    hi there.

    1st i tell you i followed this thread :

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=242...p;#entry3000134

    but there are things that are not normal for me.


    - i dont have problem to see list in my GX
    - some game works flawlessly
    - some freeze

    i decided to check drive with WWT.

    i had 178 errors disk / 180.

    i followed all thread i put link above, now i got :

    C:\resto>wwt check
    ***** wwt: Wiimms WBFS Tool v1.11a r1434 cygwin -
    ***

    CHECK /dev/sdb1

    * Summary of WBFS Check: 709 errors found:
    709 WBFS sectors are used by 2 or more discs!
    Total: 129 discs are invalid!


    then i do

    WWT LIST

    i got all my list, ref, names, at end :

    Total: 180/500 discs, 439656 MiB ~ 429 GiB used, 42760 MiB ~ 42 GiB free.

    but...

    C:\resto>wwt verify
    ***** wwt: Wiimms WBFS Tool v1.11a r1434
    ***
    !! wwt: ERROR #15 [NO WBFS FOUND] in Analy
    381
    !! no WBFS partitions found -> abort


    and

    first some explanations of the errors you got

    C:\resto>wwt check
    found 709 sectors each belonging to two or more games
    which is bad news

    C:\resto>wwt verify
    this command wanted either a drive or -a (autoselect) as a parameter

    C:\resto>wwt verify -a
    refused to verify from a drive already known to be bad (unless overridden)

    all wwt results are consistent


    asuming wwt is correct the wbfs is in fact corrupted
    only not the "I formatted again" kind of corruption but the next common one
    something caused sectors to be allocated multiple times thus overwriting parts of other games
    the original wbfs lib eg had a bug which did this

    as only 129 games are affected this would be consistent with your report of only some games working
    wwt should be able to fix this by deleting the affected games
    as you will have to rerip most of your games anyway, you might want to consider switching to FAT

    check the wwt thread
    there should be explanations about how to proceed

    as i hate to use something i dont have full acces for correcting errors & see in deep what the hell is gooing on, i rebuild the wii hack with primary objective NTFS system files.

    i wasted too much time on that wbfs, & all windows based partitions , files, recovery are useless on wbfs, so ....

    worst is to rebuild list. i tried 5 random redump on another drive, no error found with wwt, no crash, no freeze.

    wbfs on hitachi 2,5 drives definitivly sux lol

    i the only bad thing is i wont be able to rip anymore from wii to drive since ntfs dont allow writing.

    but the other hand, it secure all kind of error by forbidding writting on drive, so, 1-1 for the score..

    i search a way to use wii as drive from wifi to pc, to read from wii to write iso ( or better, direclty .wbfs ) to computer drives. dvd dumper 1.3 can do the job it seems.

    anyway, i know my drive containing the games is not damaged, it only dont like wbfs on it, that's all.
    i'll return to ntfs

    i'll go read your WWT post.

    Another alternative is to use FAT32, which does allow to install games directly on the Wii.

    ripping over wifi is possible but not exactly fast
    sorry I dont know any specifics

    considering your now empty(fresh formated) drive
    if you want to rip many games and really use NTFS
    it might be fastest to

    1 format to FAT
    2 rip all games
    3 convert drive to NTFS retaining data (eg using windows "convert" app - see windows help - F1?)

    Maybe have 2 partitions - 1 small fat partition, for example 10 or 20GB on which games can be installed and later transferred to ntfs...

    fat32 is 4gb size limited.

    what about DVD9 games on rip, do GX loader auto split data ?

    Yes it should, you'll get 2 files: game.wbfs + game.wbf1

    ok, end of all problems [​IMG]

    - i totally deleted SD
    - i reloaded nand to pre mods ( 3.4e )

    i restarted from scratch with in mind what i wanted :

    1) direct HDD injection of game from windows
    2) injection of game via wii
    3) total control of HDD
    4) bypass DVD9 size problem
    5) only essential Cios, no shit, no fancy support for thing i'll never use

    i kept from the nand the boot mii in boot 2 mode & hbc 0.6

    what i did :

    HBC 0.7 updating
    drive long formatting in fat 32
    CiosX 20b base 57
    CFG loader r57

    IT ROX AS HELL !

    - no more dump error ( seems slower, but better )
    - CFG is a pure professionnal loader tool, fully working, he says what he does when doing something
    - samurai warriors 3 iso on computer, & some more iso, i use wii converter gui 1.4
    no problem, DVD 9 splited 2 files, control of content of wbfs file, only game partition
    cfg ask too what we want... GX just tell nothing & tell us to go screw yourself by keeping silence on some disks i got, CFG speaks.
    - huge amount of parameters, but well thinked organization.
    - bye bye WWT barbarian ms-dos prompt
    - bye bye wbfs manager ( mine never worked for clone HDD function, 3.0.1 anyway )
    - fuck hermes crasher 222
    - fuck crappy bug & unstability of GX with all those rev

    no more shit, i'm less sad to look at my 500go & think damn, 2 times this week i full it
    but this time ALL WORKS !!! hahaha !



    love you guys


    POWER TO CFG !!!!!!!!!!
