    Your clear answer would be that the game is probably not compatible with USbadvance.
    You would have to swap the DNAS or IOPROP image to get the game too work, maybe.
    Read Step #2 and #3 on how to change it.

    It can be yes as long as the pen drive is compatible with the PS2.
    You will just have to try it too see.

    Your pen drive may not be compatible then.
    You could try uLaunch on a DVD or CD and see then if it will recognize the pen drive.

    Yes you can use the SMS player and watch videos from your usb drive.
    Check 3.6 of this tutorial
    http://sksapps.com/sms/en/

    Official SMS forum here:http://www.ps2-scene.org/forums/official-sms-forums/

    You may have to format your usb drive to FAT32

    UsbXtreme uses FAT32 format also, it only mentions NTFS at first to initialize new drives to take advantage of full space.

    So your ok with FAT32 for both programs.

    so i looked at this site: http://sksapps.com/sms/en/ and it says that first if i dont have a modchip i need the independence exploit. now, i dont have a swapdisc or any of the sort, and i was wondering if there is anyway to install the exploit without these.

    Do you have a PS1 disc? If so then you can install the exploit yourself.
    http://sksapps.com/index.php?page=exploit_utility_tutorial.html

    Or you can install fmcb 1.7 to your mc, so that you can launch any ELF file without ever needing a swapdisc.
    Or have one of the fellows at psx-scene install for you for just the cost of postage to them and back plus your mc.
    http://bootleg.sksapps.com/tutorials/fmcb/

    You can read about fmcb here:
    http://psx-scene.com/forums/freevast/

    Read the FMCB faq at the top of the page under announcements.

    ok, ive gotten as far as putting all the necessary files on my usb device. however, when i plug the device into my ps2 and restart it, nothing happens. the regular "browser" and "system config" show up. the installer page like in the picture never shows up. i cant figure out why my ps2 isnt recognizing my device. any advice?

    Ok well the PS2 just can't recognize the usb device without some sort of software first.

    So you would first need to install the exploit, and then have uLe 4.28 running.Ule tutorial is you need it.

    http://sksapps.com/index.php?page=exploit_utility_tutorial.html

    Then once uLe is running, you go to Filebrowser, choose /Mass and you will see the contents of your usb device.
    Then click on the FREE_MCBOOT.ELF and the installer will start.
    You need to put in the mc you wish to install on, then format, then click on Mult-Install and wait til it says complete.

    i used this site: http://sksapps.com/index.php?page=exploit_utility_tutorial.html and got as far as burning a copy of the disc i needed, but it seems as if i still need some sort of swap disc. im not sure what im doing wrong. i made the disc to go with my ps1 game and i put the ps1 game in the ps2... it starts (ive tried various combinations of when to switch the ps1 disc to the burned disc) and when i switch the discs, it either says an incorrect ps2 format or it just freezes. maybe i have the wrong files on the disc or something else... help...?

    Oh lord, "My Bad"
    You have done everything correct as far.
    Do you have a cheat disk of any sort? Gameshark, Xploder, Armax

    Otherwise maybe contact one of those fellows at psx-scene, Dangwoot is good and he could install what you want to mc.

    unfortunately not, i dont have any of those. there was a place nearby that installed modchips, but i think they recently went out of business or something, they never seem open. i guess i'll call around a few places and see if any of them do any of this sort of stuff... thanks for the help tho

    Your welcome. Sorry for making ya go through the steps, and realize you didn't have a cheat disk.

    Seriously check out Dangwoot, he lives in the states and he only charges postage for your mc to him and back to you.

    Thats pretty cheap to have your PS2 modded.

    I have done a few also for some in Canada and a couple in the states.
