you would need to explain in detail to us how you were copying those games to the drive for us to have a prayer of helping you.

where's the PS2 drive now?

I do not know this program, but from what I can gather, it is used to back up your games to your PC drive,then copy them back to a larger drive, then put the larger drive back in the PS2?

In other words, wiinhip is a windows program for backing up a drive.

Did you put the drive (PS2) on the same cable or different cable then your PC drive?

It sounds like you need to double check that you have all of your cables connected correctly. You attempted to attach another hard drive to your computer and now the original hard drive does not boot.

First verify that you have the data cable connected properly to your hard drive and to the motherboard. make sure it is not loose first of all, or partly connected, and if it is not a cable that it is impossible to connect it backwards, make sure that it is not.

Then verify that you have power connected to the hard drive and it is spinning up. Listen to it and place your hand on the top of the drive to verify this. If it spins up and the data cable is connected properly, you will need to go into your BIOS setup to verify that the drive is being detected. Would need to know what type of computer you have to determine how to walk you through that.

So have you verified that all the cables are properly connected? If you accidentally pulled it partly off your computer will not boot. If everything looks good, then try tapping the <Delete> button repeatedly immediately after turning your computer on. There are different ways to enter BIOS but this is the most common. If that works, then note the BIOS type and version (usually at the top of the BIOS menu once you are into it).
