    Calm down.

    1. Is your "WBFS" folder on the root of the usb HDD? The folder containg the Wii game's .wbfs goes in here.

    USB= root ->
    WBFS folder ->
    WII GAME folder ->
    WII GAME.wbfs


    2. Did you tell the loaders to select the USB instead of the SD Card? You have to go into settings to do this. They default to the SD Card, change it to USB.

    3. It's also important for the game's ID to be in brackets on the Wii Game folder.
    Example: WII GAME [GAMEID]
    You can find your game's ID at https://www.gametdb.com

    If the problem is with WBFS files not being on their correct locations and/or file names being wrong, just use WiiBackupManager and it will put them where they belong and in the correct format naming.

    The configuration recomended by face235 is also something you should check. As it is the main reason that USB loaders might not work correctly.

    Use ModMii and your problems will likely disappear

    I have a crazy idea!

    Take the SD Card out of the Wii, and create a WBFS folder at the root of it. If your SD Card is small, pick one of your smaller Wii games and put it there. Put the SD Card back in the Wii. Go back into loader settings and revert back to SD Card temporarily.

    Your test game should show up. Start it to see if anything changes. Success or failure.

    By the way, did you use ModMii after modding your Wii? It is highly recommended as it will help you get fully updated with all homebrew for the Wii. I believe that might also help you with your conundrum.
