    Earlier today I went and bought a 40 dollar usb stick to continue sticking ISO's and such on and converted it too WBFS to put some Wii Iso's on. I quickly gave up on that after I had trouble with the USB Loader so I formatted it and tried loading some additonal gamecube isos I have rather then Wii Isos and also added WII64... However I kept getting EXCEPTION DSI Error anytime I would have the stick in the Wii. So I format it again, and reload everything and once again, DSI Error. I try deleting Wii64 and using it with only Nintendont and I still get the error message, I format again and try deleting Nintendont this time but keeping Wii64 and still I get the error. So this leads me to believe it's an error with my USB Stick and not Nintendont8/Wii 64 as they both load on my other,smaller USB

    I currently have nothing on it other then WII64. Any fixes for this or should Is my Flash completely useless now????

    I have very basic knowledge of how stuff like this works. Basically all I know how to do is play gamecube ISOs through nintendont,Download homebrew and add additional apps to homebrew(and trust me it took me quite a while to even figure these things out)

    • 64 GB(:E) PNY Drive USB Stick
    • File System// ExFat (With default Allocation)

    I used
    • WBFS Manager 3.0
    and initially converted my USB to WBFS with Wii Game Manager(and then additionally WBFS after if that could of been a problem)

    ExFAT won't work, also don't use WBFS Manager as it's known to corrupt games, use FAT32 format with Wii Backup Manager instead.

    So I only have an option to Format to NTFS or Exfat....so does that mean I'm s.o.l??? OR is there a program that could let me convert to fat 32

    FAT32 Formatter GUI, the official SD Card Formatter, or hell some Windows built-in command-line utility can probably do it.

    Thanks guys! Problem solved now this drive is fully functional after being converted to Fat32. Although I still do get the error if I have both USBs in but that's no biggie

    You shouldn't use two USB storage devices at once either on an original Wii or vWii.

    Why does it crash when using 2 USBS?

    Dunno... out of memory, maybe? The file tables for both drives have to be open to access them.

    I don't know on per say wii games. But I use a combination of wii and gamecube games and for the safety of the gamecube games save data I don't.
    From the nintendont post:
    Features Nintendont doesn't support yet:
    • BBA/Modem support
    • Dual ports support DO NOT CONNECT TWO DRIVES AT THE SAME TIME! (even a WiiU Formated drive). It will either not boot, or corrupt your savegames.
    Also some Cios only support 1 usb.

    Either way to play it safe I only use 1 usb storage device at a time.

    Oh okay thanks for showing me that!! I had no clue tbh, but I think you might of prevented some corrupted files because the other day I was trying over and over to get both flashes to work
