    Is it possible to rip Wii games to a USB drive formatted as WBFS? FAT32 and NTFS don't work and I gave up trying to make them work after WBFS did work. I have only seen apps that are only compatible with those two, and not what I need.

    When I try that it just says 0 kb/s, 0.00%, 0/___ mb, and 0 time left. It lets me use the cursor but pressing cancel does nothing. It's the same for every other app or anything I've used for ripping.

    Did you check to see if the version you're using has broken features?

    use an older usb loader. I still use WBFS. been using it since 2009. i never switched because averything has always worked. i use older versions of the loaders. and it also depends on the cios versions you are using

    I'm telling you, normal strategies aren't working, and I need help.

    I guess I should specify more. I have tried CFG loader, USB loader GX, and WiiFlow. CleanRip is apparently not compatible with WBFS drives, so I have not tried that. I have the recommended cIOS installation for CFG Loader with d2x v10 beta53. What else do I need to say?

    You don't seem to know what is being referred to when asked about versions.

    Are you using a Wii to make backups? Maybe you should try using USB Loader GX to make backups and wait longer. The drive you're using could be on the slower side.



    Or, you could go into detail as to what's going on with your setups and what you're doing.

    Or, if you're too lazy for that, my recommendation to you is find backups of games you already own; guaranteed to work or your money back.

    --------------

    These things. That's why older versions might be helpful.

    you could choose suggestion #2.

    I am using a Wii. I have waited more than an hour and a half and yet nothing changes in each method I've tried. I have been downloading games online, but I would much rather be able to do this.

    ...well...

    Anyway, maybe the version you're using doesn't work correctly with your current setup. Maye there is a broken feature with whatever you're using.

    Is your flash drive full? Is your flash drive real?

    I've told you, I've used 3 different methods. It's not the version that's not right.

    I use the latest CFGLoader mods, and have enjoyed NTFS for a long time now.

    I don't use NTFS, that's the point of this thread.
    Yes.

    Did you install IOS58? It's specifically for USB.
