    Hi all
    Just installed uLoader v3.6A and it's working fine. It loads all backups from DVD, but I have a big problem loading them by USB.

    I have an external HDD, an IDE Seagate disk, 160Gb, with an USB powered case. I partitioned it with a 100Gb WBFS. Uloader detects it and load it fine

    Main problem is that it loads games from USB, but after a while (from a few seconds to several minutes), wii's disk slot light start to blink and game freezes. I tried with 2 different games (The Conduit and Ghostubuster). I can pass title screen and begin to play, but it stops

    I've reading a lot, but haven't found right answer. Many people talks about connecting the HDD to PC, run "hdparm" and change disk settings, such sleep and standby times. I think that's noy exactly my problem, because I've noticed that always freezes after a few seconds since last HDD read (HDD case has light and I can see them blink)

    Can you help me, please? searchs results are huge but not very helpful. Just a link to a post or just the answer would be more appretiated than "google it" or RTFM

    Thanks a lot!

    if the game starts, then the loader is not to blame. it is either the IOS, wii, HDD, or ISO. it sounds to me like your HDD is going to sleep.

    I used Neogamma loader, and it works fine, with an USB pendrive with only one partition, but it does not detect WBFS partition from HDD.

    Any other loader would detect several partitions on disk?
