    Ive actually followed so many tuts online, watched videos, tried diff versions of diff loaders that im confused what im even doing now! I tried to re hack the wii many times. It wont detect anything no matter what. I have tried both usb ports. I have tried 4 different brand usb sticks, 2 different external hard drives.

    Tried
    USB loader gx
    Neogamma
    Configurable usb loader
    wiiflow

    Tried PNY usb sticks
    Sandisk cruzer glide usb stick
    WD mybook 320gb external hdd
    WD Mybook 2tb external hdd

    About 2 years ago I have a modded wii working perfect with a external wd mybook. It didn't seem nearly this difficult to mod.

    This is one of the first wii's that plays GC games, does that make a diff?

    Bases and cios's? Im confused...

    Thank you for any help!

    cIOS need a base IOS to pull data from, some work better than others. Your 249 (Common USB Loader IOS) is fine.

    When you say not picked up, you mean not at all, like if you put hbc apps on it they don't show up in the homebrew channel?

    From the information given, format your hard-drive in FAT32 32KB Cluster Size, and set the partition active. (I use EPM for this, remember to click apply)
    Your current cIOS in slot 249 is fine, albeit a tad outdated, but it'll work just fine, it has the right base ios and everything.

    Transfer your Wii Games to USB with Wii Backup Manager, get USB Loader GX v3.0 (IOS 249), and replace the boot.dol with the most updated build (Again 249 Build)
    It should be functional at that point, or so I would imagine.

    If it's not, you have a lot of bad USB Drives or your Wii's USB Port(s?) is broken.

    I don't usually do this stuff anymore, but I still know everything.

    Thanks, I tried your suggestion of formatting to fat32 with 32kb clusters. I tried 2 different drives. My external drive makes HBC freeze as its loading. The usb flash drive just doesn't read from any loader.

    I used wii backup manager and tried to load something on it. Doesn't matter since the wii wont initialize any usb.

    I replaced the boot.dol in the usbloader_gx folder with the updated one you posted (249).

    This is so frustrating!!! I did a wii a couple years ago and it was like cake!!

    I don't think the usb ports are bad. When I plug a usb into it while the countdown is going it freezes for a second then just keeps counting down.

    Im about to give up :( I re formatted 4 usb sticks and 1 external hdd wd mybook 320gb. none of them still detect. I can get to the usbloader list view but it only shows the files on the sd card.

    my syscheck looks correct? I spent countless hours trying things!!

    This is one of the first wii's that plays GC games, does that make a diff?
