    I have 1 partition in FAT32 and 1 in NTFS, both are detected correctly. When I selected FAT32 it displayed SMG there correctly, but when I changed the file to the other partition and retried, on NTFS it says no games. Is there anything special I should do to get it working? Rename the folder "WBFS"? Or what?

    Thanks!

    The game is under the /wbfs folder right?
    Maybe check the case, I don't remember but maybe it matters and it has to be lower case /wbfs and not /WBFS...

    Yes it's in the WBFS folder, in upper case...

    It's EXACTLY the same that in the FAT32 partition, but one gets detected and the other one doesnt...

    Can you try it in lower-case /wbfs and let me know if it helps?

    Yeah, I think NTFS is case sensitive for the wbfs folder. It should be lower case.

    Make sure your NTFS partition is marked as "Active". Reconnect it to your computer, take a look with drive management, and set it to active. Then it'll work.
