HELP! Keep getting a black screen when I run any ELF!!!
Hey there everyone,
I'm new to to this forum and just read up on this wonderful piece of software for the PS2. I primarily want to use my PS2 to run DivX files via the USB port.
I am quite old, and not-so-tech savvy so any inputs here would definitely help. I bought a PS2 (Slim, SCPH 70004 CB, 2005 model, PAL with a Matrix Infinity Chip V.1.38). The lens seems to be working fine as I can read any CDs / DVDs / CDRs / DVDRs on the first try without any problems. I recently made a uLaunchElf V.4.38 boot DVD - which boots up perfectly every time I start with this DVD.
Here's my problem. I plugged in a USB drive and can browse the files on it. I try and run SMS 2.5 and 2.9, I downloaded from the web - but every time I do, the PS2 just displays a black screen and does not proceed. Is this normal? I am assuming my USB is fine because I can read the files once uLaunchElf loads on startup.
I re downloaded these ELF's many times from different sources, but run into the black screen everytime! I also tried other ELF's, none of which open (All go into the black screen once clicked on). I want to install the FMCB (Free McBoot) but again, the ELF's just take me to a black screen. :rant:
What am I doing wrong!?
1. Do I need to disable my Modchip (If so how - Matrix Infinity V.138)?
2. Do I have to make a special CNF file for it to run these ELF files it can see on the USB?
3. I will check if my USB is formatted to FAT32 in 2 hours, but I am assuming since it is reading the files in the File browser, it is already FAT32.
Any other suggestions guys. I have been fiddling with this for 3 days, and its really annoying and getting on my nerves! Please help!
Thanks in advance from Dubai!
