    So i'm having an issue. I'M USING A MAC
    I have a FAT32 formatted USB which holds approx. 4.01 GB and it has 1 partition titled "WII GAMES"
    The file on it is Super_Mario_Sunshine_(USA).iso
    Whenever I go on USBLoader GX it shows the menu screen but it says I have 0 games. (The USB is plugged into the correct port.)

    I have tried using a WBFS format for the USB but I am unable to put the iso on it :/

    WiiFloader doesn't work because it says "USB isn't wbfs format".

    HELP!

    Disc images have to be named correctly and put in the right folder.

    You should really use the main USB Loader GX thread that's pinned to the top of this forum. (Read the intro post first!)

    You cannot put ISO files on a WBFS partition. Use FAT32.

    Format it to FAT32, do note that any stuff you have on it will be wiped during the formatting.

    I use CFG USB Loader with an NTFS harddrive and .wbfs files for my games instead of .iso. everything works flawlessly. Maybe give it a try..? And did you install the IOS2xx CIOS's?

    Use FAT32 or preferably NTFS (The one I use). You games should look like this: <you usb drive>\wbfs\Mario Kart Wii [RMCP01]\RMCP01.WBFS

    That's and example using mario kart wii.

    Convert your iso to WBFS using wbfsmanager

    WBFS Manager is not userfriendly and hangs so much. Use Wii Game Manager which is a lot better. And I'm pretty sure WBFSmanager doesn't allow you to convert iso to wbfs and vice versa (Last time I used it was 3 years ago though).

    guys calm down! he just don't know how to load the hdd in the software program, he doesn't understand it can't work without linking the software to the drive letter first.
    and if you all read his post fully you'd know he's using an apple, so all win apps won't help him.
    since i got a windows pc i can't show you houw it connects, but there should be a place where you can put dhe drive you use, or just bwose to the device. if that's done, then you can open your iso's, or wbfs for what it matteres (wbfs will let some games be unplayable). and i'd recommend using fat32 for wii games, for gc you'll need to be more precise (i doubt i can explain it easy enough for you).
