This problem has happened to many users. I also had this problem along time ago. I think some files in the download package are corrupted.Iīm not exactly sure whatīs causing the problem but Iīm confident we can resolve it.
I donīt think the problem is the usb device especially the psp
1st, make sure you have the right snes elf. it should be the snes_usb 0.2.4 version. Now I really think the problem is file corruption. Delete the config.dat file that you have in the psxloader folder. Also delete the BOOT.IMG that is inside the B?DATA-SYSTEM folder. Restart psxloader, it will creat a new boot.img and confg.dat files. you will have to go to the select menu on psxloader and select the right options again for the 1st time you load the elfs.
Hopefully that fixed the problem. another thing that could be causing the corruption is the lack of an icon in the bedata folder. Iīm guessing you donīt have one and that folder shows up as corrupt data in the XMB? Iīm not sure if that causes corruption but I did have problems with both Guitarfun and keylauncher files getting corrupted. If your still having problems you might want to make a new vmc, backup the elfs you need and delete everything from you usb. download the easy psxloader setup package.
@EVERYBODY just starting out for the 1st time or having problems
Easy psxloader setup
The readme is included but here it is:
1.Copy these 3 folders to your pendrive.
Smboot0 is uLaunch.elf. Smboot2 is psxloader. The supplied usbd.irx is from Launch.elf 3.41
You still need to put the 3 ps2bios files(libsd, xmcman,xmcserv) inside the module folder for psxloader
2.Boot SwapMagic and start Smboot0(uLaunch). uLaunch uses the circle button to accept and the cross button to cancel.
Ok, once uLaunch boots up, go to FileBrowser and press circle.
Go to :mass and press circle. thatīs your usb device.
select the folder BADATA-SYSTEM(for USA ps3) or BEDATA-SYSTEM(Europe, pal ps3) and press R1.
The small option menu will pop-up. Select COPY.
Goto mc:0 and press circle to enter the memory card.
Press R1 again, select the option McPaste and press circle. This will copy the needed folder into the memory card.
you can delete it after from your pendrive. you only need it on the memcard.
Thatīs it. your ready for psxloader.
3. Restart Swapmagic and select SMBOOT2.
this will start psxloader. you should see the elfs that you have in the psxloader folder.
goto snes.elf and hit the SELECT button for the psxloader option menu.
option D for SNES and F for PGEN.
You can make folders on your usb to put the roms in. once youīve started the emulator you should be able to
select the roms from the pendrive. you can also put them on the memorycard.
thatīs about it. good luck.
This turned out to be a long post so Iīll be back in a bit with more ps2homebrew.
