    Isn't WAD Manager 1.3 capable of installing wads from a USB HDD? When I choose USB Mass Storage Device in the menu, I get this:

    Initializing libfat, please wait... ok!
    Retrieving device contents, please wait... ERROR! (ret = -1)
    I have a folder in the root called wad with the wads in it. The USB HDD I'm using is FAT32 and works in other apps such as MPlayerCE and FTPii. Any idea?

    Try Channel File Manager 2.0 beta4. It actually works with SDHC cards and USB devices (FAT16/FAT32 only, not NTFS/ext2/etc). Not only that, but it has USB 2.0 support.

    Which folder on the USB HDD do I put the wads for the Channel File Manager?

    I confirm that Wad manager 1.3 is not working with sdhc 4go
    I tried with Sandisk, kingston and no brand all error -1
    i tried a mini sdhc 4 go kingston same -1
    I tried in usbkey mirco SD and load them as USB massstorage... -1

    I tried in memorystick 1Go and 16 Mo
    16 Mo as FAT 12, FAT 16... in usb reader as mass storage error -1 again...

    After a long search I just found this :

    WAD Manager 1.3 originally made by Waninkoko

    Modded by WiiPower to:
    - use the newer libogc version(december 2008 and up)*
    - return to loader instead of restarting the Wii
    - show the version and revision of the used IOS
    - added libpng.a to the folder, which is required at devkitPro\libogc\lib\wii

    * now only the internal SD slot and the 1st usb storage device are supported

    There is a link to it below


    It is working ! no more -1 error
