Thread: WiiFlow "disc_setUSB failed" w/ 4.3u

    Ca WiiFlow "disc_setUSB failed" w/ 4.3u

    Alright, I've resisted and resisted to post this on the forums, only because I hope it hasn't been previously posted. I don't want to be the noob who comes out and posts a question that's found on the forums, but alas, I can't find the answer...

    I've softmodded using Mauifrog's "Softmod Any Wii" guide and the Smash Stack exploit. I've installed WiiFlow 2.2 249. MOST of my games seem to be working okay, but a handful aren't.

    New Super Mario Bros.
    Kirby Epic Yarn
    Mario Kart
    (perhaps a couple more, I haven't tried all of my games since I've started ripping them)

    These select few titles specifically have been coming up with the error "disc_setUSB failed" when I try to launch them. Guitar Hero 6, just makes the screen go black when I launch it.

    Then finally, on a side note, is it normal that WiiFlow freezes occasionally when I try to boot it up. (20-30% of the time) I have to force restart.

    Sorry to be a thorn in the side with all of these questions, but I'd appreciate any direction. No guides seem to address this problem for only a few of the games on the HDD. Generally people encountering the error appear to have it across the whole drive.

    Thanks for the help!

    There are a number of situations where that error message pops up: using an older cIOS with either a FAT32 or NTFS formatted HDD, running the games from either FAT32 or NTFS but with a multiple partition HDD, some versions of WiiFlow were a bit prone to the this intermittent problem, and of course, the HDD might not be compatible enough. Not enough info to drill down to a best guess here. Try using another USB Loader-try a recent version of configureable USB Loader and see if both problems resolve. Expeiment with loadinga problem game rip from a different IOS such as 224 for example.

    Check the USB Drive compatibility list here to see if your HDD is compatible. If it's been awhile since you softmodded - FAT32 and NTFS formatted HDDs need cIOS rev 17 - check the appropriate HDD guide on this site to see current recommendations. and of course clean those darn game discs to try and reinstall-you need to uninstall before reinstalling.

    As you can see that USB dis error is not very specific. Good luck.

    Thanks for the tips. I'll give another USB loader a shot and let you know how that goes.

    I only soft-modded last week assuming that Mauifrog's "soft-mod any wii" guide was up to date. Am I wrong?

    Her's a noob-master question for you... How do I properly load a different cIOS. I have MMM as my manager, and there is an IOS loading feature. Is this where I load it from or do I do it under the individual game settings in Wii flow?

    Noobishly yours,

    If you followed maui's guide last week you are up to date with everything.

    Those games you listed can be found here:
    They need "special" attention..

    and you can change your IOS the specific game runs off of in wiiflow..

    FYI I use CFG v60 222-mload and all those games are flawless on my system.. the CFG is a little older but it works great! no issues. check out this guide:
    [SPOILER= Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here]Shift_Lock On Forum Issues - Vol. 1

    First I would like to state that this is one persons point of view. It does not reflect this site ( or any other staff/mod/or admin here. It is solely mine. Now even though a few may have similar points of view this should be taken as one person’s opinion. Also. This DOES NOT reflect all users and noobs here.. Just a select few personality types that pop in time to time. Let’s get started!

    [SPOILER="Outlook On Forum Rules "]Now I realize many of you did not even read the rules and just agreed to them.. Kind of like signing a legal contract without reading the clause that states you just sold your life away… It happens... When it does, YOU are still responsible and held liable for your actions. No matter how much you think its BS... It’s still on you. I for one am among those who did just that when I signed up here... (Shame on me I know) I to did not read them immediately (however I did speed through it to get a general idea)... I was quickly referred to them a few times do to not being thorough enough with “speed reading”...

    [SPOILER="Why we have rules on this site"]The rules here at wiihacks are here for a few key reasons. I’m only going to hit a few.

    Conduct - We know it’s the net, and there are a lot of internet gangsters/bully’s/and plain jack ass’s... We don’t like that here. The ways users conduct themselves reflect the site... We want user to enjoy coming here but respect in general is needed. Flaming and such results in infractions/bans so don’t do it.

    Piracy – This is a big one here, and no one seems to understand... First of all IT IS AGAINST THE RULES OF THE SITE! Which every last one of you members had to agree to follow prior to being a member here. Copyright laws vary from place to place so they are different for others. But we have to follow our copy rights here to protect our site. We DO NOT support piracy and will not assist in it. We don’t want to lose our wonderful site that you as a user come to, to find help. Big brother (the government) and big “N” (Nintendo) may be watching along with a vast amount of other private sectors looking to stop the pirating of copy righted material. Shutting down sites that support it are somewhere at the top of the list to reduce this.

    Personally, I don’t care what you do... I don’t care what your online habits are or how much porn/software/media you download every day. It’s your computer and your life. YOU are responsible for anything that may occur from that. Users who lack a way with words to express themselves in what they are trying to do may get wrongly accused of being a pirate and these things occur: warnings/infractions/bans/threads closed/YouTube videos of dancing pirates/ and many many possible pictures pointing you out.

    We as staff here are obligated to abide by and enforce forum rules. Whether we believe their valid or not. They are in place to protect the site and members of our community. I won’t allow a poor decision result in losing this site.

    Cheating – Play Fair... I support it... Nothing I hate more than losing to a cheater... If I lose I want it to be because the other person was actually better. Cheating takes the fun out of the game... Why make it easier? Do you suck that bad at it? Don’t like the challenge? GET A DIFFERENT GAME! We don’t support cheats here. Users will not be given help on how to become invincible or walk through walls... you want god mode? Unlimited ammo? Go Google it somewhere else. Don’t ask about it here.[/SPOILER]

    There are a lot of users/members that say “this is wiihacks wtf?” or "that’s the point in hacking a Wii”... No it is not….. We assist users in backing up their legally purchased games so they don’t get ruined in the future (we know how kids are)... Before backups I had bought 3 Mario karts! Ridiculous… Anyways, it also allows us to fully enjoy the console and the convenience that some mods add to the system. We make it custom and set it up the way we like it. Kind of like your pc. A lot of users buy the Wii just so they can do that! I will ban anyone who tries to argue that point... Dont be ignorant... [/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “So you Think You’re a Hacker”]Warning: Spoiler below is a rant. [SPOILER= "Shift_Lock's Rant about the tough guys"]Really guy? We are “Modder’s” at best... most users aren’t even that. A hacker would shut down this site with a single code line… Not sit here claiming he’s one arguing about rules and why he needed help... I’m not saying we don’t have members that are real “hackers” but face it... You aren’t one of them... Coders and developers are fantastic people that make all this possible. And some of those guys truly are considered hackers at some level. Now, could they hack the pentagon? Probably not, but maybe. Who knows... lol

    The point of this is for those of you that come on here thinkin you’re hot [nice word]... If you were a hacker you wouldn’t need our help and wouldn’t need to hide behind a proxy or redirect to post your nonsense… Get over yourself and just follow our guides. If you can’t “hack” a Wii, what can you do? Can you hit the logout button? Try It! How about facing your fail and going back to the guides to read some more… Leave the “hacking” to the REAL hackers out there. /end rant[/SPOILER][/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “Need Help?”] That’s why you’re here right? To get help Modding your Wii. Some users can just navigate the site and never need to post a thing because they can search, read and are on some level tech savvy. Other users need assistance. That’s why we are here... To support and assist those who need the help to mod or to help find solutions to their problems. We like to help… but... We don’t always like to spoon feed arrogant people who demand help or can’t use the search function... If our search is too hard to use there is Google, and if you can’t use Google then you SHOULD NOT mod your Wii...

    We see the same issues every day, same posts, same questions, same answers…. SEARCH FIRST!!! Read a little… Geez people! Too lazy to search for a solution, but can type a wall of text that takes 15 mins to read? C’mon man… step up your game... My spoon hand is getting tired, gonna have to just start [nice word] slapping people with it…

    Don’t be lazy... Help us, help you... If you’re really stuck then we take no issue helping as long as it’s within the lines of the rules... The “grey” area is kind of tough... The staff is here on OUR own time and do not get ANYTHING for being here helping you... We are not paid and don’t see any part of the donations... The donations go strictly to site development. Can you fathom how much it costs to run a site of this level and host the files that we do? Everything costs money... Just not the staff here so remember that the next time you are impatient or lazy... We aren’t getting paid... We are helping because we want to... So keep your cool and dont lose your head... Don’t give us reasons to NOT help you. If you do, well... Then we won’t...[/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= "Mutli Threads, Double Posts and bumping"]Ok.. So It might not bother you but it bugs the crap outta me! It clutters the forum and makes you come off as impatient and ungrateful.

    Mutli threads - Do you really need more then one?? Mods and staff see EVERY POST MADE! You only need one thread for your issue.. Dont create more then that..

    Double posts - You have an "EDIT" button... it will be right under your post to the right.. it will say "EDIT".. say it with me now.. "Eh-d-it" ...... Use IT!!!

    Bumping - If no one has got to you yet there IS a slim chance it was missed.. probably not.. As we answer what we know. so if we dont know, We will leave it for someone else or atleast contact another Staff member for assistance. So WAIT and be PATIENT!You can bumpAFTER 24hrs! and that it!!! I will infract/ban/scold/kick your dog/delete any users who abuse this after warnings....[/SPOILER]
    More to come (without a doubt) so stay tuned for the next edition! Peace I’m out![/SPOILER]

    Thanks for the additional tips Shift_Lock. I was able to get 2 of my games working by just changing the IOS in the game settings to 222 and applying the GECKO crack. Not even sure what that does, but the combo of the two seemed to help.

    In the end though not all of my games were so easily remedied. So I decided to start from fresh and reformat my drive. I was formatted originally as NTSF, but decided to try out WBFS, formatting and partioning first with EASEUS Partition Manager as FAT32. Then loading the FAT32 freshly formatted drive in WiiBackup Manager and formatting as WBFS. All of my problematic games appear now to be working! Even my ISO backups, when loaded and installed poperly through the game manager.

    That appears to be the end to the "disc_setUSB failed" error that I was faced with. I've got a couple other game glitches to sort out, but I'll start a new thread if I can't locate the solutions in the forums. Thanks again for your help!

    Perfect! Thanks Narse. My Guitar Hero Aerosmith was the only game left that I was having a problem with. So under the game settings if I change the IOS to 223 that should fix it? And when you say IOS 37/38 merged, how would I set that for that individual game? Or does it do that automatically when I switch the IOS to be 223 under the game settings in WiiFlow?
