    Okay well... I have this .WAD File, and I put it into the wad folder on my SD Card (Not SDHC), and then I put it into the Wii, I go to HBC, I go to WAD Manager, I do all that, but it always gives me this Error...

    ">> Reading WAD file... ERROR! (ret = -1)"

    I tried it with a USB Device, same thing. It's not a bad WAD, I know that for sure.

    Anyone know how to fix this? :S

    Thanks in advance! [​IMG]

    ret = -1 normally means that WAD Manager can't find the wad folder. Since you wrote, that it's the same with an USB device double check if you have the following structure:

    SD:/wad/*.wad

    Which Wad Manager are you using, older versions most probably do not support USB 2.0, use Wad Manager 1.4, or Custom WM.

    @Det1re: I have the WAD Folder on my SD Card, and i put the .wad into it. I've installed other WADS before. It's just not reading this one.

    @Jack: I usually use WM 1.3, but it won't work on 1.4 either. D:
