    Hey there! So my issue is this: I'm trying to test out a game with WiiFlow and I can't get the game to boot. I had it in a loading screen of some type but it would never complete and allow access to the game. I'm using a WBFS formatted 64GB ONN USB Drive. This drive used to work in NeoGamma and Configurable USB Loader but doesn't anymore. I have it force loading cIOS 251 but I now have it set to AUTO. I'm using USB Port 0. I've tried changing the video mode from Progressive to NTSC to Game to System. I'm running the latest version of WiiFlow. All of the USB drives I attempted to use were formatted with Wii Backup Manager, and are MBR

    Try using fat32 instead of wbfs. The file system is much better, it allows windows to read your flash drive, and it is overall easier to work with. There is a program called “wbfs2fat” (do a quick google search) That will convert your wbfs drive to fat32 without losing any data.

    ONN drives, alone are of pretty poor quality, but it's also important to note that the Wii is very spotty with USB thumbdrives. It's best to use a USB hard drive or SSD instead. Have you tried any other drives, or even SD loading?

    I don't have access to any of that. I would use an SD but the only decent sizes I have I'm using for the Switch once I get it repaired.

    Would my games being in .wbfs instead of .iso have anything to do with it?

    @XTHHedgehog if you have a Fat32 partition you should have the games in .wbfs format. If your drive was a D drive, the path would be like this:

    D/wbfs/Game Title [gameID]/gameID.wbfs

    Obviously replace the two “GameID”s with the proper game ID, and replace game title with whatever the title of the game is (or get rid of it. That part doesn’t matter, its just the gameID in brackets that matters). Make sure it is in this file structure.

    Then yeah. That's already done then. Wii Backup Manager automatically did it for me.

    @XTHHedgehog Then I’m sorry I’m not sure how to fix your issue.

    @XTHHedgehog thats strange because for me USB Loader GX wasn’t working and I had to resort to wiiflow. I think that wiiflow is better overall though.
