    |OK, so my games were crashing while running them off the HDD via usb loader. I read somewhere on GBATemp that setting the HDD to Cable Select from MAster might resolve the problem. So I did this, and when I loaded it up in USB Loader it gave the error message

    Error: Could not initialise USB subsystem! (ret = -1)

    Press any button to restart

    So I took the HDD out of it's enclosure again, and removed the jumper from the HDD to set it back to MAster. But now when I load via USB Loader, it gives the same error message. I did reformat the drive via WBFS Manager 2.2, and the drive was recognised before, it was just games that crashed.

    What can I do to resolve this? I'm on CIOS9 with USB Loader 1.1 - I was running CIOS10 + USB Loader 1.5 before previously

    Location, location, location.
    load USBloader, reinsert HDD, see if it still gives you the error.
