    I think my Google search turned up at least 3 threads from here where people experience freezing but not under the same conditions. The game works fine from disc, but when I put it on my drive it works fine but then freezes after (I guess) 15-20 minutes of playing for no apparent reason? I've also tried 2 ISOs from 2 different places and the same thing happens.

    I'm using cISO 249 rev21 and CFG USBloader, the wiki says the game works fine http://wiki.gbatemp.net/w/index.php?title=USB_Game_Compatibility_Table so I am at a loss.

    Could be a sleep mode issue with your HDD. There are usually tools to disable sleep mode on the manufacturer's website.

    None of my other games have this issue though.

    Found a Youtuber with the same problem, minus the vibrating controller:

    That doesn't mean anything. What Harddrive do you use?

    You mean in the Wii? Whatever one it comes with I guess. Mine is from 2010.

    No, the kind of USB device you are using. Probably a USB related issue

    It's a western digital model, I have no idea how to check its hard drive, is it the same way you'd check a desktop's specs?

    Yeah, is that a bad thing? I salvaged it from my aunt's ghastly clutter of electronics in her pantry a couple years ago and it works for the most part.

    What would work better for backing up games? I could always wait on an Amazon sale and grab a flash drive with lots of storage.

    Disable's some dumb thing involving spindown. And drive idling.

    Says the drive update isn't applicable.

    I dunno, perhaps try installing the d2x cIOS files then.
