    i tried getting the one thats in the topic with 3000+ posts but that file wont load for me for some reason. and do you always have to have WAD on your sd card? where should it be?

    you don't need the wad.The wad installs the loader as a channel that way you dont have to go through the homebrew channel to load the loader.

    If you want it as a channel then install the wad file(goes in the wad folder on your sd card) with wad manager 1.3 or 1.4

    Just find the loader you want and put it in your apps folder on your sd card.

    For usbloader_gx

    sd:apps/usbloader_gx/boot.dol

    Turn on your wii.
    Then put in your sd card and plug in your usb drive.
    Then run homebrew channel.

    You don't have to wait until it tells you to plug it in.

    Then go to USB Loader it will say it needs to reformate the drive after that install a game with the + button..

    if you have anything plugged into other usb port on wii than unplug it, remove all memory and gamecube cards.

    You may have a bad CIOS installed.....blocking the Wii's fun stuff.
    Did you install IOS37..I hope not. it replaces CIOS 36..

    did you install cIOS36 rev 9 or higher? you need that for compatibility for the USB loaders.
