    Why are you posting in this thread if you ignore the suggestions I've given you?
    It is very likely that your thumbdrive is damaged.
    Flash memory as used in thumbdrives has a limited life span. I don't know exactly what happens when it reaches the end of that life, but file corruption due to write errors seems very likely.

    If you are NOT using a USB cable or hub
    AND the same thumbdrive in two different computers DOES have problems (yes)
    AND a different thumbdrive does NOT have problems
    THEN: your thumbdrive is broken.

    Until you TRY a different thumbdrive, as I requested, you will not know if the thumbdrive is the problem, and there is nothing anyone can do to help you.
    If your thumbdrive is broken, you need a new one.

    Wrong. Read the FAQ in the third post of this guide. No space is saved using a WBFS formatted drive.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Help, i cannot click "delete volume" when in disk management (it is grayed out). When i try to use Acronis True Image Home, i click "Add New Disk" but my usb flashdrive wont show up on the list (the only thing there is my computer hardrive)

    In disk management just select New partition and go from there. Or if that doesn't work you can just format the flash drive to FAT32 normally....should work without deleting anything.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    It's easy to test this for yourself.
    I created a new WBFS partition, and copied a game I have backed up in CISO format both to the WBFS partition and a Fat32 partition:

    game 1
    CISO = 678mb
    WBFS = 680mb
    FAT32 = 680mb (WBFS file)

    game 2
    CISO = 40mb
    WBFS = 44mb
    FAT32 = 42mb (WBFS file)

    game 3
    CISO = 6.92gb
    WBFS = 6.93gb
    FAT32 = 6.92gb (WBFS file)

    According to these figures, FAT32 actually takes up LESS space.

    I think the reason why i cannot delete volume/ create new partition was because i was using a SanDisk Cruzer USB flash drive (4gb). After doing some research, i found out that flash drives are considered "removable disks" and "removable disks" cannot be partitioned. You must find some way to trick the computer to recognize it as "fixed disk" before partitioning the flash drive. I believe Lexar products have a software to do this, however, SanDisk does not. Unfortunately, the Lexar software to convert flash drives -> fixed disks work for most other brands of Flash Drives, except for San Disk.

    Instead of formatting the hardrive as recommended in the guide, i simply went to My Computer, and right-clicked the USB flashdrive that i would use, then format, selected FAT32, then ok/start/format. After formatting, i used WBFS MAnager software to format the flash drive to WBFS. I then used WBFS MAnager to load a game (Lego Indiana Jones) onto the flash drive, and it worked. I plugged and played it on my Wii and it seems fine.

    Hopefully this helps others who have SanDisk Cruzers.

    Why is it when i use my old CONFIG folder for usbloader gx it runs fine with a FAT32 harddrive but when i add a new CONFIG folder it wont load the harddrive and asks asks if i would like to format it, oh just thought is it like when you first attach an harddrive and you need set it up??

    cause i just copied all my games to another harddrive and hacks a new wii but only works if i have my old (from previous wii) CONFIG folder


    Great thread by the way, i was thinking whats the point at first but it saves wasting space on different partitions and no need for a SD card now, cheers guys
