    playing from sd

    hi, hope you are well and thanx for reading
    i have softmodded my wii using maui's guide and a 16gb sd card from where i want to load games, now i have put a folder on the root of sd called wbfs but.......
    1) neogamma says no wbfs partition, does it need an actual wbfs partition and if so how would i go about doing that
    2) cfg usb loader doesnt see a haerd drive (as there is none) so wont start the app it just keeps trying to mount the non existant drive
    3) while i was trialing if it would work i originally put 1 game in the wbfs folder and wiiflow saw it and played it so i removed sd put in pc and used wii back up manager to transfer some more of my back ups (legit ones) to sd, however when i go back to wiiflow it only sees the first game i put there and none of the new ones?
    so i loaded the sd into wii back up manager and selected remove invalid items but it says there are none so i wonder why it may be that im having difficulty?
    does any one have any ideas to share with me on where i may be going wrong?
    id appreciate it no end,
    many thanx
    popeye

    Neogamma is probably looking for a hard drive, too. And thus, not finding one.

    CFG, when you are trying to find the partition with the game data on it, you should be able to change it to SD to look, then the games will be found. Unles you do so, it will be looking for USB by default.

    It definately is easier to USB load than to try to use SD card. the apps are exepcting it, and the read times will be much faster.

    1. NeoGamma ONLY supports WBFS (USB HD) - not FAT32, nor NTFS.
    2. Depends on what, exactly you formatted as and with.
    3. We do have GUIDES for both NTFS and FAT32 ya know (WBFS I think is now in the Archives).

    You need to be reading more, lol

    Check out CFG. It should load games from SD card as FAT32.
