Well I haven't messed with my Wii in a while and now I remember why. It appears that 11 of my games (on FAT32) were corrupted, fragmented, or otherwise messed up. To fix this I tried to make a WBFS partition and copy games over to it using the Wii Backup Manager but it shows the 11 games as invalid (and unable to copy to the WBFS partition). From what I've googled it looks like it may be a problem with blank padding.

Quoting from the WBFS File 2.9 changelog:
QUOTE said:
v2.0 caused the created files to contain additional blank padding
and so was reported as inconsistent (hd num sector doesn't match)
any .wbfs files created with v2.0 can be fixed by using:
mkdir temp
wbfs_file -f source.wbfs extract_wbfs_all temp
then in temp should be the fixed file. (hopefully)
I tried copying a .wbfs file to my desktop and running this program on Guitar Hero 5 however it ignored it and ran through to Rockband 2 for some reason. That was the only file it would attempt to fix and running the command again will only try to overwrite Rockband 2 with itself.

Does anyone know a proper command to use with WBFS File or any other program that can extract/repair/ or merge wbfs and wbf1, wbf2, wbf3... files?

I tried the command "wit verify F:\wbfs"
and it results in this.
Code:

That's easy, just re-download or re-rip the iso again.
I have crap internets, I would try to force-recheck with utorrent but I downloaded iso files in the first place instead of wbfs files. But that just reminded me, I hacked my friend's console a little after I hacked mine so maybe he has a few of those games.

    @K3Nv2 He was looking into consoles for his house anyway (for my younger siblings and himself) and I had a spare XSX and Switch I ended up selling him at pretty steep cuts. I would just give them to him, but I did buy them with the intent to sell them... and college is super expensive.
