    USB Loader GX | Not all games appearing

    Hello,

    I recently purchased a 16 GB thumb drive and used WBFS manager to format the drive to WBFS and installed Super Paper Mario and Super Smash Bros Brawl.

    Here's my problem: when I have the hard drive in the wii (right-most USB port looking at it from the back) only Super Mario Galaxy 2 appears in USB Loader GX, which is the only game that I installed right on the Wii. But when I use Neogamma r9 v56, all three games appear. I'd much rather use USB Loader GX due to it's more-impressive interface, so can somebody help me out here? Thanks.

    May be JUST the "favorite" games were shown. Check your usbloader-GX settings.

    Well, I never tampered with any of the favorites settings. I definitely never marked Super Mario Galaxy as a favorite

    Which program did you use to backup the discs?

    Instead of using WBFS manager, use Wii Backup Manager, every game I tried installing using WBFS failed, but when I tried Wii Backup Manager they worked fine. Might have been something I was doing wrong but idk.
    Also, what file system does that 16 GB drive have ? Fat32, or did you format it to WBFS ?

    He said its WBFS, WBFS is just problematic which is why I stopped using it and switched to the better FAT32...that and FAT32 supports all Wii Homebrew.

    Oh, he did ? Don't know how I missed that, but yeah, I agree that FAT32 is pretty much the superior file system when it comes to the Wii.

    So, what program should I use to re-format it, and what backup managing application is compatible with FAT32? And do I have to re-format all my games as well? My wii lens can't read dual layered discs anymore so I can't backup the original disc again without resorting to torrents. Oh, and why is WBFS problematic?

    I recommend Wii Backup Manager , just click download there, wait 6 seconds for the ad to pass, and it will let you download it.

    As for formatting, you can use EaseUS Partition Master ( link ) ,
    just format the drive to FAT32, with a 32KB cluster size, be sure to set the partition with the games on it to Active and Primary.

    Use EASEUS & Wii Backup Manager to format your drive add your games as recommended by DiscMurderer

    Nope, you can extract the WBFS games from you WBFS drive, format the drive to FAT32 and add the games back on as WBFS files again (wbfs games work on a fat32 drive as well, all my wii games are WBFS)

    Just in my experience, I have had WBFS drives corrupt several times for no reason. I have only had a fat32 drive corrupt 1 time and it was cause the drive went into sleep mode while VBAGX was trying to save to it...I have since corrected that problem and have not had anymore issues.
