    usb hard drive black screen please help

    I have a soft modded wii. My games are loaded on an external hard drive. I have approx. 60 games on my hard drive. All of which use to load fine. My kids brought it to my attention that some of the games wont load anymore. We just get a black screen. I know these games use to work fine. I havn't done anything to my setup in awhile. The last thing I remember was changing to a new usb loader awhile back. Have there been new updates? Anyone have a clue why this would happen? I havn't changed anything and the games use to work. Why would they stop loading? Thank you.

    First ensure your usb is plugged into the correct port, its the one closest to the edge of the wii as you look at the system from the front.
    I also suggest remodding your wii by following the soft mod any wii guide on this site to get your system bang up to date. You can also get the latest versions of the USB loader of your choice from the same guide.
    You can find the guide in a moderators signature or use the delightful search feature on this site.
    If that doesn't fix your problem report back.

    In addition to the above, getting the most recent version of the USB Loaders isn't a bad idea. I have links to the three big ones in my signature. Just swap out the "boot.dol" file in the specific app directory on your sd card. (renaming to boot.dol if needed in some cases).

    With GX, when upgrading to a new version, it usually is a good idea to delete the global config file and have it rebuilt a new one. It doesn't detect this and clean itself up very well. That alone will sometimes fix the problem.

    HI all;

    Similar issue here.

    Let me explain a few "odd" things I have been trying.

    I am trying to have my external drive contain all the necessary files to boot all wiibrew apps as well as games in wbfs format.

    I (seemingly) have modded the wii correctly.

    I have put the latest gxloader on my wii chanel menu.

    I have most of my games loading from the usb drive.

    I have gone through all the games to ensure that they are less than 4 gig (full fat 32 drive) and used disk manager to create the naming and file conventions.

    Some games (Wii music) wont load and just die at the intro screen (not too many)

    Now my questions:

    first - when I load a game it tells me autosave does not have enough memory. Is there any way to use the external drive to maintain the autosave files.

    Second - When I did a "crude" backup to a different external drive (copy and paste) the "back-up" drive wont play ANY of the games. I get to gxloader and then no matter what game i try and load it dies after pressing start in the game menu.

    I will go back and chck the guides and see if my system conforms.

    Any shorcuts are appreciated.

    Have you tried installing the games directly to your hard drive using the "Install" function of GX and your game disk?

    Also, post a syscheck so we can see how your system is modded.
