    @FIX94 Thanks for this handy tool! As unreliable as my ISP is, this is a real time saver! I'll have all my games installed on my hard drive drive soon.

    I accidentally found out that this tool, and really homebrew in general, does not like GPT formatted drives. The flash drive I used got formatted GPT a while back and I sorta forgot about it. Anyway, changing it back to MBR was a pretty easy fix thanks to good old GParted. Just a quick tip for anyone who happens to have this issue.

    Also, happy new year guys!

    I think there were a few points early on in some of the instructions for setting up homebrew to ensure a "MSDOS" partition for your FAT32. Can be easily missed. When I had an issue reading a new SD card, I quickly checked in gparted and corrected it. I think some larger SD cards come with GPT + exfat. It's not sufficient enough to just change exfat to FAT32.

    you can't merge the files "to" sd card, because it's FAT32 and file size is limited to 4GB.
    you need to copy your files to NTFS or exFAT partition first, or you could use a tool which can extract the game's files from a multi-wud format without merging them.

    Navigate to where you downloaded wud2app and double click the batch file that opens the cmd prompt for you and run:
    Code:
    wud2app h:\wudump\wudump_folder
    Obviously replace h: with your SD drive letter and wudump_folder to the folder that contains your wudump files. He's made it incredibly easy.

    When? Clicking on the batch file gives you that error? Trying to run wud2app gives you that error?

    I'm starting to think you might be trolling or something. You barely make any sense at all and honestly this process can't possibly get any easier outside of having a GUI. Even then I think you would struggle to launch the GUI. You literally need to open a cmd shell and run wud2app, giving the path to your dumped files as an argument. If wud2app.exe isn't recognized as a file. You must not be in the wud2app directory OR you are seriously doing something wrong. Sorry but your vague descriptions of your problem arent helping much. Can you post a screenshot so we can see what it is you aren't doing right?

    'G:\wudump\WEP-P-AECP' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

    Hold your tongue all you want, you seem to be the one struggling here. Youve gotten very clear instructions. Again, without a screenshot I'm just guessing but by the looks of it you are trying to EXECUTE G:\wudump\WEP-P-AECP. This isn't the correct procedure as this is the location of your dump files, nothing to execute here. You are suppose to be executing wud2app.exe and passing in this path as an argument. COPY AND PASTE THIS:
    Code:
    wud2app g:\wudump\wep-p-aecp
    This is assuming you've provided us with the correct path to your dump. My dump folders all had WUP-P-XXXX instead of WEP-P-XXXX but that could be because it's a different region maybe?

    I'm telling you, its suppose to be:
    Code:
    wud2app g:\wudump\wup-p-aecp
    But you posted that it was WEP, instead of WUP. Re read all my replies

    Be stubborn then. You are WRONG the correct ID is in fact WUP-P-AECP for PAL COD BO2 but whatever just keep skimming over responses intended to help you with very clear instructions. You are right I guess, you are the only person to EVER get a copy of COD BO2 PAL that is WEP-P-AECP. BTW you can throw ANY random path at wud2app and it will spit that error. It can't find/open the file because you arent pointing it in the right place. I'm done helping now so good luck. IF you ever figure it out maybe you could try wepinstaller to get it installed on your console. :P There isn't a single title with a product code beginning with WEP

    So now, even you know that too!

    Please start again, and provide the following:

    Double-click open_cmd.bat
    In that command prompt, enter
    Code:
    dir g:\wudump /s
    Copy and paste all of the text in the command prompt window (with that window active, press alt-space, then e, then s, then enter. Paste into your reply)
