    I have 4.3U and Homebrew. I have read and read but I cannot find the answers to a few issues I'm having. Any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated.

    I can have an external 500 gb drive and it is partitioned to 100gb FAT32, and 400gb WBFS. When I copy WBFS game files to the FAT32, I can play them without issue through USB Loader GX. I have the USB configurable set up to play ISO's on the 400gb partition. I use WBFS Manager to put the ISO's on that partition. I can play 3 games successfully from ISO on that partition. ANY other ISO's that I add to that partition freeze at the loading screen of Configurable USB Loader. For the life of me I cannot understand why. I have tried about 8 other games and they all freeze when at the load screen. Still the 3 original that I put on there work perfectly. I would love to add more games but I cannot figure out how to do that and have them work.

    Another issue that I have is that I cannot get a single burned DVD to play. The only thing that I can figure is that I'm using DVD+R discs. Should that work, or do I really need DVD-R?

    DVD+R's never work for me. Neogamma always gives errors. DVD-R Verbatim is best.

    Thanks Riley. I'll get some DVR's. Any thoughts on the ISO issue?

    Same here, DVD-R burned at 3x works for me. DVD+r is reported to have problems.

    Oh, make sure you use some good DVD burner like LG, and get IMGBURN.

    Thanks Coto. I will certainly try DVD-R's, and IMGBURN.

    Do you have any idea why I cannot run ISO's from my hard drive, beyond the 3 that I had on there originally? I am putting them on the drive the same way I did the original 3.

    Actually.... I believe you have too much partitions and detecting those, make USB loaders to freeze.

    You should keep a single 500GB FAT32 Cluster size 32/64KB Partition, with all the stuff you already have, incluiding Game ISOS. You can do this easily with any FAT32 formatter (comex has one?) then download and use the latest Wii Back Up Manager PC app to convert/import all your ISOS back onto your current HD.

    Of course, if you have larger files than 4GB will be an issue, and if that´s your case, you should keep 2 partitions, NTFS and FAT32. NTFS for larger files and FAT32 for ISO games.

    Wii Backup Manager will let you do this with ease, so be sure you have plenty of space to store your current ISOS in order to do this transfer.

    And, I recommend to have at least installed Framework 2.0 in your current Windows machine to prevent problems.
