    I use the Program WBFS Manager 3.0 to manage all of the Wii games on my USB drive in Vista, and that seems to automatically download the artwork for any game.

    however, im not sure why but the artwork dosent seem to show up in USB loader. But if its just the artwork your looking for, it saves them in => User/Documents/WBFS Manager Covers

    Some of the covers are fairly low resolution though and would probably not be suitable for printing off.

    EDIT: not sure why i just expected WBFS manager to load artwork onto my harddrive, but obviously thats not how it works, for ayone else that was wondering, you have to create a folder on the root of your SD card called "usb-loader" and a folder within that called "covers" put all of your covers into that folder, and away you go

    I copied the png files from User/Documents/WBFS Manager Covers to SD/usb-loader/covers and it still does not show the artwork box?

    I'm using usb loader 1.5 and WBFS Manager 3.0.1 and CIOS rev9. Do I need to upgrade to REV10 to make it work?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Are the cover in .png format? Also, the filename must be the same as the game ID.

    [ NOTES ]:

    - Replace background image (PNG format only):

    To replace the background image, copy the image file with the name
    "background.png" inside "usb-loader" folder in the root of the SD card.


    - Add game cover (PNG format only):

    To add a game cover, copy the cover image inside "usb-loader/covers" folder
    in the root of the SD card. The filename must be the same as the game ID
    (with .png extension).
    from readme file

    Game ID's

    So, I am having trouble getting the .PNG's from The Other Zone to show up on USB Loader.

    Does anyone know where I can find a list of Game ID's so I can check and make sure that they are named right?? Some show up and some don't.

    I found that it's simpler by just loading the usb loader, go in the drive and click on the blank cover. Once you click on the blank cover, it will automatically ask if you want to download it. BTW, just make sure the loader app is unlock.

    what USB Loader are you using dtube? I am using USB Loader 1.5 and it does not have an option as far as I can tell to download the cover.

    And yes nodiaque I have been using WBFS manager to transfer my .iso's over to my HDD. But I don't see an option in there to transfer covers as well? I was under the impression that the covers have to be on your SD card that the app is installed on.

    I'm thinking that the titles don't match the game ID's or something because some will show up and some don't. I got them all from the same place and I checked their formats and they are the correct size and everything.

    I didn't even know it existed, thanks! I'm looking into it right now... Is this one where I can download the covers from my Wii or will I still need to add them manually to my SD card?

    EDIT: Read the info about Ultimate USB Loader v7.2 - Looks awesome to me so I'm going to try that out. It looks like it WILL download the cover art for me.

    Thanks jonathanb9595!!!
