    WiiFlow cannot find any games...what partition to select?

    Due to data lost on a wbfs hard drive, I'm changing to FAT32.

    I'm using my old forwarder channel and took all wiiflow folders off my SD card. I have the apps, wiiflow, and WBFS folders all in one FAT32 hard drive.

    The forwarder works and takes me to wiiflow, but it cannot see games and asks me to select a partition. No matter what partition I select, it still asks me to install games. What am I doing wrong?

    I apologize if this has been answered somewhere but I read tons and tons of info on this site and in the guides and FAQ and couldn't find the answer.

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Cile - Thanks for the quick reply! Right now I'm just testing it with a 2GB flash drive and one game which I transferred via Wii Backup Manager as a WBFS file, so it's in a folder and inside is the typical txt file and wbfs folder. Is it necessary to set a flash drive as primary and active?

    I don't know and I'm not quite sure what that means. But I did install the newest version of wiiflow from the quide listed in Cile's sig. Wouldn't that cover it or is there something in my forwarder channel that needs to be changed?

    no i used the same guide a few days ago and it works for me, try loading it through hbc and not the forwarder or try cfg loader, if it works with cfg loader you know its a problem with wiiflow
    and try not to make double posts it just gets confusing for the people tring to help

    Not that I have noticed
    Have you tried using wiiflow222.dol?

    I have the same problem. HHD is FAT32
    Wiiflow does not see my games and asks for WBFS partition.
    However, USB Loader GX works perfectly fine....
    this sucks because I really like wiiflow over GX...

    why is the wiiflow asking / failing to see wbfs games?

    you are having the same issue as I am. WiiFlow works fine with my WBFS drive. I have been reading for 2 days now and I think I've narrowed it down to needing a cIOS249 rev 19 or higher (at least for me). Could that be your issue also?
