emperor thx for the quick reply. I use WinHIP to format the HD and it work and also able to transfer a game to the HD using WinHIP. However I can't get it to work with the free HD Loader, it will just freeze at the free HD loader screen. I tried to boot the PS2 without the HD attached to the PS2 and free HD loader loads up fine, it give me a message no HD found.
I guess the free HD loader don't work or it is because I have Japanese version of PS2 (modded).
Beside Ebay where else I can get a real copy of HD loader?
