    Hey all! I was wondering if anyone here can help me with a problem I'm facing since... today... uh.
    I have a TDK 64GB USB flash drive since last week and it worked flawlessly all the time until today.
    For some reason, when I start a game on CFG, it freezes at "Loading, please wait..."
    On USB Loader GX, the screen goes black after pressing start.
    I formatted the drive as FAT32 with 32k clusters using GUIFormat.
    The .wbfs game backups are working on a smaller USB drive, also with CFG.
    I was using the d2x-v10-beta53-alt-vWii so I changed the cIOS to d2x-v10beta52-vWii but still the same results...

    Any idea of what's going on?

    Here's my syscheck just in case it's needed:

    Here we go! Mama mia!
    I see you don't have cIOS 57 on slot 250... Some games need it to play fine... And try d2x v8 to see if it will work.

    And for USB stick, some are not working fine. You better use a HD if you want better compatibility.

    I don't think there is a v8 for vWii. If the flash drive was working as expected and doesn't now something may have happened with it. Did you try scanning it with chkdsk?

    d2x v8 does not work on vWii as far I know.
    The games were released before 2010 (example: Mario Party 8) I don't think I need another cIOS on the 250 slot...

    Yes I did. It says there's no errors on it :/

    If you plug the smaller drive in then does it still work? If so then copy all the files from it onto your computer, format the big USB drive and paste the files from the small drive onto it & put the big drive in the same slot the small drive worked in.

    If that doesn't work then there is something wrong with the big drive that means it can't work, it could be a random compatibility issue. Unfortunately when those happen all you can normally do is just get a different drive.

    Yes, it still works. The smaller drive is a 16GB Verbatim Store 'N' Go PinStripe, listed in the USB Devices Compatibility List as "Working".
    The TDK drive is not listed, but a similar one is listed as "Working"...

    Got it to work! I did the following:

    To the drive (remember,it's a TDK TF10 64GB flash drive):
    - I ran chkdsk /r
    - On Wii Backup Manager, I updated the storage convention
    To the Wii U:
    - I just cleaned it... it had dust on the heat sink (it didn't affect anything Wii U-related but it seemed to affect the flash drive...)

    Now, the drive works flawlessly!

    Thanks for the help! Let's keep the thread for future reference so it can help someone (oh well... that's obvious anyway)

    If CHKDSK found any errors (there will be a hidden FOUND.000 directory) you might want to scan your games and make sure none got corrupted.

    The easiest way is to use Wiimm's ISO Tools. Just stick the flash drive in your PC and type "wit verify -r <wbfs path>". It will probably take a while, though.
