    Hello there everyone, I installed the homebrew channel + USB Loader GX last week and I've been having a lot of fun with it!

    I only had a 16GB USB key but it was working really fine for the 4 games I had. I went on Amazon and bought this USB key : "Lexar Jumpdrive S75 128GB
    LJDS75-128ABNL

    The problem is the following: If I plug in my USB key and then open Homebrew Channel, the channel will be empty and I'll have to reboot the Wii.
    If I open the homebrew channel and wait until I see the USB Loader GX button, THEN plug in my USB Key, it will work fine.

    What could be the reason for this...?

    Thank you :)

    Do not use flash drives on a Wii. Use a HDD.

    Flash drives have compatibility issues with USB loaders.

    Ohh are you kidding D: Spent 50$ on that damn key :(
    I guess I'll just keep removing the key before opening my Wii :/

    Thanks for your answers !
