    I originally used FAT32 for my harddrive but when I ran in to this problem someone suggested me to try converting to NTFS and see if the wii games might start working then, but yeah (spoilers) that didn't work.. ^^

    I think only USB Loader-GX works with NTFS if set up correctly. I don't believe CFG USB-Loader will work if it is in NTFS format. Not sure about WiiFlow Lite if it has any NTFS support.

    Use FAT32 format with 32k clusters on a real hard drive and things should go well for you. A lot of the homebrew programs will not work unless they are on a FAT32 formatted drive. So for best compatibility use FAT32.

    I'll get right on it! The thing is, the only reason I did it in the first place was to resolve the first issue, which ended up giving me one more problem. All good tho, im gonna backup my files and try again, I'll check in and report my findings as soon as im done!

    I believe only my version of USB Loader GX has good NTFS support and that's because my NTFS code isn't 8-9 years out of date.

    With CFG Loader r78.11 you might need to make some changes so that Nintendont works like it does in USB Loader GX & WiiFlow.

    I don't know why your HDD works in CFG Loader and it doesn't in USB Loader GX or WiiFlow. But at some point I'd like to get my hands on a known drive that doesn't work with USB Loader GX and WiiFlow so that I can debug the problem.

    Keep it simple... use a Y-USB cable with you hard drive.

    After converting the hard drive to FAT32 (again) both gc & wii games runs perfectly.
    Big shout out to @jeannotte, @blackb0x and @ca032769 for the quick replies and patience!

    cheers! :D
