    Try changing usb port, as some of the Usb Loader programs are fickle about that and their are some drives that are not compatible. You could try GX Loader which incorporates parts of USB loader 1.5 and has a high success. http://www.wiihacks.com/software-bac...loader-gx.html

    actually it didn't recognize my usb inthe begining when u format so i used WBFS to format the usb and copy the game on it. I used both of my usbs one is disk2go (4GB) and the other one is Verbatim (2GB). no idea why it isn't recognizing. Is there any way to play the game through HBC

    Nope. Buy a bigger USB drive.. you can get like 320GB for like 50 bucks now.

    " Users have also reported success using the following hard drives :
    AcomData PureDrive 1 TB USB 2.0/eSATA External Hard Drive PHD10000USE-72
    Western Digital My Book Essential Edition 1 TB USB 2.0 External Hard Drive WDH1U10000N "

    Find one of those 2.. I have the WD My Book Essential 1TB and it works fine.

    I would agree with iceache.

    You need to get a normal usb hdd, most flash drives wont work any way. I think there are a couple of loaders + cios 13 that will recognize flash drives in fat32 for covers and settings only. No major benefits by using a small jump drive anyway.

    Their set up may be different from yours...? Try verifying the jump drive is in the right format, when you plug it into your PC, does it ask you to format, it should? Some, if not most flash drives wont format into the WBFS, so therefore it wont work. I have used a FreeAgent 1TB, a FreeAgent GO 250 and an older Seagate 160 (with the dual usb cords: power+data) and they all worked fine. My Ativa 4gb flash wouldn't work and I used partmagic on that, used in fat32 and I could load covers and settings for my loaders, thats the only useful thing, other than holding brew apps, that a jump drive would be good for.

    i thinkthe problem is something else cuz when i tried to run burned dvds. I burned around 8 dvds with different games on it and at different speed and all of em gave me the same error so i think mybe the problem is something else. Maybe i haven't softmodded my wii properly so if i format and do everything from the begining does it have more chances of bricking or working.
