Sudden USB Loader problems
I'd been running USB loader GX on my Wii (4.2e) for months up until last November when I moved house. I packed away the Wii safely and it stayed in its box for a few months. When I unpacked it and tried to play it, USB loader will not work anymore. As most of you would know, the beauty of this method of playing was that the kids could play the Wii without scratching the discs. Until I get a USB loader working again, I'm really worried about those discs!
I'm at a loss. I definitely didn't do a system update and I'm definitely plugging the HDD into the correct port.
When I try loading it, I get the error messages which tell me to make sure the HDD is plugged into the correct USB port, which it is. Initialy I thought this might mean the HDD got damaged but I've tried a few different USB devices (admittedly all of them were flash drives) and none of them work.
I tried loading Wiiflow and I get the same result i.e no joy.
When I plug in the HDD drive the light comes on, so I know it's getting power from the Wii.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Is there anyway I can check that the USB port is working? I'm beginning to think the USB port got damaged somehow.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
