Hacking Homebrew Help Fixing Black Screen on USB Loader GX

Hi! I realize this is the nth thread about black screens on USB Loader GX but I've read a lot of them and I still can't fix my issue so I thought I'd ask.

I’m a complete noob with modding and this is my first time modding a Wii. I have successfully followed the instructions on WiiGuide to install the Homebrew Channel, bootMii (creating a NAND backup), Priiloader, CIOS, and the Homebrew Browser. I have installed USB Loader GX from the Homebrew Browser.

I am using an old 320GB Western Digital Passport External Hard Drive (can't find the model number rn, but it's one of the old ones with the logo in the middle) which I've formatted to FAT32. I have a couple of games (Mario Party 8, Kirby's Epic Yarn) which I downloaded from the Internet Archive (originally as .rvz, then converted to .iso using Dolphin) and transferred to the Hard Drive using Wii Backup Manager (correctly, so they're now in .wbfs format in their respective folders). I have made sure to use Port 0 and I have verified that the games work on Dolphin.

Games show up on USB Loader and I can download box art, but when attempting to run any game the screen turns black and the Wiimote disconnects. After this the console cannot be turned off and the power cable must be disconnected to shut down the Wii. I also got a screen showing 'Exception DSI has occurred' once. I tried WiiFlow too and I get the same result: Progress bar stops halfway, wiimote disconnects, console cannot be shut down.

I have also tried using a Kingston 8GB Flash Drive in FAT32 to see if my HDD was at fault and I got the same results. I've attached the syscheck and I would be tremendously grateful if any of you can help me because I don't know what to do. I'm going to try using a Y-cable but I hace a feeling it won't solve the issue.
