    Neogamma's "Storage Read1 Failed" off of SDHC Card

    Hey,
    I have a soft-modded 4.3U Wii that I recently wiped the dust off of. I used to play my backups off of my 32gb sd card but have been having issues lately. I'm getting a "Storage Read1 Failed" with NeoGamma [R9 b56, d2x56v10 (249)]. Here's some of the details:


    When I soft-modded the Wii, I forgot exactly what all I did (I think 'letterbomb') but I did install: homebrew, pimp my wii, misc emu's and so forth. I also remember installing .wad's, cios files and some other signed trauncha files (or something like that).


    Now, I have 2 partitions on my sd card: Fat32 [[Primary, Active]], WBSF [[Primary, Inactive]]. I use PartitionMagic for the partitions, and "I understand that you can create a wbsf folder in the root of your card and throw your backup .wbsf files in the folder, but I haven't had any luck in that area. I do have the files in the directory, but I also have them installed in my wbsf partition. I use "Wii Game Manager" and "WBSF manager" to mess with my backup transfers.


    When the sd card is inserted in my computer and the right drive is active, I can see the list of my games. When I throw the card in the wii, bring up NeoGamma and try to read from the SDHC card, I get a "Storage Read1 Failed". Is there anything that I can try to get this to work - either the WBSF partition, or the wbsf folder files? I've tried different things, tinkering with the options, but haven't had much luck. Any help is appreciated!


    Misc Info:
    --Does neogamma boot? Is neogamma a channel or from a forwarder? [[Neogamma is a channel on the main screen; it boots fine, but when I select <<Load From SD/SDHC>> it gives me that error]]
    --What about USB loader? [[I tried Configurable USB Loader and it didn't recognize a USB Device...after all, it's a SDHC Card. I've also tried USB Loader GX and it didn't recognize a HDD>>
    --Is the sd card on the compatability list? [[I've used this card for games before - it recently crashed]]
    --Is it the latest version of neogamma? [[I think]]
    --Have you booted the game before off a different device? [[Nope, but like I said: it worked on this one before]]

    Update: I copied my core files off of my SD card and threw them onto a USB stick. I inserted that in the back of the wii and opened Configurable USB Loader. The issue that I'm having now is that it's only reading my WBSF partition on my SD card, not the files in the WBSF folder on the card. Any way around this? I'd like to eliminate the WBSF partition in whole and keep my Fat32..

    I think NeoGamma can only read from a Wii Backup File System (WBFS), i think the games need to be in ISO file format.

    NeoGamma is considered outdated (i still use it for loading GameCube games from DVD). I use Configurable USB Loader (cfg) for loading Wii games from SD. Cfg will load games from a FAT32 file system (no more game manager). It can also rip and load games from DVD.

    EDIT: Being that you have backed up everything off of your SD card. I would reformat it with a FAT32 file system. Then put an apps folder on there with all your favorite apps, and a wbfs folder with your wbfs files in it or re-rip them with cfg, or put them on your USB drive.

    I forget the option, but you'll have to go into the settings in CFG to tell it to look in a different partition. I can look in the morning if you've not found it by then, but I don't know it off the top of my head.

    Once CFG is loaded up, enter or select the following:

    • 1 button on remote
    • System button on right side of screen
    • "Device" button on top of left side of screen (would should SD card for you, I would guess)
    • Left or Right on remote's d-pad until "USB Mass Storage Device" appears in the upper-right.
    • A button on remote
    • If multiple partitions exist, will prompt for which one to mount. If not, repeat the process and choose "Partition" button instead of "Device" in the third bullet

    Hey people,
    Problem solved! As instructed, I opened CFG and went to the options - I selected SD card and everything worked great! Since then, I've added a USB HDD and everything is smooth as can be.

    Once agian, thanks for all the help on the wbfs partition, guys!
