    So I've got an interesting issue going on with my console.

    I'll preface this thread with saying that I've been successful doing this once already, so I know it's possible. I softmodded a Wii a few months ago, installed the homebrew channel, then put some emulators on the SD card, including Nintendont and USB Loader GX. I partitioned a 2tb USB HDD with one NTFS and one FAT32 partition, put a Wii library on the NTFS partition and a Gamecube library on the FAT32 partition. I was able to successfully play both Wii and Gamecube titles through the respective homebrew apps with both libraries living happily on the same physical disk but on different partitions to appease the emulator apps.

    So fast forward to the fact that my son saw me do this for his cousins on their Wii console and now wants me to do it on my own so he can continue to play Wii titles and play some Gamecube games too. Bear in mind, this is the first console I ever softmodded, and I did the mod work many years ago, so the softmod job is possibly quite shoddy and in need of repair (though I don't know enough about it to effectively troubleshoot on my own). I've set the hard disk up the same way as was done on the console that works. (of course the hard drive's plugged into the correct USB port before anybody asks) The Wii games are on NTFS:/root/wbfs/<game> and then the Gamecube games are on FAT32:/root/games/<game>. Now when I open the Nintendont application, the app doesn't see the hard drive, or at least won't recognize the FAT32 filesystem. When I open the USB Loader GX app, I'm taken to what looks like the normal screen, but then I see all the Gamecube titles (no Wii titles visible, despite an extensive library on this drive) and attempting to play any Gamecube titles fails.

    All the other emulators work, but I just need to get the Wii & GC titles playable on this console. Any help at this point would be appreciated. TIA!!

    Thanks for posting System Check. It looks like your softmod is outdated. I really recommend updating with ModMii. Follow instructions carefully and it should only take 20-30 minutes. Please post after you have done so and I'll try to help out if you are still having problems.

    Also wanted to say having HDD partitioned NTFS/FAT32 the way you have it adds nothing. I really suggest making it all 1 partition using FAT32.

    Thanks for lookin over that. I had a feeling it may be the older softmod patches that could be contributing to the problem. Believe it or not, ModMii might be a small problem since it's made for Windows and I actually have all Linux machines in my house right now. If there's a Linux alternative or variant of ModMii, I'm all ears. Until then I'll have to wait till I go back to my office (workin remote due to covid) before I can work on a windows PC. Thanks for the direction though. I'm going to try that out first chance I get.

    RunningSnakes, you magnificent bastard. I'd rather throw this out in open forum to give you public props than PM, but dude....THANK YOU. Anybody who takes time out of their day to read through as much BS as I've posted and provide viable solutions deserves to be called out like this.

    Between the files you pointed me to so I could update all my outdated patches/WADs and the updated/current versions of the homebrew apps that you showed me, my console with the super-old mod job has been updated and my 7 yr old is happily playing GameCube ROMs from the attached hard disk. I need to find another N64 emulator apparently, cause Wii64 seems to be a bit choppy, but it's pretty clear that the hard part is done and it's all downhill from here. I can't thank you enough, as now I have a "gold standard" for the other Wii consoles in my house, and they'll be updated to this standard as soon as I can get the SD card out of this console (ie, when I can tear my son away from it, which I'm in no hurry to do).

    You rock dude!!
