    when using WBM some isos are converted to region Z on ID numbers. What does this mean? Games play but cannot get covers. Is it possible to change the region to E?

    There is no region "Z". It's either E for NTSC-US, P for PAL or J for NTSC-J. What titles are you having issues with?

    I know there is no Z region, that is the problem. converted to-

    RNNZ Chronicles of Narnia
    SEPZ Black Eyed Peas

    I do not understand what the Z region is for.

    Thanks for the quick reply and help

    At least for the Narnia game it looks like that's a modified ID. The real PAL one is as expected: RNNP4Q

    Same with the Real Black-Eyed Peas experience: SEPP41

    There are other regions.
    I know D,F,I for Europeans (special editions because of Nazi emblems) and have also seen X and Y.

    Example from title data base:
    Code:
    SM8D52 = Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
    SM8E52 = Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
    SM8F52 = Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
    SM8I52 = Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
    SM8P52 = Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
    SM8S52 = Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
    SM8X52 = Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
    
    And in the same file you can find many 'Z':
    Code:
    GHLZ69 = Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
    R4RZ69 = FIFA Soccer 10
    R8XZ52 = Top Shot Dinosaur Hunter
    RDSZ70 = Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3 Version! Latino
    RLWZ78 = Ratatouille
    RNNZ4Q = The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
    RPWZ41 = Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
    RQPZ52 = Cabela's Monster Buck Hunter
    RRLZ78 = Bratz: Girlz Really Rock
    RUHZ52 = Bakugan Battle Brawlers
    RWAZ78 = WALL•E
    SCYZ4Q = Cars 2
    SEMZ4Q = Disney Epic Mickey
    SEPZ41 = The Black Eyed Peas Experience: Limited Edition
    SFWZ69 = 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa
    SJDZ41 = Just Dance 3: Target Exclusive Edition
    SKYZ52 = Skylanders: Giants
    SLAZ78 = The Last Airbender: ToysRUs Special Edition
    STSZ4Q = Toy Story 3: Toy Box Special Edition

    Maybe Z is region-free, then?

    You could just get the cover manually and rename it and put it in your loader's cover cache.
