    Unhappy Need help with games on usb device, loader not finding wads

    Ok, so ive looked everywhere and tried different programs and cant seem to get this going.

    I installed home brew, it is up and running on my new black wii. I also have CFG USB loader on my channels as well,

    I have a usb stick, fat32, i made a folder called wbfs, i have 4 wads in there, i also have the 4 wads just in the root directory.

    I plug it into my wii system, it sees the disc just fine, but it says no games are on it.

    So are they in the wrong format or what, ive been going at this since 8am this morning, ive tried everythign i can think of but it still wont find the games, what am i doing wrong.

    please help me

    well, these are all virtual console games i got from a site cause my old wii died and im not forking up another 100 to nintendo. So i went and downloaded them.

    But when i download them, they are in .wad format, so how to i get them to wbfs format, do i just rename them, ive tried like 6 different programs and none seem to work

    try calling nintendo, tell them what happened and see if they can transfer your titles after they verify you purchased them.

    yea, i did, they pretty much told me im SOL. Each purchased is specific to that system, so i lost about 100 in games and 600 points. Pretty much they told me i can send them the system and try to get it repaird, but it would take about 2 weeks and cost about 75.00, so if they cant fix it, id still get my system back with a new drive, but not wiht any of my vc games. tahts why im trying it this way.

    We do not support Piracy in any Form! You have downloaded files that are not in the native format that come from the wiishop channel... Nintendo has a database that keeps all the info if you are truly telling us the truth about purchashing the games, that if you call them like shift_lock suggested then you will have no problem getting them back!

    Thanks
