v04.14.01 Changelog:

  • Online mM update file is down to 2.5MB and from now on will require prior BASE/FULL installation (as of now 04.14.00)
  • DO NOT UPDATE UNLESS YOU HAVE 04.14.00 INSTALLED
  • Checking for game updates will also check GAMEI folder on external USB drives for installed game data
  • Using NTFS/PFS driver with configured USB.CFG allows for any number of partitions
  • If a broken cover is detected it is re-downloaded from the update server
  • Fixed cover issues in 8x4 (and other display modes) when cover is missing or broken
  • Added 300 new covers to the update server (over 5600 PS3 game covers available now)
  • [* Install Package Files] function in mM supports:


  • up to 256 pkg files
  • split pkg files
  • sorting
  • queued PKG indication (in red)
  • multipart (split) PKG indication (in yellow)
  • copy/transfer progress
  • Scanned locations: /dev_usb*** /dev_hdd0 /dev_bdvd in /PKG /packages and root folders
  • Split files format: .0 - .63 / .66600 - .66663 / .001 - .064
  • Supports both "PSN (Bubble)" and "Standard" install methods

Update: multiMAN ver 04.14.01 UPD CEX (20121130).pkg (2.44 MB) / multiMAN ver 04.14.01 UPD CEX (20121130).pkg (Mirror)

Here it is - please test and report back. It should allow for any number of NTFS partitions if properly set in USB.CFG (otherwise 2 partitons only). It should allow detecting multiple hdds with same vendor/device ids (for resetting usb bus).

The issue is that mM can't reconnect them in the proper order because both have the same IDs and it can't distinguish them. Your only workaround is to connect only the drive you want to play from. Do you see both drives disconnect/reconnect when doing the usb bus reset (if they have lights and are unpowered you can see).

It is not related to multiMAN. Last week I tried to replace the libusbd.sprx, libio.sprx and other .sprx files - I used these from 3.55 and replaced the ones on 4.21 with ABSOLUTELY no result... I got the same issue so it must be something else.

After a lot of tests my final conclusion was that the drive connect order is what's important. When the PS3 boots it usually initializes /dev_usb000 first and that's why games from it work if you don't touch anything. The solution for now is:

1) Disconnect all drives
2) Connect the drive which has the game
3) Connect the remaining drives

The connect/disconnect is only possible by specifying the vendor/device IDs and as in your case - both disconnect and both reconnect at the same time which breaks the procedure. If it was working properly they'll be reconnected with 5 seconds delay from each.

Sorry for being outdated on the PS3 scene developments, but i'm just back home after several months and only now switching on my fat PS3.

Yes as long as you use the CEX version you should be fine i have the same 3.55 kmeaw you have and i am currently running multiman 4.12 hope this helps

2 sharks: use the CEX version (this is for normal console), DEX is for Debug / test consoles.

Changelog: mM 04.14.00

Changes related only to 4.20-4.30 CEX/DEX CFWs:

BD-Mirror:

  • BD-Mirror option now supports USB HDDs mounted as /dev_usb000 to /dev_usb127
  • BD-Mirror option uses different approach now and doesn't move the PS3_GAME folder of USB games and doesn't modify the mount table
  • After using BD-Mirror for USB games, the usb drive is still accessible in XMB (Video/Music/Photo/Saves)
  • Improved disc-less support with BD-Mirror option enabled

USB Ports issues:

  • When using more than one USB device mM will disconnect/reconnect them from/to the USB bus in the proper order
  • This fixes games that crash when started from USB when multiple devices are connected

NTFS/PFS usage:

  • It is now possible to use any NTFS usb drive without configuring its Vendor/Device IDs in USB.CFG
  • When switching to NTFS/PFS mode use only one USB HDD connected (mM supports up to 2 partitions: FAT32+NTFS, NTFS+NTFS, FAT32+FAT32)
  • To access the contents of NTFS drives use mmOS and /pvd_usb000 /pvd_usb001 (games from NTFS drives won't show in other display modes)

Other:

  • Better support for data CD/DVD/BD discs and improved "Enable Direct Disc Access" function
  • Improved BD-Mirror function for games on internal HDD
  • Games started from mmOS icons/shortcuts handle BD-Mirror/Ext.Game Data options properly
  • Online update server updated (5320 PS3 game covers and 3420 PS1/PS2 game covers)
  • Updated showTIME media player (for mM) to version 04.01.264
  • Updated 8 translation files

Install Package Files (standalone application):

  • Supports split pkg files named in the following format: filename.pkg.0 -> filename.pkg.63, filename.pkg.001 -> filename.pkg.064, filename.pkg.66600 -> filename.pkg.66663
  • Upon launch/refresh the following folders are scanned: /dev_usb***/, /dev_usb***/PKG, /dev_usb***/packages, /dev_hdd0/PKG, /dev_hdd0/packages
  • Updated stDISC application (better drive reset timing and support for 4.30CFW)
  • Updated gameDATA, bdRESET and lastGAME applications to support 4.30CFW
  • Updated showTIME media player (standalone) to version 04.01.264 (CEX/DEX)

The showtime version provided with mM as standalone acts as the build-in one so it returns to mM. If you wish to quit to XMB either use the official build or use {PS} button -> Quit to XMB.

About NTFS - if you previously configured usb.cfg just stick to it. Without USB.CFG only two partitions will be available - that's it.
