    can any 1 please confirm or clarify,i have got a 8gb usb flash drive which works 100%,i can put any wii game on it and it loads and plays,how ever i have tried a 16 gb usb and recently a 64 gb kingston data traveler 150.i format both sticks to fat 32,used same back up manager,the same game is added to stick,when i open usb(cfg v 70) the game is there but when i click start i get black screen.i believe both sticks have been fake,my 8 gb stick works but not my other bigger sticks.is there a different set up for usb sticks bigger than 8 gb or am i unlucky to have got 2 fake sticks.what makes me think sticks are faulty is that i format sticks to fat 32,copied a wii game which was 4.32 gb un extracted,my stick reports game 4.32gb,when i put stick in another pc and try to extract game it fails at first rar file as no files,but i can do this process using 8 gb stick and works 100%.am i doing any thing wrong or just got fake sticks,sorry but just need to clarify that what i am doin is correct and fake sticks or i am a total prick and doin it wrong

    My 16gig works, try unplugging it and plugging it back in when the 90 second countdown timer is on there. Also check to see if the HBC is picking it up by putting an app on it. I sometimes have problems with loaders not picking up the flash drives.

    could be that they are fake could be that its something in cios could be that you are doing something wrong

    what you need to do is eliminate this possibility one at a time

    fake is easiest
    a) there are tools to test this
    b) alternatively find a video file you can play, copy many copies of it to the stick till it is full, try to play the first and last one, on a good drive it will work on a fake MOST LIKELY not

    If it's a kingston, just post a picture/describe the colour. The fakes are almost always the wrong colour because they're smaller drives that have been hacked.
