    Thanks masilli your right some of the games even though they are listed as working don't work for me. I guess I know need to jump into the world of DNAS patching.

    But surely there must be some defining thing that makes them work for some people and not for others? I can't find patches for any of the games i really want to use on usbextreme. I'm guessing it's because everyone says they should work, so no patches have been made.

    I think the problem is maybe the hard drive. If you're using one of the compatible hard drives, it could be it's not formated properly. Just a guess. I have no idea about much on boot games off a USB hard drive.

    It all depends if u have the NTSC or PAL versions. San Andreas and Manhunt NTSC version works fine for me. If u have the PAL version then it wont work.
    Yea it seems USBextreme is crap but iv learn to make the most of it since there is no other way of modding on my slim wihout opening it.(besides swap magic)and i dont have a DVD burner so i cant use that.

    I have 32 games on my 120 gig HD right now and most of the games are new(2005-2006).

    Check there for compatible games.

    I recommend RE4,Onimusha4,Tombraider Ledgends,Tourist Trophy,Driver,Drqgon Quest 8,Sly 3. All NTSC version works great.

    whats up every one, I had some quick questions hopefully some one could help me out. i have a external usb HD, and probably getting usb xtreme but I dont play a whole lot of games and most of the games i do play dont seem to work or you need to swap DNAS. like Hitman blood money, madden06, MLB 06. should I still buy usb xtreme or should i just get swap magic and copy games to dvd since i dont play a whole lot any way and better game compatability? and with swap magic can you benifit at all by using a external HD, if you can how? any info will help thanks.

    Well, I'm very impatient and have given up on USB Extreme mow, it seems way too much hassle to get everything working they way i want it.

    I have just got swap magic in the post today so hopefully will have more success with that

    Just tried the DNAS swap on Moto GP 4, using Tomb Raider Legend for the source. The game still will not play on USB Extreme.

    For the DNAS Swap, you need a matching IOPRP*.IMG file from another image. Here are some of the names from the files on some game disks:


    IOPRP224.IMG - GT3
    IOPRP214.IMG - Tokyo Xtreme Racer Zero
    IOPRP241.IMG - Dead 2 Rights
    IOPRP243.IMG - Tekken 4
    IOPRP270.IMG - Manhunt
    IOPRP20.IMG - USB Extreme
    IOPRP270.IMG - Online CD 3
    IOPRP300.IMG - Online CD 4
    IOPRP300.IMG - Altered Beast Pal
    IOPRP300.IMG - Black
    IOPRP260.IMG - Chessmaster
    IOPRP255.IMG - clock tower 3
    IOPRP300.IMG - driver parallel lines
    IOPRP280.IMG - guilty gear xx slash PAL
    IOPRP300.IMG - state of emergency 2
    IOPRP243.IMG - tokyo extreme racer drift
    IOPRP310.IMG - tomb raider legend
    IOPRP300.IMG - tourist trophy
    IOPRP243.IMG - transformers takati PAL

    [EDIT] - all above games work on USB Extreme, some have PAL to NTSC conversions done, chessmaster has 2 IOPRP files, and you have to press the cross buttin while loading or it locks up...It seems like this info might be usefull for making some kind of exploit, but I'm not sure what for.

    Hope these help someone...

    What kind of hard drive did you use. Please specify whether it's an IDE hard drive in a USB case or a pure USB hard drive.

    I use a Seagate Barracuda 160Gb 7200rpm, divided in 2 partitions. One for UsbX in FAT32 Format and the 2nd in NTFS format, inside a Canyon 3,5" USB case.

    I used the windows client to install the game :)

    yea its been dead no one uses usb extreme anymore. I still do tho lol. Urban chaos has online mode so the PS2 will check the cd for dnas. U should try to use the dnas patch that allowed killzone to work. But then online mode wont work tho.
