I have a 2001a slim ps3 modded with rebug 4.81.2. Decided to copy some of my games to a USB hard drive and ran into an issue with the above-mentioned game. If I install it to the primary hard drive it works fine. If I install it to my USB it first has to install around 12gb of extra data. When I launch the game it will allow me to reach the screen where you choose ffx or X2 etc but when I select a game and hit x it freezes on a black screen indefinitely. I have tried copying a working installation from the primary hard drive as well as copying to USB straight from my game disk. I have ruled out the USB hard drive being the issue as other games do work on it no issue. My hard drive is a 1tb Western digital green formatted fat32 at 32k clusters. It's in a powered startech hard drive dock. I think that's all the pertinent information. I have tried mounting the game from webman as well as mmcm.

Hmm very strange issue indeed as i was just playing my backup of that very game and its on my external and both games run perfectly. Only difference is my external hdd is ntfs not fat32.

Wasn't aware of any compat lists. Will have to google it up. I am new to ps3 scene but not new to modding in general. Thanks for the tip.

So I managed to solve my own problem, albeit by accident. After having no luck copying the game to external I opted to rip an iso image to the external so I could transfer it to pc. By pure luck I noticed thta it would allow me to mount the iso in webman. Figured I'd give it a go and lo and behold it worked a treat. No more black screen freezes, no more extraneous data install, nada. Figured I'd pass the word along for anyone who might find themselves in my situation.
