    CFG USB Loader Freezes Randomly

    Hello,
    I recently used Softmod ANY Wii to hack my wii and so far its been great, I loaded homebrew and am having tons of fun with the sega genesis and GBA emulators, I'm having some issues with the USB backup loader though. I first tried CFG USB Loader with my usb formated to FAT32 and the game would work however the game would eventually freeze, sometimes after 2 or 3 loading screens and sometimes before the game would even load. I tried searching in wiihacks and google and most people suggested making sure the cIOS' were updated. I'd read on one of the threads here that if I used the softmod guide after Feb 2011 I wouldn't have to worry about updating the cIOS' but I did a few of them anyway. I then tried using WiiFlow to see if it was the USB loader but it was worse if nothing else, the games wouldn't go past the white screen warning about knocking things over with the wiimote. I tried specifying which cIOS to use as well when I read someone was using CFG v60 with the 222-mload cIOS but that didn't work either. I'm running out of ideas to try and fix it and I'd really appreciate it if someone posts any suggestions. I'm running system menu 4.1u with a usb formated to FAT 32 on v69 CFG USBLoader and am using usingWiiBackupManager to load my games, and the games I've tried so far are Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Zelda: Twilight Princess, will try doing WiiSports soon. Should I maybe try running through the guide and update everything one more time?

    Thanks for taking the time to read this post

    I have also found that freezing issues like u described can be from a bad rip. In wii backup manager there is an option under tools md5 check, which will check all the games on ur drive for corrupted ones.

    I ran the MD5 check and got this:



    I used ImgBurn to create the ISO's at 4/4x reading speed, idk if that helps at all. Games are still unpredictably freezing.

    click the log tab. any files that are bad will be in red with an explanation. If any are red, then delete those games and rerip from original disc.

    Did you also verify your USB HD is on the list of compatible ones for the Wii? If you want, run a SysCheck as described here and post the results in a reply.

    SysCheck:

    Spoiler



    I checked the USB compatibility page listed here but mine wasn't mentioned, I have a Silicon Power 16 GB USB HD. I can try to borrow a Kingston or something if needed.

    Your syscheck looks fine. Probably your hdd as suggested above.

    It worked! I used a generic USB and its finally running smoothly and since I'm a cheesy guy who loves cheesy things please imagine the following sentence is being said by an overly excited kid in a commercial.

    Thanks Wiihacks!

    P.S. please feel free to post any snide remarks about what a dork I am I won't mind.
