    ios58 for emulator issue

    Hello, long time reader first time writer. I've searched and searched for the answer to my issue but now have to post a thread asking directly. If this information is available elsewhere please let me know.

    I'm running a soft-modded 4.2u launch wii. The external is a LaCie d2 1 TB External hard drive with a 500g FAT32 partition/logical drive which I use with wiiflow and usb loader gx with no problems whatsoever (assume these loaders use ios 202 to load off the usb, which I hear is becoming an outdated ios due to the new ios58 available in 4.3. Also, I am running HBC 1.0.8

    I'm trying to get emulators working on my wii (specifically all the latest "GX" emulators) and read that ios58 is required for the emulators to be able to read off of a usb hdd. I downloaded and packed into WAD ios58 with NUS Downloader, and used Wad manager 1.7 to install said WAD. Running sysCheck I see that indeed the ios is installed, with no modifications. I load an emulator and when I go into the settings to change so it will load off of USB it says "USB drive not found". I've tried reinstalling the ios58 and still same error.

    Does anyone know if there are compatibility issues with my external hdd? Or do I need to get an ios58 with trucha or another modification?

    I would really appreciate any input you may have on this, as this have been the premiere site for all my wii modding discussions.

    Below is the sysCheck I was referring to above (only tested ios58)

    sysCheck v2.0 by Double_A
    ...runs on IOS58 (rev 6176).

    Region: NTSC-U
    System Menu 4.2 (v481)
    Hollywood v0x11
    Boot2 v4

    Found 247 titles.
    Found 40 IOS on this console. 8 of them are stub.

    IOS58 (rev 6176): No Patches

    Try uninstalling DVDX.. either you have MPlayer with USB support or SNES9X with USB support..

    If I uninstall DVDx, wouldn't that affect my ability to load from DVD loader (Neogamma, GC Backups)? I would rather have that compatibility than the USB emulator. Also I install into wiiflow from the dvd. If I can't have the "best of both worlds" then I will give up on emulation. Thanks for the option fox.

    DVDx is immaterial to things now. IOS 58 is utilized in the latest HackMii for USB 2.0. Your issue has nothing to do with this. Disc backup launchers typically use IOS 249 or 222 (or their alternates 250/223, but you get the idea). Post a full SysCheck, please.

    I was having a problem with IOS58 where I was trying to install the new FCEUX channel, and it kept saying that it needed IOS58 installed first. I had already installed it using the ios58 installer (and then again installed using the IOS58-64-v6176.wad), and my syschecker came back the same as yours did. I then saw that the Homebrew channel 1.0.8 wasn't using IOS58, so i downloaded the hackmii installer, ran it from within the homebrew channel, uninstalled the Homebrew channel and re-installed it and everything is working fine now!! Not sure if it was because I "auto-updated" the homebrew channel, or had an ios overwritten by another app. But that the did the trick for me! And DVDx is still installed on my system.

    I have heard that the ios needs to be installed first so that the HBC can acknowledge and use it, but was uncertain about this.

    Thank you for all the very useful information. I checked and indeed it was the same issue you were having. It was still using the old IOS. Most likely because I installed ios58 AFTER installing HBC. So reinstalling it switched HBC to ios58 and now I can load the USB hdd through the emulator.

    Unfortunetly, whenever I try to change settings, or load a ROM, I get a stack dump error. But at least the issue in this thread is solved, on to the next thing!

    Thanks again
