    Installed and runs just fine (haven't actually tested features yet)

    You might be able to call this "Final"!

    well, it would be great to have this as final! But I hope that more work on USB loader add support for GC games (so then would need more work on my app!)

    That's a good point manias! It was called "wrapper" before (more descriptive).

    Anyway, I will start loading dozens of games using this tool today, so I'll let you know how it goes!

    Bah, my bad. I was misunderstanding the fields in your program and what they meant.

    Ignore this post.

    Sorry, I guess I have one other question. Is it possible to rip a burned DVD directly to the WBFS partition, rather than going to the .iso first? Ripping to the .iso file adds a lot of time, especially when the scrubbed image for some games is under 1GB!

    Just a little remark : your program is called WBFS Wrapper, not "manager".
    There is a program called WBFS manager, which is another very good manager (see http://wbfsmanager.codeplex.com/) . You should rename your post so there is no confusion.

    You mean rename the title of this thread?
    Only mods can do that

    I'm not sure if this is the right thread to post in, but I have got this version running in ubuntu intrepid, but when I connect my usb drive the system doesn't see it, so I have no path to put in for my wbfs partition (the drive works fine connected to my wii), am I missing something, perhaps some other app I should also be running. (sorry to seem such a noob)

    ubuntu doesnt automount the drive because it doesn't know what WBFS is. you always have to put in the path to the drive.

    If the WBFS partition is the first one on the drive here's how Intrepid handles them:

    If you have one physical hard drive it's /dev/sda
    A second physical hard drive is /dev/sdb
    Partitions on each drive are 1, 2, 3, etc.

    So if you have ONE physical hard drive on your computer and no other USB flash drive or anything, your WBFS partition will be /dev/sdb1
    If you have two hard drives (besides the WBFS drive) it will be /dev/sdc1

    If there's a glitch (you didn't unmount something properly) it might skip a letter. Don't worry, his program will tell you.

    Hope that helps.

    thanks for the replies, am at work at the moment, but will try this tomorrow when I get home, it should be easier than the workround I have been doing with a winblows box and samba
