    USB Drive doesn't read in either slot on Wii

    So I tried loading SSBB (which I own) on my Wii using Wiiflow, and it did it's magic. But for some reason, it crashed back and said I didn't have any games avaliable. I tried to switch to the USB1 partition, but it wasn't there. So I tried the 2nd USB port, but that didn't work either. I tried USB GX Loader but that ALSO didn't work, even after so long. WBFS Manager still reads it fine on my computer and I don't know why it doesn't work on my Wii. Please help ASAP!

    EDIT: I have a Black Wii installed with DOP-Mii, BootMii, PriiLoader, and it's running 4.3u. The USB drive is a Kingston.

    You may want to try formatting your drive to FAT32 and loading the games to it using WiiBackup Manager or a similar app. Do you have a lot of games on your WBFS formatted drive? If so you can use wbfs2fat to convert it without losing anything.

    My USB drive has been reformatted to FAT32 using the program mentioned. I do not know how to use WiiBackup Manager.

    Thanks, got it formatted and the game's on! Unfortuantely, WiiFlow will crash whenever I try to load it, and USB Loader GX still doesn't recognize the drive.

    Drive is compatible, NeoGamma, USBLoaderGX AND WiiFlow are installed. But NONE of them work. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Are there certain instructions? ?

    EDIT: I need cIOSes. Either 249rev18, 222v4, 223v4, or 224v5. What do I do, because I'm afraid of bricking

    So what did you do to get it working? A simple "it works now" doesnt help anyone else who has the same problem.
