    i just got a 2gb mp3 player with a usb dongle on it. i thought that i could use it to install WADS, as its a usb mass storage device. once i press 2 to load from a usb MSD, i get a code dump! the wad is in the right folder (wad). i tryed connecting to usb port 1 and 2 and still nothing! anything that yuo guys may know about the problem?

    EDIT: I think i know whats the problem, its FAT32, gotta format it in FAT16.

    You have to insert a SD card to use the USB.
    It says so on the website that it'll be corrected in future versions.

    Exactly. Check this: http://www.teknoconsolas.info/foro/viewtop...=95&t=43494

    It says in spanish: "NOTA: Hay un pequeño bug que sera corregido en una proxima version. Si no hay introducida una tarjeta SD, la aplicacion dara error al leer de la unidad USB."

    Translated is says: "There is a little bug that will be corrected in the next verison. If there isn't a SD card inserted, the app will fail to read from USB."

    Words from Waninkoko.

    Think about it for a second....

    There would have to be an SD card in the front SD slot of the Wii already. Otherwise where else would the WadManager be loading from ? It's not like the HBC will read from anything else.

    And FAT or FAT32 doesn't make a difference, I'm using a FAT32 formatted 120gig HD and it works perfectly.

    How about there needs to be a wad directory on the SD card in the front SD slot ?

    Yeah, Wiiload, DVD ISO(for bricks) don't need a SD inserted, but it NEEDS one because of that bug.

    Not all usb drives are supported.
    For example, Paradox's DS-X (ds xtreme flash cart) is a usb drive, but is not supported with the wad manager. There is a compatibility list up on wiibrew, just do a search for "usb".

    Bah, JP beat me to it [​IMG].

    It's not the hardware... it's just you.

    Read the previous posts. Make sure the device is formatted to FAT, the SD card needs a WAD folder, and the storage device needs a WAD folder.

    Also, not every device can be mounted as a mass storage device.
