is pretty ghetto so I will see if a legit jumper makes any difference.

    Any advice or possible reasons for the hardware error? This is seriously fucking me off.

    Edit: Another thing I can't find anything about is, after I get the error, I hit the reset button. It turns yellow and when I hit it again it goes green, and turns on. Dunno if that means anything.
