    So the drive is formatted to Fat32?

    If so then it NEEDS to be formatted to WBFS.
    You can easily do so with WBFS Manager.

    Then put a game on it, using WBFS Manager.

    If that was the answer don't forget to say thanks!

    Follow the fat32 loading guide, link is in the spoiler below. Make sure you have your softmod up to date with the softmod any wii guide.

    @wellington2k - WBFS is not needed anymore and is outdated. fat32 is the recommended USB setup.
