I just successfully dumped my BIOS using dumper 2.0, as quick review, used unchipped system with Swap Magic 3.8. Plugged in FAT32 USB stick, booted SM CD, swapped with dumper CD-R from www.pcsx2.net, and waited for DONE message. Piece of cake, kudos to makers!

For some reason, 0.9.6 do not see this new "P2B" format, I had to unpack the file again to use it. Any ideas why?

OK, for dumping memory card I used following:
Booted PS2 with uLE, browsed to mc0, copy all and pasted it so USB (mass) as psuPaste and imported it all to PCSX2's memory card with mymc. Easy when knowing what to do and it also works the other way around, to get saves from PCSX2 to PS2.

Hello Squall, glad to see you around..Yeah, P2B is this new file format which is used from 0.9.4 up, made by BIOS dumper 2.0. It's actually just renamed 7z.

PS2dumperV2 readme:
If you used USB,
copy them to a PC folder along with 7z.exe from cd and run the .bat file
to pack them into a p2b file. Make sure 7z.exe is in the same directory
as the dumped files. The next version of PCSX2 will use *.p2b files instead
of the old bios format. There'll be also a converter for older bios files
to the p2b format, for backward compatibility.
You won't need to throw away your old bios files, but it is recommended to
use the new dumper to get complete information about a PS2. This will help
the efforts to emulate PS2 as much accurate as possible.
