    What is the best USB loader that can read WBFS files?

    Okay because i got some problems with 2 games (one is freezing when i want to start a file so i could play and another one is freezing when i start the game,so in the game,its loading forever)
    So i blame the USB loader.

    What games are they and what USB loader are you using? I had issues with some but could fix all from a quick google search. Ios change usually was enough to fix, using USBLoader GX.

    Hmm i never tried for Call of Duty but Kirby i don't recall any issue with GX. I suggest you just try with different USB loader and see, they are mall download and quick to install and use. Goood luck. :)

    I use configurable usb loader and both of those games work flawlessly for me. It's probably not the loader but maybe the games themselves

    I haven't had issues with either games on CFB... perhaps you have a bad rip?

    It seems that the files that you're trying to use are corrupt. If not even Wii Game Manager isn't showing them up, then it's probably just a corrupt file. you can try another loader and see if the games work but like i said, i doubt they'll work on another loader.

    You wont mess anything up if you install to slot 250. I'm assuming your current is in 249. Follow modmii if you are worried, it'll give a simple guide

    I don't really keep up to date with the builds. I update things maybe once a year. I was using the real official wiiflow 1.1 by hibernatus for about 2 years before I switch to the version by the next group of people. My first time using the version by miigotu it had crashed a lot and there were features removed and so I went back to the last version. Now I've at least switched to the version that is headed by FIX94 and I am very happy with it, but even that version is about 4 months old and I don't plan on updating for a little bit of time.

    That's a problem with the games, not the USB loaders. Blaming something randomly without understanding the problem is very wrong thing to do.
    Here are the problems:
    * Kirby : Has an Anti-Piracy protection. You need to launch the game with no patches (not forcing any video mode, not using Ocarina, not using Language patch, not using a NTSC version on PAL wii, etc.)
    * Call of Duty : like you were told previously, you need the correct cIOS (base57 in slot250).


    For Call of Duty:
    If you already followed a tutorial to softmod your wii, there's a big chance that you already have everything you need.
    So, either try Wiiflow-mod (which loads the correct cIOS automatically), or use another USB Loader (cfg or GX) and go to the game settings to tell the game to use IOS slot 250.



    To know what cIOS you already have, follow this tutorial and post the result here.
