USB loading, not working (was working)
First off, I'm new to this, so informational tips are very welcome.
I managed to get a WBFS formatter and successfully made a partition and placed 2 games on it (Sup Mario Bros Wii and Resident Evil 4). Played them both, they worked. I was using NeoGamma R9 beta 26, booting from USB. it was a 20 Gb partition
The ONLY thing I changed was I removed another partition on that same disk, made the entire disk (75Gb ) a single partition, formatted to WBFS, and put the 2 games back on it.
Now NeoGamma does not mount at all.
I have CFG USB Loader available in my Homebrew channel (I have a Configurable USB Loader channel too, but that doesn't work, just reboots my machine), so I tried that out. It gets farther, apparently reading the partition, showing me I have those 2 games on it, and it downloaded the images for me, but when I try to launch a game, it freezes/crashes. it is Configurable USB Loader, version 69(release) coder: oggzee, usptactical, gannon. The last message I get is "[+] Booting Wii game, please wait... IOS(249)" and it just sits there.
Other stuff about my system: had System 4.2 before modding it yesterday. Not sure what other info will be helpful, so ask questions if you want - but please also tell me how to find the info you want, like if you need versions of such and such cIOS please tell me where to go to get that info.
**** update ***
I just realized that configurable usb loader allows me to switch between different IOS to use, and after experimenting with a few, 222 is able to run RE 4
still curious why it didn't work using the NeoGamma, as it worked before.

What mod guide did you use? Also, did you make sure your wbfs partition was set to primary and active?
not sure how/if I can make the partition primary/active, since it's not a partition Windows recognizes. at least can't use windows tools to do so. but that is an interesting point. the first time I ran the process, I did make a FAT partition, made it primary and active before converting it to WBFS, so that may be a difference in this second time.
I used Best Free Partition Manager Freeware for Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP 32 bit & 64 bit. MiniTool Free Partition Manager Software Home Edition. partition wizard to make the partitions. I will try to make the WBFS partition active and primary.
I used WBFS Manager wbfs manager 3.0 to format the wbfs partition.
here is the softmod guide I used:
awesome. I used the partition program to set the partition as primary and active and now neogamma works again. that was exactly the problem.

WBFS format is now pretty much obsolete. You can use fat32 or ntfs with the latest versions of your cIOS and loaders. I would recommend fat32, as it allows you to run your homebrew from it as well. Guide here: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...g-playing.html

ok, thanks. I like the idea of using a fat32 partition, and even better ntfs, so I can use windows natively to add to the drive or use it for other things.
thanks AGAIN. I found another Wii Backup manager that uses FAT32 (couldn't get things working with NTFS, but that's fine).
