    I'm trying to install a WAD using WAD Manager but I can't get past the 3rd step in the set-up process because I keep getting that error. What can I do to correct said issue?

    That error means the WAD manager couldn't get the data correctly from the SD card. Are you using a SDHC?

    I'm actually trying to load it off my HDD but I believe my SD card is SDHC. I get an error for every viable source.

    The IOS 36 isn't compatible with USB 2.0 and/or SDHC, AFAIK. Try using a normal SD card (2GB or less).

    For your USB select USB 2.0. If that doesn't work what rev is your cIOS?

    is your hard drive formatted as FAT32? Is it the primary partition on the drive (if applicable)?
