Help with USB HDD and SMS
Help with USB HDD and SMS –
I need some help. I have a 40GB USB HDD that I use to run games off of with USB Advance. I'm running the exploit on my ps2 and any other ELF file that is capable of detecting a HDD detects mine, but SMS won't. I used LaunchELF to put a USBD.IRX in mc0:/SMS/ but nothing happens when I boot into SMS. If anyone knows what to do, feel free to post. If I figure it out, I'll post what was up.
Have you tried the USBD.IRX version recommended in the manual (sticky thread)?
Thanks for your response, and yea I did. I read somewhere that the PS2 Linux USBD.IRX works for my problem. If anyone has that, send it my way?
edit: I know rules say no requesting warez, linux is opensource so please help me out? I can't find linux anywhere adn stock is out in US.

Napalm's usbd.irx didn't work for me, I found someone who had the same problem and fixed it. He sent me his working USBD.IRX so I'll post in a bit to say if it worked.
edit: still no luck with either USBD.IRX, could use any suggestions

I've been using SMS with a 40GB USB drive for the past few weeks now ... it's brilliant! But I did have to format the drive using FAT32 as it did not recognize NTFS partitions. Is yours FAT32?
I'm pretty sure that USB Advance allows the use of NTFS, that may be the difference.
I have a 80GB USB HDD that I use for the PS2 too. It is also formated in FAT32 (one of the partitions, which is the one I use). It works perfectly for uLaunchElf, RealityMediaPlayer and SMS (haven't tried any other homebrew) using the naplink USBD.IRX file.
I guess we need to be kind of lucky to have a USB device compatible with the PS2, one of my old pendrives doesn't work for example, but the HDD and a newer pen work perfectly...
Thanks for all the help guys, I managed to get the PS2 Linux USBD.IRX and it works like magic. I've been watching pr0ns and goodies since yesterday.
I was wondering if you guys could help me, as I have the same problem.
I've been using the USBD.IRX from naplink and have placed it in SYS-CONF on the memory card. I've been using the Reality Media Player, and the MASS storage has been working fine. However, when using SMS, it just freezes on 'Locating USBD.IRX...'. I've tried using different versions of USBD.IRX, and I currently have version 1.4 (found by using USB Checker.exe) from Killzone, but it still freezes. Reality still works with this version, so I don't know what the problem is.
