    Wii USB loader help

    Hi

    Not sure if this is the right place...

    Its been a while since I used our wii but the kids are really getting into it now but the dvd drive doesn't spin so was using wbfs manager 2.0 on my old pc I have a new pc and installed 3.0 but having trouble playing games off the usb stick I reformatted the drive to wbfs format and transferred some old just dance games that used to work on dvd and Mario kart but the only thing that works is Mario kart. when I tried just dance 14by its self it worked fine but with Mario it doesn't, its there you click it but it just says reading disc error? Is there a special way of using 3.0 for multiple games or do I need to install some other bits?

    I have an old 4.2E I think from memory its been a while since I messed around with the wii.

    Sorry if its in the wrong section....

    Thanks

    Wbfs format is no longer recommended. You should follow our fat32 guide for formatting and installing games to your device. The guide is located in our tutorials section.

    You should also make sure your mod is current. If it's still at 4.2, the mod likely is old (as we recommend you downgrade to 4.1, that tells us you didn't follow our guide in the first place).

    The softmod Any Wii guide and the FAT32 guide are linked in my signature.

    Ok I started again reinstalled the hb channel and followed the guides step by step and with success!! I got everything done and downgraded back to 4.1 then I kept trying to boot Mario through Wii Flow and it kept saying it was Just Dance 2014 so after 3 reformats and installs through Wii Backup Manager I found the recache option by accident (after pulling my hair out and shouting at the console)
    So my new issue on 2 separate usb sticks which I followed the FAT32 guide I have Mario Kart and Just Dance 2014 when I put the older Just Dance 2 on the same stick as Mario it fails to boot it starts you get to the white safety screen then goes black and you have to reset the console I know the usb sticks work but when I do them on the same they fail. I know the sticks I have are cheap ones but they work with 1 game so why not 2? Am I adding them wrong or is there something obvious that I'm not doing?

    Also a random second question in the backup manager what's the point of being able to get the covers if you still have to use the console to download them? Just seems a little silly?

    Thanks again...
