    Question USB Loader GX doesn't load games (blank screen when launching games)

    Hi,

    I have softmodded my Wii and installed the latest USB Loader GX. In the beginning it worked pretty fine. I had a few games on my 8GB USB stick. The all worked. After a few days, nothing happens when I start a game. Big Brain academy hangs on the screen which explains how to tie up the wrist strap, other games just give a black screen. I have tried to reinstall USB Loader GX, the cIOS, etc.. Alos tried other USB loader (like WiiFlow) but all give the same problem. However, when I rip Wii Sports to USB, it works.

    Can it have something to do with my Wii, or is the cause of the problem somewhere on my PC (WBFS manager 3.0)? I have my ISO's on a FAT32 formatted 1GB WD Elements disk and use WBFS manager 3.0 to copy them to the USB stick.

    I do not have ANY clue of what to do to fix this. The more that it worked flawless in the beginning and suddenly not.

    HELP!!!!

    I really don't know what would cause this, but I was just reading another post where a member had a similar problem. His usb -> usb transfers were getting corrupted, just like yours. But when he transferred the files from his pc all was good. Try transferring some iso's to your pc first, then place them on the stick with wbfs manager and see if you get different results.

    Solved!!!!!!!

    Hi Ithian,

    I think you're rught. Or at least partially. I have downloaded some ISO's again and now they are working. What I did before is that I copied ISO's from my USB stick to a FAT32 USB HDD. As FAT32 cannot cope with >4GB files, they got corrupted in one or the other way. So it seems like the disk accepts that large files, but actually it doesn't.

    So, in short, it had nothing to do with the USB loader, cIOS, IOS or whatsoever.

    regards,
    Maarten

    Remark

    By the way, copying back to my PC first doesn't work either. The ISO's got corrupted during the initial copy TO the USB HDD.

    Ah gotchya. Glad to hear you got them working at any rate. I've been moving away from FAT32 on my larger drives in favor of NTFS and HFS+ for their larger file-size handling and performance. I still keep my old flash stick formatted FAT, and my sd cards of course, but after I started working so much with these game iso's, and other larger file types, it's almost beginning to feel like a necessity.

    I think that is a very good idea. I'm getting more and more and bigger ISO files which just need NTFS. But my internal HDD's from my PC are pretty full and I have already stored a lot of data on my external 1TB HDD which is unfortunately FAT32 formatted. So there is currently no way to get my external disk to NTFS. Maybe I can borrow a disk from a friend or so where I can temporarilly store data.

    Well at least I can play my Wii games.

    Happy Holidays

    heres the way you convert fat32 to ntfs without loosing your files FREE using windows

    A Standard Windows utility that is called CONVERT serves this purpose

    Just go to the Command Prompt and execute the command:
    C:\> CONVERT C: /fs:ntfs

    Where C: is a name of the drive you want to convert.

    After machine re-boot conversion process will start and you'll have your FAT32 converted to NTFS without of data loss.

    !! WARNING this is a one way conversion - once yu do this only way to get back to fat32 is a full format that will delete any files on the drive !!

    hope that helps you out
