    Having a bit of trouble with snesgx using my usb drive. Using Snes9xGX 4.0.5.

    My fat32 partition is set as primary 1. The snes9x directory in the root of the usb drive, but Snes9xGX says "USB drive not found" when I set the load and save options to "USB". It works fine with it set to "SD" or "AUTO".

    The drive is working with the Wii since wadmanager can see and use it and also the usbloader can see and load its configuration and covers from the FAT32 partition.

    Have installed cIOS36 rev10 as IOS249 and cIOS USB2 as IOS202.

    Does this emulator support USB2?

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    Wow, so you end up with no dvdx? That's a tough choice to make.

    Are you using HBC 1.03 and dvdx from hackmii installer 0.2 and then uninstalling dvdx?

    yah i'm using the newest homebrew channel but not that version of dvdx as it doesn't allow for advance install as ios202 which mplayerce uses for usb 2.0. As soon as i uninstall dvdx though everything works fine exccept mplayer is back down to crappy usb 1.1 speed which sometimes causes code dumps from watching movies if it can't read them fast enough.

    The same problem, either you have MPlayer with USB support or SNES9X with USB support. I think more apps should be pointed to 202.

    Tantric I see you =P

    What's the downside of having no install of DVDx?

    I personally don't even use DVDx, its not that big of a loss.. but thats just me. That, and emulation from USB isn't the greatest, USB loads a lot slower than SD and in my case, it is a lot less reliable. My Wii locks up occasionally when booting SNES and GBA.

    And the downside of having no DVDx is just means you can't play DVD movies off your Wii, big whoop. Wii sucks at it anyway.

    then there are no downsides for you [​IMG]

    no DVDX = no support for burned DVD in homebrew
    if you don't need that, you obviously don't need DVDX


    Personally, I prefer storing my favorite roms on DVD rather than having an USB drive permanently hanged to my Wii, it's not like they are going to change very often and 4.7GB of roms to play is more than I will ever play with emulators anyway ^^

    Gambia, The
    i have another problems with snes9x gx 4.0.9 and my usb hdd (my platinum 500GB HDD - 1st. Partition Fat32).

    when I start Snes9x GX it find my usb hdd und load all games. When i play a game for a while (e.g. over 10 minutes) and press Home to go in the Snes9X GX MenĂ¼ - my usb hdd turn off and the emulator says "USB drive not found". The LED of the HDD is out but I hear they are still running. Snes9x GX
    finds it again only if I disconnect it from the usb and reconnect.

    I don't have any Problems when i play Wii Games over USB Loader GX.
    It works flawlessly.

    Is the HDD defective or the emulator's fault?

    Firmware: 4.1E
    cIOS: rev. 14
    Snes9x GX: 4.0.9
    HDD: my Platinum 500GB 2,5'' external HDD. (without power supply, power over usb -
    no Y cable)

    Can anyone help me?
