    Hey, so I've just installed cios rev 13 from waninkoko in an attempt to play ghostbusters, since then my drive will not detect in USB loader 1.5 or in the GX loader.
    I'm using a 320gb seagate free agent, which up until this point has been working just fine.
    i had been getting stuck on either a black or green screen when trying to launch ghostbusters, depending on which loader I would use, but now since the upgrade I can't detect the drive at all.
    I used CustomIOSIntaller 2.0 and initially tried to install IOS38, which failed.
    I'm not sure why I though 38 was right, but I then successfully installed IOS249 (which I think was the correct version), which is when I encountered this issue.
    Then I went ahead and tried 250 to see if that would work, and the same thing occurred.

    Any ideas?
    (Yeah, I'm kind of a noob)

    plug the usb cable into the OTHER usb slot on your wii and completely reboot it. should work then.

    so I ran the installer for 249 again, same result, but I switched the USB port and it worked.
    traditionally that USB port has NEVER worked, and the other one has always worked.
    ghost busters ended up working too

    Hi Guys I'm getting the same type of deal, Prior to installing CIOS rev13, my USB hard drive was always connect to port 1 (if Wii is flat, top port). This would work without having to connect a separate cable to power the usb drive.
    Now that i installed rev13, i believe the top port will no longer work for usb drives, so i switched to the bottom port. It now will only work if i have a separate power cable connected (my enclosure came with a usb power cable) The other problem I'm now getting is it randomly freezes when loading the games, this never used to happen when i had rev10 installed.

    So i re-installed rev10 cause it seemed to work better for me, but i still can't use USB1 port to load the game now.

    My wii is 4.0e and using usb loader cfg31c
