    USB Loader GX recognises my flash drive but doesn't load the list of games from it.

    Wiiflow loaded the list of games but went back to the Wii menu when I tried to play them, though now it's actually not loading Wiiflow at all - it gets stuck on the loading screen.

    Cfg usb loader gets stuck on the loading screen as well, it just says 'cfg'.

    I would be grateful for any help or suggestions.

    Some further info: it's a FAT32 32GB USB flash drive, loaded the games on with Wii Backup Manager into the wbfs folder.

    Yep, that's the guide I followed. I just re-did the cIOS installations to make sure but it's still not working.

    I may try and restore the nand I made last week. How would I go about doing this on a Wii U?

    Works fine now. I think because I put the keys.bin file back on my SD card, I didn't realise it might be important.

    I was wrong, I was able to load up a game earlier and now it's stopped working again =/

    Try reformatting the SD Card and re downloading the app(s)
    Also try reformatting or a different usb drive if possible.

    If the games are playing fine then my bet is the SD card or app is corrupted.

    I personally could never get wiiflow to work properly on the vwii. I switched to usbloader gx 3.0 and never looked back :)

    I would prefer to use usbloader GX. Unfortunately it doesn't load up the list of games, even though it recognises the USB drive and partition. It only shows a blank list of Wii channels.

    Wii games could possibly be unckecked in the view settings (it's a button on the top)

    usb lodergx has the ability of using port 0,1 go on your sd card and delete all configs for usbloader gx usually in "SD:\apps\usbloader_gx\" the configs could have been corrupted has happened to me a couple of times
