I have followed every HOW TO on YouTube, nothing works. What happens falls into 2 categories. The first being that the audio cuts out and some entities behave oddly. In Mario kart Wii the CPUs will stop rubberbanding/rubberband past you, and whenever you hit a boost panel the game freezes and doesn't respond. Same goes for any other game, in Mario and Sonic Olympic Games 2012 you can usually get to the event screen, but when I select a character the game freezes. This is all the first category. The second Category is that a game will work, but only for a few seconds/minutes. But decides to freeze without warning.

I also don't know how to copy my Wiis data. So someone please help me with showing you what is wrong.
Smaller Details - No Buzzing sound when the game freezes
- Wii Remote stays connected Even when game crashes
- This Wii was heavily modified when I got it, but I formatted it and followed the USB loader gx guide (

Are you using a USB flash drive or an HDD? USBs are notoriously known to cause problems... Just to test things now, copy/or use a new copy of the game that you're having issues with, and copy it into the SD card, test again and see if it's still the same or not.

A USB Flash Drive that is 128 gigs running Fat32. I actually have another Wii that does work, and that same USB flash drive works perfectly for any amount of time on the other Wii, but on this Wii it does not work. Games Will often start, but they always inevitably crash at some point.

Using a SDD or SD doesn't make a difference

So you've tried launching the game from SD card and still same result? If so run a syscheck, maybe its missing a cIOS or something.

And you are plugging in the usb in the right-most usb port, right?

The right Most port(if you are looking at the back). How do I run a syscheck? I have never heard of that from any of the Tutorials.

So you made me think of something, I tried my dads SDD on this wii and it worked perfectly. (This was after the SYScheck). So maybe I do have a bad FlashDrive. I will let you know how thigs turn out.

Boy, I welcome you anyway.

But as you can clearly see this is not the right section; reading these things here is annoying and almost unbearable.
But don't you see the title of this forum? And yes, you are American, and you should read english well...
This exchange of advice should be moved from here!

This is my introduction, me needing help. Thank you SO MUCH Coolme, it was that my usb port had an invent copper pin. So I modified my ports and now it works flawlessly. I would have never found that out without doing a syscheck and using bootmii. I actually made an emulation of my Wii on my pc and ran through every config of the IOSs to see that the problem was a faulty connection. So your advice did help. What a legend

Huh. How did you get that from what he suggested? What do you even mean by an "invent" copper pin?

So the usb port had a bent pin you mean? Did you visually inspect the port and is it working fine now? Also the syscheck checks for missing IOS/cIOS, and doesn't tell/show you anything about if your usb port is faulty AFAIK.

Okay so I guess I was hype and didn't elaborate. The sys check pretty much told me that me IOS config looked fine, and that it should work. Which lead me to believe that something else was going wrong. So I downloaded a copy of my Wii on BootMii, and I ran an emulation of my wii of another wii hooked up to my computer. But when I was looking through my ports I noticed that on the wii I was working on it was having miscommunications woth the USB Flashdr9ve, which either means it is incompatible or that something is wrong with the physical port. So I took my wii apart and checked the Soldering, but it looked fine, nothing was wrong with it, and then I looked inside of the port, and I had a pin that got caught on the USB copper pin, and was bent in at a loose V. When I saw this I was beyond furious because I have spent roughly 40 hours on what should take 15 minutes. Anyway I resolved this by taking apart a multi port adapter and putting that in the spot where my old usb ports were, and at first I thought that it was a long shot, but surprisingly it works. But the 4th and 5th port act like the second port on the wii normally, which is not at all. I am not that good with the Wiis systems, but I am half decent at soldering and so far it has continued to work just fine.

Did you te re-bend the pin (it could still work) or was it damaged badly? Also do you have this usbhub/adapter thing that you've soldered in place of the old one, is it stuck in place and you carved the Wii shell to make it fit (since it's 5 port hub) or is it just dangling there? If so It could rip from the board..
