Hi guys, need some help badly here....
Recently I've purchased a 128MB memory card, it looks like this:
And yes I know it's made by a 3rd party so it's cheap and not very reliable, but apparently people have got it to work with Free MCBoot and other homebrews, and since I needed the extra space since my 8MB was already full, I thought I'd give it a try.
So here's the problem, I can get my Free MCBoot, Codebreaker and pretty much everything else to work fine on my 8MB memory card (it's the official SONY one btw). But for some reason, the 128MB one doesn't seem to work. By that, I mean that everything installs on it fine no problem, but it doesn't seem to work as it should, Free MCBoot doesn't work properly and everything else as well, it's like the PS2 doesn't seem to read it properly at all.
I can install everything on it fine no problem, but it seems to be a 2s delay in reading those files. Whenever I use ULaunchElf to read it, it always shows that it's empty. I have to go back to the menu and read it again, and maybe do this 2 or 3 times until it actually refreshes and shows the contents inside.
At first I thought maybe it's because I didn't format it yet, so I tried to use ffgrievers annihalitor V2 found here:
http://psx-scene.com/forums/f19/rele...-v2-0-a-65652/ (Release: MC Annihilator v2.0)
and it formatted successfully, had no errors or anything. But still, nothing works properly on it. So then I tried to use the "Format MC" option in Free MCBoot, at first it didn't read it just like ULE, but after clicking it the 2nd or 3rd time it detected the memory card and I was able to format it successfully. I then installed Free MCBoot and launched FMCB, and finally it showed the Free MCBoot logo and it showed the contents in the PS2Browser correctly, such as:
but when I reset my PS2 and boot into the PS2Browser, it just showed the default options and it didn't show any Free MCBoot logo either. If I boot into DEV1 and use ULE to launch the .ELF files in my memory card, it'll boot into them fine. I can still boot into CodeBreaker fine but everything still don't work properly because after I load the game, it doesn't seem to detect the PS2 memory card properly, because there seems to be a delay in reading it so it doesn't load them properly.
Does anyone how to fix this? Apparently it should be able to work from this thread here:

but I can't seem to get it working...
Nevermind I got it working. Don't know what I did, maybe it's because I tried to use the Format option under "Codebreaker" in the options menu and then tried to install Free MCBoot and this time it shows up properly. Everything else loads fine too so problem solved XD
