    Hi there,

    I'm asking if there is a simple way to rename the title of a backup in the USB Loader? for example, WiiSport have the display "Sports Pack for Revolution", and BoomBlox is "Spielberg | EA BoomBlox". I really don't like the name, and I just want to rename to "WiiSport" and "BoomBlox".

    How can I do this?

    Thanks alot!

    The Game ID and Game name are the first few bytes of the ISO (Open a ISO with an Hex editor and you will see.
    So try it out change the name install the ISO over PC and you will if it runs fine and so.
    Should work but i´m not sure about the encryption things for Wii ISO´s

    The problem is my computer don't see the drive. What i mean (sorry for my english) is when i've put the first time my external drive(160Gb) in my computer, the drive is see by my computer (of course, it's a fat32 format drive).

    I've put this drive in my Wii, USB loader see the drive and ask to format, i've say yes, successful! And now I have 8 backup game in the drive.

    But now, if I put this same external drive in my computer, the usb connexion is made but NO drive letter, nothing! I only see a icon in my taskbar that something is now plug in the USB.

    All the WBFS GUI or wathever tell us to indicate a drive letter in the parameter or command line... but I DONT have a drive letter, WindowsXP don't see any drive and dont ask me to format of wathever.

    what is wrong

    start -> run -> type "diskmgmt.msc" enter, you can manully assign a drive letter for it there, caution, do not format it in windows

    i translated this for you:


    rename games in gamelist
    linux, OS X and Windows (cygwin)

    dd if=/dev/sdd1 of=dump.bin bs=1M count=1

    replace sdd1 with your dir path to WBFS partition

    open dump.bin with a hex editor and search the gametitle
    overwrite it with your custom title - custom title can be longer than original; if it is shorter overwrite the old title with 00.
    important: only overwrite, dont delete or add anything else
    save file under a new name, to have the old one as a backup. eg dump_renamed.bin
    copy with dd dd den new index to hdd:

    dd of=/dev/sdd1 if=dump_renamed.bin

    if you are using a good hex editor (in windows WinHex should do it) you can open the hdd directly w/o copying. but be careful because you dont have a backup when editing directly on hdd

    I dunno if it works on XP
    but if you right click on 'my computer' (or whatever its called in English), you should see 'manage'
    if you click it, you can choose an option to the left (disk management) that will show all the drives and their partitions
    you can change the drive 'letters' there

    (its the same as JimmyZ said, only shorter)

    It does not work on xp.
    I plug my drive in after formatting with wii and it cant be seen even when i go to disk management.
    But on vista works fine.

    Cheers
