So, I've been using a 8GB flash drive to store and play .wbfs files using usb loader gx and I wanted to upgrade to a 32GB flash drive.
I simply copied and pasted the files from the 8GB to the 32GB but, when I try launching the wbfs files, I just get a black screen and I never starts up.
I tried the 8GB flash drive again and it still works just fine.
I've tried using WiiBackupManager and WiiFlow instead of USB loader gx and the flash drive are formatted to FAT32 with 32k allocation. Is there something I'm doing wrong or some step I'm forgetting?

First off, just don't use flash drives. HDDs work a lot better.
Second, get an actual partitioning program, if you don't already have one. Then make sure your flash drive uses the "MBR" formatting system, not "GPT". Then mark it as active. Try again.
