Hi.... long time lurker here lol Wii is currently on 4.2U. Basically I downloaded the emulators (snes9xgx, fceux, genplus-gx, vbagx).... I run the actual apps off the SD and I got tired of having my DVD's with loading being slow and getting minor scratches leaving some games unplayable so I used a FAT32 partition of my WD External HDD for ROMS. The same ROMS that I've been playing for ages on my Wii. I even played some a couple of times of the HDD and it worked just fine. Yesterday, I try playing and the emulator (snes9xgx) didn't detect any ROMs in the default location. So i thought no problem, i'll just browse for them. Well the individual folders for each emu's ROMS were still there, but no ROMS whatsoever in the folders. I connect it to my PC and I see 3 large files in the root of the partition: = "" sm.bsh (1.56 GB) = 1 Sta.tes (976 MB) PadType.2 = (1.56 GB) For a total of 4.096 GB As well as a new folder: adButton.Slo (Location not available error when trying to open it) When I open up the properties of the files, however, they're read as 0 bytes. I tried changing the file type to .rar and I get an error. Hmm I don't recall how much space the ROMs took exactly, but 4.096 does seem likely. I'm guessing all my ROMS are scattered through these junk files. I can transfer them from my DVD again, but I'd like to prevent this from happening again. Any ideas?
