Howdy! I'm new to the whole Wii modding scene, so please bear with me here.
I followed this tutorial (http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html) about a week ago, and everything seemed to go fine. I have a 2006-7 Wii that can read burned DVD's and all that jazz, but after following that tutorial exactly as written, none of the USB loading solutions work.
Ya see, when I start USB Loader GX, for example, it gives me the splash screen as if it was working. However, soon afterward I find myself back at the main system menu following a brief cascading graphic of white Wii logo looking things. I've tried re-installing the app's wads with WiiMod, but that doesn't solve the issue. The same issues are present for WiiFlow and the configurable USB loader. Neogamma also refuses to load from USB, giving me the whole "Retrying 30...29...28...etc" thing.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to maybe fix this issue? How can I tell whether I'm having an issue with my USB HDD or my software? Ever since I heard that CoD Black Ops can break Wii's from constantly reading from the disc, I've been looking for ways to switch over to USB loading.
If there's a way to provide more information on this issue, please let me know in a noob friendly way. Like I said before, I'm a WiiHacks rookie and it's pretty much a miracle that I can run disc backups at all thanks to the guides on this site.
Thanks in advance!
Have you made sure to install the modpack.zip from this header?:
SpoilerChapter 3- The Final Step
Don't forget to do this
Format your sd-card, one last time
ExtractAPP-PACK-V4.zip directly to your sd card.
Boot your wii to the system menu. You will see the following channels installed (none of which will work by the way if you didn't extract this app pack to your sd card):
USB Loader GX - This is a forwarder to Usb Loader GX v3.0 which is now on your SD card. Source HERE.
CFG Loader - This is a forwarder to Configurable USB Loader MOD r35 which is now on your SD card. SourceHERE.
WiiFlow - This is a forwarder to WiiFlow MOD r348, a usb loader, which is now on your SD card. Source HERE.
Neogamma - This is a forwarder to Neogamma R9 Beta 56. It is primarily used to load backups from disc, however it also supports loading from SD/USB. Source HERE, WiiHacks Guide HERE.
Backup HBC- You will see a channel with black water, labeled backup HBC. When you load it, HBC 1.03 is loaded. This is installed as a backup means to run homebrew should you ever need it. You should not use it, unless you need to. Don't uninstall this wad, title "MAUI". Keep it on your wii or save it onto your sd card. You can move it to the far far right of the channel menu or back it up to your pc. You never know, someday you may need it.
If you haven't download and installed the FILE then here are some n00b friendly steps lol.
1) Extract the contents using a file manager to the desktop
2) Move the /apps folder to the root/main window of your SD card.
3) If it asks to overwrite any content, hit "yes" or "ok" or "overwrite" whichever pop up.
4) Try sticking it back in your SD card slot, and running the loaders again
*Note: if that fails, download this package, extract it and follow its walkthrough contents.
Skeptical?Everytime I update u on a post, I download ALL of the files I need to help you install, and head straight to my wii to test them... I put my system at risk to help you out, so if I seem unsure, I'll get there... Don't criticize.
