How to Boot backups with AR MAX

    I've got a Nosolder in my PS2, and it works fine with the AR2 discs, but i've managed to get the new AR MAX, and since it's totally new interface, i wonder how do i boot them with PS2 backups, if it's possible....

    Thanks

    Thanks, that's a shame...

    It seems i'm only use the AR MAX to backup my save games to a SanDisk USB 256mb Pen (that i've yet to figure out to put it to work in PS2...)...

    hi

    i formated my usb 2.0 pen to fat 16bit


    i had probem with 512mb usb pendrive i could backup the files from psTWO to my pen and transfere them to the pc ok. and also put them back on to psTWO memcard but had problem reading them on psTWO console only said it was currupt data.
    in the armax file list they have a @ sort of sign on them and they would show ok.
    i had a think and what i found was they were crunched.
    so use armax cd and enter file list then do not copy to mem card but uncrush to mem card and all shoud be ok.

    Hi johnim,

    Your USB2.0 drive doesn't work because the PSTwo only supports USB1.1

    Hope that this was helpful

    USB 2.0 is backwards compatible with 1.1.....

    Indeed, a USB 2.0 drive or card reader will work on a USB 1.1 port...
    But with the PS2 it might be diferent, or no???

    Anyway, i've formated my 256Mb pen with USBoot, and it still won't work with my PS2 v5 and AR MAX!!!

    What can i do to make it work???
    Can i format the pen with 16bit FAT????

    It might help if i could find out how are the AR MAX pen's formatted and what files they have to work with AR MAX...
    Can anyone help me out with this???

    Is that i've bought AR MAX, hoping that it worked with any pen (as stated in several forums)...

    I hope it might works, since it would prevents me from buying AR MAX EVO just to have a 16 Mb pen!!!!

    Any ideas are helpfull....

    na, its not different. you can use 2.0 pendrives with the PS2.
    USB 2.0 is backwards compatible with 1.1.
    Im using a 2.0 pendrive with my PS2 right now, works fine.

    I know 128MB pendrives work fine, ive tried a 512MB drive but my PS2 just wouldnt recognise it. maybe the same applies for 256?
    You may have to get a 128MB drive if you cant get your 256 to work.

    Well, my Sandisk 256Mb Pen still won't work!
    I've tryed with the factory format, it won't work.
    With USBoot, neither!
    And formating it with XP, FAT 16 Bit, it won't work also....

    Any help would be appreciatted, since it semms AR MAX can manage any USB pen (see this thread: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/1/123109), but i'm having a real trouble getting mine to work!!!

    Help, please....

    See my reply in the following post. It was the method in which I transfered the files to the USB memory that caused the PS2 w/ AR to not read it properly.

    Hope this helps you out.
