    USB Loader GX and Downloading Art

    So I try and download the disc art for some of my games, but can't find any files on wiitdb.com

    I noticed the art images are stored on the SD card.

    Can I download art from other sites? If so, how do I then says DiscImageA goes with GameA?

    ok highlight the game then on the side there should be a no image box on the left,click on that then it will ask you which cover you want to choose from,ie 3d/original etc.
    on usb loader there is a setting for the images ,press the side arrow to select i think its original/custom or something like that,make sure your internet is on the wii.

    No, I know how to download the art but some of the files are missing, meaning not on the wiitdb.com site.

    There is a site called Cdcovers.cc / World's Largest CD Covers and DVD Covers Album Art Archive that you can download covers and disc art as well.

    If I download a disc art from that site, how do I match it with the game that has the missing art files?

    Each game has a 6-digit id and each picture must match this code. By default, the usb loader gx disc image folder is sd:/images/disc. You can take the image from anywhere and the size preferred by the loader is 160x160.

    i had alot of missing files,so go to the usb loade you will see the settings icon on that page.

    go to the GUI SETTINGS and see where it says discimages download use the wiimote press A to change it to original/customs.

    it will search for the missing files,now all my cover/disc images are 100% with this setting,so no need to look else where.

    it auto searches the cover to the game,now all my cover/disc images are 100% with this setting,so no need to look else where.
    I'll give this a try as well. Really didn't want custom images though but I'll see what I get.
