    Recently I've tried to set up WiiFlow but nothing I've tried seems to work. I first installed IOS236, then followed to install d2x-v10-beta52 for IOS249 and d2x-v10-beta53alt for IOS250. I am using WiiFlow running through the homebrew channel on an SD card and the games formatted to .wbfs in a /wbfs/ folder on the root of a hard drive formatted to be FAT32. By default, WiiFlow uses IOS249 and cannot detect the hard drive, no matter whether it is in port 0 or 1, with the file explorer displaying sd:/ working fine but usb1:/ as empty. This is the same for IOS250. If I disable forcing cIOS in the main WiiFlow settings, WiiFlow uses IOS58 and detects all games on the hard drive and can read the contents of the drive in file explorer, but attempting to play them always just takes me to the Wii menu. I also tried Configurable USB Loader & USB Loader GX with this setup, but neither could detect the hard drive at all.

    I then tried using ModMii to install all the IOS it recommends, as can be seen in the syscheck log below. I again tried using WiiFlow & Configurable USB Loader that it gave me, running both off the SD card through the homebrew channel, with the same results as before - neither can detect the hard drive at all except for WiiFlow with forcing cIOS off using IOS58, but is then unable to load the games.

    Here is a current syscheck log:

    Have you tried to use d2x cIOS v8, and install base of 56 to 249, and base of 57 installed to 250? Not sure why you would install two different beta versions at the same time.

    Once you get that working, then go ahead and try the beta versions of d2x.

    Yes, as I said, after the beta versions did not work I used the ModMii installer to install d2x-v8 base 56 to 249 and base 47 to 250, as well as some hermes ones to 202, 222 and 223. You can see this in the syscheck log. I had the same results as with the beta d2x for all of them - WiiFlow could not detect the hard drive when using any of them.

    what kind of HDD you using....sounds like it isn't cIOS compatible (especially since it works on IOS58)
    to test, try a different HDD or USB thumbdrive.

    SickPuppy: two different beta d2x is a common (?preferred) setup...r53alt has worse emuNAND compatibility, but is PnP it's common to see 249 r52 for loaders and r53 in other slots for certain games.

    The two hard-drives I have tried are the Seagate SRD00F1 Expansion Portable Drive 1TB (which I think is the same as the STBX1000200 one listed on the compatibility list) & a WD Elements SE Portable 500GB USB 3.0 2,5" (WDBPCK5000ABK-01). Neither seems to have been tested much unfortunately but both have been listed as working with CFG USB loader, specifically with NTFS for the WD one. I've tried this without success and tried all formats (FAT32, NTFS, WBFS) on both hard-drives.

    I hadn't considered it could be a cIOS compatibility issue with the hard drive as I'd thought if it was compatible with IOS58 it should also be with cIOS even though it seemingly isn't. I'll try a USB thumbstick to see if it works any differently for me.
