    Hi, I'm having a little problem.

    I've removed some games with wiibackup manager. ( 40 roughly ).
    After that i tried to add a few new games.

    After a few seconds the manager lags and tells me I have to wait 2 hours before it's copied.
    Extracting from the drive works fine . aswell as deleting. Putting new games on the drive does'nt work any more.

    Is there anything I can do?

    1. use different manager

    2. wait 2h

    3. check hw
    -different cable
    -badblocks (-vns) or whatever the windows guys use instead

    4. scrap wbfs and use fat

    *1 does'nt work, same problem
    *2 Even after that time it does'nt proceed, so not an option.
    *3 if you read the post you'de see the cable is fine. only copying to WBFS does'nt work. Hardware is fine.
    *4 I'd rather try serious options first, before deleting all my games. Besides Id rather find where the problems come from ánd try to fix them.
    Really an "end of the line option".


    I've tried Wiims wtt.

    After running the check and repairs, the drive is working 100% again.

    I only have ONE question left. Look at this log file:

    * Check free blocks table.

    glad you fixed it

    but the source of the problem is still there
    either faulty hw or one of the progs you use to access it has some serious bugs
    Id suggest updating them all

    and btw

    just that reading from some area works does not mean the hardware works
    another area might still be defect
    you have to test the whole disk and writing too

    I did not want you to delete all your games
    you said extracting worked so I expected you to salvage the games first

    Was'nt intending to offend you in any way! Thank you for your help!

    But I think you might be right....
    How to check a WBFS drive?

    copy all your games to your computer and reformat it using FAT32
    you can lose all of them because WBFS is very unstable
