    I've got a similar problem except I can't get anything to load off an NTFS formatted HDD. Same 'Switching to..' message and glowing slot but it just hangs there.

    I have the latest Configurable USB Loader and I cannot get Animal Crossing City Folk cheats to work (yes, I have Ocarina cheats enabled, the cheat(s) I want selected, and the file saved to SD). Help!

    Yes, it's the same. You could have also tried without waiting for an answer as it will first ask before copying anything.

    An other question: I thought there was some way to dump some DVD game into SD or USB disk directly from Wii.
    I can't find this option anymore.
    Any tip?

    Thanks that's what I was looking for, it doesn't work on NTFS you're right.
    I'll wait for an update to do this.

    Excellent tool!
    I have just tried it out on 2 files created with wbfs_file versions 1.9 and 2.1 to confirm that 2.1 really does not cause file fragmentation:

    wbfs_file 1.9:

    == FragExt Fragmentation Report ==
    File: D:\t19\RHAP01_PARTY_PACK_for_REVOLUTION.iso
    Size: 4.37 GB (102 MB on Disk)
    Fragments: 388

    I wouldn't wait for an Update...this will take a loooong time, and with loooong time, I mean around some months. Seriously...NTFS is only for the people that have already their games ripped/on the PC...not for retail users...get FAT32 for that.

    For anyone who is interested. I am currently in the process of rewriting Simple WBFS File Manager.

    It currently uses the wbfs_file 2.1 for conversion.
    It has been completely rewritten "again" from scratch, now supports lotsa new stuff you will have to wait to see [​IMG]

    I will say it has been renamed to Wii Game Manager and is themed to be pretty, heres a little preview. Keep in mind it is still a work in progress and the overall look may change.

    Just to let you know

    NTFS compressed games get found, but if started I get this error:
    ntfs getf: -31
    Error: get_frag_list: 31

    It would have been so nice, copy on hdd, ready


    Is there a way to easy rename bla bla bla.iso into gameid.iso
    I only saw how to do it from iso to wbfs..but i dont like to create wbfs files...

    move_files.sh does rename all .iso files in a folder if you change it a bit, see my previous post about it.
    About the compressed files error: How much is your drive fragmented? I didn't test compressed files, yet but this is an error which also occours if your dirve is too much fragmented.

    Looks Nice, you might want to start your own topic, it may get more attention.

    I will probably do that when the app is complete. This originally started out just as a small GUI for wbfs_file and has been growing ever since. I can't believe how many requests ppl have for things [​IMG]

    This means you're using compressed files on ntfs.
    On windows drive properties there's an option:
    "Compress this drive to save disk space"
    Disable that.
    You can do that on a per-file basis too, under file properties / advanced.
    Both compression and encryption have to be disabled, they are not supported.

    Just wanted to drop in and say that the progress on this loader is great. Currently, I used wiiscrubber to trim all my .iso files and then I moved them to an NTFS partition. All my games play fine this way, and as a result I only need one set of game files for all my needs. No longer need I a set on my usb hard drive for my Wii and a set on my desktop computer. Thank and I look forward to whatever updates may come next.

    Brawl+ codeset support would be nice, [​IMG]

    Thats what I told

    I tested if it works, and it does not work
    Now I have to think how to progess

    wbfs file format disallows usage of WiiScrubebr and direct burning
    ISO uncompressed is very large
    ISO ntfs compressed was a good compromise on my backup disc, hoped I can use it now
    but unsupported for the moment
