    Hello.:)

    From personal Experience I can say - WD HDD.
    They are really very compatible and reliable for the USBLoader GX.


    Thank you.:)

    I'd go with WD HDD.
    SSD will not benefit from its speed, and it's more expansive for no reason if you use it for wii games only. use it for other things (PS4 external ? but you also need to change the internal to ssd to see improvement)
    SSD could also not work, based on its brand/model.
    At least we know WD HDDs are working, and even have a tool to edit the seen sector size (if you get a bigger than 2TB you'll be able to format it up to 16TB, which is not possible with other Brands)


    @adli
    oh, sorry I didn't see your answer before.

    I'm glad you finally found a working device, so we can now be sure it's not a setup issue, but really a hardware & device problem.

    You might have USB Port 0 issue, and if it's a power issue, you could try with an externally powered HDD ?
    but if you don't have one yet, maybe you can also try with a Y-cable to get power from both ports?
    if you could use port0 that would be better for game compatibility (because port1 works only with r53, which has bugs. Or hermes which doesn't support emuNAND, IOS reload block, and is a little old).

    At least, you know port1 works, and you can play GC games :)

    like you noticed, USBGX is only for USB.
    Wiiflow let you play games from SD ! (up to 32GB SDHC, no SDXC!)


    Did you try USBGX with your microSD plugged on USB port1?

    same as the previous user, I would go with a WD HDD, they are known working.
    if port0 need more power, and y-cable helps, it's all benefit.
    if port1 is the only solution, it's already very very good alternative for wii games! r53 has some issues, but should work with most games. only very specific ones might not work (just dance? Kirby?)

    ah, also, r53 might not work with games on SD card, so wiiflow will need r52 if you play from SD.

    It's lot of small different setup combination due to your problem, but eventually when you remember all the requirement it should be fine to use your console.

    Hello,

    use an external hard drive, and everything will be fine. After you see the number of GO you want and the number of games you put.

    GO ?
    you mean Giga Octets?
    I'm not sure other countries uses Octets, but bytes :P
    it's confusing to use B for both bit and bytes. I like the french "O" instead but not everyone would understand it.

    My problem seems similar to many that are being seen here and I was wondering if I could get some advice.
    I have a USB flash harddrive and all of my GameCube titles start fine. I have one title (DanceDanceRevolution3) that work as a USB load but none of my other titles work (marioPart8 is the title I have tried the most options with). The most common behaviour is tha the screen will simply go all white or all black. I have used both wiiflow and usbloaderGx as the game loader
    I did a syscheck and it is here

    Hello.:)

    Welcome to GBAtemp and to the Wii Section.

    Thank you for your sysCheck,it is ok,nothing to complain about.:D

    You have tried other USBLoaders,so it is maybe the Flash Drive.

    Have you please checked the following Points please ?

    - is it connected to Port 0 ?
    index.jpg
    - is it formatted with FAT32 ? (I think so because NINTENDONT/GameCube Games are working as you said).
    - did you always used the WiiBackup Manager for the Game Transfer from the PC to the Flash Drive ?
    - your Wii ISO´s/Games are checked/verified and not corrupt/bad ?
    (you can use this Online Site
    or an Tool like this https://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/Wii_ISO_MD5_Generator and compare it on this Site please: https://www.gametdb.com/Wii/Search

    Please have a Look on this Points and please be so kind and give us Feedback on your Progress.:)
    Please consider your Flash Drive can also be incompatible for Wii Games/USB Loading.

    Good Luck and
    Thank you.:)

    Thanks for the reply, I've just seen it a little late :lol:
    I hadn't thought about the y-cable option, I don't have one lying around but I'll get one to see if it works and that way I'll know for sure whether it was a power issue.

    I did try with the sd card (with the usb converter) in port 1 but I still got nothing.

    The other thing that confuses me is that I've tried with r53 (on both 249 base 56 and 250 base 57) just like Cyan suggested but it still kicks me back to the menu. Could that be because it doesn't allow me to change to port 1 in the USBLoaderGX Hard Drive settings? I always get the "USB port changing is only supported on Hermes CIOS" message... And another thing is that while it always recognizes the HDD no matter the port as long as it's on IOS58, I've noticed that it doesn't detect it at first, goes to the 20 second countdown and then after that it detects it automatically every time. No sure whether that helps.

    Anyway you guys have already helped out a lot so I really appreciate it.

    Hey, so I've suddenly started having this problem with USB Loader recently. It used to work just fine but now it boots back to system menu when I choose a game.
    I have priiloader installed and always have "Force Disk to run under IOS 249" checked in system menu hacks. All my wbfs files were transferred to my external HDD (FAT32) via Wii Backup Manager and they are all being recognized as per usual. I can run Gamecube games through Nintendon't just fine also. Any help would be appreciated.
    Edit: Resolved. Seems like the USB port I have been using stopped working for the loader but the other one still works fine.

    Hello.:)

    Welcome to GBAtemp and the Wii Section.

    Thank you for your sysCheck,please check of an "typing Error":

    IOS249[37] (rev 65535, Info: d2x-v10beta52): Trucha Bug, NAND Access, USB 2.0

    It it is so,please change it to Base 56 ! This Configuration can not work.:(
    (You can use the d2x cIOS Installer on your Wii)

    Please check this and then be so kind and report back please.:)

    This have no Effect on the USBLoader GX,it is only for Disc Loading.:)

    Thank you.:)

    Hello.:)

    You got a Recommendation from @Cyan and 1 User.:)

    I think this is not a WD HDD ? :)
    Maybe your HDD needs more Power ?

    Did you use USB Port 0 on your Wii ?
    index.jpg

    You can post a sysCheck if you like to see your Softmod is ok.
    Which USBLoader and Version did you use please ?

    Thank you.:)

    Thank you.:)

    Your sysCheck is good.:)

    For USBLoader GX r1272 please try:

    - Settings/Global Settings - Loader Settings - Loader´s IOS -> 58 or 249 (please restart the Loader after Changing)

    You can also try a later Build:
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/usbloadergx/files/Releases/New revisions (3.0+)/

    r1268 or 1271 are good.

    or you can try @blackb0x Enhanced Mod:

    Good Luck
