    Been trying to use USB Loader GX for a more visually aesthetic way to play GameCube games. I have 7-8 games downloaded to a WD 1TB external HDD that I have plugged into port 0 on my Wii.

    I am able to load and play all the games from using the Nintendont app through Homebrew channel but when I choose USB Loader GX from the Wii home menu and try to play the games, it causes my screen to turn black and I must reset my Wii.

    Why am I able to load and play the games using Nintendont but not from USB Loader GX?

    Also, not quite sure the difference between a forwarder or a channel as I’m relatively new to all this, but I did download a “wads” file so the USB Loader GX icon shows up on the Wii home menu and I don’t need to load into the Homebrew channel first.

    I’ve been working on this privately as a gift to my girlfriend and I’ve been able to get everything except this USB Loader GX to work. I would greatly appreciate any help!

    Hello.:)

    First please,we need a little more informations on

    - Nintendont Version (latest HIGHLY recommended)
    - USBLoaderGX Version (latest HIGHLY recommended)

    Usually you don not need configure your USBLoaderGX where NINTENDONT located is.
    Default setting is SD:/apps/nintendont/boot.dol


    Thank you.:)

    Is there any easy way to tell what current version I’m on?

    Also, the tutorial I watched insisted that I needed to change files in the settings of USB Loader GX?

    Thank you.:)

    Did you update your USBLoaderGX manually (recommended) or with it´s Update feature ?
    Is the USBLoader using IOS 58 or 249 ? (you can check it under Settings - loader Settings):
