once out of every... 3 times i go to load a game in usb loader gx, i get a black screen. its not consistent, but i'd say 1 of 3 is pretty average. its just a major annoyance having to get up and reset the wii, especially when everyone is sitting around waiting to play.

im running 3.4e, launch day ntsc-u with a wiikey2. its very softmodded and all games run off an old WD 160gb hard drive i had laying around.

i do not think the old IDE hard drive is the problem, because sometimes i get the same problem while loading an app in the homebrew channel.

anyone know where to start? im sure i am leaving something important out.
