    I purchased a Silicon Power 32GB for my Wii and I just can't seem to get it to recognize it. With Wiiflow, it won't recognize it at all, but on USB Loader GX, it freezes on "Initializing USB Drive". Here's my Syscheck.

    Any help would really be appreciated.

    Edit: I've tried putting the USB Drive when the system was off and I've tried both USB Slots. My Wii works with my other 4GB USB Drive.

    Edit 2: I changed the base IOS on 249/250 to 56/57 to no avail.

    Anyone have any suggestions? I'm trying to run GameCube backups if that makes a difference.

    If d2x version 10 doesn't work, you could try d2x version 10-alternative (beta 53 instead of beta 52).
    It has a different USB initialization process.

    Another stable version is d2x v8, if 10-alt still doesn't work you could try it too.

    Base 56 is the recommended base for USBloaders.
    Base 58 has the better compatibility with USB Devices (but not with games).



    You formated your device to FAT32 or ExFAT? (only FAT32 or NTFS is supported by USBLoaders)
    Try creating the /wbfs/ folder on the root, it could help USBLoaders to detect the partition you want to use with Wii games.


    If you want to play GameCube games, try using DML Booter instead an a multi-function USB Loader.
    It will use the official IOS 58 (it's the most compatible) to mount the USB and list your games, then it will reboot your Wii and DIOS MIOS will take the relay and use its own USB support (which is not the most compatible either) but at least you can see if the problem is the IOS or your device.

    If you can, try another USB device to know if the problem is the flashdrive or your console.

    You can use USBLoaders without HDD, and use SD card + DIOS MIOS Lite for gameCube support.

    Alright, so I tried d2x 10-alt and v8 with both not working for Wiiflow, USB Loader GX, and DML Booter but none seem to do anything but freeze my console or just do nothing. I'm starting to think that the drive just isn't compatible. It's USB 3.0 if that matters.

    Also, the drive is formatted to FAT32 and I only plan on running Gamecube games off of it.

    Edit: I have other USB Drives that work fine. This one just refuses.

    thanks for testing with another drive and reporting it worked.
    It's too bad that the one you bought especially for your gameCube games doesn't work :/

    I don't know if you can do anything about that drive to make it compatible. it's probably the USB to flash interface which require specific commands.
    You should use one of your working device, or try to find a new working one if you want a specific one for your wii.
