    Allllright, I'm on USBLoader GX and I'm trying to load some WBFS wii games. I used the Wii backup manager to convert them, so the file names should be right. They're in a wbfs folder that's on the root of my SD card. I open the GX Loader and click the select title sources tab and see "Wii games" is unchecked. I click it and immediately get the message "USB device not initialized. Switching to channel list mode." What do?

    UPDATE: Tried it on a 8gb flashdrive and it kind of works. It still won't read any wii games on the SD card, but reads the one on the flash drive. I try and play the one on the flash drive, and it kicks me back to the HBC.

    USB Loader GX does not load wii games from SD only USB you will have to use CFG USB Loader or Wiiflow if you want to load your Wii games from SD.

    Alright! Got WIIflow on there now. I see all my wii games, but when I try to open one, I get a quick flash of the wiiflow logo, the Wii U buzzes and burrs, then the wiimote disconnects and I get a permanent black screen.

    Do you have d2x cios's installed? also, wii is very picky when it comes to sd cards, it has to be a regular sd, no micro sd, and SanDisc is the most compatible

    maybe one day I'll change that message to "WARNING : You don't have a cIOS. you need to install a cIOS to play wii games".
    I might change the way the loader is booting (maybe check multiple slots at launch)
    I should set a new working environment to develop that loader again.

    In between space and time.
    Thanks, looking for a Wiiflow alternative.

    if you want an alternative to Wiiflow, but still play games from SD, then you have CFG Loader.
    Maybe even Post loader, but I never tried it so I'm not sure about its capabilities and features.

    I found one but it didn't load games properly, and I somehow managed to dig out an old external hard drive, so...

    oh, for anyone finding this thread because they want SD card support :
    don't use d2x v9 or d2x v10-alt (r53), it's not working with SD.
    some game will not like SD anyway (kirby), so you should still consider an USB device. (not flash drive, I meant USB hdd)
