    cant get usb loader to read games from HDD

    Hello all I Have a first gen soft modded wii from 2009 I wasn't the one who did the mod so I know very little about it. I do know they they usually would get their games and burn them to disks to play on the wii. Now I want to skip the disks and use a HD I have a large hard drive and the whole thing is FAT 32. I Tried 3 different usb loaders usb loader GX works but cant find my HD CFG says it failed and wont even open and wii flow just makes my wii disk drive light flash and shuts off my controller. yes i tried wii back up manager and also tried using wii game manager thinking maybe that was the issue i also tried to put a game on my NTFS flash drive and that didn't work either. If you need any other information in helping me solve this problem I would be happy to provide it thanks please help

    OK, I have cleaned this thread up. Keep in mind that wiihacks does not support piracy. We will help you with your retail games.

    Your wii was probably modded a long time ago and only set up to play burned games, not run usb loaders. You should start with the softmod any wii guide linked in my signature. That will get you all set up for usb loading. Once you do that you will also need a compatible hard drive that is properly set up. We have guide on here for that as well.

    After you have successfully softmodded your wii you have to make sure that the usb drive that you are trying to use is compatible, not all external hard drives work.
    You can refer to the link bellow to see if you have a compatible model.

    I have similar problem
    My HDD is Toshiba 500gb portable

    Wii flow - WiiFlow Static Channel IOS222-WFHH.wad recognizes hard drive and I can play games no problems
    but when I try WiiFlow Static Channel IOS249-WFHW.wad it does not
    I tried with the latest wii flow ios249 same problem.
    I dont understand why?
    where I can find the latest wii flow and USB loader gx which runs on ios 222?

    by the way 1Tb works fine.

    any ideas?
