    OP started this trying to get his games back (like title states), then it drifted into what it is now
    he's trying to get the settings right under usb loader gx, not cfg usb loader,

    Krank, do you know if it matters where the .wbfs games are located on the hdd? for the loaders to recognize them
    because if it has to be in a specific spot, then sounds like wiibackupmanager didn't copy them to that right spot

    OK when i connected the drive to wiibackupmanager it automatically created a WBFS folder and the games went in there, i have some Wii scrubbed games plus many retail games, after just trying again USB loader GX was asking to select a partion which i done but no games still showing, and when i press 1 up come 4 options for the covers 2D, 3D etc and 1 again does nothing.

    Try Cfg loader to see if it makes a difference. Install from the FAT32 guide or the guide in my signature.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    You know this is slighty annoying me now after having my harddrive partition wiped, 12 hours scanning recovery to no avail and reading what is the simple GUIDE to FAT32 and its not working, im stumpped, i reckon it has to be a incompatibility issue between my Wii and the harddrive myself. After some sleep i shall try another harddrive and try this one giving me trouble formatted to WBFS. Ps WHY does it say in the FAT32 Guide If you're using Windows 7 64 Bit (OR a Flash Drive) use the "Alternate Formatting Option 1 or Option 2" Below, because i used the Main method Easeus Partition Master and it worked perfect on Windows 7 Ultimate 64.

    I've always said this and I think folks get things confused. There's two components in such a setup: the enclosure (chipset) and the HD. Most often if there's a compatbility issue, it lies more with the former than the latter. I've not eyeballed your particulars, but it's enough an issue to be worthwhile in repeating.

    Well how strange is this ive just installed a game from disk to see where it is putting them and sure enough its in the WBFS folder on the root of the drive ie all games in their own individual folder in the WBFS folder on the root, but that is also the same place i copied across the Wii scrubbed games using Wiibackupmanager and have just tried to recopy the games but this time changed the setting in Wiibackupmanager to 'store all files in a single folder' so when it copies the wii scrubbs across they are just the files showing and not in their own folder, and NOW the games are showing up on my Wii, but whats weird is when i installed the 1 game that shows up on my Wii but is in its own folder. That makes no sense to me

    You must have the pro version rather then the version included in the guide.

    Again, if this was a WBFS formatted HDD then easeus won't help.

    Question

    Greets all I have the same problem with WBFS. I started to format the wrong drive letter with windows disk management before I realized what I had done... but I canceled it quickly.. Now I cannot access the drive with any WBFS manager at all.... Sure would like to recover from my error somehow anyone got any idea for the non programer here??? ... BTW doesn't fat32 require more storage space for your games since most of them are all around 4.6 gb When I use WBFS it removes the garbage data and reduces the size so I can fit more in the same space... Isn't fat 32 limited in this respect?? Thanks all....
