    I think that it would be better join the two partitions in only one with NTFS format.You could access it from Windows and the Wii too.

    Yeah! I agree with jesquinas! I'm now having only one NTFS partition in my 500G HDD,and put wii games in the WBFS folder. At the same time i can also store/manage windows files in other folders.

    CFG loader deal with NTFS partitions pretty well, I tried several HDDs (60G, 100G, 320G, 640G, 1.5TG) without a problem. Computers is OK of course. But other Wii Homebrews such as FTPii, WiiMC and WiiXplorer, seems not stable on NTFS, they only recognize some of them, or sometimes can and sometime can't recognize some of them. Even worse, one of my HDD (320GB) can be recognized by above 3 homebrews, until one day I put a new game on the WBFS folder, then it can not be recognized anymore. So for Gaming and computer applications only, you can stick to NTFS with CFG loader. It may also depend on the type of HDD you have.

    Been using 'Configurable USB Loader' without problem until I decided to use a 1 TB external HDD for storage.
    My HDD is a Seagate 'Expansion' using an ST310005EXD101-RK drive.
    Eventually got my Wii to see the loader but only by first formatting as FAT32, splitting the drive, deleting the proposed useful section then creating it as a new partition as primary then formatting as usual with WBFS Manager.
    Installed some games to try but was unable to get software to load game either through channel or HBC.
    Got as far as

    [+] Booting Wii game, please wait .....
    IOS (249)

    Then the Wii froze.

    This was with any game.
    No problems before with IOS 249.

    Tried USB Loader GX and this had no difficulty in loading IOS 249.

    Changed single game to IOS 222 and game played successfully.
    Changed config.txt to load all games using IOS 222 and success.

    Has anyone else had difficulty with IOS 249 and will using IOS 222 cause me any long term difficulties?

    IOS249 is using a different loading process and it has a different USB HDD compatility. It could be that your HDD doesn't work correctly with cfg-loader in combination with IOS249. You can simply use hermes cIOSes like IOS222 what you are currently using, it's more stable than IOS249 and it seems like it's compatible with your HDD, so you won't get long term difficulties.

    i've used 222 since way back when rev15 came out. it seemed after updating from 249rev14 to rev 15+ it wouldnt load any of my games; not until i tried converting everything over to FAT32 but by that point hermes cios did such a great job i never reverted back. I think i only have to use rev249 for WW/VC USB Loading and 250 for COD:BO, everything else runs under 222 [​IMG] definitely the best unless otherwise needed.

    Is there a site or list where I can find out all the game ID's? I just started using CFG with NTFS, and I see you need to have the game id in the file name.

    Thanks for any help.

    EDIT: I know of downloading the titles.txt from WiiTDB, but I was just wondering if there was a site that had a constant updated list that you can just look at and not have to download.

    You can use the Wii BackupManager and add your .iso or .wbfs files, there - it'll show you the ID and proper name.

    You can either update directly in the Wii while running the app or look for all updated files in page 1 of this post.

    Well, just ask yourself this thing: are your games playing flawlessly? If yes, you don't need anything more.

    All the slots that give the message "not installed" represent the opportunity to install different cIOSes in different slots, but they do not have to be filled. [​IMG]

    Hello, I tried to update to 65 from the wii in CFG but then when I boot CFG it doesn't load now so I had to load back 61 from my SD.

    What do I need to do differently to install 65?

    Go here and download what you need (just the dol, all the package etc...)

    But: what is the problem that CFG gives you, exactly?

    until I update titles.txt, I cannot start loader anymore. It's just freeze at title screen
    Delete titles.txt and problem solved

    How are you running the app? Through HBC or through a forwarder? I'm asking this because the latest official forwarder requires IOS58 installed and if you don't have it, all you get is also a black screen on loading.

    Hope this helps.
