    I'm using a 8GB Kingston DataTraveler USB Pen drive and I've used WBFS Manager to format it and load Other M NTSC on it. When I try and load the drive, uLoader simply crashes and Loader GX only displays the white background for a while and tells me my drive is not formatted. I can play Monster Hunter Tri fine though from that same drive. Any idea?

    4.0U with Hermes' CIOS

    Well Uloader works fine with it when loading from the disk... lol but they should at least see the drive?

    Have other games loaded successfully from that thumb drive?

    Others will have more information then I do lol

    Other M works great as long as you use USB Loader GX to specs - Try using Hermes cIOS 222 v4. It turns out v5 isn't supported. I use Rev 899 as I've had no reason to update and it works great. Also they don't support cIOS rev 20 either, only up to rev 17. Check out the main GX thread and double check me.

    got it working now lol and it was nothing to do with usb loader gx.i use newsbin to download and have it set to unrar after download.deleted game from hdd and then i unrared metroid other m manually.put it back on to hdd used ios 222 and everything else at default settings and it worked first time.so i guess it must of not unrared properly.thats auto unrar turned of for good now.as i said loaded usb loader gx changed game load to default and changed ios to 222.

    Sigh, are you guys even reading at all? My problem isn't with booting the game (yet), it's the fact both uLoader and USB Loader GX simply FAIL at loading my thumb drive when Other M is on it... when it always did with other games.

    I'm using the 7.92Gb release... I think I'm gonna try the 4.31Gb one.

    try formatting your drive using usb loader gx and see if that helps you.

    Maybe try using CFG Loader instead? Personally GX never loads anything for me.

    i made an account right now just to tell you that this happened to me. what happened to me was when my 16gig flash drive got close to the maximum capacity, the last games i added to the drive would not load at all.

    when i put brawl on my drive first then other games (these games are small in size) second, only brawl worked
    then when i put the other games first and brawl second, brawl would not load at all and would either black screen or send me to wiimenu.

    before my 300gig hdd broke it could hold and play as many games i put in it.

    so i think u should get a bigger flash drive

    Yeah, it sounds to me as though it could be an issue of capacity. Trying to put an 8GB game on an 8GB drive doesn't leave much room for error.
    I have the game on my 80GB HDD and it's running just fine with USBLoader GX.
