    Wii won't recognize flash drive

    I have a Lexar JD Firefly usb device, and my wii won't recognize it. When I use a different flash drive, it works. But i have to use the Lexar one because it's where my games will fit. Is there anyway I can fix this?

    Well, you could use your SD card for the loader and see whether the loader can detect the drive. You could also try giving it another format.

    I would use Gparted. It is a live cd (meaning you can boot from it). I would try formatting to FAT32 first. If that doesn't work, format it to NTFS (you will need to install the usb loader as a channel though). If that doesn't work, you can use wii game manager to format it to wbfs.
