help with usb loader gx!!!
hi, i dont know if im in the right forum but whatever. my problem is that i play my backed up games through usb hdd. it works on my friends wii but not mine. i have a wd passport 250gb and its in wbfs format. theres a light on it that signals if its reading or not and its blinking which means its not reading. any help? thanks
new problem um apprently maybe my external harddrive isnt gettting enough power to fully operate because i have tried all other systems and it works on them. any help or suggetions to do? isnt there some sort of way to access the external harddrive without connecting it to the wii or is there a way to get more power to go through the wii to external harddrive?

You might try an alternative usb loader, such as neogamma, or install darkcorp and just play via burned backup disks.
Personally, I prefer Darkcorp just because i like to have the disk and you don't have to boot anything to use it.
Otherwise? get a usb stick drive for ten bucks, keep all your games on the big one, and transfer whatever game you want to play to the small one using your computer. If it's not the size that matters, format it and take it back for a refund.
ok. and i figured out the prob. my external just needs more power for it to read. apprently my wii isnt giving off enough MaH on its usb port to fully power the drive. any suggestions like cheaap ones? one i can make homade or can i like hook my wii up to a wall with more power going through it?
and how would you install darkcorp?

You Do Not need Darkcorp!
You need a HDD with External power source.
Never had probs with WD Drives you got it in the right hand USB as you look at wii from the rear ?
I already posted a similar message on FAT 32 thread but no one has responded yet.
My problem that my backup disks would not load with Neogamma.
This is when I run with no SD card - straight from USB HD.
How do I configure Neogamma to run from USB HD?
You mean you have backup disc or the game on USB stick ? You not try soft modding and using hard drive and usbloader GX ? Some very comprehensive guides on here

I am talking about the backup disk.
And I am trying to use Neogamma to load the game.
But in this case all my files (including Neogamma) resides on my USB HD (not on the SD card).
And my SD slot in the Wii is empty.
So... i am looking a way to run Neogamma from my HD.
