Problem installing FMCB 1.8 w/ CD
First of all - and since I'm new to this forum - I'd like to thank you all on the amazing work you're doing on the PS2 scene.
Pretty impressive stuff indeed =).
Now for my predicament:
I have a fat PS2 (SCPH-39004) with no mod-chip installed so I use the SwapMagic v3.3 discs for all my backup needs.
However, I'm interested in installing FMCB 1.8 on my memory card (original Sony 8Mb) and that's where I'm having some issues.
I've noticed that none of my USB pen drives work on my PS2 - I tried formatting those as FAT, FAT32 and even NTFS but no go - so I decided to boot the FMCB installer using a burned CD along with SwapMagic.
I got the CD to boot and the FMCB GUI to show up but I can't seem to install anything besides the FMCB itself.
I've created the CD in CDGenPS2v3 and used the "Noobie Package" INSTALL folder that contains everything I need - ESR.ELF, SMS.ELF, etc.
However, when I choose to do an installation on FMCB it says that it can't find the USBD.IRX files on the INSTALL/MODULES folder, nor can it find the BOOT.ELF on the INSTALL folder - but the files are there!
I've tried putting the INSTALL folder on one of my pen drives and boot the FMCB installer with the pen connected to the PS2 but that does absolutely nothing for me, so fixing the CD issue is my only hope.
Is there anything in particular I might need to do on CDGenPS2v3 besides fixing the SYSTEM.CNF LBA to make the PS2 read the files on the INSTALL folder?
Sorry for the long post but I'm just trying to get specific help since I've read about every tutorial I could find on this matter and that still didn't help my situation =(.
Thank you very much =).
