    Lol, i see a bit of confusion here: Lol, try formatting your HDD to NTFS, default cluster size, put your .wbfs files into wbfs, try loading Loader GX, or wiiflow, either of those will pick up NTFS formatting with WBFS files. My hdd is parted to 300GB-FAT32/700GB-NTFS GC on the left, Wii games on the right. NEVER had a problem after I updated my wii with the softmod guide.

    Skeptical?

    I'm newbie but i read carefully the entire tutorial. I already done that.

    There are two scenarios:
    1. Formating HDD in WBFS format, copying iso through Manager ---> USB Loader GX sees the games
    2. Converting iso to wbfs with Manager, formating USB flash (16 GB) in NTFS, copying wbfs file with proper naming convention into the wbfs folder ---> USB Loader GX doesn't see the games
    Simple as that. Sorry, maybe I made some confusion in my posts.

    Ok so setting the manager to directly send the wbfs to the assigned drive works? But cutting/copying-pasting to urge wbfs folder DOESN'T work?

    Sent from my Motorola Triumph using WiiHacks

    Skeptical?

    1. Copying with Total Commander - doesn't work
    2. Copying with Manager - doesn't work
    3. Converting wbfs to iso and putting iso on the WBFS formatted HDD - doesn't work (before conversion to wbfs was ok)

    That's quick summary.

    If you install from GX, and the game runs, then you may have other files you're missing after the conversion [if still using ntfs formatting]. What version are you running? When you load up from the homebrew channel, the version should pop up above the title.

    Skeptical?

    Sorry, I may be ignorant but I don't understand the term "install from GX".
    I only run games from GX interface. Is this installing of a game? Is this done automatically?

    GX version is 3.0 r1180.

    Lol, no no no, "Installing a game" is using the app's/dol's/program's "rip" feature so to speak. Each installer, I think minus a couple. USB Loader's "Install A Game" rip's the game's entire file setup to a/an .iso file; same for WiiFlow. Try "Installing a Game" to your harddrive, and see if it'll play, since you're file formatting is in WBFS. ELSE if as you say converting back to NTFS worked, these files will need to be converted BACK to wbfs file format.

    Couple questions...
    Are you using the latest version of Wii Backup Manager?
    And what does the folder structure look like on the HDD?

    For example:
    D:\wbfs\Title [GAMEID].wbfs

    where "gameid" would be a small series of numbers and or letters

    Along with 11LOBO11, I'm curious as well:

    1) Download this program I created: LINK!
    2) Follow it's instructions (It has a visual tutorial/walkthrough)
    3) Return information back here.

    Skeptical?

    Thanks guys, I'll post the informations ASAP. Right now I'm not able to do that.
    Just a little update.
    It seems that USB Loader GX sees new games (games which isn't runned in it) on the USB flash. After that initial running, second time GX isn't able to see those games. Configurable USB Loader doesn't have this problem at all.
    The games just vanish from the USB Loader. USB Loader detects USB flash capacity and used space but not number of games.
