    Well then, if you tested it with both ports and it can't load the files, you're gonna need another USB device.

    That doesn't sound right. Are you sure you tried to read the data, and ignored the LED that's supposed to light up?

    And what brand are you using? My 2GB sandisk works fine.

    Uh, I can't view your MAIL attachments.

    And like I said, if it's not loading anything, you're gonna need a compatible USB device.

    Those cruzer and older ones had worked fine for me.
    It sounds like user error, how exactly are you running FreeMcBoot off of USB?

    That's a sandisk cruzer, which works fine on my PS2. As dilav suggested, it could be user error.

    I got the install folder on the root on my sandisk flash drive and freemcboot.elf on root.

    Preferably a 2GB USB thumbdrive. My Kingston 2GB SD card in a card reader from the days of old has never failed me so far on the PS2
