Can't find partition –
I haven't set up my own partition but I have used the HDLoader partition which is hdd0:HDLoader Settings/
And within this I have created a folder called ELFs
I can access this fine via Launchelf, but when trying to view it in FlashFXP all I get is [R]550 MNT FAILED
SITE MNT /pfs/0/ hdd0:HDLoader Settings/
SITE MNT /pfs/0/ hdd:HDLoader Settings/
But neither worked. What should I be typing instead of that?
You can't do that way. You first have to use hdd format to create a partition then use flashfxp to mount it. After that you could transfer it.
The problem was execftps had to be run off the mc not the hdd
Now I have another problem I used the partition - ps2apps
SITE MNT /pfs/0/ hdd:+ps2apps
Succeeds, but when I browse to pfs/0 nothing is there
also pfs/0/ps2apps - there is nothing there. No folders or anything
What do I do once its mounted??
I have more info:
I created another partition using dms called BA
So, now I have BA and ps2apps
when I do
SITE MNT /pfs/0/ hdd:+BA
SITE MNT /pfs/0/ hdd:+ps2pps
SITE MNT /pfs/0/ hdd:__boot
r214 site mnt succeeded is what I get, so I know it is mounted
Also if I look in hdd/0 I can see the partitions I created +BA and +ps2apps
But, when I browse to pfs/0/ it is totally empty - absolutely nothing there.
Can somebody help?
First of all, I assume you did not use those commands in direct sequence, like you wrote them down here, as only the first of them could work then. My further comments are based on this assumption, that you only mounted one partition at a time, proceeding to the next only after finishing with the last one, and unmounting that before mounting the next.
Now, __Boot is normally empty, so that one's no problem.
The other partitions I assume to be identical copies of your own ELF collection, right ? If so, please double-check the number of objects in those directories. Surprising as this seems to those unfamiliar with ExecFTPs, the number of objects can cause problems.
There is a 'classical' bug in ExecFTPs, 'inherited' from ps2ftpd causing the server to go 'blind' to the content of directories holding a number of objects that is a multiple of 20 or that same number plus 1. (Variations to this pattern may exist at high multiples.) But this bug appears to be fixed in the very latest version (v0.69), along with many other problems of the older versions.
For example: My MP3 partition currently contains 16 top-level folders and 4 ELF files in its root directory, giving a total object count of 20. Using ExecFTPs v0.68 that directory appears empty, but with v0.69 all the contents are visible.
The only drawback of v0.69 is that no one has successfully patched it for 48-bit LBA yet, but as long as you only use it for partitions below the 128 Gigabyte limit of your HDD, that should be no problem.

I feel quite stupid, as I've just figured out my problem lol
I thought that when you browsed into pfs/0/ I would see the partition +BA or +ps2apps (as a sort of folder)
Both partitions had no files in them
It just suddenly hit me that pfs/0/ was +BA or +ps2apps and sure enough when I added a file in launch elf it showed in FlashFXP
Thanks for the reply though
