    So, I've already installed the Homebrew Channel on my Wii and went through the process of installing WiiFlow, USB Loader GX, and the cfg loader (I think that's the name?). I also placed some Wii backups on a 32 GB SanDisk USB so I can play games through the channel and everything was fine until the USB stopped working. I took it out of my Wii and put it into my computer to find an error message stating that the USB has malfunctioned. This has happened twice now and I don't know what to do. I've tried fixing the USB but that doesn't work so I was just planning to exchange it for a new one at Walmart. Is there a way to fix the USB or at least prevent the new one from malfunctioning again? Thanks in advance.

    Use a HDD. Flash drives are notoriously unreliable with the Wii.

    I used a 400 GB external hard drive before using the USB but that also malfunctioned, not sure what I'm doing wrong. I formatted both the HDD and the USB to FAT32 with a 32 kilobyte allocation size, if that helps.
