    WFBS is the norm? SO no ISO.
    Also what format does the flash drive need to be.

    TYIA all of you for your patience.

    as far as I know, Neogamma will only read a game iso from a wbfs partition from a usb or sd card

    The norm is FAT32 and games converted to a *.wbfs format (although there's a few WBFS fans out there who keep the filesystem alive), there's a lot of managers that do all of the converting, reanaming and transferring job for you. Neogamma's good for loading backup disks, but for anything other than that, I'd suggest CFGLoader, USB Loader GX or WiiFlow - pick one depending on which one suits your need the best. I personally use CFGLoader since I've always had stability issues with GX and WiiFlow - they have prettier GUI's but I feel that CFG has more in-depth options which is something I prioritize.

    Lets say I had a flash drive with nothing else better to do, and say I had no problem loading wfbs, how do I start? Because I would rather not dick with anything but neogamma.

    BTW I know how to convert the ISOS to WFBS, just from where would help.

    Well, if you want a barebones setup like that, I suggest following this route:
    1. Make sure your cIOS setup is up to scratch - install the latest cIOS and HERMES revisions with the default settings.
    2. Download Wii Backup Manager, it's probably the best utility for the job.
    3. Format the USB stick to WBFS via the manager, then transfer all your ISO's and WBFS'es to it. There's no need to convert them manually, the manager will do it for you.
    4. Plug the stick in and start Neogamma, you should enjoy a gaming galore at this point.
    It's a really simple process that's hard to screw up. ;)

    I've always used WBFS Manager to transfer games to a WBFS partition. Your games need to be in ISO format and the usb drive needs to be a WBFS format.

    WBFS Manager is a tad outdated to my tastes, I've had some issues with it in the past and switched to Wii Backup Manager which is more all-encompassing.
    It's very simple.

    [​IMG]

    • First, go to the Drive 1 or Drive 2 tab and mount your drive - it should show all the games you currently have on it (you have none, so the list should be blank).
    • Next, head to the files tab, click Add and add all the game images you want to transfer to the drive. The manager supports ISO and WBFS images as well as RAR'ed and ZIP'ped images, including archives with multiple parts.
    • Once all the games you want are on the list, click on Transfer and select the drive you've mounted - the manager will do the rest.
    • If you want to transfer games from one disk to another or you want to transfer some games to one partition and some to another (useful when using high capacity drives), you can mount multiple drives and transfer games between them - all you need to do is use the checkboxes and the transfer tool.
    • If any issues occured during the the process, the log tab will give you detailed information about the error that occured, for example whether the archive or image you were transferring was complete. This is useful when troubleshooting as you might run into a bad dump, a bad download or a broken archive or image from time to time, whatever the cause of such corruption might be.
