LaunchELF 4.30 freezes when accessing USB
LaunchELF 4.30 freezes when accessing USB –
Hey, I'm trying to install Free McBoot and I'm using the PS2 game swap trick detailed here:
The problem I'm having is that once I get into the file browser and attempt to open the mass:\ directory, it just hangs there. I've let it sit for upwards of thirty minutes with no change.
I'm using a slim PS2 with the sensor mod. I'm following the guide as closely as I can. I've ripped an .iso of 007 - Agent Under Fire, replaced the DRIVING.ELF, burned it to disc with IMGBurn (I'm using Verbatim DVD-R), and then swapped the games successfully. I can get LaunchELF to come up just fine, it's just loading the USB drive. I'm using a 4GB Kingston DataTraveler 2.0. I loaded the Noobie Pack located here onto it (and yes, it is in FAT32 format):
Is there something I'm overlooking? Is this USB stick just not supported? Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks!
As I recall 4GB Kingston drives were notorious for incompatibility to all of the ancient USB drivers way back when... I can't now recall if that applies to the period when uLE v4.30 was released (September 2008), but I can say with certainty that the USB drivers of uLE have been upgraded many times since then.

My second tip, is that you should try it with a different brand of USB drive, as Kingston are still notorious for inconsistent compatibility (some of them work, some of them don't), while some other brands like SanDisk consistently give good results (as long as any u3 nonsense is removed first).
But getting a newer uLE is a top priority, as you should use that also to replace the one in your noobie package, so you don't use a crappy obsolete version in all your future boots.

That was exactly what I needed! I updated to the newest version of uLE and used a 2.0 GB SanDisk U3 Cruzer Micro USB (with the aforementioned nonsense totally blown away) and it worked like a charm. Thanks so much!
