    Hello,

    I'm on a USB flash drive and usb loader GX only works when it's formatted in WBFS, I've played games without any problems ... But when I formatted it in FAT32, USB loader GX just gave a "device not initiated" error. Still works in other apps when in FAT32 (homebrew, wii64).
    Most of the threads about usb mounting problems seemed to be related to a bad drive or a wrong cios install ...
    I used pimp my wii so did not choose any of the cios, is there anything I should change ?

    USB loader GX r1262

    here is my syscheck :

    Should I try r53 instead of 52 ?
    Next step is to find an HDD instead of flash drive too ...

    thanks for your help

    It is likely the fact that it's a flash drive that's the problem.

    Haha pretty straightforward. I'll get a HDD since my flash drive will not be enough anyway

    thanks
