    Usb loader gx wont detect my usb drive

    So when i got into the loading screen of the usb loader gx, I forgot what it says but i think it says: Loading HDD: 10, then it counts down. I think it cant recognize my usb.
    What might be the problem?

    A lot could be wrong. Is your drive on our Compatibility List?

    What format is your drive?

    Brand of drive: Umm...the make and model on its enclosure. Format: If using a windows based machine go to My Computer, right click on the drive and go down to properties. When that opens somewhere it will say the File System type.

    Make sure the drive is free from any bloatware partitions and is set to primary and active - Google a program called EaseUS if you need to. All games go into the WBFS folder on the root of the drive.

    Post a syscheck in a spoiler. Also, what version of GX are you using?

    Is it necessary to do a system check?

    Entirely up to you. Reason I am asking is to see what versions of cIOS are in your wii. Older versions do not support fat32 loading. I cant vulcan mind meld with your wii to find out whats in there. (sorry odd I had to steal that one ) Also, you haven't stated whether or not your drive is set as primary and active, has the proper file structure, and if bloatware partitions are non-existent.

    You asked for help, and we are more than willing to assist. However if you cannot answer or respond to the questions we ask, why even ask for help in the first place? Some of the work has to fall on you as the end user. There is no such thing as a "magical answer".
