    hi,

    from a couple of days
    when i run wadmanager to install wads i noticed
    that all the name of the files on my sd card are duplicated with a "._" at the beginning

    so i've got:

    cios_fix.wad
    ._cios_fix.wad

    and so on...

    ._ file is useless and can't be used to install or unistall anything (ret -1 error)

    since the appearing of this weird stuff i'm having troubles loading backup games:
    gamma loader channel won't reboot with hooks in the disk channel
    preloading times from backup games are longer and the wii drive makes a rithmycal click while trying to
    recognize the backup.

    shit!

    of course i tryed to:

    change my sd card and the adapter
    format in fat 16
    format in fat 32

    all the same : |

    someone got the same problem?

    suggestions are welcome!


    thx

    my conf:
    wii pal 3.2e
    gamma loader with 002 fix
    i'm on a mac

    if they are useless then try deleting them using a program like sd explorer

    try a different wad manager, never heard of a problem like this before, Also if the Extra Dup names isn't causing any problems i wouldn't worry about it

    If you're on a mac, it's quite normal.
    The OS makes a duplicate of any file with a leading underscore.
    Just forget about it and delete them, they're useless.
