    USB Loaders load the basic game ISO, the extraneous junk bits used to expand a game up to the DVD standard of 4.37GB are removed as is the update partition. That is why games on the HDD do not ask to do an update-no priiloader block is needed. In softmodded Wiis, the responsibility of installing IOSes needed by games is yours as allowing a disc update will overwrite the softmods.

    WBFS manager not able to load HDD

    Heyo,

    I read through about 20 pages of comments and couldn't find this problem yet...

    In WBFS Manager, when I click on LOAD or FORMAT I get Error messages.
    LOAD: "Error occurred while loading drive. Make sure Drive is not in use or open and that it has been formatted to WBFS format."
    FORMAT: "An error occurred while attempting to format the drive."

    I've gone through the steps in the tutorial over and over, and made sure nothing else is using this HDD. The one thing I've noticed is that in my Disk Management, the Drive (F) is listed as healthy and Primary, but it doesn't state active, like my C drive does. When I right click, the option to "Mark partition as active" is greyed out.

    Thoughts? Thanks in advance.

    Games keep crashing

    Hi, I've followed the guide and have loaded some games on my HDD but they all keep crashing. I've tried tiger woods 2010, wii sports resort, Ashes and F1. The farest I've gone is with tiger woods and was able to play a couple of holes before it crashed. The others I can't get into the game.

    With ashes it keeps crashing at random places such as the loading screens. I've got the save file fix and it let me get into the game but it keeps crashing.

    With F1 it pauses on the loading screen before the track.

    Have I gone wrong somewhere or am i not using the right IOS's. I think the problem might be that I'm using a laptop Hard Drive that I got an enclosure for. Would that be the problem?

    @vinylpants-you have found the probably source of your problem-your WBFS drive partition is not active. Maybe a formatting issue or the drive has some problem preventing a partition from being activated-is there a hidden boot partition maybe?

    @simon-I was thinking internal HDD and enclosure when you ID'ed your drive in the last paragraph. That combination aside from just incompatible HDD gives the most problems. One source of problem is that internal HDDs have powersaving schemes-the Wii does not send an "in use" signal to the HDD like a PC does and so the HDD powersdown. sleeps or whatever to save power-freezing the Wii in the game. If your HDD has a utility disc that allows the power mode to be adjusted-do so-set power or sleep to NEVER or something really long. Enclosures can also cause problems mating with the Wii. Check your combo with the compatibility link.

    @gen3sf: Awesome, that steered me in the right direction. The drive was out of a macbook, so still had a 200mb partition on there. Did a little google research on that, and now it all works, Thanks!

    thanks fr ur reply. I've checked the compatabilty list and some seem to work and others don't. It's definitlely the hard drive thats causing the problem. I've just tried f1 off an sd card and it worked perfectly first time.

    Is there anyway I can fix this?

    You may use the entire HDD for WBFS if that is your wish. WBFS Manager reports support for HDD drives up 1 TB. Some members have reported no problems with the WD and Seagate 1.5TB drive partitions.

    If the HDD is of questionable compatibility, I don't see a reliable fix-we might get it running for awhile, but it will fail at some unpredictable time and repeatedly. I siggest you get a compatible HDD you will get much more enjoyment from it compared with hours of frustration.
