    I'm having issues trying to play games from USB. I softmoded my WII 4.3U (letterbomb), install homebrew channel, cios and everything went fine. But when I play games from my usb device they freezes after a while. It happened with Sports resort and the Smurfs: Dance Party (the only two I tried already). Could anybody help me?
    Many thanks.

    1) USB Loader GX is to blame.
    2) Drive spindown is happening.
    3) USB Loader GX is to blame.
    4) You have bad dumps.
    5) USB Loader GX is to blame.

    Try Configurable USB Loader and/or a different drive.
    Flash based ones, like USB sticks and SSD's, do not suffer from drive spindown.

    Turned out to be a compatibility issue between my usb stick and usb loader. Many thanks to everybody. Feel free to close this topic if you want.
