    Hello, I´m using USBloader gx on my wii, and when trying to play Sing 4, the game works but the it asks to connect the usb microphone... they are already connected, I bought two mics from speedlink and they are connected to the bottom usb door, on the top usb door it´s the HDD where the game is... Before writing here I´ve been through may forums looking for a solution, some suggested updating the ios, trying to use ios 222 or 223 or 249 or 250, but none of these worked... So I really could use some help making this work, ´cause since I spent money on the mics, it would be a shame if I didn´t use them ( oh and by the way, they work on the computer, I tested them).
    Thanks in advance

    It may be the SpeedLink mics are incompatable.

    Most Wii singing games use a wired Logitech Vantage USB Microphone.

    The PS2/3, Xbox 360, PC, Guitar Hero, etc. varients use the same hardware so prehaps you can borrow one to test?

    Yeah you can't just buy a microphone and use it on the wii. You must know the drivers are hard coded in the wii so maybe this microphone type just haven't got a compatible driver. As Ramzee said try another one.

    "trying to use ios 222 or 223 or 249 or 250"

    whereever you got your infos before, look for a new place, that's useless.

    Install d2x v6 or 7 with base IOS56 as IOS249, and then set your loader to use IOS249 in general or for this game specific, and try again. And if that does not work, try again with base IOS57.

    Buy a mic specially designed for the Wii... eBay would probably have some cheap stuff...

    For me, I had to put the HDD on the bottom USB port and the microphone on the top. Also, I had to use 222 or 223 (I can't remember which now). 222/223 should be Hermes V4 or V5.

    You should always have the HDD in the bottom port and anything else in the other port.
