So i"m attempting to run something on my PS2 and im following a guide
but i cant even get two steps into it, when i put the pelican.bin file on the drive it just boots up normal... any ideas, or know of a different place to get the correct pelican.bin file?
Im using a PS2"fat" 5000, official sony ps2 MC, a lexmar 2GB USB drive and codebreakr 9.0
lexar USB drives are not cb compatible. sandisk is known to work for sure.
I got the first file on no problem, i go into the MC manager and see it listed, so i turn off the PS2 remove the usb stick and put pelican.bin onto it. put it back in the usb slot and start up the PS2.

SANDISK cruzar mini 256mb (This one doesnt even show up when i plug it in)
PSP w/ cfw (in usb mode i can get the first file on the mem card but once pelican is on it just loads up normal)
is it in the root and what format is the drive??
In original state most SanDisk drives are completely unusable to all PS2 software, due to the special "u3 launchpad" software that resides in a custom partition which is the first partition on the drive. Almost no PS2 software can access such a drive.

(The exceptions being PS2 Linux and recent versions of uLE, with support for multiple partitions on each drive.)
After cleaning out the drive you should reformat it to FAT32 (the default for that size drive is otherwise FAT16), and then start over with your attempts. FAT16 might work well for CodeBreaker, but it is not advisable for PS2 homebrews, so you really need FAT32.
SanDisk drives (after u3 removal) are among the very best for compatibility to PS2 Homebrews, though I'm not sure how this relates to its use with CodeBreaker.

it is in the root of the drive and and the sandisk was before the U3 software so it doesnt have it installed all three were fat32
