    Question I don't understand what the GAMEID is for Configurable USB Loader

    I have Configurable USB Loader installed. When I pick my HDD it has no games found. On the FAQ page Configurable USB Loader - GBAtemp.net (about half way down) it has the Question " I have copied the .iso/.wbfs files to my usb drive but the loader doesn't see them?

    I am having this problem too but for it's answer it says ...

    The files have to be copied to the \wbfs folder on the FAT/NTFS partition.
    These filename layouts are supported:
    D:\wbfs\GAMEID.wbfs
    D:\wbfs\Title [GAMEID].wbfs
    D:\wbfs\Title [GAMEID]\GAMEID.wbfs
    D:\wbfs\GAMEID_Title\GAMEID.wbfs

    Same for .iso:
    D:\wbfs\GAMEID.iso
    D:\wbfs\Title [GAMEID].iso
    D:\wbfs\Title [GAMEID]\GAMEID.iso
    D:\wbfs\GAMEID_Title\GAMEID.iso

    Now I have my iso's under D:\wbfs\xxx.iso But above it has GAMEID, Title [GAMEID], ect.... Now does that mean the iso has to be a specific name or grouping? example: I have a back iso of Super Mario Galaxy 2, and the file location is D:\wbfs\Super Mario Galaxy 2.iso is that correct?

    That is how my iso's are but it is unable to find them on the HDD, or I am doing something else wrong lol.

    easiest way is to stick the retail disc in and dump it directly to your USB HDD.

    You can also read the guide HERE: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...g-playing.html

    When I format the iso to wbfs does that require I format the HDD? Right now it is NTFS and I have about 150Gs of data on it so I don't want to format it, and I can't shrink it.

    I'll buy an 8 or 16G flash drive if needed but I would rather use my external HDD

    That is what I have done right now, but with ntfs. currently my HDD is ntfs and the isos are D:\wbfs\agame.iso. But I have tried both configurable usb loader, and USB Loader GX and neither can find a game, but they can see the drive.

    Okay now I assume RLIP64 is the game id? Because this is my understanding... Every game has it own unique Game ID and if that is true how do you figure its game id out?

    Or if I am wrong Does the RLIP64 have a meaning or can it just be any characters?

    read the guide i linked , use wii game manager or wii backup manager, they will both convet to .wbfs format file (NOT the same as WBFS formatted HDD).
