Great Guide! Now I'm able to hook up my ext HDD to Wii and load the games via CFG loader.
No more messing around with DVD discs.

I was looking at the compatibility list and I saw the 8GB Sandisk Cruzer Flash drive and got excited but to no avail I couldn't get it to work.
My problem is I can't get windows to see it as a fixed drive to do the proper formatting and such. I've tried a couple different bit lockers but also to no avail.

Use easeus, it's listed in the formatting on the first page.

I never had great luck with NTFS on a thumb drive, sometimes it would work, other time not. FAT and WBFS work great

Thank you very much. Sometimes I just simply overlook things. Thank you for not being cruel lol.
If NTFS doesn't work I'm going to try for the WBFS I think

What is recognized, and what isn't? What do you mean by "recognized"? What error are you receiving? What are you using to rip the original discs? Are your discs clean? Is your drive clean? A lot of different things could be causing this. Give more details.

Any help would be appreciated. I have used both the configurable usb loader as well as GX but my backups do not show up. I softmodded my wii per the latest guide so all of the proper cios should be there. Games are saved to a NTFS drive on the compatible list in iso format. Naming convention used is gameid.iso. Games are saved to a wbfs file at the root of the NTFS drive. NTFS drive is recognized by the loaders and it shows the amount of memory left on the drive and whatnot but says no games found despite the fact that i have about 10 backups on there. I have done my best to follow both this guide as well as the soft modding guide. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
EDIT: For anyone that this may help in the future, I had not followed the proper naming convention. Although I thought that I had renamed the iso files with the game id, I had not hit enter so the file name had reverted back to a non game id name. This is why it was not being recognized by the usb loader.
That may be the case but all of my iso files are being recognized after following the proper naming convention. We will see if that remains the case as I add additional iso files to the NTFS drive.

Now you said in your post that you had used game_id.iso and stored them as such on the hard drive. But your next line in your post stated that they are in wbfs files. Regardless, iso and wbfs files go in the wbfs folder...
