Seconded. I have the same problem. CFG USB has ben working for the past few months, but lately it started freezing a lot when I would load it. I re-installed all of my homebrew apps and IOS's and such, and now it won't ever load unless I unplug it first and then reload it. I've been looking around on the site for a few days and can't find anything. Also, I tried using USB Loader GX, and it does the same thing. If the USB HDD is plugged in on the initial start, it will freeze on the scree "Waiting for device to initialize". But if I start the loader WITHOUT the HDD plugged in, and wait until it says "waiting for device" and counts down to plug it in, it loads fine.
