    Wellll

    Well, yesterday, I decided to get on my Wii after about two months, and saw this cool thing where you can load games via USB. I've been trying/failing for about 5 hours now, and finally, I get the thing to work. But disks aren't being recognized anymore. I've downloaded lots of random software such as cIOS rev 14, rev 10 once, USB Loader GX, USB Loader, Cover Flow loader, and bunch of other stuff required, but not entirely sure if that has anything to do with reading disks. Currently, it spins for about 10 seconds or a backup and stops, and for Wii Sports, it keeps trying, clicking noises are heard every 10 seconds for about a minute, and then the Error message shows up. Any help anyone?

    Lots of random software is probably going to be your issue. USB loaders and some backup loaders such as Neogamma just require one cIOS and that would be your cIOS 38 rev 14 or 13.

    Are we talking about retail discs that are failing?
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Well, the version is 3.3U, I installed cIOS rev 10 and also rev 14, i tried different versions with the rev 14 since I didn't know which one to pick when it asked me. IOS, I used the three WAD files, 38, 53, 55. And I did install 249 some of the times when I installed the cIOS rev 14.

    Also, found out my HDD isn't working. After partitioning it, my computer doesn't recognize either partition, and is only showing as "USB Mass Storage Device" in Device Manager, and I am not able to assign a drive letter to it or do anythign else. I guess help for that would be appreciated.

    When you are using the HDD with the Wii to play backups it will not be recognized in Windows because it uses a file system that works with the Wii but that Windows understand. This is normal. Look for an application called WBFS Manager 3.0 in order to see the partition on the drive and move game backups back and forth off of the drive while in Windows.

    Your issue playing the games sounds like it could be that your HDD is not compatible with the USB Loaders. For some reason the homebrew applications are very finicky about the type and brand of HDD you use. I has to buy another HDD to find this out the hard way when I started having problems with the initial drive I was using. There is a compatibility chart that is out there and maintained to give you an idea if your drive is one of the incompatible ones. Below is the link to the drive compatibility chart for USB loaders:

    "...that Windows can't understand." Sorry.

    No, no, it's not that. Before, Windows picked up both, but could not open the partition with the WBFS, but could open the other partition. Right now, neither even shows up as a drive letter and it even says the hard drive isn't working properly.

    Sounds like your hard drive has kicked the bucket...

    Download IOSchecker and use the homebrew channel to boot it. You will be then able to see do you have all the proper IOS's installed.
