    New to Wii modding

    Hi I just bought a Wii that was already soft modded with homebrew and usb loader GX. Ive got the hang of using the usb loader but some games ask for a disc or gives me a black screen which i have to pull the power plug out to fix. Is there a way to fix this?

    Also I was told by the previous owner that the whole hdd was wbfs formatted. can i use it to boot gamecube games?

    GC games only works with FAT32 HDD, 1st partition.
    WII games and GC games works perfect with FAT32 HDD
    GC games in "games" folder and WII games in "wbfs" folder.
    Try wbfs2fat it does not delete the WII games you will not lose any games,all your Wii games will be in a wbfs folder on your FAT32 HDD, I use it and I did not lose any games and the wii games and HB stuff all work perfect after.

    For dios mios you need FAT32 HDD with 32KB cluster size so after you convert it to FAT32 check the cluster size, if it is 64KB use Acronis Disk Director 11 Advanced to change the cluster from 64KB to 32KB cluster it is very quick, I did not lose any data and it is very fast also and the games work perfect after.
    Update to USB Loader GX R1200,Replace the boot.dol in your SD or USB /apps/ usbloader_gx with the updated one.( r1200_IOS249)
    Sometimes when you update USB Loader GX, you have to remove the GXGameSettings.GFG file in usbloader_gx app because it was set to use the old USB Loader GX or you have to check your settings to make sure they're correct.
    Try from HBC first and if your USB Loaders channels are forwarders you could try the USB Loader channels or i
    nstall USB Loader GX -UNEO_Forwarder Channel 5_1_AHBPROT.wad for USB Loader GX channel.

    When it crashes, you can hold the power button down for 10 seconds to get it to shutdown.
    You could try a different game loader. I use cfg-usbloader v70. Not come across any games that won't load with it.
