I'm hoping to avoid pulling my hdd out every time I want to install a new game. My hdd is properly formatted and recognized by both OPL and HD Loader. I haven't had any luck playing burned games (hoping I could install them through the PS2 itself like the Wii can) or using HDL Dump. Also running a network cable to my router is a last resort. If I get a crossover cable will the drive finally just show up in Winhiip or am I missing something? Possibly an IP address for the PS2 in a cofig file somewhere? When it comes to the PS2 I am just starting out. I'm using FMCB 1.8 fyi.
