    I've tried everything: Triiforce, Triiforce MRC, WAD2ISO w/usbloader GX (tried losding .wbfs and .iso), WAD2ISO w/ Configurable USB Loader (tried losding .wbfs and .iso) and noooooone of them work [​IMG]
    It's so frustrating. I've tried multiplue guides and none of them helped.

    Please tell me if I'm doing something wrong.

    Dump NAND
    make it into the 8 folders
    [​IMG]
    Open ShowMiiWads
    Extract WADS to nand
    put the new
    [​IMG]
    on the usb drive

    load triiforce
    that comes up with "can't load titles"

    if i try to use wad2iso then when i load the iso up with usbloader gx it hangs on a black screen for 5 seconds or so and then goes to the system menu. I've tried so hard to get this working and I don't know how much more I can try.
    Any help would be awweeesome [​IMG]

    Have you tried uLoader? There shouldn't be any need for WAD2ISO or anything, just install the .wads, start uLoader and it should list everything on the main screen.

    The part where you use ShowMiiWads to extract the wads to the NAND; different way of saying installing them to the harddrive.

    Alternatively, you should be able to install wads to an emulated NAND through WADManager, though I've never tried it myself, and can't explain exactly how to do it.

    Right, I understand that. I'm saying to try uLoader, there is no need to use .iso or .wbfs files.

    Try this, for example:

    Install a wad to the internal NAND
    Make a NAND dump and put it on the harddrive (you might need to put the dumped folders into a "nand" directory on the drive, but I'm not certain of that)
    Start uLoader, and you should see any games you installed

    It's 100% compatible with FAT32. How else would you get a NAND dump on it?

    good question, but when i tried uloader a week or so ago it did indeed come up with a screen where the only option was to format as WBFS

    The same thing happened to me a little while ago.

    First, make sure you have your FAT partition set to Primary and Active.

    If that doesn't work, find a good partition manager which has an option to "Rebuild MBR" (Master Boot Record). I use Partition Wizard Professional v5.0, but I'm sure there are others. There might be ways to do it through whatever OS you have, but I can't help there.

    I had to do the Rebuild MBR method after an attempt at using my harddrive as Xbox 360 USB storage wiped my drive clean. From the sound of it, there are a number of things that can damage an MBR though.

    The whole drive may be fat32... even so, it may not be set to active.
    In WinXP, go to Start > Run > type compmgmt.msc > ok > Disk Management.
    Locate the drive you are trying to use and make sure it says "Active".
    If not, right click the drive and select "Mark Partition as Active"

    test after that.

    tossed in my 8gb usb stick, freshly formatted to FAT32, it IS set to primary and active.
    same error, no WBFS partition found.
    let it format as WBFS and it came up normally... though of course it was WBFS so no nand emu [​IMG]

    uloader 5.1D is best to use and you will need hermes cios v5 use 224v5.1base[57]....

    on the fat32 hdd (32 kb clusters) make a folder

    nand\install all you have to do is put the wads in the install folder when you launch uloader it will install them on load up and remove them from that folder.......

    Nope the uloader creates the emulated nand when it installs the wads...copying your fs dump to it wont work the games will show up but you still have to install them with uloader....

    the saves also go on the emu nand

    well I'll be damnd, that is working... uLoader is copying the filesystem at the moment.
    does uLoader just not know how to load backup wii games from FAT32 then?
