Skylandes giants using usb loader portal can not connect?
I backed up skylanders giants and trying to rub the gane using usb loader as it is a iso image. Game starts but portal does not get recognized? Are there special settings in the usb loader to get it to work? Gets recognized from the retail cd?
Yes. The special settings are: you need to set it to load using a special ios -cIOS247  d2x-v7 to be exact. Assuming you have used the softmod any wii guide, you will already have this ios installed. If you run the retail cd from the normal disc channel it should work - but I believe using the loader and ios 247 will just point the game to the second usb port on the wii (the upper one).
Check out this guide....it will tell you all you need to know: SKYLANDERS GUIDE - including how to install the ios if you haven't used the softmod any wii guide.
Post back and let me know that it works. Good luck.
EDIT: I believe it will only work with USB Loader GX and Configurable USB Loader because I don't think that wiiflow allows you to use a special ios (I am unsure of that though). Best bet is to use what the guide tells youto.
great thanks guys i got it working, i used the 2nd method described in the above link to update my cios to the d2x and used ios 247 with cfg usb loader.

weird indeed, before this i had the portal issue. which was rectified, and now this.
any suggestions welcome..
thank you in advance.
forgot to mention, i recently added a HDMI adapter, not sure if this was the cause but when i the setup back to the RCA *Red, Yellow, White cables - still the same
