PS2 OPL freezing when loading games

Postby Doomer022 » Thu Apr 26, 2018 5:04 pm

So now i have a game installed onto my EXTERNAL USB HDD! Its formatted, its on there, everything is fine, but when i plug it in, it starts to load in the USB Games, but then it freezes like 1-2 seconds later!
Anything i can do to fix this?

Guess I didn't get the memo that you are using the USB method for playing PS2 games. In that case, I don't think WinHiip can do that. Only for internal HDD's. The tutorial I linked is a way to play games off of USB.

Okay i followed everything the tutorial said, now instead of freezing it just wont show any of the games! Any ideas why? And its not FAT32 like in the tutorial because i can only set it to NTFS or exFAT

Is it save tho to format it to FAT32 if windows only allows NTFS and exFAT (Using MiniTool Partition Wizard 10 for formating)?

Do you have USB set to AUTO in the OPL settings?
