    I've successfully played deadly creatures from an 8gb flash drive and from the burnt disc but i just got a new 250gb maxtor one touch mini 4 and so far the game will not play at all.Just loads a solid green screen then returns to the wii menu.


    Any idea why this happens?


    I formatted the new hard drive straight outta the box on the wii.
    I know the ISO file is good because ive played it on another flash drive and i've burnt it and played it.

    it was probably low level formatted, try formatting in your pc first to NTFS.

    Did you check that other games work on the hard drive and not just the one? Some have compatibility issues or don't really work at all.

    That was the problem.

    Tried it with the new hard drive without disc again and it wouldnt work.Added a disc and it worked.

    Tried it on the flash drive without a disc and it wouldnt work.Put a disc in and it worked.


    I guess when i've played it half a dozen times before i always had some random disc in.I never thought i did though.


    Thanks again
