    So I setup a spare Wii and hard drive I had for a friend today, and was showing her how to use it. She was playing through a SNES game using snes9x-gx 4.3.2 when she tried to make a save state and it complained it couldn't open the directory. After she quit the game it immediately complained again. That's when I saw what was left of the folders, the whole drive had become corrupt. I had that happen once with fceu-gx, and was told here it was a bug in the version I was using and to get a newer version with the fix. In this case however, I am using the latest version, which is nearly a year old. So does anyone know what version I should use to avoid corruption?

    Corrupt as in? Can you not view the drive, or is there just missing files and stuff?

    I could see the contents but they had become corrupted, everything was named with random symbols.

    Usually happens if the USB hdd was moved while the Wii was reading and writing to it , I always keep a backup of my fat on my desktop in case this happens.my kids showed me this a few weeks ago when they was playing a game an unplugging my game cube controllers . They almost knocked my Wii off my tv stand and the fat partition was messed up just like you said. Just reformat and redo her fat partition . And try not to move the USB cable while its being used

    Neither the Wii or hard drive were ever touched, I even turned the wii on with the controller. :/
