A few days ago, I got a DTL-30001 TEST PS2 from a friend. To my surprise, it came with a network adaptor and a 60gb hdd. I've read that there is an exploit that can be done that installs files to the BADATA portion of the memory card and triggers a buffer overflow when a ps1 disc is inserted, booting some kind of hdd-OS. I spent all day googling, making ISOs, master disc patching ISOS, burning cds, burning dvds, taking apart a retail PS2, taking apart the TEST, etc, etc. Nothing I do seems to allow me to manipulate my memory card to enable playing from the hdd. - I have swap magic 3.6. my retail ps2 only can read the dvd disc. the test can read both the dvd and cd discs, but requires that I remove the top cover of the machine beforehand to perform the swap. (however, thinking about it now, I shouldn't even need the swap magic with the test. It just shows you how confused I am at the moment) - I do not own an action replay. - I do not own a mod chipped ps2. - I do own a Test. - I do have an official Sony memcard, network adaptor, and compatible 60gb hdd Can anyone with some experience point me in the right direction, given the tools that I have? I tried searching first, but the thread was over two years old, and it didn't really answer my questions of help me. If this is against the rules, I'm sorry and please feel free to delete this. I just want to put as little strain on my TESTs laser as possible to make it last as long as possible.
