    i could very well be wrong, but i thought .elf files were outdated, and .dol files are the replacement? take it for what its worth but maybe you need a newer version of your loader?

    First up this should have gone in the backup loaders section. Which cIOS(s) do you have installed and which USB loader are you trying to use?

    dols are basically compressed elfs.

    Try formatting 464gb Fat32 and the rest NTFS.
    Did you put the apps folder on the Fat 32 partition?

    ye 500gb partition end up being 499gb for what its worth, i think i have 249,222,223,250 maybe 2 others,
    games ive tried are mario kart with no trouble, just dance, super mario bros brawl, prince of persia forgotten sands of time, final fantasy crystal chronicles crystal bearers(worked for 15 min then froze), the other froze after loaded or just a black screen after loading

    ye now i have 499gb fat32 and rest another fat32 but all the wii stuff is on the 1 499gb,
    also usb-loader open up and itll freeze scrolling around through menus and cllicking on games before loading.

    I had a problem with Loader freezing when using a different TV to which i originally set up loader with. To fix problem i just deleted the .ini file from the loader folder

    No not the hacks.ini. I was useing wiiflow and deleted the Wiiflow config file from inside Wiiflow folder and when loaded up again it creates a new config file with new settings.. So thought usb-loader might be giving you same problem as mine only crashed when selecting loader like yours.

    Try deleting settings.cfg from usb-folder (move it else where and move back if doesnt work)

    I just thought it would be useful to point out that his usb-loader works with my hard drive, so it is definitely an issue with the files on his external drive or how its partitioned/formatted (as I know for a fact that his 750GB WD My Passport is compatible).

    Also, he has the following cIOSs installed
    249rev19base57
    250rev19base37
    222rev5base38
    223rev5base37
    224rev5base57
    202rev5base57

    Have you tried both versions of Cfg (249 and 222)?
