    USB loader issues

    Hi, I have version 4.3U and using USBLoaderGX V2 3.

    The USB loader works for the most part, but whenever I restart a game, re load the loader and start the game up again, the loader stops working.

    It happens right after I click on the disk icon, the screen goes black and the controller shuts down. It works again after several tries, but is this something that I should be concerned about?

    What Hard drive are you using? Is it going into sleep mode? Spin down.

    First answer Spin Down, When a hard drive go's in to sleep mode, Saves energy Saves wear and tear on Discs mechanical parts, Not good for gamers as the last thing you need is data transfer switched off during game play. Not sure if flash drives have this.
    In my experience Flash/Pen/Stick USB drives are a nightmare. First they work then they don't. I have killed many. 8gb only holds a few games anyway. They are ok to practice your settings with. Best success using NTFS format.My personal view is the rate of data transfer, to and from a solid state memory, Gets very hot. Maybe if you buy an expensive top make, But cost is the issue, A 120-160 gb 45.00 portable is a fair price to pay to protect your discs getting scratched. 160gb will hold approx 70 wbfs game files. That's a lot of Cash if you own all the originals. So 160gb is big enough for most family Wii players.
    There are always other opinionss please research and read read read lots.

    So this has nothing to do with the USB loader, and it's the flash drive I'm using.

    I see, thanks.
