USB Loader GX Issues

Hi everyone,

This is my first time modding anything!

Problem 1: I have some Wii games that are listed in USB Loader GX, but when I try to play them, it kicks me back to the Homebrew Channel.

What I've tried so far: I found some older threads with the same topic, but they were years old and pointed to versions that were years old. When I tried to adapt them to my files, I ended up at the point where USB Loader GX didn't even find the games anymore!
I've tried a 32GB flash drive and currently trying a 500Gb portable external.
I've tried moving the USB drives to the other (left) slot - they fail to initialise if I do that so I'm certain the right is the correct one.
I've tried changing the loader to 250. No difference.

Problem 2: The GameCube games are not even listed, even though I'm fairly certain that the files are named correctly, the path is correct and the filter is enabled. Example: Games/Luigi's Mansion [GLME01]/game.iso

What I've tried so far: The files were nkit, so I renamed the extension to iso. Files aren't listed either way. Nintendont is installed.

How I set it up:
USB devices were formatted with EaseUS (Fat32) on Windows 10
General Homebrew stuff from Michael MJD Tutorial on YouTube
Except I used CiOS instructions from
File naming/paths according to Anton Retro Tutorial on YouTube
All game files are a mixture of NTSC and PAL
Region unlock for ALL is set in Priiloader

My Syscheck is below.

Any advice for a novice is very much appreciated! Thanks in advance :)

EDIT: I have just installed WiiFlow and it works with the Wii games! I don't like the interface as much, though, so if I can get USB Loader GX working right, I'd really appreciate the help :)

EDIT2: Re Problem 2. After more googling, I have discovered that nkit and nkit iso are NOT the same, and I need to use software to convert my nkit files to iso. Changing the extension will NOT suffice. I'm putting the GameCube game issue aside for now as it's not #1 priority but I'm leaving the original text here for posterity.

EDIT3: SOLVED! After having to do some work to use WiiGSC to get my games on my homescreen, I noticed that USB Loader GX started playing those games. Long story short, I've "reformatted" my games using Wii Backup Manager and now USB Loader GX can play everything!

    @Bunjolio, I don't really think your sister should be doing those things at a young age. No offense, but its likely possible that she got manipulated online?

    You should tell your parents about this to talk about your sister's safety. She definitely means a lot to your family.
