    So I've heard that people who buys a preloaded Free Mcboot will make this process abit easier. The question is how easier will it be? Must I still Mod my PS2 with 007 even with my Preloaded Free Mcboot to play my backed up games?
    I can't seem to go to the Free Mcboot menu. It only shows Browse (Just copy and delete) and Configure. Any help is appreciated and I'm sorry for how noobish I am at this.

    My phat PS2 is a SCPH39001 by the way.

    Does the PS2 upon boot have the FreeMCBoot logo come up? cause it sounds to me like it isn't preloaded or the ps2 isn't detecting it, since its suppose to pop up with a menu with selectable homebrew

    It doesn't load to the Free Mcboot logo, it just goes to the Browse and Configure screen. Funny thing is, is that there is memory of the FMCB inside the memory card 8GB

    It might have been copied to the memory card and not installed, you can't just copy FMCB from one card to another, it has to be installed, I would ask the person you got it from how they did it.
