    Hey guys. A couple of days ago, I had USB Loader GX fully working with games on it. Yesterday, I checked USB Loader GX because I wanted to play Wii Sports, but none of my games were showing up. I have formatted to FAT32 and WBFS but no luck. Please help. Thx

    Thank you.:)

    What kind of USB Device did you use ?
    (Flash Drives/USB Sticks/Thumb Drives are known to stop working without a warning :( ).

    Is it still recognized by your PC ? Can you access it ? Are the Games still there (in the wbfs folder) ?
    Do you have the chance to try a HDD ?

    Thank you.:)

    It is always surprising that the USB charger GX works and then, although you have not changed anything suddenly.:(

    Is your USB Drive recognized on USBLoader GX Startup ?
    Did you know on what IOS your USBLoader GX is starting/running ? 58 or 249 ? Maybe you can change it.
    You can check this in the Settings\Loader Settings.

    If this not help,please be so kind and post a sysCheck please.

    Then please try 58 if you are on 249 or the other way around.

    Thank you.:)

    Please check also:

    - Partitions of your HDD (only one or multiple ?)
    - is the Partition activated ?
    - USB Stick is connected on Port 0 on your Wii:

    728px-Wii-USB-port.

    - in the USBLoaderGX settings please check this settings also:

    All Games are correct named and in the correct Folder(s) like:

    SD Card:\wbfs\Rock Band 3 [SZBE69]\SZBE69.wbfs

    Translated with Google from
    https://wiiki.wii-homebrew.com/WBFS#Geschichte

    WBFS (Wii Backup File System) is a very simple file system that can only store Wii images at a single directory level. WBFS was explicitly developed in early 2009 by Kwiirk and Waninkoko for the use of USB loaders and initially used only as a partition (similar to a FAT, NTFS or ext234 partition). The developers made the access and management functions available as a C source code library LIBWBFS under the GPL2 license, so that third parties building on this library could quickly develop their own USB loaders and WBFS managers. The WBFS managers are needed because no operating system can handle WBFS partitions.

    When Wiimm started developing his WBFS manager wwt (Winnings in Wiimm's ISO Tools) for Linux in late 2009, he minimally modified the LIBWBFS for testing purposes, so that WBFS files could be managed on other file systems. It was then Oggzee, the developer of the CFG Loader, who discovered these types of WBFS files for his USB loader months later. He then took over Wiimm's naming "TITLE [ID6] .wbfs" and introduced the splitting of WBFS files larger than 4 GiB. Meanwhile, all current USB loaders and WBFS managers can handle WBFS files.

    In developing its tools and a consistent code review of the LIBWBFS, Wiimm discovered about a dozen programming errors in the LIBWBFS, 3 of which were so serious that they could make the entire WBFS archive unusable. The bug fixes were published and discussed on GBAtemp [1]. Because these bugs were discovered by mid-2010, it can be assumed that all loaders and tools that are older can definitely handle WBFS errors and destroy content. The popular WBFS Manager 3.0, released in April 2009, belongs to this category, so it is not recommended to use it.

    @daxyd What folder structure do you have for your games? Here's an example if you need one
    USB:/wbfs/Mario Kart Wii [RMCE01]/RMCE01.wbfs(or iso)

    I use WBFS Manager and I use Wiiflow BUT, 2 of my games are showing up...
    Super Smash Bros. Brawl
    Super Mario Galaxy
    That's really weird that those games are showing up but not the rest of them.
