    I believe this was happening on his wii:

    All I get is a black screen and a slight Green Horizontal blip of a line.

    SUCCESS

    I guess I am just odd like that. iso files shouldn't be split in my mind. and the games play from the wbfs files so they don't have to be split either.
    I was also having trouble with Cfg Loader not finding the cover files even though they were entered in the config.text and meta.xml files on the usb\usb_loader\covers\xxx paths as they should be. I even changed the usb to ntfs1 in those 5 entries on both files to see if they could be found. No good, they just couldn't be found by Cfg Loader. Download all missing covers would give the dump black screen error too. So I did the partition with 100 GB for Fat32 for all my hack files and HBC HBBrowser tools and apps. and the rest as NTFS with just the iso, wbfs and Cfg loader folders in the NTFS partition.
    Everything now works as it should. The HBC tools and apps as well as Game Manager can be used off the Fat32 drive as they should and the cover files can be found there by Cfg Loader without trouble. The game discs can be saved to the wbfs folder in the NTFS partition from Cfg Loader without trouble. No iso has to be split so that feels right to me too. It isn't really any more complicated than having on drive once it is done so I'm happy with it. Plus I have more than one Wii to implement this across in different locations. this way all the files are in one place no matter where I go.

    EDIT......This also allows for not needing an SD card in the deck at all......EDIT

    Thanks,
    Bud

    Any particular reason you have to remove the existing partition instead of just reformatting it (or using it outright if it's already FAT32)?

    not really, the biggest point is making sure it is set active and primary

    Hey sorry for skipping out after posting, I really didn't expect to see any replies that quick I finally gave it up about 3:30am my time and now I'm started back in on it. I suppose we are all in different parts of the world with multiple time zones though.

    Okay I tried this, I got the SD card out of one of my other Wii's (we have 4 of them all softmoded with the MauiFrog method/Tut. here on Wiihacks.com) I placed it in my Wii in question ----->I also unplugged the HDD and I didn't have anything plugged in the USB port at this point.
    ---->click on HBC in Wii Channel menu
    ------>Nothing but the Bubble screen. I then turned the Wii off
    ------>put my USB Stick back in and clicked on HBC in Channels and HB apps and all load up.
    ------>This poses a particular problem because I can't just run my HB and apps from SD nor my HDD because to get HB working I have the USB slot tied up.

    This seems crazy to me but it may be just the information that someone with more experience than me needs to diagnose the problem.

    Just to be clear, here is what I did with my HDD:
    ---->I had a brand new 500GB HDD and it came formatted NTFS of course.
    ---->I connected it to my laptop---->Opened EASEUS Pro
    ---->Right clicked the drive letter--->Deleted the Partition---->It then showed unallocated
    ---->I clicked on that unallocated space---->Created a partition----->FAT32---->10GB--->Primary---->named it and all that---->set it to active
    ---->I then created the NTFS partition on what was left (ie:490??Gb)---->Primary-----named etc but did not set to active
    ---->confirmed all of those settings and let it do it's thing.---->Laptop recognizes all of it---->can write and delete to it etc.

    ---->I can right click on the two different partitions and check the properties, they both show like I set them in EASEUS --->FAT32 &/or NTFS respectively.

    I placed the SD card in the Wii thinking that maybe I could load the HB from there and see if I could at least find the game on the NTFS part of the HDD but as you have read, it only sees the HB apps on my USB Stick. At first I literally copied and pasted the exact file structure from the Stick to the FAT32 part of HDD.

    Since then I have deleted all of the info on the FAT32 part and started from scratch with the file structure like it should be and still no luck.

    I apologize if this is lengthy but I am just trying to provide as much info as I can to help you, help me.

    Thanks,
    Cabinetmaster

    Is there any way that you could post your File structure that you have on your NTFS Partition for me? & your FAT32 if you are willing. Maybe I can tell what I did wrong from looking at yours.

    Hey Cabinetmaster,
    Here is what I have. I am using the spoiler tag for the first time so bear with me here. Not sure how to title the spoiler yet but.
    Here is a JPG of the explorer file structure.
    You may also notice that the WD 750 drive also still has the VCD at "CD Drive (H: ) WD SmartWare" Makes me mad at WD that it can't be removed and the space free for MY use.
    If you have one of these WD drives with "SmartWare", make sure you use the smartware to disable any passwords you have attached to the drive under the security settings. Unlocked is not good enough because the security will come on when powered down and your Wii can't unlock it.

    P.S. If someone could point me to the syntax for titling a spoiler I would appreciate it.

    Spoiler



    Here is a copy of my CFG Loader V70 config.txt file in "F:\usb-loader" or WII_NTFS drive partition described in the config.text file as NTFS1 if that helps you too. <<...EDIT...>> These files were generated by checking all of the tick boxes on every tab in "CfgLoaderConfigurator.exe" program and clicking "Generate config.txt with All Options" and in the Meta Arguments tab, again with all the tick boxes in every tab ticked and "Write meta.xml" button. It is not necessary to tick all the boxes in every tab, just the ones you change but I wanted full documentation of what the system was using. I should probably also point out I am running CFG Loader V 70.

    Spoiler



    and finally the text of Cfg Loader V70 meta.xml in "F:\apps\USBLoader" or WII_NTFS drive partition. I am not certian how these work exactly but for different content or settings one has priority over the other and for other content it is reversed. I just try to make sure if I change one that I change the other.

    Spoiler



    I left the duplicate of the covers folder in the NTFS drive path just in case CFG had a problem with it missing.

    I'm including the text in "F:\usb-loader\settings.cfg" because I had some trouble getting the theme to stay as selected and that setting is in there as well.

    Spoiler



    Hope this helps,
    Bud
