    It dont think thats possible, you can get bigger memory cards, like 64mb, but you cant get a usb flash drive to work as a memory card.

    Can you use a memory card as anything else besides something to transfer save data? *reffering to my topic*

    You can copy elf files onto, these are basically applications that you can later load of the memory card, for example a media player, but not other files, its only 8mb, too small to hold much data.

    Ah true.

    What kind of Media Player files are suggested for this? Do they play any file you have on a hard drive? Or, are they basically the same as Magic Swap and let you only use 4 files (Which I can't even figure out how to do so)

    I use to use swap magic, until i got a matrix chip, cant remember how to load them on swap magic, what you do, is make a folder on your usb flash drive, called "swap magic", or something like that, and u copy the files in there, naming them dev1, dev2, or something like that, i might be mixing up with something else. But you should be able to check on the swap magic website on how to do it.

    Ok, these are basically a more in-depth guide to the instructions.

    My first query is:

    Is it certain you are only allowed 4 programs in your Swap Magic directory at once? You can't just plug in a USB or Hard Drive and watch whatever is on there.

    And second:

    What is the ELF program I want to launch? What is this SWAPMAGIC.ELF?
    I simply wish to find out what I need to put in certain places, and where I get those things.

    Thanks

    ELF files are programs for PS2.
    ELF files are for the PS2 as EXE files are for Computers.

    i have never used any of the said above programs as m waiting of swap magic to arrive (only recently bought it online)

    from what i understand, u can only have 4 ELF (program) files in the swapmagic folder as there are key combinations u use with the PS2 controller to select which one u want to load within the swap magic menu.

    Reality Media Player Pro seems to be a very popular ELF file that when loaded will play media files from the PS2.

    it can be found here
    about 10 up from the bottom of the page

    i have not used this ELF and do not know how to use it or what type of media files it plays, but it seems popular so maybe another member might help u out with that.

    found this
    In other words, if you are using swap magic, install uLaunchELF (here) using the following method:
    1. Rename your program to SWAPMAGIC.ELF
    2. Create a folder named SWAPMAGIC in the root directory of your USB Key and then put the SWAPMAGIC.ELF file in the folder.
    3. Plug-in the USB Key to the USB port of the PS2 and then boot your PS2 with SwapMagic. If the program (SWAPMAGIC.ELF) is found in "../SWAPMAGIC/", it
    will be launched automatically.

    or also:

    You can put maximum 4 files in the SWAPMAGIC folder at the same time. But, you need to rename those programs to SMBOOT0.ELF, SMBOOT1.ELF, SMBOOT2.ELF and SMBOOT3.ELF respectively.
    2. Plug-in the USB Key to the USB port of the PS2, then boot your PS2 with SwapMagic.
    3. When the title screen appears (you will see 2 options: Load Program and Video Mode), you can press:

    A. "UP+L1" buttons to load SMBOOT0.ELF
    B. "UP+L2" buttons to load SMBOOT1.ELF
    C. "UP+R1" buttons to load SMBOOT2.ELF
    D. "UP+R2" buttons to load SMBOOT3.ELF

    key combinations that will load each of the 4 elf programs smap magic will let u have.

    P.S. does anyone know how i can edit my posts so i dont have to keep adding new replies ???

    Well, I'm using SMS Media Player, which is successfully working.

    Only problem is, they read what is on the disc, rather than what is on my flash/pen drive.

    What format must the media on my flash/pen drive be in order for me to watch it, please?

    if player is successfully working off usb pen, then it is formatted correctly. if will not look for media on usb hdd or usb pen, or ide hdd. try diff player like that reality media player, its only 2.1Mb i think.

    but if u insist on trying diff formats. try FAT32, followed by just plain old FAT, or lastly NTFS. one of em has to work. have a play around till something works

    Ok, thanks.

    Well, i've reached a point I don't understand.

    I am using SMS, and it's booting and working. I just can't get it to realise my USB is in there.

    I'll point it out in the following:

    What I don't understand is written in Bold above. If someone could please help me, it would be much appreciated.

    I have the media and all, I just don't know what the heck they mean by Folders.

    i kno that mc0:/ refers to the location of memory card slot 1. on the PS2.

    so i'g guess that, i have to get the USBD.IRX from http://naplink.napalm-x.com/.

    extract npm-usbd.irx" from what u just downloaded. to your comp. and rename it to USBD.IRX (all Caps)

    then use a FTP ELF to transfer file from your computer to your PS2 via a cross-over ethernet cable. into the ethernet port in the back of the PS2 ( if u have one) or into the network adapter.

    use the ELF to transfer file into a exploited Memory Card in slot 1.

    Ok, thanks for that.

    I've done everything and now it's working on my PS2.
    Only problem is, video files are being played as mp3's, and there is only sound (and thats static as it is), and no picture (except the basic blue bubble background of SMS)

    Ah, ok. Thanks.

    Is that very hard to set up? Or is it the same as setting up SMS?

    honestly i wouldnt kno, i got a PS2 slim, but waiting on swap magic in the mail.

    all my knowledge is theoretical from reading hundreds of posts.

    just download it. try it. use this forums search bar to search for psosts dealing with the reality player pro. and possibly look for a homepage or website for the program....
