I recently softmodded my wii following the steps stated here:
and everything seemed to work perfectly (after softmod is 4.1u), but I have recently had big problems with running my backups via USB.
Sometimes when I try to use the USB Loader GX (even without any USB connected)
will give me the error "Exception (DSI) occurred!, Stack Dump, and Code Dump Errors."
When I use USBConfigCFG, USB Loader GX, Wiiflow or NeoGamma, sometimes I get "Exception
(DSI) occurred!, Stack Dump, and Code Dump Errors."
Sometimes when any of the apps load, it will fail to mount and/or freezes.
If it works, it's when the file is in NTFS format and use .ISO backups, then the apps don't detect the content of the HDD
(even though, is able to figure out the HDD's capacity, and how much it has available).
If it works, and I use WBFS Manager 3.0, format the HDD, and transfer the .ISO (converting to WBFS),
sometimes the app crashes, sometimes it succeeds mounting the HDD, and detects the backups on it.
When I'm able to load the USB Loader GX, I cant move the pointer even though it shows up in the middle
of the screen (no matter if I use a normal wiimote or a wiimote with wii motion plus). Meaning I can't
navigate on it, and at some point, it freezes.
When I'm able to load the USBConfigCFG, it detects the backups, but I can't navigate it either, and at
some point, it freezes.
When I'm able to load Wiiflow, it detects the HDD but not the backups.
When I'm able to load NeoGamma, it detects the backups, and it either freezes trying to launch them, or
it succeeds, gives me a green screen for a second, and then it either gives me the first white screen with the controller
warnings and such and then it stops working (black screen), or in one specific case, (Zelda, Skyward Sword) it
starts to show me a video of how to plug the wii motion plus adaptor (Even though I have wiimote with wii motion plus as
1st controller as well as the normal wiimote as 2nd), I couldnt skip the video, and at some point, it freezes.
The only things that work for me right now are:
It plays physical backup copies using NeoGamma or If I use a flash drive (Kingston Datatraveler G2 16GB) with NTFS format, and Install the game to the
flash drive using NeoGamma, the backup created works perfectly. But, if I simply put an .ISO file to the flash drive with NTFS
format, the USB Loaders won't detect it.
Brand: Western Digital My Passport 3.0 500GB
Enclosure: External HDD USB 3.0 with usb 2.0 compatibility
My Wii Serial Number: LU52961687
(1st generation with 3.0u)
Also, When I try to access Homebrew Browser, it loads perfectly (took a while first time) but
then, I can't move (like the wiimote doesn't respond or the app freezes).
I'd like to know what I can do in order to make it work, if I'm doing something wrong, etc.
FAT32 is the recommended format to setup your external USB drive. Follow this guide: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...ide-fat32.html
Also make sure your apps are up to date. If you used the app pack from the softmod any wii guide, they should be the latest stable versions.
