    I have Cfg Loader all set up, and everything works except the cover images. I download them (via Cfg on my Wii) and can see the correct cover art files on the SD card when I put it in my computer, but the covers don't show up in the Loader. While they're downloading, the picture of the Wii game case on the left of the screen becomes a nasty-looking rectangle filled with random lines... I have no idea what's going on. I could download and see the cover art when I used USBLoader-GX, but I can't get it to work in Cfg. Any ideas?

    Are you using cfg v70 mod 51? This is the best version. Space on SD card? I actually download all images in CFG and because GX you can specify the paths, use CFG file structure for GX too.

    Yeah, that's the version I'm using. I can download all the images just fine, and the file structure is sd:\usb-loader\covers with all the appropriate sub-directories. I can see the images when I use the Configurator for Cfg, so I know they work, but Cfg just doesn't recognize them. It does show the 3D cover for Brawl and Geometry Wars: Galaxies, but only the 3D covers, and even when it does, it should be showing the 2D covers.

    Hmm..def sounds like something screwed up. You use WiiBackupMamanager, right? Download all the covers there (cache included) and then copy all the files / images over to the SD card. Other than that, unless you have any special settings, remove the config and settings files in usb-loader and start it again from fresh.

    Yeah, I've tried that. :/ I've determined it's not the problem of the images, because I've obtained the images using Wii Backup Manager and the Configurator and Cfg itself and gotten the same images every time. I'll try starting fresh again sometime later today and post the results, hopefully that solves it.

    your cover must be 1024 x 680 or 512 x 340 try resizing them if they are not, it happened to me before with 1090 x 680 images...maybe this is you'r problem.

    That didn't do it either (they were already 1024 x 680, and resizing them to 512 x 340 didn't change anything). So it does show the covers for Xenoblade Chronicles, Twilight Princess, Geometry Wars Galaxies, and Mario Kart Wii (and had shown them all along), but it shows the European cover for Xenoblade, and that image isn't even on my SD card... I have no idea where it's getting it. Also it only shows the Full Covers for those games, and none of the other types of covers.

    Try deleting the "cache" folder sd:\usb-loader\covers\cache (or just the games with the wrong covers from within it - RMGE01.ccc for Mario Galaxy, etc).
