Hey if you bought a Big HD and it seems, that it doesnt work on Swap Magic, I got the answer to your Problems. You just need ONE MEMORY STICK that works.

1. Boot up Swap Magic with your "Booting Memorystick" in USB-Slot 1.
2. Press L2 + UP
3. When the USB-Loader Screen appears, plug out your Memorystick and plug your HD in USB-Slot 2.

It should show up with all your prepared isos on it.
Works for me like a charm.
PAL PS3 60 GB (250GB) / Swap Magic 3.6
Tested with 60 GB HD from PS3 (extern)
Tested with SpaceloopXL 16GB MemoryStick from CnMemory
Both not working in Swap Magic but afterwards :-)

it works fine for me, thanks for the guy who made this great utility!

I'm using a 500gb 2.5inch drive and works without a problem. So you are saying the same game works in the pen drive but not with the HDD? that is strange, are you using the same files created by usbextreme on both just to make sure it was not corrupted?

The usb on the ps3 is 2.0. I'm not sure if there's anything in the BIOS limiting the usb usage. as far as I can tell it's only the usb drivers and the hardware that determines the usb speed. So is it the emulation of the ps2 that limits it to usb 1.1 or just the fact that there's no working usb 2.0 drivers.

They were exactly my thoughts as well. I'm leaning heavily towards drivers being the issue. Who's to say that the PS2 couldn't of been updated to USB2 during it's revisions.
I got my 320gb HDD running FFX yesterday but with strange problems.
With usbloader 0.2b it wouldn't recognize the hdd at all. So now I have 0.2b and the 0.2 usbloader elfs on my usb devices.
Using 0.2 and the usbd.irx Idone supplied on the vmc, I was able to boot the game.

Thanks for that info aries2k6. I'll definitely give that combo a go.

The wierd part is that it didn't recognize the hdd at 1st. I repeatedly pressed the start button a few times and the game started to load.

lol, at first I thought my ps3 had froze and was almost going to reset and then I noticed that the hdd light was flashing and the game was loading.

hmm, is it? I don't know. on the ps2, the actual hardware is usb 1.1 so all the usbd.irx's are 1.1 keeping it the same as the hardware.

I really can't say for sure

My cruzer SanDisc 100Gb's works if that helps (pen drive).

There is, or you could create a file "USBD.IRX" compatible with the standard "USB 2.0" to accelerate the transfer of data between the PS3 and harddisk?

Actually my bad, I did copy and paste but for some reason my Adobe was not capturing the colors, etc (only text), so it would not help to have a plain list of games.

Anytime, just trying to help as much as others have done to me.

Will this work using HD Loader instead of swapmagic?
