    Okay, I tried for days before asking but I just cannot figure this out.

    Why wont USBloaderGX read my usb drive? It will read gamecube games from my SD Card but not wii games from my usb drive.

    I downloaded Cfgloader and Wiiflow, cfg loader will read wii games from my USB but not my SD card and Wiiflow will read from SD and USB but neither will pick up gamecube games.

    USBloader is the nicest loader IMO and id like it to be able to play Wii games but its just not picking them up. Please help :l

    How many partitions does have your USB Drive? How is it formatted (FAT32, WBFS, 32k cluster)? Where are (folder) the games?

    I use WBM for wii games and have the wbfs folder with x game in x folder (which is picked up by wiiflow and CFGloader) Ive used Guiformat to get a FAT32 32k cluster.

    Ok. So, you have a USB device formatted as FAT32 with a folder structure /wbfs/GAMENAME [GAMEID]/GAMEID.wbfs, right? What USB Loader version do you have? Do you use a Fowarder, a Full Channel or load it from Homebrew Channel?

    While loading USB Loader GX, does it give you an error message (about your USB device) or the games just are not accessible?

    Please post the revision number, not "latest" or "up to date." Also, post a syscheck report.

    What is really your issue ? "read my USB drive" is not very useful to know what the problem is.

    HDD not detected AT ALL?
    or HDD detected but no Wii games listed?

    If you enable HDD, do you see the message "no hdd found, falling back to channel mode" ?

    Did you try to go to the Settings>hdd menu>press the first options?
    it will force a HDD remount and partition detection.
    if the partition is detected, but you don't see wii games, go to the 4th icon in the top menu of the main screen, and enable wii games.

    I will try to change that behavior and always keep Wii games selected even if the HDD is not detected once, so next time it's not disabled automatically.

    I have something similar - USBLOader detects my Hard disk, detects the gamecube games on that usb hard disk but stubbornly refuses to see the WII games :)
