    Can't install games

    I installed games when I added homebrew and usb loader GX. I just tried to backup a game yesterday. I clicked the + to install a game, the box came up and I clicked install but nothing happened. It took me back to the screen with all of my games that I already have. Please help.

    Try a good loader like Configurable USB Loader or WiiFlow.

    Where do I get those from and will the games I've already loaded still be on there?

    There is a link in my signature for Configurable USB Loader (CFG), but if you insist on keeping USB Loader GX, have a second copy on an SD card using r921. I have seen that revision have more success at ripping onto WBFS partitions.

    Edit: Yes, you will still have all of your other games. You will not need to change your partition format unless you want to. I prefer fat32 (link in sig) but if you are already on WBFS, stick with it for now. But I really do recommend CFG over GX.

    I'm really new to this, so if this souds like a dumb question, it may be. I jus down load this loader to an SD card, put the SD card in the wii and then open it using homebrew? Is that correct?

    In a nutshell, yes. What you will do is place the loader in SD:/apps/usbloader/boot.dol
    In this format, you will see the app as an option when you are in the Homebrew Channel.

    Thanks. You have been a big help. One last question. How or can I change from WBFS to fat32 without losing the games that I already have?

    First off, you need to have the Hard Drive space on your Home PC free to do so. Download WBFS Manager and mount your external HDD within the program. You can extract the games from your HDD to your PC. Once that is done, follow the instructions in the fat32 guide in my signature and you are good to go. There is a fair amount of leg work involved since you have games on your HDD already, but having the same HDD for games and other uses is very worth it.

    Summersyn is right, but if you don't intend to use the HDD for anything else, you can leave it as WBFS.
