    My god, I am feeling like such a pain in this forum, but can't seem to get anywhere with any avenue!

    I've got a 32GB sd card in a USB converter running my Wii games fine on a WiiU with USB Loader GX. Tried a 'compatible' cruizer 64GB thumb drive, which although loaded the games fine, meant I had to restart the entire system before trying to load another game.

    I decided to buy a compatible SATA HDD with a Y cable, and it's causing problems again. I know I could stick witht he 32GB, but it doesn't hold enough backups.

    I've formatted the drive (Hitachi 2.5" HTS543216L9A300 160GB) as FAT32, and transferred the ISOS using WII Backup Manager without a hitch, but USB loader only shows a few preview images, the rest are blank, and if I tried to scroll to the next page, it crashes and reloads. If I try to load a game from the first screen, it blacks out, then returns to the homebrew channel, and only a handful of games are actually showing the splash screen.

    I've now tried formatting it as NTFS and WBFS then transferring the games as before, but still the same result. I know the USB loader is working correctly, as the 32GB card is working. Can anyone shed some light on what I'm missing out on here please? I've followed a few guides online, but that didn't seem to help. I've got another HDD arriving tomorrow that might make all the difference, but I'd rather know about a checkbox or something that i've missed.

    Once I've got this, I'll be happy! Thanks in advance.

    If it worked with your SD card, and as you said, seems like the software is all set up correctly. It sounds to me like your hard drive / case / cable is causing the issue? Report back once you've got your new HDD and if that solves it?!

    Ok, so I've got the new HDD Seagate Momentus 5400.3 ST9120822AS 120GB SATA 2.5" and still no joy.

    When formatted FAT32 with 32k clusters and transferred using Wii backup manager, some of the game icons will show, the rest are empty squares, and when I click on any of them, it just hangs and I can't do anything more. The remote still works. Wiiflow won't even recognise the drive.

    Tried again with NTFS, and although the games do have icons and gets as far as the splash screen, but starting the game just throws me out to the HBC.

    Again, the thumb drive works fine. I'm going to try getting another sata Y cable tomorrow to rule that out, but I think that's a very slim chance.

    I also forgot to mention that this is all on the vWii, if that makes any difference.

    Any ideas please? Thank you

    Thank you, can I ask how you do either of those or point me to a guide please? I followed the softmod guide word for word with I must admit, not an awful lot of knowledge on what exactly I was doing!

    One other thing I should ask, the hard drives I'm using are on the compatibility list, and I am using an SATA to usb Y cable. Might that be an issue? Should it really be in a caddy and using usb to usb?

    That would be number one on the list. Try a cheap case and see how it works. The SATA to USB connector in the cable may not be compatible with the USB Loader.

    Get a hard drive enclosure, don't bother with Y cables - you need wall power but it will work 100% of the time.

    ur ios/cios look good. I'd do what the others have suggested. I personally have a powered virtual wii hdd and an unpowered (y-cabled) wii u hdd. both work flawlessly. I'm using a WD elements hdd for the wii u (one of the smaller ones btw, so it's fairly new), and a WD Blue hdd for my virtual wii which I just placed in an enclosure (one from sabrent).
