    setup your wii's internet connection, just dont update when prompted!
    once thats setup, pick a game in CFG usb loader, choose options, choose download cover, and boom!
    it'll automatically DL the cover and place in your SD card.

    or instead of downloading all your covers for a second time, you can just move\copy them from their current location to where cfg usb loader expects them
    SD\USB:\usb-loader\covers\2d\
    SD\USB:\usb-loader\covers\3d\
    SD\USB:\usb-loader\covers\full\

    or, instead of moving your covers around, u can use the configurator for configurable usb-loader (u will find it here: SD\USB:\usb-loader\configurator.exe or something like that), start it, when asked to load files, say yes, then find the field with the cover paths, change them to where ever u currently have them saved, and then before exiting, click the 'install all files' button (or something like that) in the bottom right corner to save your changes.

    BTW does no one ever read the readme's anymore? the readme text files usually have any info you need for the app in them and I know that CFG's readme has the info in it so for the sake of not seeming like an idiot read these files next time.

    thanks will try. and yes i have read around and no where does it say anything about loading covers.
    i thought in the wii backup manager would load them onto my usb hd since they are in the manager.

    did you not try what I said?

    1 - setup your wii's internet connection, just dont update when prompted!
    2 - once thats setup, pick a game in CFG usb loader, choose options, choose download cover, and boom!
    3 - it'll automatically DL the cover and place in your SD card.

    go to
    http://wiitdb.com/, goto Weekly 3D Covers, choose the regions needed, and put this entire unzipped file onto your SD or HD in a folder called covers.

    All you have to do is set your cover folder in WBM..

    Then use "Sync and download" from the covers menu on the drive tabs. If the covers exist in the cache, they'll be copied from there, otherwise they'll be downloaded.

    Not really rocket surgery is it? [​IMG]
