    Hi guys I hope some of you genius' can help me out with a small problem I have. Ive had my Wii since around 2008 and not really touched it for about a year. I had the USB Config installed but obvisouly is now out of date. I recently got a batch of new games from a mate and managed to backup some recent games such DKC returns and Black Ops. Following various guides I managed to get then working by updating IOS' etc, whilst still leaving my system on 3.2E. I'm not really keen on updating to 4.2 using Modmii 'cause I believe in if it ain't broke don't fix. Plus there's no features that I really want in the newer firmwares.

    Anyway onto my problem. I have just bought Metroid Prime Trilogy and for some reason it will not install through the USB Conf. I always seem to get the (ret = -2) error. I've been trying to find a solution all day and can only seem to find issues with the Alt.Dol. I have updated the USB conf loader to the latest version, running a WD USB drive with NTFS filesystem.

    The main reason this has me stumped is because the disc will run from the disc channel. Apart from the noise coming from the disc spinning, the game runs fine but for some reason in USB Conf Loader it won't load. I gather from what I've read I think this is an issue with IOS'. I have run syscheck but I'm unsure of what it's telling me exactly. Hopefully this is just a case of installing a missing Wad.

    Do you have no error message? You could install IOS58 using the IOS58 Installer and use CleanRip to install the game. With cleanrip you can copy the game from your wii directly to the USB HDD. Configurable USB Loader will detect the file and play the game.

    Wow I'm surprised your having a problem. I actually use the much insulted USB Loader GX but it does not compare to CFG for installing games. Maybe worth trying another loader just for the install!

    Also man those Trucha Bug IOS you got may be the problem. Maybe you can update them without updating your System Menu. I'm still at 4.2!

    Look at the disc real good. I got a second-hand copy of Pokemon Battle Revolution from Gamestop.
    Looked flawless at first. When I got it home and took it out, there was hardly a smooth spot on it.
    Tried ripping, but both CFG Loader and CleanRip gave errors.

    In order of what I think will solve the problem:

    1) Make sure your drive has enough free space.
    2) Install IOS58 and use CleanRip.
    3) Get another disc.
    4) Update to 4.3.1.
    5) Restore your IOS files to unpatched states (except for your cIOS files, of course.)
    6) Use IOS222.

    That's all I've got.

    Hi guys, thanks for your replies. I think I have a bit of progress. I've managed to install IOS58 and updated the HBC to use IOS58. Tried Cleanrip and it froze three out of three times. Tried it in the disc channel and the game has now stopped loading, showing there is a disc error etc. It seems to be an intermitant fault as I tried about ten times and it would work on and off. I think my dvd drive is on the way out. Due to the age of the console I think it may have the issue with older machines running dual-layer discs.

    Anyway at the minute (after trying clean rip over and over) it has now started to rip the full disc instead of freezing.

    Thanks for all you help, at least it's saved me downloading a backup.
