Every time I try to load USB Loader GX, it says, " Waiting for your slow USB drive, loads for thirty seconds, and then Wii restarts. Help!! I have tried 2 USB Drives so far.

While it's waiting, try unplugging your drive completely, and then plug it back in. Some drives, mostly those with external power supplies, don't mount properly when you turn on the Wii and launch GX. If that doesn't work, maybe ensure you've set up the drive properly. It's recommended to format your drive or second partition to FAT32 (you can use the free program called Compuapps Swissknife) before formatting to WBFS. Then use WBFS Manager 3.0.1 to format to WBFS, and add an ISO on your PC first (if possible).

What brand/model of drives are you using? Have they been confirmed to work on the USB devices compatability list?

If you decide on getting a new drive, I recommend the 500gb Seagate Freeagent Go. I've put three of these drives through every possible test, including homebrew, MPlayerCE, multiple partitions, spindown errors, and they are FLAWLESS.

what cIOS rev are you running?
Be sure to try switching the ports. If you're running cIOS rev >11, GX will only detect on port 0 (leftmost if the console is standing).

Try to check if this is the case.

In other test you can see if it's detectable in another loader.

I think you mean rightmost (from behind)...

The easiest way to explain it is the one closer to the edge of the Wii.

I had to try three drives before I found one that would work (and both the ones that didn't were originally listed as OK on the USB Device List, so don't put all your faith in that). If the suggestions others have made here don't work then you'll have to buy a new one - from what I've read the small portable Western Digital drives have always worked for people.

Yeah it is on the compatibility list so please help me guys!
i'm not sure what build of gx you are using, but it used to be my sole loader, until my drive which had been supported perfectly since i began usb loading suddenly stopped being detected, much like yours. i switched over to configurable loader and its never given me a single issue.
