March 29, 2009 // 1:49 pm - After some time off since his previous release, this weekend Spanish PS3 developer Ifcaro has released two new non-final PS3 USBLD Loader test versions.

They appear to add both increased compatibility and a language/driver file folder (namely, x:/USBLD) as follows:

Download: USB LOADER v0.3 RC1 / USB LOADER v0.3 RC1+MODHOOK / SPANISH LANGUAGE ARCHIVE (Put in folder X: USBLD USBLDLNG.TXT where X is the letter of the usb disk and the setup screen select Import language file. Same thing with X: USBLD USBD . IRX driver for usb)

Rough translation: ATTENTION: This is NOT the final version. It is only a test version and find bugs etc.

The theme ps2load not finished because I realized that uses images ioprp well protected and is not it out XD. So if you test if the games run without requiring ps2load in this version in case.

I leave with you two versions one with and one without modhook, tell if something's modhook improved compatibility (or the worse) or if it does delete.

PS3 USBLD Loader v0.3 RC1 & ModHook Versions Released!

Does this new usb loader use 2.0 usb drivers and where would i get the usb 2.0 drivers for the ps3? When I downloaded the new usb loader all that came with it was an elf file.

Thanks for update,
I tried normal and modhook version wtih couple of games:
"Street Fighter 3" works well
"PES 2009" works with ps2load
"God of war" doesn't work (I tried ps2load, ioprp300 patch, but it doesn't work)
"God of war 2" doesn't work (I tried ps2load, ioprp300 patch, but it doesn't work)
"Shadow of the Colossus" doesn't work
"silent hill 3" doesn't work
"Metal Gear Solid 3 Subsistence Disk 1" works firstly but then it blanks out at first gameplay screen. It doesn't display gameplay screen.
"Metal Gear Solid 3 Subsistence Disk 2 and 3" doesn't work.

Does anybody know how to work this games especially mgs3 and "god of war" series. I don't know ps2 system very well, but when I searched for this on the net, I found that HDLoader and toxic os works great. Can you patch these programs to works on ps3 with usb?

A few problems.
I got a 60b PS3 so PS2 games work.

1st, out of the 20 games I have on the HDD only about 5 work.
2nd, its SSLLOOWW!. There is no way to watch the game movies as they are so jumpy. Gameplay is ok but still its faster to just put the game in and run it from DVD.

Will support for more games be coming and will it be USB2 supported as it takes ages for a game to load.
I think half the games dont work as its just too slow.

I can try to help you, but you've got to be more specific than that.

Please tell your configuration, including what filepacks you're using, what fw you have, sm version, hdd, flash drive, etc.

Also, share what problems you're actually running into besides cant boot. What do you see on your screen, etc.

Good luck

Did they remove HDD compatibility in this release?

I use Western Digital Elements (WDE1UBK6400E) [649GB] on a EU PS3 60GB, and USBLD 0.3 wont detect it, but 0.2b detects it just fine

any help will be appreciated


USBloader 0.2b is using a built in usbd.irx which doesn't seem compatible with your HDD. version 0.2 should work with the usbd.irx your using for ver 0.1. I think you can also use an external usbd.irx with 0.3RC but I'll have to check to make sure.

@maxpwer222, glad you got it worked out. I would have tried to help but I had no idea what was wrong.
