    wii64 and wiisx usb error

    this is driving me crazy, please help

    i have no problems using an SD card to load roms with either wii64 or wiisx. but if i copy exactly the same files in the same locations to my usb stick it will open the emulator but then give me a "error opening directory "usb:/wii64/roms" message!

    the usb stick is fine, i use it for apps and movies and wbfs files so why wont it locate the roms in the emulators!?

    Did you configure the emulators to the proper paths on your HDD? If you copied it over from your SD all your paths are saved in your configurations to the SD. If you didn't set the paths to the HDD the emulator is still looking for the files on your SD.

    i dont understand. there isnt anywhere in the emulator to select where it should be looking. apart from after "load rom" where i get the choice of "load from sd" or "load from usb"....surly clicking "load from usb" would tell the emulator to look on the usb?!

    DOH! You're right! On them you select where you want to load the ROMs from. I play with so many emulators I get mixed up sometimes. I remember something about some people having problems with loading from USB with them and they had to use an unofficial mod. It's on here is the emulator section somewhere. Where this thread now is.

    I am currently experiencing the same errors you had off my portable USB drive. It never lets me save the options stuff or load the roms folder from my USB drive at all. And yes, I tried searching through the forums but found nothing on "usb2 mods" or anything of the sort. I have my own thread up and sadly have had no use finding help as of yet. x-x Hoping someone out there reads this and can lend some assistance.
