    Wii HDD with CFG Loader (and Loader GX) Trouble shooting! Help!

    I am very new to the softmod scene, though my Wii was a somewhat old one with a hardmod chip (Wasabi) about 3 years ago.

    I followed this guide [Removed Outside Link] for the softmod. I've installed CFG USB Loader (v 62, via Forwarder) with about 50 games now. I loaded them into the HDD (FAT32 formatted) through Wii Backup Manager 0.3.6 (64-bit on Win7 computer). I have installed cIOSx rev 20 (@ slot 248), and 222/223It works fine when I tested it and the games played without problem.

    But then the next day when I tried to play again, the USB loader ran, it saw the games and all, but none of the games played. It froze trying to load it and eventually lead to a blank screen. I had to reset the Wii. I didn't change any configuration since I played last though. I deleted everything from the HDD, and transferred everything back to it all over again. AND THE GAMES PLAYED FINE again!!! That is until I turned it off, came back the next day. It's blank screen all over again.

    Can someone shed some light on this? I've googled a lot but found no solution. I powered down my Wii completely, if that matters at all.

    I've a Western Digital My Passport Essential (500GB), Robot Special addition

    Amazon.com: My Passport Essential 500 GB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive WDBAAA5000AD6-NESN: Electronics

    Is it compatibility issue because of the special edition of the HDD (seems unlikely though because it played initially). Anything else I can/should try? Many thanks ahead.

    [EDIT: I've tried WBFS partition using USB Loader GX, and FAT32 with CFG USB Loader, same problem]

    That drive should be fine. The 'special' is just the design, but I've got that drive and 3 friends have the same. It's not the drive model, although it might be the drive itself. If it's new enough, you might want to consider taking it back and getting a new one.

    Don't have much other suggestions though.

    Thanks doncaruana. That's reassuring to know. I didn't think it would be the compatibility issue given that it's a Passport Essential.

    In any case, I am trying to get down to the root of it, installing 1 file at a time and test it. And download the cover art at a time, too. It's going to be painful but I am running out of option. There's no reason for me to think the drive is flaking on me since I could reproduce the problems, somewhat, multiple times.

    Please chime in if you have any suggestions/suspicions. Thanks a lot!

    Exclamation usb loader gx; ocarina not working

    hi ive recently hacked wii and it all works apart from ocarina

    i can select the hacks i want but when it gets to after the intro on call of duty black ops, the screen goes black. first i left it for ten mins but nothing changed, the wiimote stayed connected so the wii dosent freeze.

    thats all i know about the problem

    and the game works without the ocarina and so do the rest

    either way.. read the rules and introduce yourself also..

    Cheating is cheating either way.. always being host means you cant be kicked, you can end game when ever, and what ever other advantages there are.. this site does not promote, condone, support, or assist with cheating in any way.. sorry
