    What does a .sfv file do?

    Hello All,

    I got a game of the correct size (4.37gb) that I burned, and it wont play.
    When I downloaded it, it had an extra file with a .sfv suffix.

    Dont know if there is something I should do with the .sfv file.

    Can someone help??

    Thanks in advance.

    a sfv file is a Simple file verification (SFV) is a file format for storing CRC32 checksums of files SFV is used to verify that a file has not been corrupted,

    maybe bad burn or inproperly installed modchip because it doesent work you might want to get pro help

    A .sfv file is used by a program called QuickPar to verify all of the parts of a download are present.

    Javi2828,
    I have a WiiKey2 modchip on my Wii.
    I dont believe it's a problem with the modchip as I can play all backups.
    I can even play NSMB.

    I never had a problem with the media either. I use Verbatim dvd-r.

    I downloaded the necessary rar files which included a seperate .sfv file.
    Didn't really pay much attention to the .sfv files because when I unrared all the files, I got a single files totaling 4.37gb.
    It burned fine. When I tried it on my Wii, it gave an error.
    I believe it said that the disc was unreadable. Yet, all other discs play. (both originals and backups)
