    Unhappy homebrew gives me bubbles

    i had a friend softmod my 4.3 U wii and he gave it back to me with homebrew channel, neogamma , usbloader gx and load mii channels....i am not using SD card i read somewhere i can just use USB HDD i have a seagate 500GB expansion pack which i checked the guides and is compatible.....i have no files on my hdd and have partitioned it to fat32(exfat actually) and wbfs partition as the guide in this site instructed.
    My problem now is HOMEBREW gives me bubbles background i c no applications, usbloader gx starts for like 3 seconds then reboots or restarts to system menu ,loadmii gives me an error fat initializing and freezes.....im going practically crazy only neogamma works with discs.....
    do i need an sd card? what apps do i need to have on it at this stage?(after already having the channels)
    do i need to uninstall everything and reinstall? and if so is there anyway around not uninstalling homebrew channel? i tried downloading just the app pack.zip from mauifrogs guide of softmodding and adding them to my fat32 partition hdd but still not working...help plzzzz

    Your HBC is fine (at least it sounds fine). and the bubbles are normal.. It sounds like the USB isnt being picked up. and exfat isnt FaT32 if you want to format it to FAT32 follow the guide in my signature. a full FAT32 hdd is recommended by most because wbfs is kinda out dated (which some will argue) I would reformat the hdd.. do a FULL format not a quick one. also.. I prefer sd loading for the apps.. but thats just me.

    ExFat may be better in a sense when talking about uses for some windows or linux applications but is still limited on os systems that register it. ExFat IS NOT the same as FAT32. and I dont think the wii registers ExFat but im not 100% clear on that..

    Not so much better than newer and the Wii doens't support it anyways so it's a moot point. It's only use is you can use it in place of NTFS on modern Windows OS. Us Linux users can't even stably use it at this point. There is a beta module for Linux exFAT support but it's still fairly unstable to my knowledge. Not that we would want to use it anyways.
