    I have a 2GB SanDisk card, but I can't fit 11GB of WADs on it...

    I'd like to have all my WADs readily available to install, and since there's plenty of room on my 640GB hard drive, I want to be able to do that. Using the SD card as a shuffle medium is a workaround, but not a solution to the problem. In other words, I want to make this work, so I'd appreciate help with solving the problem. I know how to work around it...

    put your wads on your usb:
    usb\wad\wad files
    when you use wad manager pick load from usb
    if your had drive's is all wbfs, reformat it and make 2 partitions, one wbfs and fat or ntfs for the other, or just use one(search guide on this one, you can load games using ntfs or fat)

    I'm also having this exact problem, Error (ret = -1), when I try to access WADs on my USB HDD. I've tried it with WAD Manager 1.5 and 1.6a, but get the error either way. On my SD card, it works fine. Also, on my SD card, the WADs are in a folder called "wad" -- should they also be in a folder called "wad" on the root of the FAT32 partition or just loose on the root of the FAT32 partition? And yes, I've read this post and have set the FAT32 partition to be "active", but am still having no luck... Is there a size limit for the partition so that WAD Manager can see it? My partition is currently set to 16GB.

    Thanks for any help!

    As you can see, I have cIOSXv19 installed (with base 38), and Hermes cIOS v5, so I don't see what the problem could be with WAD Manager not seeing the USB drive. Please, if anyone has any thoughts on this, I would very much appreciate if you could reply here. Thanks!

    Mekee,

    As you can see from my first post back on page 2 (and quoted above), I already did all that and know how it's supposed to work. Unfortunately, when I select to load from USB in WAD Manager, I get the -1 error. On my second post, also quoted above, I mention that I have cIOSXv19 installed and working, and that I also have the four Hermes IOSs (v5), so I'm at a loss as to why I'm having this problem...

    I am relatively new to Wii hacking, but I think I have a reasonable grasp about the whole process. What I don't have is the deep knowledge about IOSs and what they do that a lot of the other members here have. Hopefully one of you experts can make some suggestions of things to try and we can figure out this weird problem!

    Thumbs up

    Mekee,

    I tried with cIOS38v17 and had the same problem. But after going back to cIOSXv19, I found the solution, or at least a solution... I found that using IOS36 in WAD Manager allows me to see and install/uninstall WADs from the USB drive!

    Of course, I'm not sure why IOS36 works and IOS249 doesn't, but I'll take it for now. I originally used DOP-Mii to install the fakesigned IOS36, but I don't know if that has anything to do with this problem.

    So, even though I've found a solution, I would still love to hear from any experts out there about why only IOS36 works.

    Cheers!

    thank you so very much

    with falvesjr's bit on the IOS36 reading the USB, and with the help of the Wad Manager 1.5 Lan Edition, i finally got my WADs installed. Oddly, i was looking into the lan edition to simply move them from my PC to the HBC over my home network, but it didnt work because my router is terrible. But i stumbled upon this thread and saw this. Thanks so much!! i now have 8GB of app space. Hopefully this works for others
