Well not to double post, but I figured out my problem. I set up the USB drive on a Windows XP machine, the current pc I'm on is Windows 7.
Apparently there is some sort of an issue where Windows 7 will not allow you to delete partitions on USB drives, looking up several work arounds I finally got the USB drive to unallocated status.
Problem is fixed.

OK, so I will admit that I'm using a HDD that's not on the list, its a sandisk cruiser 32 GB flash drive, and perhaps that's my issue.
The USB loaders see my drive just fine, and when I initiate a install it starts up just fine, but then after 30MB it freezes, doesn't matter what game, or which loader, so I think it's either the drive that I'm using, or a setting somewhere that just isn't correct. Any ideas?

Have you tried with many different game discs? When the installing speed drastically decreases it usually means that the disc is scratched, stained or damaged in some way.
I know this is stupid, but did you make sure there was enough space on the flash drive?

I gave up
It was a completely empty flash, I gave up and formated to wbfs and its working fine.

Being a total noob here, I have a SimpleTech 160gb "java" flavored USB Hard Drive, the only options it gives under Windows Formating the drive is either exFat or NTSC.
The Simple Tech drive was showing ONE gamecube game in the USB Loader GX page, but no Wii Games. I have a PNY USB Thumb Drive 8gb, that hasn't given any problems (shows both kinds of games) and works just fine with USB Loader GX. I tried to just move the files I have for the USB stick over to the portable HDD, but now GX doesn't even show it. I figured I'd just try to format it and be done with it.
So my question is this, will EaseUS Partition mess up my PC since it requires that my system reboot in order to complete the format? I'm leery about doing it because for some reason I'm afraid that it will do something fatal to the computer.
Has anybody else been required to restart their PC in order to do this? I'm sure it's a silly question, but it wasn't stated in this FAT32 guide (it is also my first time using this program).

I never had to restart my PC for any type of formatting that didn't involve the system drive. Are you sure you are selecting the right drive? With EaseUS Partition Master you want to right click on the drive you want to format, select format, select your options (Disk Label, FAT32, 32KB Cluster), click ok and then on apply in the upper left toolbar (double check everything before you click apply). You should be good to go once the formatting is done.

Yes! I have followed the guide to the T on its instructions, but it still says I have to restart the computer in order to do the task. This isn't making any sense to me. Now, after installing the EaseUS software, I haven't restarted the PC, maybe I'm supposed to? I don't know why it wants me to do this, I may try a different program or just stick with a larger USB thumb drive (64gb maybe?)

Is it asking you to restart or suggesting that you restart for your system to recognize the changes?
