    USB Loader GX Not finding USB drive

    Hello.

    So I just updated my Wii with the Softmod Any Wii guide (as I posted here http://www.wiihacks.com/software-bac...tml#post666702) yet I still cannot get USB Loader GX (or uLoader) to find the files on my 160 gb USB drive.

    This is how I have it partitioned and have formatted it for WBFS and added a game through the WBFS manager:
    part1.png

    And since I bought the HDD used I double checked the brand part2.png which seems to be listed as compatible.

    WiiMC recognizes drive G for movie files so I'm not sure what the deal is.

    Here's my sys check again

    Spoiler



    Any ideas?

    Here's what you probably should do:
    1) Make sure you're plugged into port 0: [Furthest towards the outside of the wii].

    2) Download this package, and follow it's instructions, it might help us here a little bit.
    3) Double-check your revision of USB Loader GX
    a) Go to the HBC (Homebrew Channel)
    b) Click on USB Loader GX
    c) Look at the top before loading the app
    d) Read that info and post

    So the USB Loader GX version is 3.0 r1180

    I can't run the .bat file on the partition that has been WBFS formatted as far as I know. But this is what it produced when I ran it on the other partition:

    Ok, new approach. Are all of your games in iso format?

    No, the game is in WBFS format and was added via the WiiBackup Manager

    Try a different hard drive if you have one, or even a thumb drive. If you insist on keeping the current configuration and using WBFS Manager, then try this. Make sure your WBFS partition is FIRST formatted to FAT32, marked as primary, then format to wbfs.

    My personal opinion though is to just format the whole HDD to NTFS or FAT32 and use Wii Backup Manager instead of WBFS manager.

    Lightbulb This should do man :)

    If you're never wanting to play GameCube games on a partition formatted in NTFS, then what 11LOBO11 said is true. MAKE SURE: Since you'll be going this route, that you make sure that there is a wbfs folder in this:

    Spoiler


    Follow these directions:

    1) Before formatting back up all of your data.
    2) Download EaseUS Partition Manager located: HERE
    3) Reformat both partitions of your harddrive to NTFS/FAT32 [NTFS is my preference], for the right side is in RAW format... This is unusable unless formatted of course.
    4) MAKE SURE THE ENTIRE DRIVE IS FORMATTED IN UNISON TO EITHER FAT32/NTFS (Again preferably NTFS)
    4) After format-tation, create a folder called wbfs.
    5) Take your old data located in that spoiler back into the root:USB:\
    6) Use Wii Backup Manager located: HERE
    7) Here's it's usage:
    • Load the iso by clicking "Add" in the "Files" tab
    • Select your file, may be in even rar/compressed format, as long as it has the iso
    • Click either:
    • 1) Transfer "WBFS File.."
    • 2) Select where to place the file.
    • - OR
    • 2) Select Drive 1 in the tabs above
    • 3) Select the drive containing your wbfs folder from the dropdown menu
    • 4) Click back to the "Files" tab
    • 5) Click Transfer from the file menu
    • 6) Select "Drive 1"
    • 7) Wait patiently, as the green bar will load
    • IF YOU HAVE A SUPER SHORT DURATIONAL GREEN BAR DO THIS!
    • - Click the "Log*" tab
    • - Scroll to the bottom of the page
    • - Note the items in RED are your erros, (normally due to spacing, the files will not copy)

    So I made it all one partition and formatted it to be NTFS. I followed the rest of your instructions and still USB Loader GX just freezes after initializing the USB device and stays at "11 seconds to go" uLoader also continues to freeze.

    I'm so lost now

    Also I didn't see any errors during the transfer

    Do I need to format it to WBFS via Wii Backup Manager?

    I really dont think formatting to WBFS will make a difference here. It could be a compatibility issue with your HDD. Its a long shot, but try installing the d2x v9 betas. There is a link to them in my GX guide below in my sig. Use WiiMod or MMM to install them. Then try launching GX again.
