    USB Loader GX cannot play Wad/Wiiware

    I followed this tutorial http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...ated-nand.html

    Everything works fine, but I ran into a problem (two if you count the extra question). Everytime I try to load a Wiiware or Wad file, it crashes to the homebrew channel. Sometimes the files I've put on the emu nand show weird titles such as "WSBC" or "FAKE" but sometimes have the correct title. Both show the title screen in the preview but then crash. I had tried to get Wiiflow working, and ended up with things freezing as well. I have no idea what to do in regards to fixing this problem.

    If it helps here is my sys check


    Spoiler



    Second minor question is if there is a way to transfer covers into USB loader from Wii Manager image downloads... Of course that is minor compared to the main problem.

    Update: For some reason wads DO run off my SD card (which is rather small though) just not the USB drive... :/ no idea why. I'd like to have it all going from USB, any idea of how to remedy this?

    Thank you all.

    I do not use Gx Loader or any Usb Loader
    I load the wiiware file using a was manger and then save the channel to a SD card for later

    I've never seen a wad display incorrect ID codes, all mine show correctly as do friends who's Wii's I've modded. Which wads specifically have this mismatched ID problem and where did you get them from (Shop Channel or...)?

    Incorrect ID codes? Hmm, this is the weird thing. It seems to show incorrect ID codes for all Wads BEFORE the final wad file I put on the NAND. Not sure if it is related or not though.

    I could install them with the Wad manager, but wouldn't that result in a bunch of messy channels on the MAIN nand? I'd rather have it on the USB so I can sort it on the emu nand.

    Seems Wad Manager just won't detect the emu nand on my USB... dunno why.

    You can't install to EmuNAND with things like WiiMod, Wad Manager or Multi-Mod Manager.

    I use uLoader 5.1e, just chuck the wads into usb drive /nand/install, it will suck them in when it first sees them, takes a while, after that will start up, click on fat and you can play these wads.

    I say this as I do this all the time (only issue I have now is that I can't seem to do this with virtual console wads, only wiiware wads)

    Thanks for info guys. I'm mostly confused why it is able to load on the SD but NOT any USB device... I have a few of my VC games so I want to find a way to fix this. But I'm lost
