    Hey folks.

    I'm running a slim PS2, and I wanted to be able to use CodeBreaker on my HDD. What I read says that you can only use a Codebreaker or similar device with an HDD, since it won't work with ESR.

    So I'm trying to run USBAdvance with my SeaGate FreeAgent hard drive, but it says "Please insert a USB Device..." or something to that effect.

    Half of it is formatted as FAT32, the other half in WBFS. So what's going on here?

    I think the FAT32 partition needs to be the 1st partition. Also, did you see somewhere that CodeBreaker is confirmed to work on USB Advance? I think using any cheat device with anything other than retail discs is complicated, you need to follow a guide for that. Can you link the used guide?

    You might also want to look for a guide on how to use cheats on Open PS2 Loader, as it can load from usb HDDs too.
