    Question USB Loader not loading games / Wii Explorer not loading

    Thank you in advance for your help. I went through Mauifrogs softmod to a Wii 4.3U with no problems. My HDD was on the accepted list, formatted with fat 32, created WBFS and loaded games. Plugged the HDD into my Wii and started and the first thing I see is Wiiexplorer will not load. Just keeps flashing that it is loading. So then I go and try each of my 3 USB loaders and none of them will show any games on my HDD. I used the 3 recommended in the softmod guide. Did this about 3 weeks ago with all the latest files. Any ideas why I can't load games and is my Wii Explorer not loading have something to do with it?

    Let's have a look under your Wii's hood. Post a SysCheck as a reply to this thread - both the directions and the program itself can be found HERE.

    I plugged it into the port at the bottom closest to the edge.

    I tried to post my pastebin link twice but for some reason it won't post so I will just repost my syscheck text:

    Yes I tried replugging a few times. I will try a different USB cord next, thanks. But that wouldn't explain why when I start the Wii "Wiiexplorer loading" just keeps flashing but never loads. Something is wrong there. I followed all of Mauifrogs advice exactly and didn't run into any problems that I couldn't figure out. I tried to post my pastebin link for my syscheck twice, but it wouldn't post so I just reposted the text. I really need someone to look at my syscheck. I know there is another place to post syschecks, but I had already started this thread and didn't want to post the same thing twice in the forum which is against the forum rules.

    SysCheck is good (some of your posts with hyperlinks were auto-moderated). It's not your Wii's softmod - looks faultless. Are you sure you completed the FAT32 guide?

    Yeah, I went through the fat32 guide and followed it step by step. but if you say everything looks good. I guess I will just keep trying it. I thought for sure you would see something in the syscheck because that wiiexplorer just keeps flashing and it says it is loading. I keep the SD card in, right? I had the SD card in and plugged in my HDD.

    It depends. You can (as long as FAT32) use your USB HD instead. Generally, our setups are dependent on the SD card being in the SD card slot (but with pathing variables can be altered to point exclusively to the HD only).

    What's the exact make and model of the USB device?
