    When i rip my games from original CD to a USB hard disk by the WII console, itry to get the covers as well.

    When trying to get the covers my WII crashes all the time. What could it be? Is the site where the covers reside down?

    Is it possible to download the covers myself and put them somewhere on my usb disk or sd card?

    What are you using (USB Loader GX, WiFlow, CFG) to run the games from the USB drive?

    Im am using both Configurable USB Loader and USB Loader GX, neither of them work. They initialise the network connection and them the screens freezes. I did an internet connection test in the WII system menu, and it succeeded.

    What could it be that no cover gets downloaded?

    Thx, Johan

    Thx fot the reply,

    - The usb loaders are on my SD card (it seems better if they are on the usb device, so they won't be there when the USB is switched off, won't they?). Should i just move the apps from the SD card to the USB device in the same folderstrcture for that to work?

    - How do i see if something is in a "locked" position and how to unblock it?

    Some more details about my setup.
    - IOS236
    - I ripped my original games to the USB evice with configurable USB loader.
    They are in:
    usb://wbfs/R25PWR_LEGO Harry Potter_ Years 1-4/R25PWR.wbfs
    usb://wbfs/R25PWR_LEGO Harry Potter_ Years 1-4/R25PWR_LEGO_Harry_Potter__Years_1-4.txt

    usb://wbfs/RBKP69_Boom Blox/RBKP69/RBKP69.wbfs
    usb://wbfs/RBKP69_Boom Blox/RBKP69/RBKP69_Boom_Blox.txt

    etc...

    exactly version of cfg is?

    your usb device is a Fat32?

    for lock position, remove SD and take a look. it's easy to see that.

    my suggest is to update your cfg version and i'm almost sure that your cIOS are obsolete. so update also them.sorry but now I have to do and i haven't time to tell you more specific info about step to follow.

    you can use wiiDownloader ("mod your wii" feature) for update everything.

    remember to check also "configurable usb loader"

    It was stupid! My modem/router was child protecting the IP address of the WII, and could not connect to the sites. Anyway, i used Actars WIIDownloader to update my system. many Thanks.

    So after following actar's (thx) advice everything went fine... for a week. I'll try to describe what happened.


    1. Since i didn't use Configurable USB Loader, i removed that program. Not by removing the files from my SD card, but remove/delete button when you start the program.

    2. After that everything stayed working correctly, so i guessed i did the right thing.

    3.Yesterday i noticed that all games on the USB HDD worked fine except Skylanders Giant, where the portal was not recognized.

    4. After seraching the internet i found that i had to instal "d2x -8-final" (not sure of the spelling)

    5. When starting MMM mod manager, i noticed my WII remote didn't work anymore in MMM/bootmii.

    6. I thought it was because of removing CGF USB Loader, so i tried copying the files back to my SD Card.

    7. Still no WII remote in MMM

    8. As i saw BOOTmii when starting MMM, I re-copied the Bootmii files to the SD card.

    9. Still no WII remote in MMM, but my console flickered several times and after that, the screen got an orange shine on the WII Home page instead of blue (PANIC)

    10. Switched of the WII and did not start it since then.


    What should i do? Is my WII bricked?

    Format the SD card and start all over again? If so, can you tell me the step to do it right this time and make the skylander portal gets recognize?


    Thx, Johan

    If you have a Gamecube controller, try that.
