    I just got myself a new little 8gb flash drive, one that's actually detected by USB loader, and I can't dump anything.
    It'll start fine but once it gets a little ways it just abruptly stops, no error, just stops, the percentage nor the time left changes.
    Now unless by some God awful chance my thumb drive has a limit on how long it can be accessed at once then I don't see what the problem could be.
    The timing before the freeze is inconsistent, once it got up to 27% once 14% and once 18%, I'm just so pissed right now I'm thinking of giving up on it for good.

    Someone please just help me get this working properly, I'm using the latest 1.5 usb loader because 1.4 was dumping EXTREMELY slowly so maybe the slowness was an indication on access speed?

    gaaahhh!

    try 1.1 for dumping. it was faster than all newer versions. Then use 1.5 to play/delete stuff if needed.

    But wouldn't it have less stability?
    And besides I don't think it can be faster than 5 minutes for Zelda >_>

    Stability wise its fine. games install just fine from it. The only updates wanikoko made was fixing the deletion bug (Just don't use 1.1 to delete), compatibility with playing some games, cover display, and other MINOR updates. If you install with 1.1, it will play fine on newer ones, as long as the game is compatible.

    Instead of debating this, just go try it, whats the harm? it either works for you or doesn't, not like it can do permanent damage.

    The ultimate loader v. 1.1 does not have the remove game bug, it has been fixed. So you could use that. The last release v 7.2 or something works great. I have not tried v1.5 yet.

    Try taking your wiimote out of the room when you start dumping.

    My one always freezes the first time i attempt to dump a game however (im using V1.1 with an 8GB Kingston DataTraveler) the second time it works and i have found it helps it significantly if the usb drive is not all clustered up behind the wii if it starts to get mildly hot it slows down or stops working.
    I flip my wii around when dumping the games little simple things like that couild get it working

    *edit*
    It could easily be the flash drive i have never heard of duracell making these so it could very well be that
    hope you get it working

    You don't have your internet set to wired by any chance do you? I had the same problem, but it went away when I switched from wired to wireless (or even off, just not wired.)

    It is the USB Drive, i have a Kingston Datatraveler 4GB flash drive that does the same thing. Even on Windows WBFS GUI's it would crash. [​IMG]

    I could never dump games from my discs with USB Loader, tried it with 1.1 back when i first installed USB Loader and out of all the games I tried only Deadly Creatures copied over and that took ages to install.

    I didn't read your entire post, but I STRONGLY suggest you only install games from your PC to the WBFS formatted flash or hard drives.
    Also 8GB isn't enough, 16 sorta is and 32 would be perfect, but 8 aint [​IMG]

    Anything larger than 4.7 GB is good enough as long as it can hold the largest of games i suppose a larger one would be ideal but the best part of the usb loader is the speed of loading screens and cinematics of backup games

    I exchanges the crappy duracell flash drive for an 8gb SDHC card, same price, works great.
    I do have a small glitch where version 1.5 doesn't detect the card's wbfs partition, so I'm just using version 1.4 in the mean time until whatever the next release is, seems to be working fine.

    I also had the same issue but mine was a Sony 4 Gig Flash drive. freeses randomly on the v1.5 loader on on originals and backups. The problem is probability the flash drive ill have to invest in a External hard drive.
