    ...so i have this 8GB thumbdrive (FAT32, single partition) that i have been using for Mighty Channels NAND and for .avi files for WiiMC (the actual apps i load from SD)...it's been working fine with this arrangement for months.

    i noticed odd behavior in Mighty Channels after updating the cIOS from v17 to v21-d2x-v6....gave up on that...then took the the drive to the computer to load an .avi... the computer said it needed to be formatted...which i did...then reloaded the thumbdrive.... now no homebrew apps on the wii will recognize it: WiiMC says there's no drive, MC says can't access USB NAND, MPlayer says USB not mounted.... but the computer says the files are there and the .avi's will launch on the PC just fine.... i copied files from this thumbdrive to another 8GB thumbdrive and that one works just fine in the wii....

    HBC will recognize the thumbdrive though...i can put an apps folder there with a few HBC apps and HBC will launch them from it. i can even launch WiiMC from this USB drive, then WiiMC in turn will say there's no USB drive...so strange....

    i tried rolling back cIOS249 to v17 again, but that didn't do anything (as i suspected)...

    is there any reason a thumbdrive would work fine for the wii, then stop...? what am i missing here? all my other USB peripherals work fine (various other thumbdrives and three different portable HDDs over the past year or so)
