    I have installed / reinstalled multiple times Haxchi and every time I load WUP to try and install a game it will not see any folders but a folder from the initial install of the homebrew channel loader. It doesn't seem it would be the format of the card or the brand since I have been able to install haxchi + homebrew channel loader up to this point. I also was able to install redNAND and Mocha CF with this same card but still having the same issue. To download games I have been using Wii U USB helper and also used the Tik program. Please help. I have tried to re-install haxchi, dump my NAND 3 times now to run Mocha on redNAND, have tried to install the games through straight haxchi and mocha. The card is a Samsung EVO 128gb.

    what version of wup installer are you using? only wup installer y mod and wup installer gx2 allow the use of folders the original wup installer does not work with folders.

    Have you tried to remove the folder it can see, just for shits and giggles.

    What does your sd card structure look like? Specifically what do you have inside of your "install" folder. That's what wup installer uses. If you downloaded some all in one then you probably still have the HBL channel install files in there.

    You have to replace those files with the games that you downloaded. One at a time with wup installer. You can use folders with wup installer y mod

    Yes I have removed the folder it can see and it just lists "install" the name of the parent folder

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I used Wii U USB Helper which individually lists the games/folders and I have them double check for file integrity. I have the typical wii u, install and haxchi file structure on my card. Whats weird is that I have been able to install EVERYTHING until this point and can even install one folder in the install folder the "homebrew channel loader" its just any folder thats downloaded by the Wii USB Helper or Tik. So frustrating.

    Can you list how your folder structure look?

    Example

    Sd:\install\super mario\(files, no subfoldes in here)

    I am also having the same issue. I use USB helper and it installs the game into the install folder but with its own folder like install > Kirby xxxxxx.
    When i load up the WUP installer i cant install the game.
    Please help.

    +3 here. I'm also using USB Helper and it automatically places game, update and DLC folders into my SD card under the "install" folder and I have the same problem where wup installer only gives me the option to mark "install".

    Seems to be a recurring issue that unfortunately hasn't been resolved yet.

    I hope that this isn't the case, but in case that it's lack of attention at wup installer y mod and wiiu usb helper you have to press up/down to navigate through folders, and right to select the folder to install. Or you can press + and it will select all sub directories at sd\install, those programs will actually show only 1 sub directory at it's interface.

    It wasn't as careless as suggested, but it's almost as bad. Basically I just followed this:

    I deleted all the "loose" files that were on there from the initial CFW install and after I did that, I could scroll through and see every single folder that Wii U USB Helper put in there. I just assumed the OP tried that, yet he still had errors and therefore deleting those files wouldn't have helped.

    Yeah you've gotta browse the list, this has nothing to do with Usb Helper, it's just the way Wup Installer mod Y works :)
