    Just soft-modded wii.. Now what?

    I just softmodded my wii 4.2U LU73 and want to use USBLoaderGX to play games from a USB 8gig Flashdrive (sandisk).

    However, the ISO's that I have wont go onto the flashdrive. It keeps giving me an error that says "the drive is full" , or when I try and extract it it says "no archives found". The drive is NOT full. It has 7.8 gigs free of space.

    Is this just a case of a bad ISO? Or do I need to partition the drive? (its currently in FAT32)

    Im a little confused on how to format the FlashDrive to wbfs from my Wii...


    Do I just stick it into any USB slot on the Wii? Or do I need to download something seperate to do this?

    Ok so after reading the USB hdd guide it says if Im using a USB Stick that I need to run something called BootIt.

    However, when I stick my USB drive into the PC it shows as a G:/ drive, so do I still need to do this?



    Also, im installing WBFS manager, is this what I need to turn my USB drive into WBFS format?

    'Wii Game Manager' is alot better than WBFS Manager and doesn't require installing

    After doing a couple hours of research, it sounds like I must partition the USB Flash Drive before I can format it into WBFS format.


    How do I parition it? I keep getting an error with BootIt saying it couldnt load /gchoice.com. Is this because my USB Flash Drive isnt partitioned yet?

    I don't use WBFS format anymore as i consider it to be outdated, FAT32 format is far more user friendly.
    All you do is convert the .iso to .wbfs and play it off a FAT32 Drive, there are a few pre requirements but once there met, it's a doddle.

    ;P

    There a few options to playing your backups on an external HDD, OP. I personally have my backups on a WBFS parition on my HDD. WBFS Manager 3.0 is extremely easy to use and I've never had any issues whatsoever.

    -Wii Menu 4.2U / DARKCORP v1.1 / BootMii as boot2 / Preloader v0.30-
    -USB HDD / Wiiflow 2.0 / Triiforce / VC Image-Pack / cIOS Wads-
    Support WiiHacks

    Guys I am still terribly confused.


    Is this what I need to do in order to get ISO's onto my FlashDrive?:

    1. Create a partition on the flashdrive

    2. Run BootIt and Flip it to read as a bootable disk drive

    3. Format it into WBFS format using WBFS manager

    4. Load ISO's onto FlashDrive using WBFS Manager


    ^ Is that what I need to do? I am really having trouble if so.

    I dont understand how to create a partition on my USB Flashdrive.. And when I try and change it to WFBS format in the WBFS manager, it says "An error occured while attempting to format your drive".


    Is there a way to just put my USB flashdrive into my PC, then format it to WBFS without having to use BootIt or create a partition? I am seriously desperate for some help here.
