    Confirmed...sorry, but the drive has to be in there. It doesn't necessarily have to be 100% working, but the Wii needs to detect that it is there for you to be able to load any games.

    Thank you. That's what I figured.

    I'm a programmer, but I have no experience with the wii system so I rather consult with the pros before doing anything to it.

    Should I skip step 2 considering that I already have bootmii and the latest HBC already installed?

    Installed using this guide, again... for the umpteenth time. It's an amazing guide and I really appreciate it. The problem I'm having is that WiiFlow will not read my usb drive (WD MyBook 3TB NTFS). I don't want to switch to fat32 because I also have some pretty big backups of things from my computer (>4GB). Is there anyway to fix this? It basically says either load from SD or eventually tried to load from NAND.

    I'm loading the channels from the SD card, the games from the USB HD.


    Should add that it works fine with CFG loader and USB loader GX, but I can't play my Modern Warfare 3 backup on those. It only seems to work with wiiflow.

    Newer USB3 drives are notoriously more problematic w/ the wii, I recommend against them.

I thought it was a software issue so I reinstalled the mod with this guide to the most up-to-date firmware. It didn't help. So I figured it was a drive issue so I ordered a brand new drive and installed it last night. Now the original game will show up in the disc channel icon and I can get to the splash screen but when I click "start" I am still getting the black read error screen. So, I know it's not a drive issue. Does anyone know what is happening or what I need to do to fix this? I really think it is an IOS issue, but not sure. I greatly appreciate any help! Thanks guys!!

    BTW: I am trying to play Disney Universe, if that means anything. And no, I do not have any other games on hand to try.
    Did you install the IOS update pack? Normally it would give a 002 error if you didnt have the right IOS, but just want to make sure.

    I followed every step of this guide, and I must say, im impressed. It worked perfectly until the VERY end... Basically i got all the hard stuff out of the way and now Im having trouble with the simples D: Anyway I have a few questions...
    - I load WiiFlow, and try to install a game. I apparently dont have enough blocks to install the game. Does this mean my USB drive lacks the space, or my Wii does? And if it is my Wii without the space, how can I save the game file to my USB device?
    - How do I get the three USB loaders to run properly? How should my SD card look for each one?
    - Every time I turn on my Wii, I go straight to BootMii, which I get why that happens, but isnt Priiloader supposed to load too or something? It loaded when I completed chapter 2, but then Chapter 3 asks you to format your SD again, did that affect it even if i put the Priiloader app back on my SD? And when I activate Priiloader through HBC I cant change or update any settings.
    - Are ripped games saved as iso files on your USB device?
    - Can I rip GCN games just like Wii games, or is there a different process?

    I just finished using this guide to update my previously softmodded wii that had undergone several iterations (had at various points installed the old waninkoko and hermes cIOSes).

    What I would like to know now is if everything is properly updated and cleaned up.

    Can someone tell me what the current tool(s) of choice are for dumping the full info about all my IOS configurations so that I might post them for confirmation?

    Also, with the newer d2x cIOS is the need for the older Waninkoko and Hermes cIOS totally gone now?

    I had tried using some older tools that I previously used (most notably WAD manager) and they no longer seem to function. I realize that MMM is recommended now, but there are some things that only WAD Manager was capable of.

    thanks!

    Thanks so much for the clarification, actually my wii drive has a missing data cable lock so once I have it I will give it a shot ...
