I used to use GX, but when it wouldn't work right more than once, and having to check for updates all the time, I found a different loader. Configurable USB Loader, yes that one is updated sometimes , but not like GX. And it works all the time when I use it. It's nice, it uses coverflow and can look like the standard 1.5 loader, and has all the booting options.

I really would like the cover feature of Conf loader but it's way too slow to be useful. It takes way too long for the covers to load and by the time you get to one end of the alphabet it's unloaded all the covers from the other end so you have to start all over so the fancy cover feature might be okay if all you have are a few games... but it's useless if you are fully loaded.
It's also weak on global configuration settings... I don't want to have to turn some features on and off for every game, like anti 002 fix.
Hello, I have been having the same issues. I have a NTSC Wii, D2Sun, Firmware 4.0 using Waninkoko software. Evertything works fine, all the games work fine. I decided to use USBLoader and USBLoader GX, both worked fine with a 1GB and 4GB pendrives, even with a chinese MP3 (the ones that have a micro sd slot) with a 2GB microSD. So I decided to buy an external enclosure (because I had and old 40GB Samsung Hard Disk and I'm in the process of buying a new hard drive for my PC so the 250GB would go to the enclosure). I installed, format and transfer some games, through WBFS Manager. Both loader show the games but with some when they start to load I get a black screen, with other random freezes. I tried with another hard drive (newer one) and the same thing. I tried with cIOS rev 10, 12, 13 and 13b, even with hermes cIOS 222 beta 4, and everything is the same, so it has to be the enclosure that it's not working right.
I have installed all drives as a master, and in Windows as an external drive I have no issues
just go HERE
and download the latest revision of usb loader GX. bugs are being ironed out constantly. 1 or 2 new updates every day. btw, what revision do you have? look in the about menu (if the version is to old it might not be there).
What you talkin' about, willis? They update more often than most ppl change socks - sometimes 5 times a day. MOST of their updates don't work... I still use the loader and they came out with an update today, r581, that's stable... but mostly they are more concerned with getting new features coded in than getting the bugs fixed on the features they've added their manic coding can get trying at times.

so? it still might work...
I have a feeling that either the SATA-USB bridge you're using is not compatible or the drive itself. If you have other hardware, I suggest you try loading some isos onto a USB key and trying that first. If it load, then you know it's the storage medium and not the wii or any of the software itself.

Same here - GX kept failing and giving me errors, Configurable USB Loader works every time perfect.
