I’m new to this site and modding the Wii, but after hours of reading tutorials and following old advice that lead me nowhere, I’ve come here to ask. It seems many have an issue with USB loaders freezing when they try to detect a drive. This is a problem, but if I leave it unplugged when I boot the USB loader (GX specifically) and then select the part that says uninitialized, it reads the drive and my games show up. Supposedly this is a modded version that can also read GameCube games, but they don’t show up here or in nintendont.
So, tl;dr: USB loader freezes during usb initialization but works if I start it with the drive unplugged and plug it in after, and nothing detects GameCube games. Could anyone help me with these issues?

I don't think you need a modded version for gc support. post a syscheck. the problem might also be the drive you're using. I suspect that considering nintendont doesn't work.

Hello,

Can you post a syscheck report, please, following this guide ==>https://gbatemp.net/threads/posting-a-system-check.300279/

What is your USB support (usb key, external hard drive) ??

what is the version of your usb loader gx ??

You can test with other loaders ==> Wiiflow or Configurable loader v70.

RECOMMEND ==> external hard drive in FAT 32.

USB keys often give a black screen or do not start.

Is your USB Device an USB Stick/Flash Drive/Pen Drive/Thumb Drive ?
How is it formatted please ?
Is it plugged into Port 0 please ?
