    yup, i did format my USB thumb drive but not with the USBextreme utility coz the USBextreme dosent detect it, infact it dosent detect anything other then the hard drives(internal or external)....
    then used the usbextreme to save the games on my harddrive then manually copy-paste this game files on my thumb drive....

    Ok thats not the clearest video, but I see your problem.

    The USB device is not compatible or its because you copy/pasted your games onto the USB drive as normally when installing games to USB hdd, a "ul.cfg" is created.

    You will know when a drive is compatible when it shows your games like this.

    You also should format it with the "ul_format.exe" and copy games that way then.

    EDIT

    Ok seeing its been so long since I have use USBAdvance as I had needed the hdd I was using for that purpose.

    I decided to take my pendrive, which I know didn't work with USBAdvance when I just copied games to it using the latest USBUtility Ver 1.02

    So I formatted using the Ul_format, then copied one game using the Ul_Install.
    That way it created the ul.cfg on the USB drive.

    I then opened the USBUtility, and opened the ul.cfg and now it shows my game so I can then use this Utility to copy more games to the USB drive.
    This Utility and instructions can be found here.

    dlanor explains it better in this post.

    Another solution so one can use the USBExtreme Win32 Utility is too make your usb pen drive a fixed drive.

    Just read through this post, There are a couple different methods to do this.

    I have a 16GB pen drive and a 2GB Kingston Data Traveler.
    USBAdvance recognized my 2GB Kingston Data Traveler, but doesn't work on the 16GB pen drive.

    Did you do the MULTI-INSTALL, it won't work otherwise.

    Well it should have worked then, unless your friend's PS2 is not the same region as yours.

    I see that now, I missed it before.

    Well I have heard of it not working with only one game installed on some pen drives.
    Try installing more than 1 game and see then if it works.

    Otherwise like I say get a larger USB External drive, they work best.

    fmcb won't work with most modchips. You have to disable your modchip for it too work.

    Nope sorry, there is no way to do a cross region install with fmcb 1.8

    If you have a modchip, then use the CD method to install fmcb 1.8 on your PS2.

    Ok earlier you said you have a modded slim

    What is the SCPH-xxxxx on the bottom or back of your console.

    Most like is PAL, so someone there could install PAL region for you.
