Hello. I am new here and am grateful for both this forum and any help you can lend.
Here are the facts: trying to do FFXED. I have a SCPH-30001 PS2, Swap Magic 3.6 (the one with the disc and tool - no mods). I tried this TWO ways: first is I took exactly the file that I attached to this post, put it on a flash drive (which did not work, more on this in a moment) and then I tried the cd route using the file from...hell I can't find it again. Basically I had some help from a friend who directed me to a file to put on a cd. It looked promising.
Neither worked worth a DAMN.
For the flash drive I did EXACTLY this, step-by-step: reformatted the flash drive in fat32. Put the files on the attached file to this post on it. Put flash in PS2, turned on. Then I put in the Swap Magic 3.6 disc. It went to the splash page...and remained there. It would never move beyond that! Wtf?
So I tried the cd route as it should have been a sure bet. Turned on PS2, put in swap magic 3.6 disc, got to the appropriate screen, used the swap magic tool to put in the disc I made, and it said it was "not a valid PS2 disc" and it would not do anything with it. It never prompted anything whatsoever.
I'm lost. I've done this all correctly as per all the instructions on this page: http://freemcboot.info/index.php.
Please, oh PLEASE help my dumbass.
