When I try to install a game from my original game disk to my USB flash drive (through Homebrew channel first, and then either Configurable USB Loader, USB Loader GX, or WiiFlow), it reaches a certain percentage and then freezes. It doesn't matter which loader I use, and I have tried formatting the USB flash drive (which is good on the compatibility list) to FAT32, WBFS, and NTFS. None of them work properly.
Excuse my noob-ness but I would greatly appreciate some help with this. I want to be able to put my games (all of them are original game disks) onto an external drive, and run them from there instead of the disks. If I get this working at all I'll probably end up getting/using a bigger drive.
So, an overview:
>My Wii is 'older' and white, it says now in 'Wii settings' that it's version 4.1U but it said 4.3U before modding (Letterbomb worked fine to install Homebrew/Bootmii).
>It's modified by following the entire 'Softmod ANY Wii' guide (Letterbomb) (Homebrew and Bootmii installed, NAND backed up, all checksums verified, all WADs installed successfully, Priiloader installed, and the AppPack on the SD card). I haven't done anything else.
>Configurable USB Loader, USB Loader GX, and WiiFlow will not successfully install games from original discs to my USB (Reaches a certain percentage and then freezes).
>The USB has been formatted as FAT32, WBFS, and NTFS (One at a time, none of them work). The flash drive is a SanDisk Cruzer 8GB.
Thanks in advance... I probably just missed something somewhere. xP

Thanks for responding so soon, by the way. I appreciate it.
Is it only with one game?
I have found when one of my games stops installing at a certain percent, it is because the disc is scratched.

However, I just found/formatted a different drive (WD, 37G I believe) to see if that would fix it, and everything is working properly now! Thanks anyway; I'll just use the old drive for something else, I don't need it to work for this. So the thread can be locked/deleted/what it is you prefer on this site now.
Thats interesting, since the sandisk cruzer was on the compatibility list. Glad you got another drive and it is working though.
If you are up for some experimenting and want to pacify my curiousity.........Try transferring a game to that usb stick from your working drive with wii backup manager, see if the game will play......I am just wondering, thanks.
