    I have problem starting games with cfg usb loader using games on HDD FAT32.

    In fact I successfully started games on USB stick 16GB (FAT32) but without success on 500GB HDD.
    Try out few versions of cfg usb loader, but the same thing happens every time. Also try to copy all content from USB stick to HDD, try to recreate fresh cfg usb loader on HDD, copy games via WBFS backup manager, try also every possible scenario using cfg loader on SD, cfg loader on USB HDD (SD is out), and also try cfg loader on SD card and usb-loader directory on USB. Nothing...

    In short, I can configure and start cfg loader on USB16GB stick, but can't make the same thing on USB 500GB HDD.

    On HDD (fat32) I can:
    - browse games via cfg loader (fat32)
    - hear the sound of game when is selected (fat32 + cfg loader)
    - even play videos from same HDD via WiiMC player (fat32)
    but I can't:
    - start the game (when I start game, instead of loading the game, dots doesn't show, but Wii is freezed)
    I need to restart Wii.

    Is there any log where I can see what happens in background? To help me to solve this probem?

    This HDD was formatted before as WBFS, and as WBFS works normally without problem.
    Can someone gave me a idea what to try, or what I did it wrong?


    Thank you.

    maybe you use settings/tools for fat32 creation that are somehow incompatible
    try different ones (I use mkfs.vfat, but ymmv)

    or you could try to get it working with WBFS and then use wbfs2fat

    Thank you for your reply.
    I already try different options using (Disks, Gparted) under Lubuntu without success.

    Now I think will try special fat32 format utility under Windows.


    P.S.
    WBFS to FAT32 that was my first idea, but after converting under Lubuntu, it didn't work :).

    Thank you for your reply.
    I contacted cfg usb loader mod official forum (on google code). All I need to do is upgrade cIOS on Wii and now it's working normally using latest cfg usb loader v070 r50 and ios250.
