    easy/fast way to get usb advance working with swapmagic:

    Rename the usbadvance elf as SWAPMAGIC.ELF (all caps) and stick it in your memcard in the folder SWAPMAGIC (also all caps). It'll autoboot to it.

    There's multiple ways to get to the memcard. I boot from a cdr with ExecFTP and then from my PC I transfer from an FTP program.

    I will post Usb Advance Global War shortly, if it isnt against the rulles, I have noticed that this version of usb advanced does not give me problems when I try to load it from Ar max or with the launch elf cd. the only thing is i have only successfully load one game with it. And seriously attempted a second, havent tried a thrid game yet. but hopefully it will be of help

    http://www.filefactory.com/file/bbe1ad/ - USB Advance Global War Edition Elf File

    Just pop in your AR Max, Run Media Player, Select this elf file and it should load with no problem.

    I successfully ran Naruto Ultimate Ninja- Downloaded ISO.
    My backup cd i made of Dragon Ball Z Tenkaichi 2 did not boot, but the Download PAL version of it ran, but I couldnt see it much I have a NTSC system. I hope someone can help me out with how to make backups for USB Advance to load, because this game is scrathed to infinity and beyond lol, barely runs, I tried the other methods of making backups but no prevail.

    Note: I have a Fat PS2, external usb 3.5 HD, using a generic memory stick(did not come with Armax) and Armax Evo

    I have the same model and been trying to do the same for days but it was all for nothing after i found this.

    IMPORTANT: HDAdvance is NOT compatible with the following Japanese PS2 models: SCPH 10000, SCPH 15000, SCPH 18000 and SCPH-7XXXX PSTwo slim series.

    from hdadvance site http://www.hdadvance.com/hd_advance_compatibility.asp

    pls spread the word because i could have use this information sooner. );

    I did this for my fat ps2, v7. I loaded viewtiful joe 2 and it worked perfectly.

    I am not sure why you need to make a SWAPMAGIC folder on the hard drive, it simply is not needed.

    What I did was format the hard drive with the utility. Then I boot USBAdvance CD with Swap Magic 3.6

    Plug in USB hard drive, and load the game. Zing!
