    Make sure your wiiflow.ini is set up right , if not its not going to work ,

    I have mine set up like this ,

    sd:wiiflow/boxcovers
    sd:wiiflow/covers
    or if you are using fat 32 drive ,
    usb:wiiflow/boxcovers
    usb:wiiflow/covers

    or
    usb:apps/wiiflow/boxcovers
    usb:apps/wiiflow/covers
    you can do it with sdcard too

    Open up the wiiflow.ini and see where the covers are going , then make it the same on your sdcard or usb drive

    I downloaded with wiiflow itself and it put them in
    SD:/wiiflow/boxcovers/
    The full covers that is (all png and named after the Title ID (6 chars))

    I see there's a normal cover in SD:/wiiflow/covers/ as well.

    edit: also, I have this in the wiiflow.ini:
    WARNING! Spoilers inside!

    Don't know if that helps making it work [IMG]

    oh wow I don't even have a wiiflow.ini file, I have a hardrive with 2 partitions, one FAT32 for the gamecoveras and wiiflow folder, so just paste this into a text file and name it wiiflow.ini ? :

    usb:wiiflow/boxcovers
    usb:wiiflow/covers

    Down load the newest wiiflow dol file ,
    put it in apps/wiiflow/boot.dol ,

    Then go to homebrew channel run the wiiflow , then it will make you folders and everything

    Hmm it is not creating any ini file either on my HD in the FAT32 partition or on the SD card, could you SS or copy what is on your wiiflow.ini file so i can edit and make my own? thank you
