I followed the guide on wii.guide to install Bootmii, Cios, WiiFlow, and USGLoaderGX. Games were working fine off the SD Card in WiiFlow for a while. I then installed some WADs (WiiWare games) and a loader channel for WiiFlow. The WAD WiiWare games installed work fine. I can get to WiiFlow iwht the loader. However, games will no longer load off the SD Card. WiiFlow flashes the disc drive led and goes to a black screen. USBLoaderGX won't even load the list of Wii Games - it says: "USB Device not initialized. Switching to channel list mode."

I searched for solutions to this and tried the following suggestions with no luck:

CHKDSK on SD Card
Re-format SD Card (FAT32) and copy content back
Re-install CIOS as instructed in wii.guide
Change CIOS used in WiiFlow from AUTO to 249, 250, 251. Some of these kicked me back tot he Wii menu. Others gave the same black screen.

Nothing seems to fix it. What is the easiest way for me to get games loading off the SD Card again? Is there a way to start fresh and re-start this entire process?

Usb loader gx won't run wii games from SD card AFAIK. It will wiiware and cube.
Ok, good to know. It was at least loading the games list before, and now it's not...so both USBLoaderGX and WiiFlow have an issue with something that changed on the SD Card.

I was using WiiFlow when it was working correctly off the SD Card. Is there way to reset everyhting so WiiFlow ill work again?

you can delete de config files from the wiiflow folder and the apps/wiiflow folder, it should make wiiflow factory default again
