    Looks good. Did you try a different brand thumb drive? It looks like the San Disk Cruzer series (as a whole, considering no models given in the USB Compatibility thread to speak of) works well enough. Did you follow a wiihacks formatting guide (we advocate FAT32 nowadays, or NTFS --- separate guides for both).

    Based strictly on what little I've read in this thread, it almost sounds like an overheating issue (GPU?) but hard to say. The fact you used a different power supply and still had this happen would tend to rule power out as to the issue. There could be other culprits, but I'd prefer to move this to where mauifrog can see it.

    The thumbdrive is FAT32. I think the SD card might be FAT (not FAT32), because I seem to recall the original hacking guide I was following said to format the SD card as regular FAT. Maybe that's the problem...

    Guide says FAT32. For the thumb drive, etc:

    As previously stated, wouldn't hurt to try another one either.

    Hmm, upon further inspection it looks like the internal fan might not be working properly. Not 100% certain, it's a little difficult to see what the fan is doing.

    Just to update: I got a replacement fan for the wii. When I opened it up I took a closer look at the original fan after disconnecting it and it appears it was just jammed somehow. I couldn't exactly tell why, but when I tried to turn the fan with my finger to test it popped before it started to spin. To be on the safe side, I installed the replacement fan and I'll hang on to the original incase I need it in the future. I haven't had the wii die on me since replacing the fan so all seems to be well!
