    USB Loader GX "Hangs"

    I recently nodded my Wii to use homebrew and play backups of my games.
    I installed USB Loader GX, all was going well.

    I used a small 4GB USB for the early part of the time. I recently upgraded to a TOSHIBA 500GB External hardrive.

    Here's the problem. When I boot up USB Loader GX, it goes through a few lines and get stuck at 'Intalize USB Device'. No errors, just hangs there.

    The only way to bypass this, is to load USB Loader GX without the hardrive plugged in. Then wait for the countdown, and then mount the drive. Works fine.

    Formatted to WBFS with a 10GB FAT32 partion.
    The USB Loader GX loads from a SD card. Using 4.3.

    Help?

    I've got the same problem, except I can't bypass it like you did by waiting for the countdown and connecting the drive. And my homebrew channel won't even open unless my drive is disconnected/powered off. Keeping an eye on your thread. Hope we can get this resolved.

    It is most likely a compatibility issue. Not all drives work. Test it out with cfg or wiiflow and see if you get the same result.

    Try 're-softmodding' with modmii. It's an easy process. It was the only solution for me. Follow the steps it gives you to re-format your drive to FAT32. Hopefully it works!

    I tried it with WiiMC. Works fine. WiiFlow and CFG both get stuck at the loading screens.

    Already tried re-softmodding... twice. Doesn't change much.
    I tried formatting it to NTFS, no change. FAT32, no change. I'm getting annoyed now.

    I followed two guides on different sites to soft-mod my Wii.
    Is it a good choice to virginize it and then follow the guide on this site?

    It's never a good choice to virginize your Wii. If you need to remod just let it overwrite the existing mod. You probably did it right. Running games from hdd is different than movies and apps. I think its compatibility issue. If you have access to a different hdd or even a usb stick you should see if you can get a loader to work on one of those. That will let you know if the mod is correct, and also help.you figure out if it is your hdd that is the problem.

    I used a 4GB USB as stated above and that worked fine.
    I am happy that I can at least play games. But I really want to get past this error. My Wii is hard to get to, and plugging in the hardrive cord is hard to do.

    So, besides of the obvious choice of buying a new hardrive, is there any other ways to get past this error.

    Did you partition the 4gb USB? When I tried to partition HDDs I got nothing but problems too, like the Wii doesn't know which partition to read first, so I settled on formatting the whole drive to WBSF and using an SD card to load my apps. Have not had any problems loading any USB loader since. That could be why you're getting this problem.
    JUST BOUGHT A WHITE WII U! ID is uglyguy

    Why are you using WBFS file system?
    You should and we do recommend formatting your HDD to Fat32.

    You can see if that helps,but your drive might not be fully compatible.
    Seeing how your Thumb Drive worked ,it's pointing to your HDD not being Fully Compatible.
