    how can I use games covers from HDD instead of SD

    Hello!

    Is it possible to have games covers in USB loader GX or wiiFlow loaded directly from an external hdd (partitioned into WBFS and FAT)? I don't have an SD.
    If so, then how?

    When I try to download covers in USB loader GX it tells me I don't have an SD card. and under "Path settings" I can't change any path.

    On wii flow however it starts to download and then fails.

    What can I do? (beside getting an SD card).


    Thanks in advanced!

    Which version of Wiiflow do you have? I've not tried with USB Loader GX but my Wiiflow install has the WBFS partition for the games and Fat32 for apps and cover images. Wiiflow downloads and installs the cover images to there fine.

    I have a wiiflow folder in the root of the drive and inside there are more folders: Covers and Boxcovers, along with the themes and music etc.
    I did install Wiiflow as a channel though and don't have it as an app on the HDD anymore.

    I just checked my wiiflow.ini file and it has the folders set in there as follows:

    dir_box_covers=usb:/wiiflow/boxcovers
    dir_cache=usb:/wiiflow/cache
    dir_flat_covers=usb:/wiiflow/covers
    dir_music=usb:/wiiflow/music
    dir_themes=usb:/wiiflow/themes

    Thanks for your quick reply, but I resolved the problem.
    Apparently I was stupid enough to think that exFAT was as good as FAT32 for wiiflow...
    Reformatting with FAT32 did the trick!

    Ah, I forgot about exFAT, I had to use a tool from Samsung to format my HDD to FAT32 as Win7 would only do it as exFAT too. Glad you sorted it though
