    I put one game on my HD to test it out, it loaded up fine, I put a few more games on and was sitting there at a loading screen for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes nothing loaded up I just turned off my wii.

    This just started happening and I'm not sure why. Whenever I try to download the cover art for games, after it is done downloading my wii screen goes black and there is white writing. I can play games fine, but I can't download cover art.

    Compressed ISO files

    Okay, so this is an update to my last post.

    I finally tried downloading a full size (4.3 gb) ISO file and transferring it using WBFS Manager, and the game worked flawlessly.

    However, I then tried downloading a compressed version (1.1 GB) of Excitebots, and it did not work.

    Is there something I am missing in order to make the compressed versions work? Or am I better off just downloading full size files from now on?

    gen3sf?

    Oh sorry, I'm not able to get the full size on. It compresses it as well.

    The only difference here is the size of the file I started with.

    Final Fantasy Chronicles The Crystal Bearer was listed as just an ISO, while Excitebots was listed as compressed.

    Because NeoGamma did start up for you, I will presume that you successfully installed the cIOS (it should read IOS249rev14 along the bottom on the loader screens).

    You apparently have one of the newer Wiis? The ones that have problems with both the D3-2 chip so a DVD backup can;t be read and also can't install loaders as channel wads. That's what I think I see going back through the posts. So, install the HBC version of cfg USB Loader-right now it seems to be doing better for some of the troublesome Wiis. Don't use Waninkoko's USB/SD Loader-it's too old. The more updated USB Loaders are USB Loader GX and cfg USB Loader. Right now-for you-go with cfg. Link provided at end of tutorial. Use the folder with the boot.dol in it.

    Edit-I just re=read your NeoGamma post-doesn;t read like you started NeoGamma and then loaded the disc-if you had, the disc would not have loaded the the normal disc channel. So, key question, do your loaders load up and display IOS249rev14 on the screen? If so, then you have installed cIOS successfully. The issue then looks more the cfg USB Loader should be given a try-in the boot.dol version, first.

    There are ISO files that are just scrubbed and compressed; those should load fine with WBFS Mgr if the file is not compromised in some way.

    There is another file format that has the extension .ciso where the c stands for compressed; is that the file format you are working with? If so, WBFS Mgr does not recognized the .ciso file format. WBFS Intelligent GUI and ncWBFSTools are two variants of WBFS Mgr that can recognize the ciso file format.
