    Problem installing backup disc on USBLOADERGX

    Hi. ive been reading the forum for quite some time and searched the forum and couldent find a solution so i decided to do my First post


    I have problems installing backup discs with the usbloader gx. the wii freezes or crashes ONLY with backup discs! original discs works like a charm

    im currently running with systemmenu 4.2 and completly followed the guide on how to softmod 4.2 and have done this numeros times on other wiis, i have also tried to re-install everything but with the same result.

    the wii is also equipped with a Argon chip and im considering maby there might be some conflict with it?

    Please any help or ideas would be great!

    This sounds a LOT like a mod chip issue. My D2Pro9 would cause all sorts of drive issues, and you've described esp when trying to do backups. When I removed it to put in my wode, they all vanished. If you really want to do a lot of USB stuff and have the cash I highly recommend the wode (You can find many links in the forums here from people using it), but what I do at the moment to do backing up. I have my Wii soft moded, and I use the GX Loader with the Wode in "Flat Wode" mode, place the disc in, and about 3-6 minutes later, its on my USB HDD. I then just plug the USB HDD back into the wode, select my game, and it loads without issue.

    In the future the Wode will be adding the ability to rip orginals directly to your drive, so it will no longer be a two step process.

    Okey. But i think wode is to expensive for me. But im considering remove the argon chip. Can i just remove the + cable or do i have to remove it completly from the drive?

    Well it depends, if the chip is on a solderless clip, just pull it off. If its soldered to the drive board, you're best off fully removing the wire. Technically cutting the wires will do the trick, but then you run the risk of the wires touching things the shouldnt and possibly damaging the drive.

    Im probably not gonna open the wii, its not that big of a problem i think ill just use WBFS manager or use another wii to do backups.
    Its just very irritating that everything else works but not the installation of backup games.

    Its oviously the modchip thats the problem since i tried everything else twice but thanks for the help anyways!

    Just some things to also note, a chip or chips in general do have a tendency to actually slow the drive down (function wise), but if you have another Wii handy and dont want to crack it open, asides from doing any updates to the chip itself (if there are any), doing what your planning is going to be your only route.
