    Thanks, Wulfie. Yes, sorry about the typo. NO harm in installing Hermes IOS and might be needed in the future for music games.

    Homebrew will look to your active FAT partition if there is no SD card in the slot. To have HBC treat the FAT partition as a SD card, the file structure needs to be just as it would be on the SD card. In other words-keep a root structure, Apps folder with the homebrew apps in their folders so that HBC can display each app as a menu item, a Wad folder for your wad files, Images, Covers etc folders just as though the FAT partition was the SD card.

    Easiest way for the first time is to get the Wii, USB Loader, and anything else up and working just as you want and then copy all the SD card contents as is over to the FAT partition (a select all and copy all command from your PC will be the easiest).

    partition your hdd first. depending on how big your hdd is will determine how big you should make the fat32 partition. I have a 500gb usb hdd that I made a 10gb fat32 partition on and used the rest for wbfs. Once you've partitioned your drive, it's as simple as copying the contents of your sd card to the fat32 partition.

    Lightbulb New..bie

    Hello, i just softmodded my Wii. I have everything installed and running. I have set up my HDD for GX Loader, I can make backups of my own games on there, although some of them will not load. black screen.
    I have an ISO file, that i use with WBFS Manager when i copy it to my hard drive it copies only 35mb of 4.xxGB. When i go to launch ( play the game) i get a black screen.
    Can someone shine some light to help me out? Thanks

    kenny - You are missing or have a lower revision game IOS http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...s-use-run.html

    I think Animal Crossing has one of the smallest game footprints. WiiSports/WiiPlay/NSMB are close behind. All games take 4.37GB but have variable amounts of crap data on the disc to pad it out. WBFS removes this crap data.

    You can run signcheck (search using that word on google) to check which IOS you have currently and our IOS thread I linked to, to verify which versions games use.

    Every game in existence uses just one IOS to run all it's commands, and there are several different versions of these IOS. Installing the highest version is normally sufficient to run all games. Never uninstall an IOS, just install a newer version on top.

    Most newer games, as you will see, run on IOS53, 55 or 56. Older ones used IOS33 and 36 and really old ones used IOS9.

    You do not need to change the game ISO, you change your Wii's IOS. Once updated your Wii will play most games without issue.

    So I just softmodded my wii and set up my new hdd and whatnot. When I ran it through usb loader gx, I got a really quick error message could not find IOS 236 something something. Then it went to the 30 second timer for mounting the HDD and it wouldn't mount. I can't really see what I'm doing wrong.
