    Hello,
    I am currently having some problems trying to install some games using USB Loader GX. It works perfectly fine when install retail versions of the game, but when I try to install my backup copies it just shows a blank white screen with no buttons after I hit install game. I have searched around where people recommending downgrading to rev921 etc. but it did not work for me. Its not just one particular backup game I'm trying to install either, I tried various different backup games that I backuped myself and others borrowed from friends. It just seems that it just won't install back ups only. Any information and/or fix in regards to this issue would be much appreciated. Thank you

    since they are already backup discs, u can transfer them to your hard drive using WiiBackupManager for Windows

    Yeah I actually tried that for one game to see if it works and it does, but I'm just trying to see if its possible to just install it like a normal retail game? and what the issue might be

    i've done it before, try using configurable usb loader instead

    usbloader gx has sooooo many revisions, and I think the most recent version isn't the best/most stable

    is your hard drive formatted as NTFS?

    I partitioned the drive into 2, one is WBFS format which I am using for my Wii and other half is NTFS

    it sounds like u might be trying to install the games to your ntfs partition

    in configurable usb loader

    hit 1, then 1 again to get to global options

    from there, make sure your partition selected is WBFS, not NTFS, then try again

    Nope, still not working. I made sure it was selected to the WBFS partition as well. Very odd issue...

    i dunno, it wasn't designed to copy backup disks anyways...


    hmmm, i'm assuming this SPECIFIC wii is capable of playing these discs correct? Because if u can't play/read them, ur wii wont be able to copy them

    maybe it is having issues because copies can only run @ 3x speeds (as opposed to originals which run @ 6x speeds)

    Just use wiibackupmanager for copies, and your usb-loader for originals... sorry I couldn't offer more help
