What sites have legit ISO games that are free? thanks so much
    did you unpack the games before trying to load them into wbfs? Most files will come as a rar.

    THis has happened to me with my external before.

    1. Unallocate the drive
    2. give it a letter but do not format it
    3. hit cancel when it asks if you want the system to format it
    4. open WBFS on PC
    5. DO NOT HIT LOAD DRIVE
    6. select the drive you want to use if not already selected
    7. hit format (should take 2 secs)
    8. now LOAD the drive so you can browse and add

    let me know if this works for you...i was getting the same errors and that process seemed to fix things up

    Well that is where I am not finding it actually. When I go to winrar to open it its not showing as a file to unpack.

    it's ok but thank you for the help, I'll just have to find another homebrew painting game.

    If your game is a homebrew game, it does not go onto the WBFS-formatted drive. Homebrew games are not game ISOs, of course, and you would be better off using the Homebrew Browser to directly download and install to the Wii-it will either go onto the SD card or if you created a FAT32 partition and have your Apps folder there, then homebrew utilities, emulators, games, etc will be downloaded and installed there by Homebrew browser.
