I hacked my wii 6 years ago and recently decieded to rehack it. It worked perfect 6 years ago and now after the re hack its either not finding games on the usb or not able to read the usb if I formatted it different. please help!

Also the loader GX see the hdd as a fat16 even though I have it WBFS formatted.

WBFs manager and Wii backup manager both see 3 games on the HDD.

I don't know what's going on here, but I do know that WBFS formatted drives haven't been necessary for a long time, and you'd probably be better off switching to FAT32.

Back to your actual problem... Hmmm... is the partition with your Wii games the first partition on the drive? I think i t has to be. Also make sure it's plugged into the correct USB port. Bottom on a Wii, top back on a Wii U. Good luck.

Are you using usbloader gx? They require A special folder Chain, you need a folder called "wbfs" and in them with the iso or .wbfs named of the id your game is out me the wii won't recognize them

OK let me give that a shot... wait how do you access the drive to put a folder in WBFS?
You need to stop using the WBFS formatted drive. Reformat it as FAT32 and then put all your games into a "wbfs" folder on the root of the drive. You'll have to use Wii Backup Manager to move all your games off first to a safe location before you format it.

Try to use Wii Backup manager to make sure they're all put in properly named folders; you can't just slap them in the WBFS directory, they need specifically named folders to be recognized and Wii Backup Manager can do that for you.

What brand/model drive are you using?

What cIOS version do you have installed?

When you say you "rehacked" your Wii, what exactly do you mean?
