    I get a get_frag_list: -500 error with Configurable USB Loader 56 with .wbfs on NTFS hard disk drive (1 GB Seagate Desktop Drive). I can play (most) of the games on USB Loader GX v1.0 r866. The drive is compressed except for the wbfs folder

    Wii: v3.3E softmoded to 4.1E with 2xx cIOS'es installed, PimpMyWii said everything is up-to-date, as MultiModManager (upgrade and checks happened within this month)
    DVD Drive: can play burned DVD's
    Disk: 1 GB USB Seagate Desktop Drive with NTFS, compressed except wbfs folder

    Sorry that I put as many information as I can, my spelling is correct and I already googled for that error message and found nothing

    Why not use the latest usb loader gx rev 938?
    Use Fat 32, cios 249 56 as base. and it will work perfectly trust me [​IMG]
    And yeah set beta revisions to off so it wont crash when you click update.

    That error means the file is too fragmented.
    What tool did you use to put the .wbfs file on to the drive?

    I used Wii Backup Manager 0.3.4. CFG reads the files, and USB Loader GX sees and plays the games (not all of the of course). I don't think the disk is the problem (I use WiiMC to view movies etc)

    oggzee says it means the file is too fragmented, so delete the .wbfs file and recreate it using wbfs_file.

    If the game works, the problem is with "Wii Backup Manager"

    I guess the disk is almost full and rather fragmented.
    What size is the disk and how much free space is there?
    You can try to run defragmentation of the disk and see if that helps (I expect it should)
    Or you can try to de-fragment just that single file with this utility:
    http://www.mutexed.com/code/FragExt/
    Install this and then on right click you can defragment that specific file.
    This is faster than defragmenting the whole drive...

    Please let me know if any of this helps.

    I downloaded CFG 58a and USB Loader GX 938, and nothing changed. The disk is 1 TB (910 GB actually) and has 120 GB free. Most games are playable by both versions of GX (866 & 938) and as I checked more games a few are played by CFG (56 & 58a). In CFG 58a the difference is now that is says "too many frags - 20000 frags". I have Hermes cIOS.

    I will check the de-fragmentation matter as I haven't done it for over a year. Though the games that don't play with GX don't play either from WBFS or NTFS formated flash (no possibility of fragmentation there)

    Another problem is that games that the Compatibility Gudie says they should play they don't, they only play via DVD, neither via NTFS, nor FAT32, not even WBFS formated flash disks. And that is with both CFG and GX
