    When I load RB2 or GHWT from the usb drive (or a DVD-R), when I try to play DLC off the SD card, it says that the song is out of date and cannot be restored to Wii system memory, please download it again. Playing off the original disc works fine.

    Anyone else have, and maybe solved, this issue?

    Yeah that's a problem. What you CAN do, however, is insert a DIFFERENT sd card, and download the same DLC again, and use one card for DLC on-disc and one for usb loader DLC. When you redownload them in the loader, they'll work with the loader, but not with the disc, and vice versa.

    I have the same issue as described above.

    If I play Guitar Hero World tour from the original disc and download songs to an SDHC card then I'm able to play them without problem (if still running the game from the disc).

    However, if I run the game from USB loader, I can't play DLC-songs from SDHC hard (nor can I download them to the card), GHWT will tell me that there's an error when trying to download them there, and when trying to play them GHWT will tell me the songs are out of date.


    The solution described above does not work; "just using a different SD card". So, how can this problem be solved? I know of other people with the exact same problem so I'm not alone.

    Basically; how can you play GHWT from the USB loader and still play DLC from an SD / SDHC card?

    Thanks.

    Does this problem persist if your USB loader itself is stored on the USB hard drive (FAT32 partition)?
    As in, USB:/apps/usbloader/boot.dol
    Then the loader isn't running off of the SD card.

    someone put it very succinctly in another thread:the disc game doesnt know about dlc youve downloaded when playing the hd game, and the hd game doesnt know about dlc youve downloaded when playing with the disc game.given the choice of redownloading all my dlc just to play with my loader, i chose to just go back to playing off the disc.

    How does the game know how it was run? You're saying that DLC downloaded to the SD card when playing from a loader won't get detected when running it off of a disk later? I don't buy it.

    how what or why its doing what its doing, i have no idea...all i know is that when you attempt to play a song which was downloaded via the other method in rb2, it tells you the song is outdated and requires redownload - now, you can either do that for all of your songs, or you can roll back to the disc, which is what i did.

    easy enough to test though, isnt it?

    This is clearly an issue, and I can't believe no one has a solution to it.

    The thing is, when I play GHWT from the HD, it really can't access the SD-card in a proper way at all.

    Say I have no DLC stored anywhere.

    I start GHWT and go into the music shop.
    I buy a song, it starts downloading.
    After it has finished it will ask me for permissions to store the song on the SD-card:
    "Allow Guitar Hero to Save add-on content to the SD Card?"
    I give the permissions and it starts transferring.

    Now right at the end of the transfer there is an error;
    "ERROR. 201017: An error occured. Wait awhile and try again. If the same error keeps appearing, visit support.nintendo.com."

    Now if I go to Archive (Options -> Archive) in the game it will appear as if the song is stored on both the Wii itself, and the SD-card (despite the previous error). I CAN PLAY the song, however this is because the song is actually stored on the Wii.

    Now, if I in Archive try to delete the song, either from the Wii or the SD card, there will be another error. If I go back to the system menu and check the SD card, and the Wii itself, I find that there actually IS NOTHING stored on the SD card, and in the Wii the "Guiter Hero World Tour songs file" is stored (the Archive file). I delete this file from the Wii, and go back in the game. Now GHWT will tell me that there's no Archive-file and it has to be created and so on, and we're back at square 1, with no songs stored on the Wii or the SD card.

    If I were to download songs with the GHWT disc inserted, everything would work out just fine, even moving them to the SD card of course. However, if I then would try to play the songs from the game in HD, it would tell me the songs are out of date and need to be re-downloaded.


    If anyone wonders, I have the Waninkoko sys menu 4.0E and the cIOS36 rev13b installed.

    I just realized this too. My SDHC works with the system menu and the HBC, but its saying that "The device inserted in the SD Card Slot cannot be used" when using USB Loader GX. [​IMG]

    Yeah unfortunally hbs supports fat32/sdhc but almost all the apps still support fat16 only I hope they at least release new wad managers and usb loaders with fat32 support since now 16GB and more Sdhc are needed and by sd specifications they have to be formatted @ fat32.

    I have tested RB2 DLC redownloading with USB loader DX and it now works. I guess my next task is to get another SD card (has anyone had any luck with SDHC cards?) Now, using that loader, GHWT has no WiFi access. Is it the loader? I seem to remember that a different loader I tried a long time ago had the Wifi working. Since it's not possible to download DLC again without that, I'm screwed for now.

    Also, is there an easy way to just create a different card with the songs so they don't have to be redownloaded? This is especially an issue if I end up having issues with a loader and need to switch back to the disc (like maybe when GH5 comes out) that I can quickly update that library if all I was using was the loader.

    Thanks for any input.
