    Adding artwork to games in HDD can brick wii?

    Recently I softmodded my wii, I had 2 games and they worked great without and problems. Then I found out you can add artwork to the games so usb loader will show it. I downloaded a few more games, put those on the hard drive, then put the artwork on them. (I don't have wifi, so I did it with wii backup manager 2.4.0 Everything went great, then when I went to plug it into the wii and play, it first didn't see the games, I turned off the wii, unplugged and plugged back in the hard drive, then powered it back up. Somehow doing this broke my wii temporarily, I couldn't get past the health and safety screen half the time, and when I could, The wii would just freeze up after about 30 seconds, I formatted it, and it started working again. I just re soft modded it (4.3u) and have had no trouble playing games without the artwork.

    Now my question is, If i put artwork on the hard drive, will this happen all over again?

    Corrupt cover art would not cause the problem you describe. It had to be some other issue.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Hmm okay, Do you have any idea what it could be? If one of the games on the hard drive were corrupt would that cause it?

    I would have thought that if one of the games were corrupt you wouldnt have been able to transfer it to HDD and also wouldnt be able to play it.I had an issue a little while back where a half downloaded game cover made usb loader gx have a wobbler,i couldnt even open it let alone play a game from HDD.At the moment i am manually transferring cover art to the images folder on my sd card which works for me no problem.You could try it that way it may help you in your process of elimination.
