    For the record, I did try what I described in my original post in a second Wii. Same results. But to be fair, I soft-modded that one too. So it could be the Wii. I hadn't thought about that.

    It could be the drive itself. A lot of USB 3.0 drives do not work correctly, if at all. You can check on the compatibility list (to which there is a link in my sig). Do you have another drive you could test out? Even a flash drive would work (probably, anyway).

    Phooey. And I had just downloaded yesterday the files to update my soft mod x). Well I'm gonna go ahead and do it anyways. (Thanks for the bump btw)

    Well I tried a WD 500GB, a WD 1.5TB, and a Sandisk Cruiser Micro 16GB. With the 1.5TB in particular, I tried with 2 partitions, one NTFS and another FAT32. And I tried both putting the FAT32 one first, and then second. The order didn't make a difference. Always using EASEUS Partition Master 9.1.1 Home Edition.

    I'm not the owner of the 500GB (so I can't check), and the 1.5TB one doesn't appear in the compatibility list. But the 16GB one does, and all 3 are acting the same as it.

    Rock Band SHOULD work with this, shouldn't it? DLC and everything.

    Edit: Btw, it slows down to different extents when loading, but it only freezes when detecting new songs.

    Anyways, what I quoted is my previous post. Additionally, I have now upgraded my softmod. No apparent changes. But I recalled some other issue that may be related. When I load Wad Manager 1.7, and choose USB Mass Storage Device 2.0, I always get Error (ret = -2). When I disconnect it, I just get -1, alright, same as any other slot. But no matter what I plug into that slot (the ones I already mentioned), it just won't load it, and I've had this problem day 1. If I need to install anything, I need to get an SD. And btw, when I plug said drives into the 1.0 slot, they work like a charm. So I've got no idea what's happening there.

    Anyways, could this have something to do with my problem? Or if not, is there any other drive formating alternative I could use to get better results?

    Ahhh, I remembered something else. You know that USB Loader GX has features called Dump Game Save to EmuNAND, and Dump NAND to EmuNAND. When I click the former, it has happened to me many times that it will just get stuck halfways (at the band3.something file most of the times; do remember I'm doing all this for Rock Band). And when I click the second, it got stuck ALWAYS at the same file, wc24rcv.mbx. Well, this problem doesn't always happen, but when it does, the solution is to copy everything back and forth from my computer to the hard drive.

    And for the record, I tried using the EmuNAND dumped this way, using the EmuNAND I dumped years ago when I first soft modded, and using no EmuNAND at all and letting USB Loader GX create it as I played! (this last one worked the best, surprisingly)

    Seriously, just what could I be doing so wrong? Anyone? I'm on the verge of giving up xD
    Post 3

    Well, the mystery is solved. The latest version of the cIOS are still not compatible with Rock Band 3, and for what I saw from someone in GBATemp, Just Dance 4 slow downs too, so I guess it has to do with games with DLC in general.

    I tried a homebrew app (that doesn't even have a name I think?) and it let me emulate a 4.3u Wii inside mine (using some cIOS 253 I had to install). So having all normal IOS, and seeing how that worwked flawlessly, I went and tried WiiFlow. Because, if it was really the cIOS, then WiiFlow would behave the same as USB Loader GX. And that it did. So it's neither loader, but the cIOS.

    But the final proof came thanks to cjizzle here. He told me to install some different cIOS, and after having done so, Rock Band stopped hanging and making that ugly noise. Instead the "Loading New Content" progress bar just never moves past "1 of [total] Loaded". So even though it still doesn't work, it made a notable difference.

    So there you have it. I'll share the name of this app as soon as I figure it out xD. But perhaps anybody here knows about it? Well, thanks to everyone for the help! Couldn't had done it without you xP.

    You should just have an edit post button, instead of deleting and making a new one, but thanks for trying something other than just simply triple-posting.

    No problem! But just editing wouldn't bump the topic. ... or would it?

    Anyways, to close the matter, the app I used was sorg's NandEmu and its Uniiloader. Good luck to anyone trying to do the same! x)

    No, it wouldn't bumb, but there's a rule for that in the forum rules that states you should wait 24 hours to "bump" a thread. So we don't want three posts in short succession bumping up each time.

    So, I can double post, if the posts are at least a day apart from each other? Is it justified then? Well, that's that, I didn't know that. I don't think the rules mention that actually.

    See, my first 2 posts were like 2 days apart, and the third one was almost 2 weeks later. So it wasn't a matter of not respecting the 24 hours, but about not having 2 posts in succession -at all-. And I thought that by quoting it would keep the dates of the original posts (other forums do that), so it would show.

    Sorry to bring this up again but I thought I should clear that up. Cheers and have a good day!

    Ahh. I didn't notice that your three posts were so far apart. In those cases, you could have replied to yourself, without deleting the past messages, and you would have been within the rules. Sorry for the confusion. I missed the dates of the posts, I just saw that you deleted yourself twice and posted a long consolidated post. So I thought they were all within the same day.
