I believe the Mac also has the capability of running PC stuff, yes? What you need (both in terms of proper formatting/configuring and in terms of proper splitting of image) can be found here.
I have searched around the forum and all over the internet to help me resolve this problem but it hasn't worked. I am trying to run my backed up version of SSBB (Super Smash Bros Brawl). I am a Mac user so use Wii backup fusion to put my backups onto my hard drives and USBs. I'm using formatted USBs/Hard Drive in FAT32. When I plug in my USB to my Wii and try to run the game using CFG USB Loader, I get the message "hd num sector doesn't match" and then the loader quits. I have tried formatting again and putting the game back onto the USB. I have also tried this with 2 memory sticks and 1 hard drive, all which work with other backed up games that I have and can play them with no problems. I know its not my disc that I am backing up as my friend kindly let me borrow his copy but still I have had no luck. My Wii has lost the capability to read disks so I have backed up my games using my Mac. Ive done this with all my games and had no problems. The only reason that I can think may be causing the problem is that the game needs to split when transferring onto the memory stick and this seems to be causing problems. This is really frustrating for me so if someone can please try and help me solve this, I would be more than grateful.
Thank you for the quick reply, however I followed that guide when I first starting using the USB loader to play games and I have had no problems with any of my games until now.
Maybe your source that you are working with is bad and needs to be reripped?
Ive ripped over 10 games and not had a problem with a single one, the disk is perfect condition, it just seems although my loader doesn't seem to agree with a split .wbfs file. This is the first time I have attempted to play a split file and then just get the "hd num sector" error.
Have you tried ripping it directly from the disk using one of the USB loaders? or you extracting the .iso differently and doing something else with it. If the latter hasn't worked for you, try the former.
My Wii can no longer read discs, just due to old age and so I cant use the loader itself to rip the game
Which region of SSBB is it? Knowing that, we can find the md5 hash of the full .iso file so you can use that to validate the quality of your source.
Its NTSC. What exactly do you mean when you say "validate the quality of your source"??
Your md5 hash should be one of these two:
(depending on if it's version 1.0 or version 1.02)
If it's neither, then your source .iso file is bad.
