I didn't understand your problem, until tonight when I installed fmcb 1.7 on one of my Sony 8mb black mc, that had previously been working with fmcb 1.6
I can't boot any of the apps listed under Browser Menu, as it just returns to the Browser Menu screen.
I have set the fmcb configurator exactly the same as I have on other mc's that I have successfully installed fmcb 1.7 (they work fine)and still it does not save or work correctly.
I am thinking I have a dud memory card here, yet fmcb 1.6 works on it.
Sounds like it, I am sure its the mc as I installed the Multi-version using my V14 SCPH-75001 and tried on the SCPH-39001 V7
I can actually launch the apps under fmcb menu by using the assigned shortcut keys while starting my PS2.
* BOOT.ELF ( R1)
* ESR.ELF ( R2)
* HDLOADER.ELF ( L1)
* SMS.ELF ( L2)
* FMCB Configurator ( START)
But I can't use them under the Free McBoot Menu, as it just returns back to that screen.
fmcb 1.7 works great on my Datel Plus 64 mc and one of my other Sony 8mb cards just not this particular one.
That mean the prob happen to me and u coz mc. I dont have any other mc :( . Fmcb have not compatible with some mc?Why?And how to know that mc is original or chinese clone?
@Syed & windrider42:
This problem seems very mysterious, but I see one possible explanation for your inconsistent results, though I'm not sure if this really applies to the installs you've made.
If you both had Multi-Version installs of FMCB v1.6 on those MCs earlier, and then upgraded to Multi-Version installs of v1.7, without first formatting the MC or using the command "Uninstall Multi-Version", then the FAT system of your MC could be slightly messed up. (Due to the Multi-Version FAT trick, where 22 filenames share the same data sectors.)
Information on these aspects is not available in the previous posts of this thread, so:
Did you previously have Multi-Version installs of FMCB v1.6 ?
Do you now have Multi-Version installs of FMCB v1.7 ? (I only know that windrider42 does)
In your last installation, did you format MC or use the "Uninstall Multi-Version" command ?
If your replies to these three questions are 'yes, yes, no' then that might explain your problems, and a good solution should then be to reformat that MC before starting a fresh install of FMCB v1.7
(NB: That Uninstall command can probably not help now, since that is intended to deal with 'dummy' files of a single installation, not the remnants from an older one as well.)
However, if this is not your problem then I really don't have a clue as to what to try next...

I have tried more than 5x to format my mc first and then install the v1.7 but get that prob too. Tried to format using mckiller,using fmcb formater ..I think my mc
I agree that it does seem to be the MC itself that is the problem, if we only look at your results with FMCB v1.7

And if it really was a physical/electronic fault with this MC then it should have worked equally bad with FMCB v1.6.
So I've reached the end of my ideas about your problem... :(

Oh?I wrote 100% ? Sorry bro my mistake. When writing 1st text im in stress actually v1.6 not 100% ok, i can say 80% ok coz prob like this happened too but not always like v1.7. In v1.7 i can say 5% ok..Coz very always happen. Sorry bro my mistake
Ok I tried on 2 of my Sony 8mb Black mc, and the same thing happened on both of them.
I have formatted them with Codebreaker, and Armax and still get same results.
I can boot the apps by using the assigned pad keys , and also can have disc in drive and it will auto load with ESR
But I cannot launch an app from Sony Main menu, very strange indeed.
I now just installed on another Sony 8mb Black card and it works perfectly.
I would have to say to just buy some new memory cards and try again.
I had The Same Problem With My M@X 32MB Card. And Would Format Before Install Using The Embedded Formater. Didnt Work? Used MCKiller. And Now It Works:D Give That A Try. I have The ELF Only File Posted Here.
