    Alright, so then when I try to load some games in USB Loader or Wiiflow, I get a black screen saying loader.dol can't be found. Some games work, some don't.

    I got a Wii v4.2U
    IOS 236
    cIOS38 rev14
    HBC 1.1.0

    Followed all instructions correctly. Some games work, some don't and I get that message.

    Please include details about how your games are backed up to your USB device.

    I recommend you make sure you are using the latest version of Wiiflow (I personally recommend you use the latest version of CFG Loader Mod). You should also use ModMii to install the latest recommended cIOS files.

    If you update to d2x v8, your error should go away. cIOS38 rev14 is rather old :P

    You should use ModMii's wizard to update your softmod.

    Sorry for delay. Here are what I can provide at this time:

    Nintendo Wii is version 4.2U
    SD Card formatted in FAT32 contains:
    USB Loader GX

    BootMii installed
    IOS 236 installed
    Cios 138 rev 17 installed
    4 GB memory stick loaded with the games, plugged into the back of usb port 0

    Homebrew Channel v 1.1.0

    I am looking into ModMii right now, hopefully it can solve some problems. Why does some games need a "loader.dol" while others work fine.

    Use CFG usb loader and d2x v8 cios's and your problems should go away.

    Just update your Cios's AND GX and again everything should be fine, no need for wiiflow or cfg unless you want to change

    K, but should I delete some Cios's or just install updated versions? I've installed a few outdated ones and I'm wondering if it's okay to delete them.

    I'm loving CFG. Two questions about it, then a seperate question:

    1) How do I move CFG out of the HBC and onto a Wii Channel?
    2) When I quit a Wii game from CFG, it goes back to the main Wii lobby. When I quit a Wii game, I want to get straight back to the game selection screen in CFG.

    3) Can a 128 gig SD card be used with Wii/HBC/CFG/Wiiflow, etc.?

    And btw, thanks Luigi for introducing me to CFG.

    Just overwrite the cios's, no need to delete

    1) get the cfg forwarder
    2) Either use priiloader to auto start the wii in to cfg (starting the .dol file) - I dont use cfg but does it have a return to function in the menu's (GX does)
    3) I suspect not anything over 32GB is sdxc and uses a different addressing format, but I may be wrong.

    I can get iso forwarders to work only if I put nandgames on my sd. if I do not have an sd card installed and I only have nandgames on the root of my usb hdd, I get "can't find Loader.dol." I am wondering if this is because my usb always shows up as usb1:// and not usb://. Any ideas?
