    WBFS Manager 3.0 x64 problems

    I find it hard to believe that there isn't a tech support/problems subforum here. So I posted here in the newb section.
    I've got a handfull of games on my usb hard drive that I used WBFS manager to copy them over from the pc to the usb hd. I've collected 19 more games to move over. The problem is WBFS Manger is taking its sweet time loading. When I click the link it just shows the logo on the center of my desktop for MUCH longer then any 3d application takes to load up. Which is sadly rediculous to be able to walk away eat something and come back to still see a damn loading screen.

    Once open I have the window and 3 drive letters in the pull down. All of which are my laptop drives. Non are the usb drive. I refresh and nothing happens. I also can't browse my computer in the right window. I've tried unplugging the usb drive before starting the app after the app. In the app it doesn't matter. This is one buggy junk program.

    Is there some fixes for it or is there something else that can be used? Also isn't it supposed to download the box art or what ever from the internet to avoid hooking up your wii to the net? If not can't you just move jpg images over to the usb drive somehow?


    Kinda lost here, but lost with a non properly functioning app. Thats for sure.

    WBFS Manager is the only app for right now to tranfer files over to the WBFS HDD. Are you sure you installed the x64 version. You can go HERE! if need be. Also why are you keeping your Wii disconnected from the internet. You only need to have WiiConnect24 OFF, the internet can stay on. The box art for the games are typically held on the SD card in folders that the loader uses, you can most definately download the covers yourself, goHERE! for everything in the proper format.

    I don't have it connected to the internet, because there is no need right now. Its hooked up in the bedroom, because its an xmas gift for my kids and they obviously don't know about it. I'm trying to get everything up and running so its ready to go the morning of.
    All the manager shows is my operating system drive (c) my dvd drive (d) and the removable slot (e the card reader) It used to show up as F, but I keep refreshing and it doesn't show the damn drive. Not to mention the load times. I started it up this last time drove to the store about 3 minutes away stood in line for a couple minutes drove back and it still wasn't open yet. There has to be something wrong with the program.

    I'm sure I installed the x64 version because I'm running win 7 ultimate x64 and the x86 version wouldn't install.

    Ok I feel like a complete idiot. I had the wrong usb drive connected. The one that was connected doesn't even have a drive installed in it. LMAO

    That still doesn't explain the rediculous startup times for the manager. I mean come on. I can start and pull up a complete render in 3ds much sooner then this small toy app takes to load. Adobes CS4 software loads faster then this app does.

    Am I the only one with this problem? Anyone else think that the whole app needs to be rewritten or replaced with another much more logical solution?

    I've never had a problem with WBFS Manager in both x64 and x86 systems. But by all means you can try to code one
