Thread: usb stick vs USB HD

  1. #1

    Question usb stick vs USB HD

    I have a PNY mini attache 2Gb and a WD passport Essential 500GB.
    I formated the whole PNY device as wbfs and can use the latest USB Loader GX to play my backup of WiiPlay (party pack). However, now that I try to make the same backup onto my WD passport, it won't play. The screen goes black and then nothging, it just hangs. I have to hold the power button on the Wii to shut it down.
    The passport is formatted as partition 1 wbfs = 468GB
    partition 2 fat32 = 32GB

    I can play some games on the WD like SimAgents and Marble Balance Challenge, which works on both USB devices, but just not WiiPlay, which does work on my flash drive.

    I have system 4.0u
    IOS55,53,38 and 249 installed from this site.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    I use a 500GB WD My Passport Essential also and I've never encountered a problem while trying to load Wii Play.

    Is the version of GX your using revision 792 because I've been experiencing problems with some games which worked flawlessly with older versions.

    Yes I had just updated to USB loader gx r792 when I attached my WD drive. I just updated to 793 and redid a few games and it seems to be working now.
