    I have two flash drives, one 64GB USB 3.0 and a 4GB USB 2.0. I have tried both with USB Loader GX and the 4gb works perfectly with no problems but the 64gb flash drive begins to load and then gets stuck at "Loading config files". I tried to copy the config files from the 4gb flash drive and it loaded up but it froze at the USB loader GX screen but nothing came up but the white background. I also tried making a folder called config on my flash drive but it still froze at "Loading config files". I would appreciate any help as I really want to play Skyward sword although the disk is scratched.

    some devices have compatibility issues, and flash drives are less compatible than Hard Drives.
    it's possible that your USB3.0 device will never work, but there are things you can try.

    what I understand, you are not using SD card at all, right? everything is on your USB?
    Are you launching the loader from the homebrew channel, or from a USBLoaderGX channel you installed to your system menu?

    using the homebrew channel to list homebrew on USB can usually force a proper drive init, making it work in the loader.
    if you already tried launching from HBC on USB, then let's try something else.

    launch the loader (with the USB2.0 so it doesn't freeze) and go to the settings > loader settings.
    Set the "loader's IOS" to 58.
    exit, and copy these two files to your bigger flash drive:
    /apps/usbloader_gx/GXGlobal.cfg
    /apps/usbloader_gx/meta.xml

    try to launch it now. It should use IOS58 to boot the loader and use that "driver" to mount the USB.

    or if you don't want to do the setting change on one drive and copy to the other, you can try to edit the meta.xml directly on the non working drive.
    you need to edit the meta.xml in a text editor to delete the 2 lines saying "delete to use arguments", then replace --ios=250 with --ios=58

    which one worked?
    using HBC to list USB:/apps/ or using IOS58?
    it could help other users with the same issue.
