How to make POPSLoader work?
I have a PSP-3000, with non-permanent CFW 6.60 PRO-B9. I have tried probably a dozen or so different POPSLoaders and stuff, and none of them have remotely worked. I tried Final Fantasy VII, in a custom/home made eboot (of course, I legally own and ripped the discs), and it won't work no matter what I try. I believe I've tried PopsLoader v3 and v4, and even without PopsLoader.
Here's what happens: The warnings appear, but it isn't the warning you get from loading PSP Memory Stick Games (like if you downloaded a PSP game from the PSN) but PSX Games (what you get from downloading PSX from the PSN). Then, after the warning screen, the PSLogo shows, then the game works just fine; get to the menu screen, select "New Game" and the game freezes indefinitely (there's supposed to be an FMV here; that may affect it?). I've tried holding down the R trigger/shoulder button to make the menu appear, but it has never worked. When it begins to load, I hold down the R and nothing happens, it just boots normally. What on earth is wrong here? I have the .txt file correctly in my seplugins folder, and everything SHOULD work, but it never has. Is there anyway I can get around this? I've read something about having to use a PSARDumper but most of the ones I get don't mention that. So what's the problem? What am I doing wrong, and what can I do to fix this?
Thanks for any and all help,
EDIT: I've tried with a Compression Value of 1 and 9, and neither worked. Do I need to do something in between? (this is in reference to creating the eboot)
EDIT 2: I have an official Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo with Magic Gate Encryption.
EDIT 3: Have tried with Disc Speed set to Normal and Fast.
