Do you see Hacked OSD? (more than 2 options in the menu without disk)?
If not, you didn't install FMCB properly.
If so, you did install FMCB properly.

Do you have PS2 "fat" or "slim"? If you have "fat" you can use an HDD adapter and Open PS2 Loader to play games on a hard disk. If you have "slim", you can use Open PS2 Loader to play games off of an USB drive (but it will be slow).

You might want to go to psx-scene.com if you want better help...

Hi. Thks for your answer. The FMCB is not installed for sure. Everytime i burn a dvd with the files, it does'nt start and show the red screen and the message in this post title. Maybe i'm doing something wrong, or missing any file to burn, but it wont start the cd/dvd and therefore the USB pen. Only memory card is shown.
I have a PS2 SLIM SCPH-77004 and modded the sensors, but still wont recognize the burned dvd's. :(
I really am a noob in these kind of stuff, and i've already watched all kind of videos and forums with FMCB installation. What am i doing wrong?

I totally misread your original post. Here's how i used to install FCMB on my PS2's. you burn an EDITED disc of a game you own that's compatible with this method. For me it was Metal Gear Solid 3. You put in the ORIGINAL disc in the PS2. You then open the disc drive without the sensors knowing it opened. (For my PS2 phat this was with a card cut with a sort of hook). You put in the EDITED disc. Then you go to a specific menu (Which menu depends on what game). This should open the FCMB installation menu. From there on it should be self explanatory.

If you have a specific issue installing it then give us more information.

dimmidice: I'll try one more time, just like you did. I only have PES6 here. It might work though ( i hope so)

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    Although in most systems these days physical is pretty shitty since it requires installation.
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Series s can still do 1440p fine I just can't argue spending double over a few extra games you'll hardly notice
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Fps in games anyway
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    I like physical
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    I dislike digital only when most games are cheaper physical.
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    And with this sale the different is only 50€ to the series s
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Depends you can get a VPN and buy Argentina codes like half the cost
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    Id need to use another account though iirc.
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    I like having all my games in one account.
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Nah just set your VPN and use redeem.microsoft it's been working for me
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    Anyway, series x seems to be compatible with 360, so I could play all my games there.
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    I was thinking about the ps5 but only reall exclusive I'm interested in is FFXVI
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    and gamepass is nicer than sony's option
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    but dunno...
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Theirs not enough exclusives for ps5 especially since they're realizing PC sells
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    FFXVI will probably follow suit too
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    If Delta was an exclusive I'd probably buy a ps5 but nah
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    Delta?
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Mgs remake
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    Ah, MGS?
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    yeah, took me a sec there
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    All those years of anti scalpers and when consoles are finally back in stock everything's getting a PC port lol
  • Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
    is wild hearts any good? it seemed pretty promising but dunno
    Skelletonike @ Skelletonike:
