So you can't copy the iso's to the HD on the PS3 ?
Not at this time, mainly because all this is... is a way to use the existing PS2 USB Extreme/USB Advance application on the PS3 (which was coded to run the games via USB drive).

Getting it to run them from the PS3's HDD would likely not only require the app's source code (which sadly isn't available) but also the ability to run stored PS2 game images from the retail PS3's HDD.

Can somebody please tell me whitch files to put on my USB stick and in which directories ?
you need the swap magic discs everytime you want to load a game.

just remane usbld02b.elf to smboot1.elf put it in the usb pen, in a folder called SWAPMAGIC, then load swap magic, and when it loads, press UP+L2

then usbld will load

the iso must be prepared with USBUTIL

i've heard swap magic is very picky about the usb devices, i still didn't find one that works, but one of them already showed the games listed, so i think i explained you well

cheers and sorry for my english too, i'm portuguese

Can i put the games on my PS3's HD and load them from there ?

Should i do the SM trick with every game i want to load/play ? Or once you have copied to the HD there is no more swap trick ?
I don't have a SM yet,but before i buy one,i want to know i don't need to do to the swap every time i want to play a game.
I now have HD Loader on my PS2 and that works great.

So if the same could happen again on my PS3 (whitout loading swap discs every time) that would be great !

Sorry for my english but i'm from Belgium.
