    Weird: Re-named my game wbfs and 0 games show now in all USB loaders?

    Since i am learning i took 2 of my purchased games and used gx usb to install them to the drive.
    the two games i have purchased is mario world and mario kart (dont know if breaking rules by giving titles sorry if i have)

    as you know they have special title i'ds i played both games in all usb loaders to test them out (tinkering round)
    they both worked in the 3 loaders i tried, Gx, configurble and wiiflow.

    took the hdd back to pc since it's fat32 partition so windows can see it, renamed them kart.wbfs and mario.wbfs
    plugged the drive back in, and now can't see any games at all, on any launcher.

    guessing these launchers only see the title name given to the wbfs file when it's being installed from the disk?

    anyone else with a lot more experience tell me what i'm doing wrong? and how to rename these games if possible

    ooh.. btw i thought these usb launchers installed games onto the usb hard-drive as .iso these are actually wbfs well gx loader is.
    is all the loaders the same when it comes to installing from disc? or do some actually create .iso?

    will look forward to a reply

    1) Windows cant see Fat32 partition???
    2) U cannot rename the >wbfs file as the title id is what the loaders recognise
    3) .wbfs is normal

    no sorry you miss understood i formated the drive to fat32 so i could see the drive in windows i.e. not a wbfs partition.
    so how can you rename the wbfs files to something else is there a special tool or do you have to keep it as like SNP10 etc?

    yes they have to stay like that, u can use a program like wii game manager to put the in sub directories with the title and the title id in or u can just open the list with the program to see the real names of the games

    couldn't figure out the names of what they was so just re-installed them from my purchased discs lol just to get the actual name again.
    saved the name this time, renamed it to something stupid .wbfs same thing, re-named them back to the original they work now.

    thanks again for the help

    I can confirm that wii game manager has an option to change custom titles. But why would you want to. They display in pictures, Cover art. Get to know wii game manager, you will see what I mean.You can use this program to manage what games are on what Hard drive. You can save and move them to and from PC.
