    Question Cannot load .iso from SD/SDHC using NeoGamma - newbie

    Hi everyone,

    I have recently hacked my Wii with the "letterbomb" hack and installed the Homebrew channel.
    My Wii is fairly new with a 4.3E firmware.
    I have also installed the latest version of NeoGamma Backup loader (R9 beta56 IOS249).
    With all this, I made a copy of Mario and Sonic olimpic games on a DVD-R media and tried to play it.
    When trying to load it (via NeoGamma) I get an error message: something like "Your drive is too new for DVD-R".
    I supppose that the latest Wii have DVD drives locked not to allow using DVD-R ...
    So I made an ISO of the DVD.
    I have copied that ISO on the root of my SD card. This is an 8GB SD card where I also have the NeoGamma app. This SDHC is formatted FAT32.
    Then I went back to NeoGamma, selected "Load games from: <SD / SDHC>". It appeared "Press A to mount WBFS".
    I cannot change WBFS to FAT32.
    When I press "A" I get an error: "storage read1 fail".

    I am quite sure that the .iso was grabbed correctly (I mounted it on a virtual DVD drive and I could see all files that I expected) so, I suppose, I'm not using NeoGamma properly, or I have not placed the .iso in the right place of the SD card.
    Any thought on what is the issue?

    Also, using NeoGamma I see the possibility to "load game from USB": I suppose that's something different than the SD/SDHC but ... where the heck is the USB connector in the Wii?

    Thanks in advance for the help ...

    White wii's only work with burned games as in a dvd-r unless you have an older disk drive installed on your wii. How old is your wii? if its one of the new ones it doesn't support burned games. (Answer to burned game question)
    Hope this helps. \m/

    My Wii is fairly new: Dec 2011 and it is black (in case that makes a difference).
    My kids already destroyed one DVD so it is imperative for me to find a reasonable way to use backup data.
    I am OK (infact, I prefer) ripping the .iso and saving them in a SD card, rather tan making a DVD copy.

    Hi there! You can do what I did:
    1) Get USB Loader GX. link: USB Loader GX
    2) Now, get a hard drive (external). Pen drives work, but then not much space there
    3) Google Wii Game Manager and download it.
    4) Open Wii Game Manager, and choose File>Open .iso file
    5) Navigate to your ISO's folder. If you did it right, you'll see your game's name (in your case Mario and Sonic at Olympic Games) in the list.
    6) Right-click the ISO, and choose "Create WBFS file" or something like that. Choose 4GB split if your hard drive is FAT32, or no split if it's NTFS. Save the file anywhere
    7) Create a folder called "WBFS" on your HDD, and copy your newly made .wbfs (and .wbf1, 2 etc) to your WBFS folder.
    8) Start USB Loader GX using HBC or channel, and put your HDD in port0 of your Wii. (The one at the bottom, when the Wii is placed horizontally)
    9)OPTIONAL Press 1 to download covers (If your Wii is internet-connected)
    10) Click on your disc's cover, and you'll hear the disc's sound (the one at the disc channel). When the sound comes, click the disc.
    Voila! It works!

    Hi,

    I posted 2 messages yesterday but I did not see them here, probably because I had a link to an external website.
    Nevermind that: I have followed the instructions of NSDCars5 (thanks!) but I am still unable to load a game from USB.
    I have followed the whole process: now I have the .wbfs of Mario and Sonic on a USB key, formatted FAT32.
    I have followed various tutorial on this website without any issue, starting from the "The Softmod Any Wii Guide by Mauifrog" and the Fat32 Guide (http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...ide-fat32.html).

    I plugged in the USB key in the proper slot and started USB Loader GX, but while the USB seems to be properly recognized, it says 0 games found.
    The .wbfs is into a WBFS folder on the root of the USB key. I created it with the Wii Game Manager referenced above.

    I am not sure what am I doing wrong: I have followed all the instructions to the letter and the results I have got match what was indicated in all the various tutorials (by the way, great job).

    If anyone has a clue ...

    Hi, I have been trying to post but my comments are sent for review by moderators and they never make it to the forum: not sure why.
    Anyway, after another week trying I managed to get it to work.
    The issue, apparently, was that I ble HD was using a USB key rather than a portable HD.
    It appears that it is infact possible to do that, but there is some extra work to be done (bitsetting?). By the time I figured that out, the portable HD had arrived. Gave it a try and worked like a charm.
    Thanks everyone for the help.
    The HD is the new WD My passport Essential USB 3.0 500GB.

    As far as I can read, you mean that you have the game like this:
    (HDD letter)X:\WBFS\Name.wbfs
    Dunno why USB Loader GX doesn't work. Try Wiiflow, it also comes with Mauifrog's guide. Or you can try renaming the file to the Title ID. For your game, it should be RWSE8P

    There's something really odd going on here.
    I posted the messages above almost one week ago. They have been up for moderator's review for quite a few days.
    Yesterday I posted again that everything was fixed. That new post showed up right away (no moderators' review).
    Doesn't matter.

    The problem is fixed. The issue -I think- was that rather than using a portable HD, I was using a USB key. I found out yesterday that when doing so it might be necessary to set one special bit to make the USB key look like a HD instead. Not 100% sure, because in the meantime my portable HD arrived, I did exactly the same I had done with teh USB key and everything worked perfectly.

    So the guides were just perfect, this site rocks and I owe a big "thank you" to NSDCars5 for keeping me on the right track.

    Thanks everyone.
