I am facing a similar problem. It works fine for awhile, then all of a sudden one day it won't auto-detect the NTFS drive anymore saying the USB.CFG is missing. This has happened twice now, and each time I had to delete and re-install mM completely for it to read my NTFS again.
Each time I re-install, I use mM V4.18.00 BASE CEX, then update it with V4.19.02
The only other two files I use during the install are COLOR.INI and OPTIONS.INI
Jus very annoying to re-install every time this happens
same problem here, but I just installed Multiman on brand new console so it never worked before, FAT32 working good. NTFS just show loading icon forever when I trying to enter to pvd_usb000 or pvd_usb001 , why I see 000 and 001 ? this is ok ? I have only 1 HDD connected.
