    does anyone else have this problem. ive a fair amount of singitstar games in amongst 140 games, whenever i use usbloader gx to automatically get the covers it gets every games correctly except the singitstar ones. some of them it wont find, some of them it will download other singitstar games, and at least 3 games will choose covers of other games, normally silent hill for some reason.

    all of the games have the correct ID number.

    i look on WiiTDB and all of the games are up there, all with the correct ID number.

    I download their offline full pack and some of hte games were there but not all.

    ive downloaded the covers manually and all fixed now but is it just me and why does/did it happen?

    Because I don't like them either.

    Or maybe they just don't have covers and stuff for it in servers. Because they hate it.

    No offence.

    No, seriously. WiiTDB doesn't have all covers and disc images for all games. There's few other games too in my USB and loader doesn't find covers for them.

    i dont like them either but the wife loves them!

    the problem tho isnt that the server doesnt have them, firstly it does have them as i can see them and download them manually in WiiTDB.com and secondly it doesnt explain why they are allocated random other covers. often when i get a new game the cover isnt on the server yet, so it leaves it blank. it never downloads something else. it doesnt seem to be completely random either, it generally is Silent Hill or SIngitStar Hottest Hits that it downloads for most of them.

    Most of the SingitStar games are CUSTOMs... not all creators made custom cover art, and even if they did, they may not have uploaded it to WiiTDB. You may be able to contribute one, or not...?

    for the THIRD TIME, WiiTDB has the covers on it!!!


    sorry for shouting but its clear in my post that the site has the covers, someone else posts saying maybe it doesnt have the covers, i say for the 2nd time that it clearly does, and then you say maybe it doesnt.


    WiiTDB has the covers. ive manually downloaded them.

    my point is that usbloader gx downloaded random other covers. this is weird, especially as its reproducible.

    What USB loader are you using to download the covers?

    I have see you problem once with wiiflow and in wiiflow i have just to redownload the cover juste for the game and note for all the missing one.

    Maybe a ciorrupt SD card, try to reformat it and redownload
