    Hello. I have followed the guide for 4.2 and your guide, done everything as told.
    My NeoGamma works, but when I load USB loader GX it gives me this massage:

    Reloading into iso 236
    ISO 236 not found, reloading into 36
    Starting up
    Initializing controllers
    Initializing USB (wake up)
    Reloading iso 249...0
    Init wbfs...0
    Initialize sd card
    Initialize usb device

    the screen is black with this tekst on, and staying like this untill i restart my wii

    I use a Western Digital 500gb usb HDD (1 year old), done with it as told in this guide without any problems and my 3 year old PAL wii


    If you need any other info please ask, any help would be appriciated

    OK, fixed it. You should add that you dont have to do all the delete partition and EDIT, just format it to NTFS and click Format in WBFS. And btw, i had a link to imageshack in the post but it were removed for some reason...

    Not recognizing External HD

    I just finished pretty much everything up to the launcher step and while I'm pretty sure I did everything right; however, my Wii is not recognizing my external HD.

    The only part that seems a bit weird is after creating the partition on my HD, I assigned the letter W: as the drive and left it in it's raw state. It is the primary and active partition, but it is raw and can't be read by my computer(laptop). Any suggestions or maybe anything I did wrong?

    Thanks!

    My guess is that the external should not be raw? The screenshot shown in the instructions shows the drive I believe to be his Wii HDD as a FAT32 format. Any ideas?

    Because NeoGamma works, that indicates your softmod is fine. So that leaves a problem with USB Loader GX or the HDD. First, try using NeoGamma to see if it can use the USB HDD. If that fails, it looks more like the HDD has some problem-looks like it is not being recognized. As the HDD is a year old, can you check and make sure there isn't a hidden first partition in the way there? Also, did you reformat and run checkdsk before you created the WBFS partition?

    That procedure doesn't always work; can't just go by your own experience. The guides try to cover as many of the membership as possible. Glad you solved your own problem. Your image is probably in the moderator queue awaiting authorization. Strange there was no indication at all that your post had a link somewhere.

    Thanks for the explanation-that makes more sense. Although it wouldn't be the first time someone has played "guess what I'm thinking" with us. Have fun with your Wii, now.

    Use the PC's disk manager and format that RAW partition as FAT32 and then try again. RAW partitions have worked before, but everyone's setup is a bit different so try it after an initial FAT32 format, then. As long as you are going to have to specifically format as FAT32, I should mention that most of the USB loaders will also recognize and play Wii game ISOs from a FAT32 partition and some even from an NTFS formatted partition. In case you are interested. It is not yet common enough a use that I feel compelled to create a guide for that, yet.

    God that baby in your sig cracks me up.

    As far as the wii is concerned... I got it working for it to only not work after I loaded a 2nd game into it. This is due to the Wii not recognizing my Wii HDD the second time... why I'm not sure. I'll try a few different formats to see if it works.

    Did you check your HDD against both of the compatibility lists? If the drive was recognized and then not recognized later there are two more common reasons: 1) the USB Loader GX configuration file got corrupted-for that find it and delete it. It will re-create itself the next time you run the app.; 2) the USB HDD is not really all that compatible. Other things can be responsible, but those are the most common. If you are using a recent version of USB Loader GX, you might try revision 919, 916, or 899. I think rev 916 is linked in this guide.
