    Well, it always happened with me. When i install a game i can play it, but, after a random time, some games stop working, giving just black screens or returning to Wii Menu. Anyone knows why? ;s
    Using cIOS38 rev12 and latest version of USB Loader GX.
    Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    Could be the hard drive going into sleep mode, because there has been no loading of data for several minutes.

    You didn't get the point, i need to explain it better.
    For exemple, i installed We Rock 1 month ago, and last week when i was trying to play it, it didn't work, giving black screen, so i had to unistall it and reinstall again to get it working. I use a normal computer HD 80gb with an IDE - SATA adapter connected at the energy (to turn it on, duh) and to the first USB port (that's not the problem)

    Sounds like a data corruption problem.

    I know what oyu mean Diazao, i've been getting the same thing, reisntalling it sort of fixes the issue, but Doesn't really, I get code dumps and blank screens, and hang's before it evenloads. its weird. it even hangs on usbloader 1.5 too D:. so it has to be the new Rev12

    I don't think it's about the cIOS, because it happened since i started with USB loading, about rev9?! [​IMG]
    Maybe it can be my HD... It's a Seagate Barracuda 7200.7, and there is a codebar note pasted on it that shows a date that i think it was bought (april 3th 2006 [​IMG])

    It sounds like you're still using an old version of a WBFS app with the delete bug. If so, and you delete a game, then install a larger game, another game in the list will get partially overwritten and corrupted. If this sounds like your problem, and you install via PC, then upgrade to WBFS Manager 3.0. Any games you have that are currently broken will stay broken until reinstalled, but no more games should break. If installing via Wii, then I don't know... GX fixed that issue AGES ago.

    cIOSrev12 also has hd issues, for sure. To be fixed in rev13, hopefully tomorrow.
