I can see all my shares on my vista pc, but when I go to play or view anything it hangs at Detecting file format...
Arg. Nothings password protected and my ps3 sees my shares also, but plays fine.
This ps2 with sms seems poitless on a network if i cant play the files it sees. avi, mp3, mpg, mp4, etc *all* ~ whateva i play or view it hangs.
I dont think SMS has ever played nicely with Vista when it comes to samba sharing, it was fine with XP and seems fine with Windows 7, but i havent read one thread that was Vista and SMS related where a smb solution was ever found..
You can use Radhost client instead of a samba share, that WILL work..
Hi all, I have a problem with all versions of SMS above 2.8 when the usbd.irx was changed.
problem is on detecting usb Hdd it freezes.
Booting from fmcb 1.8, i just updated to 1.8b and same problem.
Hdd is a WD 1.5TB
SMS Version 2.8 (Rev.1)
Simple Media System: Tiny yet powerful DivX/Xvid/MP3 player for the PS2. SMS will read video files from a variety of sources: Network Streaming, USB Drives, Hard Drives, CD/DVD-ROM. Changelog for Version 2.8 (Rev.1): - fixed small problem (repeat glitch at the end) related to FLAC decoder (thanks to 'vectis' for the remark/sample clip); - added suport for FLAC files containing ID3 tags (these are currently ignored) (thanks to 'vectis' for the remark/sample clip); - updated USB mass storage driver;
Is there a way to force SMS to load external USBD.irx?
I know there was, but this doesn't seem to work for me putting in mc0:/Boot/ etc. etc.
Don't know if it still works, but SMS most likely won't check the BOOT folder anyways. Try putting the USBD.IRX in SMS or SYS-CONF folder, which should be the default places for drivers.

Just so you know, the "USB mass storage driver" is not USBD.IRX...
USBD.IRX is the generic interface for basic communication with devices on a USB bus.
But it has absolutely nothing to do with the higher-level filesystem usage of a mass storage driver.
The mass storage driver uses the USBD.IRX driver in order to communicate with the hardware, so either of these drivers can be responsible for changed compatibility. But if it was only the mass storage driver that was replaced, then using an external USBD.IRX has no chance of helping restore compatibility.
I'm not sure if it still is possible to use external mass storage drivers with SMS, but if it is then you probably need to use one of the old "USB_mass.IRX" drivers for it. And of course you need to double-check the precise filename to be used (upper/lower case etc). This is the kind of thing on which I would prefer a statement by EEUG himself, since few others can have the necessary insight into SMS internals. (I know I don't...)

Thankyou thankyou thanku, this has had me stumped for the past 4 nights.
solved it by placing usbd.irx and usbm.irx (old versions) in sms folder on mc:D
finally can view photos from sms although a little slow i must say
I have this problem of SMS freezing while playing avi files. They play for a while and then SMS freezes. I am using SMS 2.9 rev4 located on my external hdd along with the movies. I start SMS through ulaunch.elf CD.
