thanks to this forum and yafaze.com after 2 weeks of messing with my system i finally had everything working fine. here are my specs... Wii info: LU36, 4.0U (Virgin), Bootmii, Preloader, cIOS38 rev13 HBC, Homebrew Browser, USB Loader (r707), NeoGamma R4, Wwestern Digital 1T, Backup Launcher 0.3 I decided that western 1T was a waste of space so i bought Hitachi 640 GB, after about a week or so all of my games began to shot down, wii stopped playing all of my back ups one by one, i would start the game it would only show the "connect the nunchucks screen" and then freeze, now it doesn't even do that, but freezes as soon as i start the game, just goes to the black screen and that happens on both USB Loader and NeoGamma. I switched back to Western Digital but no results. I back up a game to hard drive via USB Loader, it plays it for a day or so and then nothing, out of 30+ games only one works. Any idea what is happening? Any HELP would be much appreciated!!!
