    Hi, I'm using a Kingston 4 GB that's on the list of approved ones, and I've tried 2-3 different USB loaders and none of them seem to recognize the drive. I've had it preformatted using the computer program (the WBFS thing) and even tried regular FAT-32 on the Wii. Still doesn't work. Ugh.

    Neither work. When I would click on HBC the drive'll flash a few times like it normally does when being read, but when I use either program (USB Loader GX and SD/USB Loader) it'll just flash once or twice slowly. In either port.

    Is the flash drive really WBFS formatted ?
    Place it in port 1.

    I used the WBFS Manager 3.0 or whatever on the PC to format it to WBFS. I even added Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 onto it. I'll run USB Loader GX and it'll just say cannot find flash drive retry for 30 seconds? And gives me the option of selecting 222 or 249. If I pick the one on the right (I believe it's 222) my Wii will freeze, the music will keep playing, but it'll freeze.
