    i have got a 8 gb usb stick and am using cfg loader 69,cause only 8 gb i can only get 2 wii games on it but it works great, so i brought a 16 gb usb stick off ebay,have used the same cfg loader 69 and using back up manager excatly the same tried to put 5 random wii games on it, when i put in wii ,my wii only detetects that there is only 1 game and not 5,my question is, is it cause its a cheap 16 usb stick and its not compatable with wii,or is there a different set up from a 8gb stick to a 16 gb stick,my thinking was that 16 is twice as big 8 so may be 4 or 5 games,should i just buy a compat hard drive like western digital or am i missing something and doing something wrong,many thanks ,my 8 gb works great but y not 16 gb

    If one game works the stick is compatible, the rest should work too.
    There are multiple possibility:
    - Filesystem corruption: try scanning for FS errors
    - Problems in copying: try riping it again
    - Fake stick: some sticks claim to be bigger then they are and thus lose data

    yes I got that, did you try what I suggested?
    (scanning for Filesysytem corruption and ripping the game again)
