    Hello everyone.

    So I decided to use a 4GB USB Stick for Nintendont and gave it a try.
    For whatever reason, the Wii U's vWii doesn't recognize the USB stick, not in HBC, not in N64 emulator, never...

    On my Wii that's hooked up to a black & white CRT (lol), it works.

    Does vWii even recognize USB sticks at all?
    If so, what do you have to do?

    Thanks in advance.

    Maybe wrong USB port?
    You should use the upper one (when WiiU lays vertically)in the back , this one transfer data. Other ones won'the work.

    vwii has a low power output maybe your flashdrives needs more power if thats the case you would need a y cable.

    I'll try the back of the USB.

    Also my HDD has even a power supply, but was also connected to front USB ports, I'll try the back of the USB when I'm home.
    Thanks.

    Front ports should work with nintendont, or any homebrew using IOS58.

    Yep, I know. Not according to Cyan though. Kappa
    But yeah, thanks!

    Not the HDD. Not sure about the GameCube controller adapter.

    Only when we have fully access to the IOSU, we might have the possibilities to access those ports for custom use.

    The adapter works for Nintendont games, but not for other VC titles. Kind of a bummer since the controllers worked so well on the original Wii for all titles. I imagine with some coding someone could get them to be recognized as a classic controller again through vWii, but may require IOSU as Scarlet mentioned.

    There is a classic controller for the wiimote. I used it all the time for VC games. By the way, those VC wads could brick your vWii. I see people installing them like candy on this forum, and every time they do, they risk bricking their vWii.

    Not if you install them to emuNAND on your external HDD ;). And yeah the classic controller works, but the GC controller is just sooooo nice haha.

    And that is IF you use emuNAND. Even so, some of those dumped VC wads can still brick it.

    Should the front port work for USB Loader GX and Nintendont?

    It works with nintendont, so nintendo mapped all 4 ports in their usb driver.
    If you set IOS58 in other homebrew, it should have the same effect, so you can list front port in USBLoaderGX but you won't be able to play Wii games or EmuNAND from it as it require a cIOS (limited to port 0 or port1)
