I recently repaired the laser assembly in a DTL-H50001 I had in storage. Now that it's working again I added a HDD/BB adapter and have everything working fine except being able to boot any loader from disc. In particular HDloader, uLaunchelf, OPL, ect.
I've been using MasterDiscPatcher v3/v4 on every ISO downloaded and/or created by me before burning. The only homebrew app I've been able to get booting is PS2Link server which was already an ISO that I MD patched. This does allow me to run HDLoader, uLE, OPL, ect, but booting directly would be much better.
So far I've tried PS2CDGen and IMGBurn to create ISOs. With IMGBurn I've tried both Mode1/2, ISO9660, Level 1/2 (11/31 char) and created nothing but PS2 coasters.
Downloaded ISOs for games (CD and DVD) play fine after MD patching so I know the disc drive is working.
Can someone please let me know how to create reliable ISOs for TEST units?
Thank you very much!
