Stuck in a cycle! Please help!
I just recently brought a Nintendo Wii because my boyfriend gave me money for our anniversary.
Anyway, I'm not totally new to technology, I've managed to not only unlock and jailbreak my phones, but laptops and other gaming systems as well.
That being said the Wii has been by far the most difficult.
I managed to hack into it all the way. Homebrew's installed correctly. Everything that needed to be softmodded has been done.
However I'm having a problem.
I updated all the programs that came in the original kit, USBLoader GX, etc, and decided after figuring out how to emulate the games to go with the newest version of Wiiflow. 4.1
I attempted to even switch to USB mode on 4.0 and it wouldn't detect them. When 4.1 It detects the USB and the games. (They've been correctly converted or gotten in wbsf form). However here's where I run into the issue.
Everytime I now go to load a game through my external harddrive, (A WD 1 teri EDD) The game detects it and will reset me right back to the Wii menu, not matter what I do. And it's the only program, (Wiiflow) that actually detects the games and mounts the harddrive.
I really don't want to format my HD because it does have data on it for the time being I can't put anywhere else, (movies, etc.) and formatting would delete. It's the basic default NTSF. It's also active and not primary. I thought that Wiiflow was supposed to be able to now work with NTSF hence why I am confused.
I downloaded the required files for Wiiflow through google. However I fear I may have missed something. I have a Black Wii, so it's one of the newer ones. My Homebrew is 4.3 and everything to my knowledge is update and corrected. It's like a huge cycle and none of the other programs even detect the harddrive.
I haven't installed anything extra. The odd part is, if I copy the files on the SD card they work find, however I really don't want to keep having to go out and buy SD cards when I have a USB drive. Can anyone help? Or at least tell me if you can actually save programs onto the Wii, (like if I could save a game onto the Wii itself and launch it so I could delete if from the SD card and then just keep adding games) Any help would do please.
