    Hello I am using USBLOADERGX to play my backups from a hdd and WBFS manager 2.5 to add/remove them. I recently purchased a copy of Super Mario Galaxy and naturally backed up the disc first thing. The loader said it finished backing up the disc but it never actually made it to 100%. Now when I attempt to load a game it goes straight to a black screen.

    I assumed this had something to do with SMG "finishing" pre-maturely, so I fired up WDFS Manager 2.5 to remove the offender, and upon removal I get

    and the backup is not removed, and I still get the black screen.

    SO..on to WDFS TOOLS

    I read on another forum that you can use a hex editor to change the 0x00 after byte 12 in the 63rd sector to 0x01's per the number of backups that you have. I fired up the hex editor and got this...

    Why 0x03's instead of 0x01's? Should I change them? Am I missing something here? Thanks for any help at all.

    Just DL'd and WBFS manager 3.0 produces the same error.

    edit: Ver 3.0.1 produces the same error.

    OK after days of back reading here's what I've got. [​IMG]

    When I tried to backup SMG and the backup didn't finish, it apparently corrupted the structure of my disk. The only way that I could find to fix this was to remove the disks with invalid or overlapped blocks, using wiimms tools, as such.

    CODE./wwt FSCK -p /dev/sdb2 --repair=ALL

    It was that easy. [​IMG]

    Now whats left of my backups still play and I can use the rest of the disk to re-make backups of everything I lost, MINUS Super Mario Galaxy.

    I'm off to the WDFS Manager forums! [​IMG]

    Plz mark as solved. Thx.
