Help with FCMB from SCPH-70012 to SCPH-30001
Hi all. This is my first post here, and I apologize if this question has already been answered in some form. All of the discussions can be a bit overwhelming to a noob. Even so, I've managed to create my own FMCB card using Swap Magic and the noobie guide on the FMCB site. I installed v.18b with the multi-install. However, I now need some help.
I used my PS2 slim (SCPH-70012) with Swap Magic to create the FMCB card. I added both the Open PS2 Loader and the HDLoader ELF files. However, these didn't show up on the FMCB menu screen. Perhaps this is because I created (and/or ?) booted off a slim, not fat PS2.
I have a PS2 fat (SCPH-30001) with network adapter and 120GB Samsung drive (it fits). When I used the card created on the slim to boot the fat, neither OPL nor HDL shows up on the menu. Is this because I did not create the card on the fat PS2?
I have a couple of questions.
1. Am I right in assuming that neither OPL nor HDL shows up because I created the card on the slim?
2. Now that I can boot from the card on the fat, is there a way to create a new FMCB card natively on the fat using the FCMB apps? I don't have a flip-top for the fat and can use Swap Magic only on the slim.
I also have AR Max but without the Media Max functionality. If the answer to #2 is no, I may try the PS1 exploit.
UPDATE: I was able to create a new card on the fat but OPL and HDL still aren't showing up. Anyone know why? (I think that the fat isn't really creating a "new" card -- I deleted the Simple Media System ELF from the USB drive, and it still shows up in the menu.)
I really appreciate your help with this matter!
