    Hey there, I have a problem

    I have the PAL version of SSBB for my (PAL) Wii and it's about 7 gig big.
    The problem is that I don't think I can run it on my USB since its a FAT32 system.

    When I try to run the game it says somthing like: "wbfs panic malloc fst error"

    What can I do?

    Please help

    Format your USB to WBFS using WBFS manager.

    Perhaps a stupid question...

    But will the programs CFG USB loader still work with it? And can I copy the contents to my HDD, than format it, and then move them back?

    Yes CFG will still work and you can move the files off the USB and put them back later. Do note though that windows won't recognise the device after you've formatted it to WBFS and it will ask you to format to FAT32. And you'll have to use WBFS Manager to put the ISO's onto the USB.

    Okay

    Only one problem.

    EDIT: Well the program loaded just fine. The problem is that the game is still giving me the same error...

    This: "wbfs panic nalloc fst error"

    It can work on FAT32 and it's an error from the WBFS code, reformatting is pointless & he'll just be stuck with all the drawbacks of WBFS.

    One of the biggest problems people have is that the game includes partitions that most managers skip over, but because it thinks it's copying them all then they don't adjust the partition table.
    You can either just copy the game partition, then it will rebuild the partition table or use something that works ( I patched wbfs_file.exe to convert mine ).

    I haven't tested CFG, but GX works.

    I´m not totally sure but the problem seems that the file you use is corrupted.
    Hmm and is it a wbfs file or just an ISO ?

    You do not need to but fat32 is better.

    He meant that the manager you used might not work correctly.
    Use a different manager to copy the game to hdd.
    If that doesnt help you probably got a bad rip.
