    Minor Edit.

    I honestly don't know what my drive is... Its a small silver USB drive but it plays games perfectly. I could get a digital copy I was thinking that because I read it isn't against the law if you DO OWN IT. Not supporting piracy, but if you own the copy of what you are getting already, it isn't against the law.

    But, I have games on my flash drive and they run perfectly, I have around... 4-5 working now but I cant get the larger games for some reason... I'll make sure it is set to primary and such but I believe it is. Its a flash drive not a Hard Drive so I don't think it's falling asleep but maybe.. <.< don't think they fall asleep xD



    Addition: I checked, it is set to primary and also set for active. It is FAT32... On the small drive it shows PNY 32 gig, so w/e that is.. >.< ---- JUST LOOKED at the compatibility list, PNY 62 doesn't allow ripping of games but will play them, I am guessing 32 gig is also like this. Haha... Okay so I cant rip games but I can play them. Guess I have to get digital copies elsewhere >.< dang... but I do have a different smaller Sandisk I could possibly use! Time to try!

    The laws on Piracy a Very Tricky my friend, Be careful.

    Glad you got it working and now you know why it wasn't ripping properly.

    I understand the laws of Piracy and I am sure to get around it, the game will have to be the exact same, same region same version like not a Special edition..

    Now, I run into a different problem... My computer reads the drive as FAT32, I deleted the partition, reformated it to FAT32 and set it active and primary.

    Again, COMPUTER reads FAT32, Wii Reads FAT1.... There is NO FAT partition, the whole thing is FAT32 and it still wont rip a game.. :/

    More then likely the 32gb is just like the 64 Gb thumb drive and won't rip them, just like you said.

    As for the fat1 situation, that is normal.

    Okay well I am trying to use my 8 gig Sandisk Cruzer flashdrive to rip from my wii (On compatibility list is says "- Sandisk Cruzer Flash Drive 8GB - Working")

    So you say that it is normal to appear as FAT1 even though it's FAT32? If that is the case why isn't it working >.<.... Lol. It says it is compatible and that should mean I can rip correctly?... I tried to use Wiiflow, freezes at 0 percent. CFG freezes within a few moments, Usb Loader GX Says there is 0.00 space or something and wont rip. So.... I dunno what else to do... I have another usb somewhere but I think all it is.. is a
    Sandisk Cruzer Flash Drive 16GB and I doubt that'd change much


    -----JUST thought of something. Could it be that the file itself is larger then 4 gigs? It is, it says 4.48 or something, does that mean that I cant use a FAT32? Isn't the cap for transfering 4 gigs and if it is larger the game has to be split? Like on Wii Game Manager? Or does that not apply here?



    ---- Tested the theory of it being because it's over 4 gigs, the answer is no. I tried putting a 1.34gb game into the CD rom to rip. It gets to 2.13 percent and freezes. :/ So... much closer to wanting to just get a digital copy but I don't want to >.< I want to use my copies I OWN.


    ---Reformattinng my Hard Drive and going to attempt using that.. REFORMATTED and still reads this as a FAT1 so I guess that's supposed to happen? Its going fast it actually has ripped 20 percent of the game already. So I do hope that it continues going well... Its at 24 now. Cross my fingers D:


    ---The HD Worked! Okay, before I get too happy I'll try a few more..


    I would like to thank everyone who has helped me through this ^^ I am pretty sure that everything is working now! I've copied half my library of games onto the wii! Lol, It feels good when things start working right. I am on 10 percent through THe Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword. My only fear is when I finish all this and put my games from my USB Flash Drive onto my HD it'll mess up. But hopefully that wont happen. Anyways, thank you all this should be my last "HELP ME" thread for a while if things do things right.
