you bloody legend! I Joined just to say you saved my sanity.
I updated to a 2TB drive and had nothing but issues.
I couldn't use winhiip. ended up using HDLD helper with a macro to batch them to job list (stuff around in itself) only for it to crash. so had to do 50 at a time or would crash. I get about halfway through the HDD and the program stops recognizing the hard drive as a ps2 hard drive!
I find this program edit the batch and change it to test (should only do a few games as it went through my whole list for each one popping up with wanting admin rights for each game (i turned that notification off) then had a popup saying program installed incorrectly (HDLDUMP.exe) but i marked that as installed correctly and all was good.
Speeds are about 57MB/s with both target and source drives in the same NAS. (HDLHelper gui using v0.86) was getting about 100-110MB/s) but this just works!
And dont get me started on naming! if i had this 6 months ago my life would of been easier! btw the new OPl does do new names again but using this tool would be 1,000,000x faster
