If you followed our "Softmod ANY Wii" guide, that sounds like you don't have the SD card in the Wii. The loaders require the SD card to be in the SD slot, as they are looking for the boot.dol in order to actually load your loader (our guide installs forwarders, not true channels).
I do have the SD card in the Wii, however it's an SDHC card, I'm going to change the SD and tell you what happens, thanks you :)

hi could i get some help please,
ive just done the softmode on my 4.1E wii it was well out of date and my old hard disc enclosure stopped working,
ive bought a new 1tb samsung m3 external drive, i put a WBFS partition on it using WBFS manager but it didnt work and after asking here was told it was prob due to my wii being out of date and wbfs manager is now kind of obsolete.
so i did the 'Guide: Softmod ANY Wii' then pluged the m3 drive back in and the games showed up and were playable, but this was still in WBFS partition so i followed this guide as wbfs partition isnt much use for anything else and sounds like its out of date now.
i did exactly what it said in this guide FAT32 but none of the games will show, im using wii back up manager.
i then partitioned the drive in half doing the second half in NTFS games will not show from either FAT32 or NTFS partitions,
i then did a 10gb WBFS partition using the wbfs manager and the wii can see the games.
i dont know if its because theres still old files on the wii but the loaders will only seem to read from a WBFS partition.
change the settings of the usb loader to search for a fat partition and not a wbfs partition
i believe ive already tried this, i will check again
ok so if i go onto wii flow i get to choose usb 1/2 or 3 and sd
no games show on usb 1 and 2 the wbfs partition shows with 3 games on usb 3
and in usb loader gx i can change the hard drive choice from fat32 ntfs and wbfs no matter what choice i make only the 3 games on the wbfs partition show, so even if i choose fat32 only the wbfs partition games show,
i deleted my wbfs and fat32 partitions
and redone this guide from the beginning again i then
loaded one game onto the new fat32 partition connected the drive to the wii which is set up to boot straight into wiiflow and the game shows up first time fine
i think great load the rest of the games onto the fat32 partition put the drive back into the wii again it boots into wiiflow and it just shows the one game i put on there first time around!
i come out of wiiflow and go into usb loader gx all the games show in there, this would be perfectly fine but
my wii being temperamental in that if i set priiloader to boot into usb loader gx then when the wii boots up my tv screen dosent wake, like theres no signal coming from the wii so i have to hold the reset button which takes me into the homebrew channel.
if i change the usb input in wiiflow say from usb 1 too 2 then nothing shows up i just get no games found change partition even if i then change back to usb 1!!
im pulling out what little hair ive got left!
1) Watch the language. We are a family web site.
2) Wiiflow caches the game data. You have to refresh it any time you add new content to the hard drive. The other USB Loaders do not have this issue. Either refresh the cache, or try with another USB loader.
3) Getting priiloader to work with GX is a different beast than getting it to work with others. There are topics on the subject that will explain how, but since I don't use GX, I can't walk you through this process. I use CFG, personally.
so simple when you know how, thanks working now
