USBUtil can reject an install complaining about the "SYSTEM.CNF" file that way for several different reasons.
One thing which is certain to cause that error is if the main boot file, as indicated by the "BOOT2 = " directive in that file refers to an elf file with a name that does not match the standard pattern of game elfs named after their product code, meaning that they must follow this kind of pattern: "????_???.??"
So the total number of characters must be 11 and there must be an underscore as fifth character and a period as ninth character.
A homebrew emulator ISO using "SNES_EMU.ELF" is bound to fail, as it uses too long name
And a name like SNESEMU.ELF" is doomed to fail because it breaks the pattern
But with a name like "SNES_EMU.OK" for the main elf the ISO installs fine
This problem mostly affects homebrew discs, as they follow no official Sony standards for file names, but it also happens with some commercial games, and especially with game collections where individual sub-games use original product-code filenames, but the main elf does not.
This kind of problem can also strike old working ISOs that were installed for USBAdvance and worked fine there. But when USBUtil makes its own analysis of the setup it may reject some of those ISOs just because it doesn't 'like' the filename pattern of the main elf.
I have informed ISEKO of this problem so now we can only hope it will be fixed in a future version.

Hi guys am new here
I have a problem with usbutil. Whenever i create games from isos on my system they don't play on my ps2....i get a blank screen.

I would like to request that the next English release supports XP64.
Anyways, thanks for the tool, v1.02 works fine for simple stuff, but I would like the patching options of the later versions(v2.0\v2.1) for XP64.
I have a stick with 14.5G of space, i converted Fifa 2010, God of War and Resident Evil 4 , i have 3 GB left and i want to fit Tekken 5 which is 4GB .
How can i make my games smaller ?
Can you do it with UsbUtil or you need to hack the game first with Gnie's Expert Tool ? ( btw can anyone attach that here ,can't find it anywhere )
You may use USB Util for that: "file >> Open ISO to[explore/modify]" >> select the ISO and right-click it and then click in "Rip Game/ISO". Also, it's possible to shrink games already installed (USB ADV-format). Right-click in any game on the list and then "RIP Game/ISO".

Anyway, there is an interesting discussion about that in this thread:
