I am having trouble getting the forwarder channel to work, I had this working on sd card but now use a USB hdd, I have removed the channel and reinstalled neogammar on the hdd and reinstalled the forwarder channel but the forwarder just resets the wii, is it a bad forwarder? Or can it only be used via a sd card? Note I no longer have the sd card in the wii

Any help would be appreciated.
