    ok so heres the problem im having its kinda odd, if i go into usb loader gx and try to start a gamecube game sometimes i will get a black screen, well then i restart my wii and go into cfg usbloader and try the same game and it works, so i figure maybe its just an issue with gx, so i stop and come back later and try to load a game from cfg usbloader and get a black screen, so i try gx again and it works, i have no idea whats going on or how to fix it, also when i play any resident evil games or atleast the ones i can get to install my usb hdd they freeze after a while so any help with these issues wouold be great!

    EDIT: ok i just did a test using a 8gig thumb drive and i put some of the gamecube games thats been giving me issues on it and so far its been working great im still testing so i will let you all know but would like to hear anyone elses advice on the issues at hand

    The blackscreen or Wii shutting down is a (random) problem caused by DM itself. changing the loader was just a coincidence. You could have tried the same loader and it would have worked.

    Having freeze in game could be caused by your HDD sleep time, though v2.6 made a watchdog to call the HDD every 25 seconds to prevent the drive going to sleep.
    but it could still be a problem with the cache of the drive, if DM request multiple time the same sector to keep it awake it will use the cache and the drive don't need to spin, letting it go to sleep.

    Using the flashdrive fix it, as there's no spinning motor, no sleep timer.


    To fix that, check if your HDD brand has an utility to disable the timer. (Seagate and Western Digital often provide it with the drive, pre-loaded on the partition).
