    I have a backed-up copy of Wind Waker on DVD-R, which once upon a time worked on my old softmodded Wii. The disc drive in that Wii flipped it's shit so now I have a newer Wii - one of the black ones. From what I understand, they have a different DVD drive which doesn't allow you to use it for copied games. But it will (and successfully has, from my friend's external HD) run games from USB.

    I made an .iso file of the WW DVD-R on my PC, and went to put it on my USB.

    I'm using Ubuntu, and with gParted, I separated my USB drive into two 2GB partitions (Yes, I know it's not much). One FAT32 for general use, and another without a filesystem at that point.

    Then I downloaded wwt/wit so I could format said partition as WBFS, and put the .iso on. The best way to explain this is just to show you exactly what I did: (the new partition was at /dev/sdb2)

    Code:
    jay@ubuntu:~$ sudo wwt FORMAT /dev/sdb2 --force
    *****  wwt: Wiimms WBFS Tool v2.03a r3309 i386 - Dirk Clemens - 2011-12-30  *****
    FORMAT BLOCK DEVICE /dev/sdb2 [2 GiB, hss=512]
    ** 1 file formatted.
    jay@ubuntu:~$ sudo wwt ADD --source Wind_Waker.iso --part /dev/sdb2
    *****  wwt: Wiimms WBFS Tool v2.03a r3309 i386 - Dirk Clemens - 2011-12-30  *****
    WBFSv1 #1/1 opened: /dev/sdb2
    - ADD 1/1 [GZLE01] ISO:Wind_Waker.iso
    !! wwt: ERROR #14 [INVALID WII PARTITION] in wd_check_part_offset() @ src/libwbfs/wiidisc.c#1925
    !!      Partition 0x454c5a47 ["GZLE"]: End of PART (57057ffa) behind end of
    !!      file (57057800): Wind_Waker.iso
    !! wwt: ERROR #14 [INVALID WII PARTITION] in wd_load_part() @ src/libwbfs/wiidisc.c#2091
    !!      Invalid BOOT.BIN (no MAIN.DOL and no FST), partition '0x454c5a47
    !!      ["GZLE"]': Wind_Waker.iso
    !! wwt: ERROR #14 [INVALID WII PARTITION] in exec_add() @ src/wwt.c#2117
    !!      Error while adding disc [GZLE01] @/dev/sdb2
    jay@ubuntu:~$ sudo wwt LIST /dev/sdb2
    
    ID6     1/215 discs (0 GiB)
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    GZLE01  The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Total: 1/215 discs, 0 MiB ~ 0 GiB used, 1922 MiB ~ 2 GiB free.
    From what I can see, it formatted the partition OK, but then starts complaining that the partition is 'invalid' once I try to add the .iso, and then when I list the discs on the WBFS system, it says Wind Waker is there, but the filesystem is empty.

    So, what have I done wrong?

    there are no GC USB loaderes anyway
    only SD ones, but they don't support wbfs afaik

    btw I don't like splitting the free space by using multiple partitions on any drive.
    But on a 4G stick? Do you really want wbfs that much?

    Neogamma supports gamecube backups:
    All I want it for is a couple of gamecube games at most, so 2GB is fine. I need WBFS for Neogamma to work.

    my harddrive is FAT32 MW3 and Ikenie no yuro works now 100%
    installing mods on mw3 right now hahahahaha (6)
    and i tried that program also and its shit!
    ikenie no yuro i needed a save file to get this working but a member was friendly enough to gave me his save file
    and mw3 i only needed to start the game with the 224 ISO and that fixed the whole story

    Yes neogamma might support all that IN GENERAL. (what's with the "|"s?)
    But not the combination of loading GC from USB.

    I already answered in the wit support thread:
    And one last note: I have implemented the --force option now to ignore some sizing errors (only in my working copy yet).
