Problem with USB Loader and SanDisk Cruzer USB key
Since my Wii DVD drive can't read DVD-R and I don't have access to an USB HDD, I managed to get my hand on a SanDisk Cruzer 8GB USB key.
The particularity with this key is that there's a small reserved read-only (CDFS) partition for SanDisk tools that you can't delete, but I don't think it matter since the key model is confirmed to be working.
I started by removing the main partition and creating a new active one with no filesystem in "computer management" under win7.
I tried to use "WBFS Manager 3.0" but when I select the drive and press format, I keep getting this error: "an error has occurred while attempting to format the drive". Not much help.
I then tried "Wii Backup Manager" and it formatted perfectly, copied the game iso, loaded covers, etc.
When using the USB key in the Wii, I start USB Loader CFG and it tells me the drive have 4 partitions, the first one is 2048mb and the 3 others 0mb. The first partition say it don't know the partition type. I then tried to press - to format to WBFS from the USBLoader application and it switched the first partition type to WBFS, but when I load it it say it's empty.
I put the USB key back to my computer. Wii Backup Manager still say the game is in there, MD5 hash still match. WBFS Manager still can't read it. I put it back in the Wii, it still have 4 partitions, the first one still 2048mb, WBFS with no games.
What am I doing wrong?
