    Long time no see everyone.

    My old HDD died a while back (was WBFS) and I bought a new one. Formatted this one to NTFS and started throwing the games into the wbfs folder, booted it up and everything looked great. First game I clicked sent me back to the Wii menu (was using the forwarder channel). Tried again from HBC, sent me back to HBC instead. Well I figured it's been a long time since I've updated everything, so I went and used ModMii and did a fresh install of everything, keeping the wii at 4.1, and downloaded version 3.0 of USB Loader GX, as well as got rid of the old config files. Same issue.

    I feel like I've skipped a small but crucial step. Any ideas?

    Edit: NTSC/US Wii btw, if it helps. All games were NTSC U as well.

    Thanks, nice softmod thanks to ModMii of course.
    Try installing GX v3.0 for IOS 249 and get IOS249/250 bases 56/57 v9 beta 47 (using modmii if u wish)
    some people report better HDD detection using D2x9b so good luck
    Abz :)

    Pretty sure thats what im using, but I'll double check. As I said, the HDD is pulling up just fine, pretty fast too, but as soon as I try to launch a game it goes bananas.. Thanks for a start, everything has changed a heck of a lot since I last used this wii.

    your IOS 249 and 250 are v8.0 final, I recommend v9beta49Fix - Modmii page 4 type: "beta" press 1

    My b, I was referring to the USB Loader GX version. Installed the newest beta from the google code page, no change.

    Would 36 make a difference? I ended up testing with launch titles, still nothing. Worst case scenario I'll reformat to FAT32, but im just not going back to WBFS.

    FAT32 has best compatibility
    36 is not the problem here but you can patch it anyway :)

    ^ Yeah, I'm noticing how many other programs only support FAT32. Still kinda bugs me, I need to solve this :P

    Going to try a reformat, 500 GB Fat32. Is there any benefit between 16k clusters and 32k clusters?

    edit: went with 32k, working like a champ. still strange that it wouldn't work under NTFS, but I'm just glad to have it working :P
