Hey this is really racking my brain, Today my SD card randomly decided to commit suicide and corrupt its self while i was testing gamecube backups. I reset the Wii as normal while a cube game was running and then the memory card was completely dead and just prompted in windows for me to format, so with much reluctance I formatted it. I then had a backup of my old 512MB SD card which i copied the content onto my 16GB card (the problematic one) This 512MB was what i originally installed and had USB loader running from and working fine. So what i did was repeat the same, and copy the 512 SD data onto my newly reformatted 16GB but now USB loader is giving me hell, It takes forever at startup (initializing SD) takes around 30 seconds instead of the previous 2 seconds. It also takes long on (reloading ios 247) It seems USBloader for whatever reason is refusing to access the memory card? none of the settings i change save and all the file paths seem screwed up (usb8:/) where im pretty sure thats suppose to be an SD path as my drive is WBFS. Also when i try to change the paths under custom paths I just get the prompt screen "error" Also the box art downloader does not work just says "cannot create directory usb8:/config/images/etc" Now games run providing i set the settings manually, gamecube games no longer show up obviously as they are on the SD card. I dont understand what has happend here its really confusing me. I have deleted the GlobalCFG file or whatever its titled in the Apps/USBloader folder on the SD card: still the same, I have completely deleted the usb loader directory then reinstalled it: still the same Tryed running from homebrew browser and forwarder. My USB loader was working flawlessly before the SD card raped its self.I had every game i installed from every region working and gamecube working without issue I use CIOS slot 247 Im currently back on USBLoaderGX v3.0 i also have the DOL file for r1208 which i was using and working perfectly fine before SD blowup. I post this in a real hope that User Cyan will reply, as i have been browsing the forum and seen he gives good well written advice, but this problem I feel is quite unique and its really stressing me out. Do problems sometimes occur when changing SD? It was fine when i went from 512mb to 16gb but now its just seemed to have created problems out of nothing. Obviously there was more on the SD card before the format than there is now as i could only restore my older stuff from the 512 backup but USB loader was functioning on that setup and CIOS etc are installed, does DIOS MIOS cause any problems does it install anything to SD card, I assumed all would be fine regarding CIOS DIOS MIOS IOS stuff because they save to the wii not SD. My SD is formatted FAT32 with 32 allocation unit. Should i try and format again? is it possible that something is causing problems with the way i formatted? This is so frustrating because everything was working perfect before. Thanks all help would be hugely appreciated.
