Either you don't have internally connected a hard disc or you have the same problem as described here:

http://forums.ps2dev.org/viewtopic.php?t=10452

You can enter the command:
Code:

dmesg | less


to see if hard disc was detected while Linux startup. There is a maximum size supported. I am not sure, but I think it is 160 GB (factor 1000 instead of 1024).

Yes.

Normally you would use a partition manager, but I don't want to describe how to do this under windows.
So the easiest way to rewrite the partition table is to install Windows 95, 98 or Millenium on it. WARNING: Disconnect your existing (Windows) hard disc before or everything can be deleted. Short time after it begins to copy files, you can switch it off. Then reconnect it to the PS2 and try again.

Did you check that the hard drive is set to master (jumper)?
Check for enabling/disabling 2GB or 36GB clip and other jumpers.
It is also possible that hard drive is just defect or not compatible.

finnaly works after formating so i type in step seven

fdisk /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/ disc

it comes up as

usage: fdisk [-b SS2] [-u[ DISK change partition table
fdisk -1 [-b SS2] [-u] DISK List partition table(s)
Fdisk -s PARTITION Give partition size(s) in blocks
fdisk -v give fdisk version

here DISk is something like /dev/hdb or /dev/sda
and partition is something like /dev/hda?
-u: give start and end in sector (instead of cylider) units
-b:2048: (for centain NO disks) use 2048-byte sectors



so what do i do now

(btw im using hdd)

Seems like you entered a space before "disc". Don't enter spaces in path names.

The first is correct, but the second is not.

Internal hard disc:
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc <=> /dev/hda
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1 <=> /dev/hda1
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part2 <=> /dev/hda2
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part3 <=> /dev/hda3

USB Memory stick:
/dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc <=> /dev/sda
/dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1 <=> /dev/sda1
/dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part2 <=> /dev/sda2
/dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part3 <=> /dev/sda3

Don't use these parameters. You will never find the correct values. Autodetection should work.
