    No. We won't email you. You want our help, you stay here to do it.

    Have you tried other USB drives? Has this ever worked fine before or is this the first time you tried it?

    Can you post a says check so we can see what your system looks like? (Directions on how to generate and post one is linked in my signature)

    Did you follow out modding guide? Or just coming here asking us to clean up the mess left by some other guide that won't offer support?

    Been a while, but if I recall, ret 1 means that the app could not find the media it was looking for. Ensure that your hdd is configured to disable any sleep/spindown features. Perhaps delete the MP9 wbfs from the hdd. Perhaps remove any config files for the loader and start with a fresh install.

    It was working great before the upload on Mario Party 9 I have alot of games on there that I cannot get to now. I followed everything from maulfrog and it was working great for a few years up until the freeze up. Now the only I can play games is through Disks on the back up drive

    Q. I have formatted the device correctly but I am still getting this error; how would i fix this?
    A. Be sure to have the device hooked up to the Wii before you power it on. You may lack USB support as well. Installing a newer cIOS 249 would clear this up.(cIOS249 [56] d2x-v6)

    Wad Install Error:Most likely you have cIOS installed incorrectly, out of date, or missing.Your SD card is not Formatted as FAT16 or FAT32 properly, reformat it. If a file was needed, then it was not in the correct folder.Each application needs its files in specific folders, so pay attention to that. Can also be a bad wad or not enough space on the Wii. (example: If your installing cios38rev17 offline make sure you have ios38-64-v3867 on the root of your sd)
    Post a system check , Please.

    Thank You.

    @Lakesurfer:

    It wouldn't hurt to do as Jax asked, now would it? He's a veteran of WH and former staffer. How to do this and the program itself can be found here. Ignoring or not responding to llaffer isn't the best thing to do, either. But hey, it's your Wii and your issue so no skin off OUR noses...

    I wasn't ignoring or not responding to anyone on here, Like i said I'm not as bright as you with this whole thing. If you don't want to be of service then don't but I do appreciate everyone else who is helping me on here.

    We want to help, but we won't do it for you. You have to give us the information we request, otherwise we can't help you.

    It's like you calling your mechanic: "My car's not working. Fix it." "What's wrong with it?" "I don't know. I just want it fixed."

    It doesn't work well that way.
