Wii not playing games from External hard drive
I have a softmodded wii, that I put away for a year, as I never used it. Got it out for the kids, but had formated the ex. hdd, as I needed it for other stuff. Formated the drive with WBFS manager, and transfered games to it, the same way I used to do it. But, for some reason, when I try to load them to play, using configUSB, the just hang there, trying to load. I have done nothing different to the wii, or the sd card. I am using windows 8 X64, and am not sure if that's an issue. I also tried doing a drive for my friend, for his softmodded wii, and he is ahving the same issue.

Your system may need to have the mod updated to be current and/or use current version of USB Loaders. See our Softmod Any Wii Guide for information on both (the mod updates are chapter 2 and the USB loader updates are chapter 3). You'll want to start at chapter 1 to make sure everything is updated.
And we don't recommend using WBFS anymore, FAT32 (is what I prefer) or NTFS formatted hard drives are what's "in". We have guides to both NTFS and FAT32 showing how to fomat the drive and install the games.
