    Help With USB Loader?

    My USB HDD was working perfectly until yesterday. It's 250 GB and generic. There's one light tht flashes blue/violet when it's working and red when it's errored, I believe. Anyways, Ive been using 1.1 for awhile and upgraded to 1.4 three days ago and all was going well. I had about 16 games on the drive and everyone of them worked. All of a sudden, whenever I go to launch a game now, the light turns red and it freezes on "booting Wii game." Is this a common bug? I know my drive isnt busted cuz it lists the games AND i can extract them when I connect it to my MacBook and use WBFS for Mac OS X 1.2. I'm also dd'ing the entire drive to my 1 TB HDD for back up purposes and it hasn't failed yet. Any help? 1.4 with rev 10 cIOS.

    If this is the wrong section, I'm sorry, can it be moved? Thanks!

    i dont really have any exact suggestions that for sure will work but have you tried going back down to rev9 ...

    i know personally myself i have issues with rev 10 and 1.4..if i have rev 10 installed 1.4 detects my drive but says it is not formatted to wbfs..where as if im on rev 9 works perfectly fine detects all games and plays all the ones ive tried so far...and ive yet to figure out why mine does that on rev 10 or heard any suggestions as to why it is like that.......
    but other loader variations ive tried on rev 10 work fine so dont know

    I also pushed mine back to 9, I think there may be a bug with 10 due to the timeout they added for the drive to be connected or reconnected.

    what problems did you have with rev 10? was it the same not detecting a formatted wbfs on the drive with 1.4?

    and another loader i have different from 1.4 also has the timeout thing which works on rev 9 and 10 fine with no issues...the only issues i really get are from rev 10 with 1.4 loader not detecting my drive has been formatted already

    It recognized my hdd as usual but it would lag a bit and it wouldnt force NTSC for some reason. I didnt format my drive seeing as the gui still saw everything as normal. Funny thing though, 1.4 loader still works for me under 9 it even shows my covers, now to get it as a channel and I will be a happy camper!

    I think when you extracted the games, it corrupted your HDD. There is a known bug that corrupts the HDD when you extract/delete games. But it's fixed now.

    lol i would but i already have all my games on it....im just gonna stick with rev 9 and use the first one you ever gave me the ntsc usbloader 1.1..thats really the only one i havent had the freeze issue in games happen very often...

    in both usb loader 1.4 and usbloadermodv3 or usbloadermodv7.3 after im playing say endless ocean for varied amount of time (usually around an hour of play) if i go to look at an item or load to a new screen it just freezes to a black screen i can move the wii remote around but nothing responds..and that happens on those loaders with both rev 9 and rev 10, i think it might just be a conflict with my hdd but not 100%

    i know if i play it from disc on rev 9 theres no issue so i believe its some conflict with my hdd after running for so long..but it dosent happen very often on that ntsc usbloader 1.1 so just stick with that and test new stuff when it comes out see what happens


    just a side note i talked to someone else who had the same problem with rev 10 and usbloader 1.4 he said if he formatted on his pc when he tried loader it says not formatted so he formatted with the loader then but when he put it back on pc then the pc manager wouldnt detect the format......so im not the only one with that rev 10 loader 1.4 issue
