    thank you dr. clipper! I have the forwarder in and its a blessing! hehe. I read the aprt on needing to set the ID which in this case is indeed return_to_channel=DCFG. And it mentions of going into the wii menu to set this value. I am unfamiliar of how to do this exact part. I could not find that info on the link. Thanks.

    I think it's more a problem on my end than on yours.

    I already had problems back in the days of the first usb loaders and had to create my partition through hermes loader. I don't really remember how I managed to get the 360 partition on the drive either [​IMG]

    But I know for sure that my usb enclosure for my hdd is really old and I will probably change it for something more efficient.

    I also have no way to get you that boot sector as for now [​IMG]

    edit : I tried formatting the whole drive to fat32 (also tried ntfs) to be able to use it at the same time on my xbox and on my wii, but I get the same problem (RAW partition seen as fat1 (even for ntfs)). I used windows disk management for the ntfs formatting and easeus partition manager for the fat32 formatting.

    edit 2 : I don't understand really why, but on my 2nd reformatting in fat32, the whole thing just started to work. The mysteries of IT ...

    See my first reply in this post. You don't set it in the Wii Menu, you add it to the config.txt file which resides in the usb-loader directory of Cfg on your SD/USB.

    My guess is that the partition table was somehow screwed up and I was hoping to be able to look at the mbr sector on your drive it would help explain things, but now that it's formatted we'll never know [​IMG]
    But if it works fine now it doesn't matter [​IMG]
    Btw, what do the partition selection screen say now, does it display it as P#1 FAT... or RAW FAT?

    Read a bit about easeus partition manager and some auto mbr fixing seems to have done the trick, my mbr was somehow screwed from the beginning but all is good now.

    Keep up the good work [​IMG]

    The partition selection says P#1 FAT1

    I'm having problems with New Carnival Games.

    It just goes through the opening credits and then hangs at a white screen.

    I got it to work once last night, but not this morning.

    The time it worked I had turned on ISO reload blocking, but the nextmorning it would not work with the same settings.

    It is a PAL copy on an NTSC system.

    I've tried setting the video type to system default and forcing it to NTSC and neither worked.

    I've tried some other settings that I can't remember right now, but they didn't work either.

    Any help is appreciated.

    My bonus question is how do I add cover art to a game that it just a mod of another game? (e.g., a modded Guitar Hero game)?

    Thank you!!!

    I just recently started using the return to channel option and it works exactly as intended but with one adverse side effect

    while playing a game, if I just hold power, to power off the console, it returns me to configurable usb loader instead of powering off the wii, this only started happening after I set up the return to channel option in the config.txt

    I get this too without using return_to_channel. The Wii will often reset instead of powering off. It's something to do with the way certain games shut down interacting with the cIOS and you just have to deal with it, switching the Wii off again once it returns to Cfg.

    return to channel is a godsend for this and i thank you for pointint me in the right direction Dr clipper. Its very nice after you come out of a game, if you arent done playing to be able to load something else.

    if it has to do with how games shut down... shouldn't it only affect those using the return_to_channel feature?? My logic is, if u don't have return_to_channel setup, u would not have loaded/exited a game just before launching cfg usb loader in the first place

    anyways, its definitely not a huge deal, just thought I'd mention it. And since it sounds like u guys are aware of it, I'm satisfied

    dd for windows (which is a cygwin port):
    http://uranus.chrysocome.net/linux/rawwrite/dd-old.htm
    You may also use the Cygwin-Environment with a lot of linux-tools for windows (http://www.cygwin.com/).

    The default URLs should work just fine. Perhaps you should check WiiTDB to see if the covers are available or not.

    If there is no back cover, it simply mean that the full cover isn't scanned yet.

    I'm in the same boat, I assume that DCFG is the wrong ID, so how do I find the correct one, The forwarder I use is the one supplied by ModMii.

    dude, the name of the forwarder channel/wad downloaded by modmii is:
    usbloader(s)-(emulators)-IDCL.wad
    if you still can't figure out the title ID from that, its "IDCL"
