    Hello! So I just installed everything on my wii using modmii (wow, it's so easy now!). Everything went smoothly, seems to be working, but I'm not sure how to setup my hard drive for configurable usb loader. I tried just tossing a few iso files on the root folder and no games are detected.

    I get a message saying auto partition failed/not found and it let's me choose a main partition, but it's not finding any games.

    I couldn't find anything searching. The instructions only cover the wbfs files.

    Any help?

    Use WBM to convert you ISO's to .WBFS files. It saves you a huge amount of discspace. New Super Mario Brothers for examples only is about 300 mb in WBFS format.

    If you want to place games manually they need to be in /wbfs/[gameid]/

    But use WBM, it does everything automaticly for you.
