Subject doesn't show much, so I apologize. So here we go. One of my systems is a SCPH-5**** (probably 50000), and the other is a SCPH-39001. I have installed uLaunchELF already, that one works perfectly fine. HOWEVER, my problem is the following: FMCB v 1.8 doesn't work, it never even shows the "loading...". FMCB v 1.7 does make it to the "loading...", but never goes past. FMCB v 1.6 makes it past both. It makes it the main menu for FMCB, but the only thing that I can actually do without freezing it up is reformatting my Memory Card. When I select normal installation, it quickly says "detecting memory card", and then that disappears, and nothing comes on after that. Frozen. Anything else (haven't tried the "uninstall multi" thing yet, since I have nothing on my Memory card except the hacked system configuration file allowing me to run uLaunchELF. Facts: My memory card is an 8MB official Sony-made Playstation 2 memory card. My flash drive is a FAT32 2 gigabyte Kingston DataTraveler. It seems well enough compatible. The only files on my flash drive is the "FREE_MCBOOT.ELF" and the "INSTALL" folders. And NO, I don't have all 1.8, 1.7, and 1.6 on the flash drive at the same time. My Action Replay MAX is one without the media player option. However, I was informed by http://freemcboot.info/ that I can still utilize my more limited ARMAX for this job, by using the Ps1 Exploit. Please note that I have followed every step of that process (EVERY STEP), and with the nonexistent money in my wallet, I cannot afford anything else than what I have, which is why I plan to stay on this way of installation. I am not using this for pirating, I wish to tell you now. I really don't want to keep paying for the games I already have just so I can get better discs of them. Yes, I am a Kingdom Hearts nerd, and I accept Final Fantasy as a decent game series as well. I've already gone to Gamestop THREE TIMES in TWO YEARS to get replacements for every game I have, as they are definitely NOT ignored on my shelf. So, I merely want to make copies, or as you call it, "back-ups", of my own games that I have bought with my own money, so that I'll not have to waste money on games that I already own. Please help. The information (excluding the personal bit) I have given you are what I believe is what is needed, considering all the forums I have gone to in search for a little help. I hope I can get information soon. Thank you in advance, people of the AfterDawn forums. You people are terrific at what you do. --PlayStation2 owner in distress-- UPDATE: 7/20/1012 Just tried Free McBoot v 1.5. Gets to the "Free Mcboot installer start!" part, then freezes. Now trying v 1.4..................... AAAAAND Free McBoot v 1.4b does NOT work past the, once again, "Free Mcboot installer start!" Just tried v 1.3d, and it still does not go past the installer start sign. Ugh...PLEASE HELP ME.
