Sorry if it is a stupid question, but I read some forums and nothing it seems similar to my problem, I made all the hack process on my wii mini and I played some games, but The Legend Of Zelda Skyward Sword and mario kart wii does not appears on the gdx loader menu.
There are two windows with empty content....so I supossed those are the two games. Anyone knows a solution to fix this??
Here is a picture showing the problem....

No. I did it with WBFS msnager. If the game are in nkit format I cant transfer. The program show an error. So with nkit program I convert it to iso an then sis the transfer

not sure. I've never used that app, at least that I can remember. I've never bothered converting nkit either, because others have had issues with the resulting iso. I don't remember what those issues are, but there have been posts regarding them.

First, Wii Backup Manager is recommended these days instead of WBFS manager. As is FAT32 32k cluster formatting for the USB drive.

Second, make sure you're converting it correctly with nkit. An nkit.iso will not play on real Wii hardware via a backup loader. You need to restore it to a non-nkit iso for that, you can use nkit for this. Wii backup loaders can play scrubbed images, but not the nkit.iso scrub at this time. FYI the Nintendont gamecube loader can play nkit.iso gamecube games.

Yes I download the 4gb Nkit and converted the nkit.gcz to iso with that program, I don´t remember exactly why I am using the wbfs manager but may be is because I am using a Wii mini.......I am going to try download another version of the game, may be PAL dont get me problems

WBFS Manager will corrupt games when adding new games after deleting them assuming you are using a WBFS formatted drive. You should not be using a WBFS formatted drive these days, it's not recommended anymore.

I just follow a guide for the wii mini to run backups, and in that tutorial used wbfs manager. For run backups on my wii mini I used gdx loader, so....can I use other format and program and be compatible with gdx loader?

Do you mean USB Loader GX? It supports WBFS, FAT32 and NTFS, but FAT32 is recommended.

I think you mean USB Loader GX. Yes, Wii Backup Manager and a FAT32 32k drive are compatible with USB Loader GX.

I dont kow why but I download the same image for third time and it works, may be the WBFS manager sometimes copy the game corrupted or something like that......
