    So I have been trying to get my friends old wii with usb loader gx that is soft moded to work with downloadable wii games. I know the forwarded method was used. The version of the usb loader gx is 2.1 r1080. Everything is on the sd drive. I have a 8gb SanDisk flash drive, which I got Mariokart wii on it using witgui. It is under the file named "wbfs" which is where I’ve been told it needs to be. The wii states that the usb was initialized when loading the usb loader gx. When I get in, it doesn’t show the amount of free space on the usb drive. I know this because it says there’s only 0.19gb left which is what it said before I even had the game downloaded on the usb. So I know something is wrong but I’m not exactly sure what. And the game did not show up of course. I have done everything and I really need help. Also I tried connecting to the Internet to maybe update it but the wii will not allow me to connect and I have no idea why.

    usb loader gx 2.1 is not old but ANCIENT. I don't even think it can update itself to the latest version with the build-in updater.
    You should run a syscheck log to see if your cios are outdated too.
    You didn't specify if you are using a FAT32 partition or WBFS partition. WBFS partition is outdated too while FAT32 requires the games to be in a specific folder structure. Use WiiBackupManager to tranfer the games to proper folder structure.

    Read the usb loader gx's official thread.

    Thanks for the reply. So would you recommend that I try and adjust with the version that I am using or try and reinstall the new version of usb loader gx? I change my partition on my usb to be FAT32 but the game itself is a WBFS if that makes sense?

    I have been reading through the official thread and was just wondering if there is a specific section for people with macs. It gets awfully confusing when most of what is said about the usb loader is coming from a windows. I also have a windows side on my mac laptop that my brother installed for me. Anybody know if I am able to run it all on my windows side or is there a specific place that can help me with mac.

    why not ask directly in the main thread if you read through it?

    The loader does not need windows, it needs a Wii.
    if you want to copy a game ISO from your computer to the HDD FAT32 used by the loader, there are tools on mac too.

    sorry, I always forgot the name.
    qtgui or something like that.
    There's also wiijmanager.


    also, don't create multiple thread for the same issue.
    I merged your threads together.
    please continue to use it, so users helping you already know what was suggested to you and don't try to help you for something already fixed.

    Just download the latest version of usbloadergx from Cyan's signature and copy the extracted content to sd(or usb):\apps overwriting your previous installation of usbloadergx.

    The game are ok with extension .wbfs just use WiibackupManager with the Windows virtual machine on your Mac or like Cyan suggested use WiijManager. You can do that manually too - if you understand the folder structure requirements.

    I suspect your cios are outdated too, so a syscheck log will be helpful - tutorial on Cyan's signature too.

    Hi Guys,

    I'm sure this is a total noob question, so my apologies to everyone. Everytime I try to load a game from USB Loader GX (I can see the game, download the game art, etc.), it takes me back to the wii menu. I've tried to attack this in like five different ways based on other answers I've read here, but can't get anything to work, and feel like I'm just making my wii a mess by blindly throwing things at it. The SD card is an 8gb HDSC card, which is maybe the issue? It seems based on some posts I've read that this isn't a big deal anymore, but according to older posts, it's a deal breaker. I can run N64 games on the emulator no problem, but the wii back ups don't work at all.

    Below is my sys-check. Any suggestions are hugely appreciated.
