    So I finally successfully installed Homebrew Channel on vWii and installed Cios D2x using THIS GUIDE

    So now I'm having issues with loading a game from Wiiflow. I just recently bought a Y cable for my HDD and now it can read the game from my HDD and display it on Wiiflow. But when I load it, it just gives me a black screen. I'm pretty sure it's not my HDD that's giving me the problem, it has enough power to be powered up now.

    What can be the problem?

    Load the game and walk away for 10 minutes. It takes time for Wiiflow to read/load the game. If you're using a normal HDD, that would be even slower. So let it go, come back in 20 minutes

    If it taking that long to load games you have some serious problems.

    How many games do you have? Do they all have the same problem? Do you have any sound?

    If it's a PAL game you need to force video modes to NTSC.

    I was loading from a USB thumb drive NTFS formatted, about 5 games. I've since switched to a HDD and it's much faster from the HDD. Also NTFS. Which makes no sense since thumb = flash memory but oh well.

    If the games are loading (no matter how long it takes), the storage media is the culprit. If games not loading at all, then you are using the "wrong USB port". On my original Wii and vWii, one USB port will work with WiiFlow and the other causes the system to freeze upon loading a game.

    you might want to try going into the options, second page, startup options and enable force cios load. Some problematic hdds can be fixed that way.
