bring out the 8mb memory card and dust the brush mouth/connector port, also do so with the card reader with the games.

Guy don't go to anywhere.

Remove the memory card (memory card with the card reader) before turning on the console. After the console is on and fully loaded, insert the memory card...it will read and you will be able to see your games.


Thank me later wink

Try this, remove the sdcard/usb, turn on the console, when you see the "freemcboot" splashscreen hold "R1" on your gamepad and see if it boots into Ulaunchelf.

Press "O" to access file browser. Open Mc0 or Mc1, access the folders and try finding Openps2loader.elf. Once located press "O" to launch it, if it doesn't work you'd have to download another one.

Under openps2loader there should be a setting to enable autorefresh, try to turn it on and save your settings. Now try the entire process all over again and see if the games show.

Try this then, after booting into Launchelf, plug in your sdcard, press O to access file browser, locate "mass", open it with O, then send me a pic of its content. Or you could simply try another card reader, the card reader might be damaged.

download mckiller from http://www.ps2savetools.com/wpfb-file/mckiller-zip/
Extract to your sdcard
Boot into Launchelf by holding R1 when you see Fmcb splashscreen upon bootup.
Press O to open filebrowser
Open "mass"
Locate and launch mckiller.elf
Now use mckiller to format any memory card you want to format.

Just make sure not to format the memory card with contains freemcboot.

You'll have to reinstall freemcboot on the same memory card.

I understand. What you need to do is to format that memory card and since the memory card contains freemcboot that's why you need to reinstall it. All you have to do is to download freemcboot from that site, extract it to an sdcard, boot into Launchelf, launch freemcboot from sdcard, then format your memory card and reinstall freemcboot on it.

It all depends on the kind of save. For instance if it's a codebreaker save, you'd have to use the codebreaker home-brew program to copy it to your 8mb mem card. Same thing if it were a max drive save. There are also Vmc saves, here you simply mount the vmc using ulaunchelf then you copy the save to your 8mb memory card.
