    USB Loader

    I have setup my wii with usb loader and as a test i tried to rip a game to an 8gb usb pen but it failed and now the usb pen is write protected under any os but can be read just not formatted or files deleted.
    Under the wii and the file browser homebrew app i can copy/delete etc so the pen is working but no idea whats going on as its not useable with anything else no, can anyone help?

    Thanks

    Try a different device. Make sure the write protect isn't engaged. That's a little bizarre --- is it formatted FAT32 or?

    there is no write protect switch on these usb pens, the device is formatted to fat32, i have tried this pen in 3 different machines plus xbox and ps3 all give same result the pen is write enabled only the wii can write to it, i dont dare risk another pen in the wii till i can get this one write enabled from it.
    I can read the files on it from the pc not a problem just no delete or format etc, its a generic device that we used in where i worked with the company logo on, i can take a pic of it.

    i dont know what you mean by that as i have tried what you said, i have tried the usb pen in various devices and os systems with same results except when its in the wii, i have tried a usb hdd with all my games on it and its fine but its wbfs not a fat32 drive as that was from when i first got my wii.

    What I mean is, it's the process of elimination. It works in the Wii (for writing), but nowhere else. That suggests the issue is with the device. As it works with the Wii, what's the problem then? Some of those pens have a hidden partition/software that may do as you describe (I had one such device). It's either something like that, or a faulty USB pen drive.

    it was working fine on pc, laptop, ps3 before i tried to backup indian jones on the wii at wich point the backup crashed and i had to reset the wii so i am more that certain that its something from either the software or the wii that has locked the pen but no where can i see anything on the wii that gives me anything like that or an attrib to unlock again.

    While it might've become damaged, rest assured the Wii didn't lock it like you're thinking.
