    Alright, so:

    I have a 30GB 5th Generation iPod, which is marked as working in the Compatibility List.
    It's formatted as FAT32.
    When I try to use it with USB Loader GX it doesn't even load it and just shows a black screen and my Wi freezes.
    If I plug it in after I've loaded USB Loader GX, it doesn't recognize anything and then freezes at 1 second left on the countdown

    With Configurable USB Loader, it just shows a grey screen with "Configurable USB Loader" with a freeze.

    It seems to me that either smeone marked it working when it doesn't, or 'm doing something wrong.

    Yes it is in Disk Mode.

    Please help?!

    Possibly silly question, but it would explain things... have you installed IOS249 and IOS222?

    first off and this will make it sound stupid but
    why the heck are u planning to use your ipod as wbfs drive to tune your wii games in?

    2.nd Ipod is an apple made MP3 player not a free for use mobile hard drive
    ( yes you can use it for mobile hard drive purposes but u cannot reformat them to your liking)

    wich make 3rd rather obvious

    your wii doesnt support fat32 or ntfs drives
    it must be installed as wbfs drive to be recognized in the first place


    go read the softmod bible on the backuploader page for all the details on how to use a hard drive as wbfs backup loader

    @dr.clipper
    ios 222 or 249 have not much to do with putting a fat32 drive on your wii
    but yes i agree u need them to use gx loader

    wii does support ntfs and fat32 drives with the latest cIOS222

    I'm using a ntfs drive and it's working perfect

    Did you put your .wbfs files in root:\wbfs\ directory?

    Try updating cIOS222

    confidence ? no i dont use c222(correct me iam probably wrong here for not using it)
    not found a reason to update cIOS222 yet

    i softmodded 249 and 251 to get it to work on 4.2
    and why would i want to use ntfs and fat32 when i got a separate hard drive purposely for the Wii formated as wbfs

    so far all 184 games i downloaded are playable with 1 as exception
    Dragon blade Wrath of Fire(jp) doesn't work probably cos its Japanese

    Try using Configurable and set the video patch option to on for that game. It should get it working (unless there's also an IOS reload issue in that game).

    Yes it for sure is.

    EDIT: Installed a new cIOS222, which loader should try?

    EDIT2: cIOS222 works with Configurable USB Loader, thanks to all.

    Topic may now be closed, if the mods so wish.
