    So I heard recently that the game Animal Crossing: City Folk was a small game under 1Gb but the file I have here is over 4Gb. I was wondering if the information i got previously was wrong or if I have somehow made a mistake.
    I am trying to put this game on my USB because my original copy is damaged and will not be read by my wii. I only have 2 smaller USB drives that i can use so it would be helpful if someone could help me figure this out. Thanks.

    I don't think Animal Crossing can be 1GB when trimmed but did you trimmed the rom? Download WBFS manager, format one of your USB drives and add the game, it will auto trim and add, then see if it works.

    City Folk when scrubbed weights only 326MB.

    Are you using a Flash drive or a Hard Drive?

    Try formatting it (WBFS, FAT32, NTFS, all the same) with Wii Backup Manager (WBFS Manager is crap compared to this one) and use the same program to copy the game over. If it is still not working, try another FDD/HDD.

    They are NOT all the same. You want FAT32. It's got the highest compatibility all around.

    For animal crossing, it will be.

    I use NTFS for all my games with three different drives and they all work. Saves me the trouble of splitting DL games.

    That doesn't mean it's smart to use it. WBFS corrupts and you can't recover anything. FAT32 works with all homebrew and games. NTFS has limited support all around.

    Splitting takes no time at all, and it's done automatically by WBM.

    USB loader gx will not recognize my usb. Wiiflow sees the game just fine but when i try to play it either goes to a black screen or some weird code shows up and says reloading in 10 secs then takes me back to my wii home menu.

    reinstall d2x

    slot 249 base 56
    slot 250 base 57

    configure the loaders to use 249 by default

    Hmm well i just figured out that for an unknown reason my wii was not connected to the internet when i originally modded it, could this be the root of my problems or does that not matter?

    Either way I tried what you suggested and it still cuts out to the weird code when I hit play.
