    Wiiflow will download the covers to your SD card. Have you got one in the SD card slot on the Wii? Windows will not recognise the files because it is WBFS and not a windows file system.

    what's ur games ? not ALL gamecovers/discimages are available for download at the moment.
    run WiiFlow and proceed an online gameCover/Title download (ie. select Missing) is simply the best way for newbies. if download failed, repeat.
    if u're using WiiFlow as a forwarder (Not channel), make sure u've SD card and the right folder in the right path for downloads.
    u have no plans on using an sd card, that means u're going to use WiiFlow as a CHANNEL. pls visit and readme file for proper setup. u need to hv a FAT partition for the COVERs, simply speaking.

    pc doesn't recognize wbfs-formatted hdd. u'll be prompted "format the drive when u connect the wbfs-hdd onto pc, each time. DON'T format, otherwise, u lose all copied ISOs.

    the wii flow folder you are talking about can be put on the root of the sd card or if you have a fat32 partition on you hdd then you can oput it there and direct wii flow to it by changing the settings.

    Also for covers that you cant download you can go here to get them and add them to the folder on the sd or hdd

    Ok know do i have to partition the hdd or can i just simply copy the wiiflow folder on my new hdd? Wen i hook up the hdd and open up wbfs manger do i formate the drive to wbfs and then add the folder? I see the faq but it seems to only mention usb loader gx i dont have that. Is there a faq on just wiflwo hdd setup and steps on how to do it or can somone maybe post something here...
