Games/Console Freezing with CFG USBloader
Hey all - First post other than the obligatory introduction one. I've seen this problem asked within other threads/posts but no real answer. Here is my scenario at the moment:
1. 4.3U softmodded (using mauifrog guide)
2. HBC 1.0.8 installed on IOS58 v255.255
3. Priloader installed (disc/internet updates; enable bannerbomb v2 enabled)
4. CFG USBloader ver60-222 using IOS m-load 222
5. Loader ver: 60-222 / IOS250 (r65535) [FRAG] / Base: IOS?? DI:57 mload v1.0
6. HDD = WD My Passport Essential SE (on the working list)
Wii will sometimes recognize HDD, sometimes not. My main problem is that certain games will load, you can play for sometimes 5 minutes, sometimes 2 hours, then the entire HDD/console will freeze, not always black screen, just whatever screen you are on will not change. (Requires reboot - holding the power button for 5 sec). And it isn't just certain games, but any game I have on the HDD. This makes me think that I'm stupid and don't have a softmodding step done correctly, or am I missing something simple? I read 12 pages of SMG2 troubleshooting (that's the game that hangs the most often) and saw a few people with similar problems but no one seemed to respond.
I am willing to start over (if this is possible) but should I do the entire softmod again and reformat the HDD and rerip all the games? I'm thinking this would be extreme, and I must just have some cIOS/IOS not installed correctly since it will work sometimes, other times not.
By the way, these are not downloaded ISO files, but rips from the original store bought games that I still own. I inserted the disc, started CFG USBloader, and ripped from there.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, and if I need to move to another forum/post/thread please let me know (and move me)!
What exactly a YELLOW light on the front of the Wii indicate?
