    Is your USB formatted as NTFS or FAT32?

    Are you using the correct slot? (the one closest to the edge)

    Try the WBFS Manager. You can format your hd with the right partition and you can put your ISO files with the program on the hd.

    The WBFS method is not recommended anymore as FAT32 and NTFS methods have been made available.

    I used to use WBFS, but I changed to FAT32 and it is much more convenient.

    I might be wrong,but you have to convert your iso files to WBFS. I use Wii backup manager. search for it .My hard drive is formatted to fat 32.
    the fat 32 allows to at videos and music files

    Correct, that is why I'm asking him if he is using FAT32 or NTFS.

    NTFS allows you to put ISO files on your USB.

    I wasn't aware that you could use USBLoaderGx with a partition other then WBFS, how do I use NTFS or FAT32?, and can I use the same flash drive for games and media?

    So by getting the HD to NTFS or FAT32 can I still use the wbfs and Iso files in the same HD without problems??

    Both of you would do well to read the Fat32 guide. That will answer all of your questions on how to format and play your games.

    Thanks for helping me out, cjizzle!

    Guys, do what cjizzle said, you should be fine as long as you follow that guide.

    @Chris yes, you can use your FAT32 HDD to store other files too
