    I have been modding wii's for the past year give or take and loading roms from usb the whole time. Lately, it seems as if a lot of "new" wii's are having issues loading any roms from usb, but only sometimes. It doesn't matter if I load from the homebrew channel or from a forwarder, the success rate is about the same. Sometimes it works perfectly, but I would say about 60% of the time my friends or myself get an error "USB drive not found" in tantric's and "can not open path" in eke-eke's. However I never have a problem loading covers/config for usb loader(which makes me think it could be how the emulators are coded?). Is anyone else experiencing such issues or am I alone in this? And what could be causing this? For the most part lately I have been following xzxero's guide (haven't been installing dvdx from hackmii installer and I am most def not blaming this on him or implying in any way this is his fault, it is an excellent guide). Below is a list of the ios's it contains. Do any of these interfere with usb loading? Anyone else have any ideas? Furthermore, I read somewhere that having cios202 installed can cause problems with usb loading, so I deleted it using anytitledeleter on a friend's wii, and it is still experiencing the same issues. And on a side note, when loading from TroyTheZombie's hybrid channels from the sd card. They never work, it always says usb drive not found. Dunno if that helps [​IMG]

    Thanks a million in advance!

    Adding on... I have absolutely no issues at all with older wii's... They work 100% of the time... So I am really stumped here... Haven't had the time to try TroyTheZombie's loaders on an older wii yet however...

    First they are ISOs, roms are only for cartridge games like the ds... second, I don't think those IOSes interfere at all with USB loading, because if they did anyone that had ever followed the simplistic guide would have problems with USB. I'm not sure what could be causing the problem, maybe it's the usb hard drive/flash drive that is not ok.

    Or maybe it has to do with the channel; though I really doubt it, you should try using another channel (my channel is on my signature if you want to try [​IMG]) and see if it still doesn't work. Also try different USB loaders, one may work.

    I think you misread my post... I am having issues with loading roms in the emulators from usb, not wii backups... And I also said it didn't matter if I loaded it through a forwarder or from the hbc... Either way, thanks for the reply...

    And to add, I know it isn't the usb drive, because the same usb drive that works 100% of the time on one, only works 40% of the time on another... It is def. something with the wii... Whether it is hardware related that nintendo did, software related that nintendo did, or software related that I did, is what I am trying to figure out... I'm really leaning towards something that nintendo did because it seems to only occur/be more prevalent in wii's with serials in the upper 60's and above...

    Thanks again!

    Just in case anyone reads this thread, it was due to the fat filesystem being corrupt, only slightly I guess, because it never asked to run checkdisk in windows 7. After re-formatting and copying, all is well.

    Have you tried the other USB port?
    Do you have anything else plugged into your USB ports?
