    Anyone? My console still reads discs, USB Loader GX just doesn't offer me to install.

    If it helps, I'm using an NTFS drive on 4.3E.

    I downloaded the latest from their site, shouldn't it work?

    EDIT: I downloaded r938. Isn't that the latest one?

    this is technically a "beta" release, however you'll find it's much more stable than "official" versions. the one on their site range from r800-900 or so, while this one I posted is r1035

    Thanks. I wonder why they don't update their main list.

    Alright, I installed r1035 but on my initial run I got a message about NTFS being unsupported and I'm missing a CIOS or something and continue at your own risk. I just loaded it back up and I didn't get the message, so I can't go into details. What could the risks be and how can I avoid it? I don't know what CIOS it specified.

    And now nothing runs. I'm guessing it's that CIOS that I'm missing.

    they don't update it cause, like i said, they're beta builds. What cIOS are you running? Any cIOS should be supported, and I think cIOSX R17+ supports NTFS drives, it could be R19+ however.

    Oh you'll probably have to go into global settings and reset everything and reselect your settings (including partition)

    I have no idea. I didn't hack my Wii myself, got a friend to. Is there a way I can check?

    just reinstall it

    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=7H22XLRP

    use whatever it gives you for "ios to use for installing other ios" w/e
    use base 37 or base 56 (your choice, pick one)
    use slot 249

    You can always reinstall and pick different bases once you understand more about cIOSes

    k the megaupload link will give you the DOL (homebrew aplication) for the Custom IOS Instaler (cIOSX r21)

    Download, extract, make sure it's named boot.dol put it in a folder in your apps folder on your sd card/usb device

    can you do that part?

    So with that CIOS the latest revision of USB Loader GX should work?

    Could it possibly screw anything else up? I'm sorry if I'm being a little paranoid about the whole thing. I don't want it to brick and I screwed up the drive on my Wii the other day.

    Okay I'm just going to answer your question.... You cannot install games from a disc onto a NTFS formatted hard drive, it's not supported because of a compatibilty issue with the loader not being able to write to ntfs drives. If you want to be able to install games from the wii you need to format the drive to fat32 or wbfs of which I would suggest fat32. Yes fat32 can only read 4gb and smaller files but the loader and wii backup manager will automatically split the files to 4gb(yes dual layer games will still work fine, they're just two files now but it doesn't affect how they appear in the loader, it still appears as a single game). There is really no advantage to using ntfs over fat32 unless you're using the drive to store computer files larger than 4gb's each.

    this is wrong. any modern Usb Loader can write to NTFS

    edit: proof - http://code.google.com/p/usbloader-gui/source/detail?r=957

    notice, usb loader gx is now on R1039

    another edit: yeah that build was released 19th of September. you're a little out of the loop [​IMG]
