    I''ve read many things and i can't seem to find out why it doesn't seem to work.

    I have the " d2x-v10-beta53-alt-vWii " on

    IOS 249 - 56
    IOS 250 - 57
    IOS 251 - 58

    I can't seem to get my games to work.

    Usb Loader GX settings says its on r1238

    Using my Toshiba 1TB with WBFS Games onto it. Lemme explain my problem more..

    I go on to USB Loader GX , Click a game to play , As soon as i load it up . It loads to the safety screen ( White Screen with instrutions to strap on wiimote to wrist) After that , It goes black and freezes and i have to reset my Wii U by plugging it out.

    I checked everywhere for information.. Can't seem to find anything. Any Help ? Thanks

    Sounds like your HDD doesnt have enough power. Does it stop spinning? how is it powered? external? y cable?

    I use the standard cable that came with the HDD . I have an original wii & wii U that is both modded . I use the same HDD . Loads fine on the wii with the same d2x v 10 r52 ( Non -vWii) . Loads fine on wii But not Wii U vWii . Im confused .. Is it cuz Wii U requires more power ?

    It's because the Wii U delivers less power from the USB ports. Look up "HDD y-cable", that's what you'll need to solve the problem

    ZXHunter This only applies if your external hdd doesn't have a power plug and is self powered from usb. Only bothered mentioing this because "I use the standard cable that came with the HDD ." is pretty vague, can be misinterpreted (as i may have), and lots of HDDs spin down when not being accessed/used for a period of time (if you happen to let it hooked up when doing other stuff). If it is only a USB cord for the drive, you need to do what Totalinsanity4 said for sure.

    Yeah, sorry, I made the assumption that it was non-powered, because that's typically where the issue lies

    No that's fine, I wasn't trying to cut you off or nothing, just want to make sure he/she understands. :)

    I figured i needed those y-cables last night when reading more information on the Wii U modding Thread. Right after as it mentions the wii games needed to get into the modding ( I've used the Smash Stack) . I've scrolled down and see read this..

    " 4 - Some 2.5" external hard drivers can need additional power supply (even if they were perfectly working in a real Wii); try to use an Y cable to power them up: "

    There was the solution . I indeed needed a Y-Cable . But thanks you guys for the help . I appreciate it :)
