Memor32, FMCB & Backup Games
To start off, I have no real knowledge of how to do the following.
1. Install custom software onto the memory card.
2. And run backup games using it.
What I have done. Following this guide, Memor32
I have a Memor32 which I have transferred to the Noobie package.
I have a USB stick with the folder BOOT and the BOOT.ELF that I extracted from the Noobie Package in it.
The guide told me to have the BOOT folder and BOOT.ELF on the Memor32. But, turning on my PS2 holding R1 as instructed did not do anything. On another forum someone said to put the BOOT folder and BOOT.ELF on a usb stick and hold down on the pad and hold R1, R2, L1, L2 as I boot the PS2
Booting off the USB stick worked. I now get the Ulaunch menu up.
Next I went to load FMCB from the Noobie Package Folder. There was none in the Noobie Package folder. So, I downloaded FMCB 1.8 and transferred that onto the Memor32 into the Noobie Package Folder.
I loaded FMCB on my PS2 and I formated my official Sony 8mb PS2 memory card and I did the normal install onto the Memory Card. Before it installs, it says
'No USBD.IRX, USBHDFSD.IRX found in INSTALL/MODULES folder FMCB loader will not have access to USB device... Continue?'
I continued, it then said 'No BOOT.ELF detected in your INSTALL folder! Continue?
I continued. It installed it.
Now when I load up my PS2 with my 8mb it goes to Free McBoot Version 1.8
In the Menu it has.
2. System Configuration
3. Launch disc
4. Reload configuration
It does not have the uLaunchELF or ESR option in the menu like what is shown in the picture on the tutorial in the link earlier.
I tried making a backup copy of Xenosaga Episode 1. Using Sony DVD+R which is capable of 16x
I also used Memento Disc Patcher 0.9e
I burned the disc using ImgBurn with the Write Speed: AWS (MAX)
Now all I have done is trying to put the disc in my PS2 and choose 'Launch disc' from the FMCB menu. It goes to do something but the disc drive just makes some funny reoccurring noise. Nothing comes up on the screen.
Macbook Pro 2010 Model. DVD drive according to ImgBurn is MATSHITA DVD-R
PS2: PAL Australian SCPH-39002 Model
My PS2 is not modded in anyway.
All I am trying to do is run backup games like Xenosaga using a softmod.
Xenosaga is NTSC and my PS2 is PAL. From what I've read, this isn't a problem when running it as a backup. My TV is a 46" Samsung LCD. Purchased in 2009. I'm assuming it supports NTSC signals.
Anyone that could tell me what I'm doing wrong and how to do it right would be greatly appreciated.
I also have a 640GB portable USB hard drive. If someone could explain to me how to run backups off of it, that would be appreciated as well.
