    I did a lot of testing with the Wii and Wii MC, and was able to only get one usb device recognized at any given time. From what I understood it is a limitation of the coding. So if the vWii is anything like the Wii then you will only get one usb device recognized at a time. Apps that use a cIOS may be able to recognize two usb devices at the same time but don't quote me on that because I haven't tried that yet.

    If the system detects two volumes then there must be two volumes on the drive. One of them might be a hidden "recovery" volume but if it's detected, it's definitely there. Connect the drive to a PC, start up the Drive Manager and check how many volumes there are on the drive.

    i am talking about when i load pimpmywii or other wad managers they show "usb mass storage device" which is either encrypted or bugged and then i go to "usb 2.0 mass storage device" and i get either error -2 or error -1.
    i am thinking that my wiiU hard drive is being detected and is glitching out all my usb loaders
    i will try hooking it up to my pc to see if it has multiple volumes. but if it does how do i fix that?
    and another thing... my wii u vwii is not loading any channels or homebrew even those bought from wii shop channel the only thing that doesn't give me a black screen is " WiiU mode" is this a brick? if so how do i fix it? this happened after i installed ios 58.wad from the official modmii application for pc. is there anything i can do top fix this thanks in advance - nick cullihall

    I've had that happen on my regular Wii. Only way around it I could find was to use an SD card instead.
