I'm helping my brother softmod his wii. I did everything as with my own wii, following the mauifrog guide here from beginning to end. When I used my own FAT32 16 GB sandisk cruzer USB drive his wii ran games off GX no problem.
When I used the FAT32 guide to step by step format his Lexar 64 GB JumpDrive S50 USB flash drive, GX paused at 'intialize usb' message and hung there for a few mins before giving 'error: usb device not found. switching to channel list mode'
What am I doing wrong here? Is his USB drive not supported in GX? I also tried both usb ports on the wii
Bump... I've tried it with CFG loader and wiiflow too. It won't recognise the usb! on CFG it hangs at the 1st screen 'v70r50 auto' and in wiiflow it gives the message: 'no available usb partition for data no sd card inserted! exiting. When I inserted my sd card it loaded up wiiflow and showed the game which I had on the USB, but when I clicked on play game to launch, it just went to a black screen and froze. I copied it correctly to usb using wiibackup manager as I always do.
