    IIRC, that game can't be USB loaded.
    EDIT: You have to use alt-dol. Open the ISO in Wiiscrubber and extract the DOL files for the episodes. You use those to load the game with the Alt-Dol option.

    To be honest, sam and max is impossible to search for just using the search function. if one word is equal or less than 3 letters, it'll fail.. sam and max are 3 3 letter words... [​IMG]

    On topic: I have no clue!

    Google search with "site:gbatem.net" is superior anyways.

    Sam & Max can be played with alt .dol+ (.wdm files). I played though the 1st episode on usb, i don't know what's causing your problem. To be honest it does sound like a bad release if it has the same issue from usb and disc. Hmm, maybe playing with another language works to get past that scene?

    I had exactly the same problem trying to search for this issue because of the 3 letter issue on this site (sam/max!). Ended up searching elsewhere for the answer.
    WiiPower is correct it requires the specific .wdm file (they can be downloaded) to be stored either on the sd card of usb drive and the use of alt-dol + to reference it. Not all USB loaders have the alt dol+ option (for example GX does not but cfg certainly does).
    You can only play the game on a chapter by chapter basis but that's better than not being able to play it at all.
    I assume when you say restarts you mean right after the initial cut scene?

    sam n max is only playable if you have a chip pretty much but do yourself a favor and download the pc version instead it's less buggy and laggy. but i've successfully played both seasons on my wii through to the end using wiikey 1.

    I think you mean only playable in its entirety. It is perfectly playable on a chapter by chapter basis through usb using the method already described. The only benefit is that it does not have the lagginess you refer to for playing via disc.
