Added SD/MS/CF entries in Retro

Some other improvements related to copying/scanning/verifying/etc
multiMAN "minimal"/"bare" version available (read below)
Few weeks ago some people requested a 'minimalistic' version of multiMAN. For them I created this package (linked above).
This is a skinned down version (BARE). It can be installed on any PS3 without the need of a previous mM installation. It is like a "base" but the differences are:
Simple theme (2MB) (no theme music)
No GUI translations (English only)
No user fonts (only system fonts will be used)
No PS1/PS2/PSP names/IDs database (no game names will be displayed)
AIOMOD not included (old BD-Mirror method for USB games will be used on 4.21+CFWs)
Do not use it unless you're the one who asked for it. BARE can be installed on any firmware for normal users who don't really need any of the listed above features. Of course NONE of these features are present in other BUMs so everyone should be happy.
It can be installed on top of your current mM if you wish to test it (you will not notice much difference, because you already have the fonts/translations/aiomod/themes installed).
This bare version is suitable for:
English speaking users
All 3.41/3.55 (non Cobra/TB) firmwares
All 4.21+ firmwares (disc may be required when booting bd-mirror USB games if AIOMOD.BIN is not present)
Weeners who complain all the time that 130MB is too much for a stupid PS3 homebrew like mM
I hope you like the new mM logo fade in/out and the boot sound (you can delete or replace USRDIR/sys/BOOT.MP3 if you wish) and the nice way game posters (PIC1.PNG) fade-in while browsing the list.
If you wish you can update online (start mM while holding L2+R2 and update). Let me know if this is fixed. Thanks for the report!
Update: Here is the updated version of lastGAME 4.01 application:
Can somebody help me with my ps3 rebug 4.21, with broken bdrom? The problem is that when i take a game from ext HDD with multiMAN, the game goes blank, and the multiMAN quits to XMB, but when i take the app_home , the ps3 goes blank again and do nothing...
deank, keep up the good work. Just some quick questions about backing up games to bluray:
1) Can I burn the game folder as data blu ray using imgburn to the root, or do I need to put in a special directory like /Games(z) etc.
2) Can Multiman recognize multiple games? In essence, using a blu ray media as a small external hard drive?
3) Are there any compatibility issues with some games..or most seems to work fine?
Any help is appreciated. I wanted to backup the games on blu ray, but media is expensive so I didn't feel like wasting media.
