My problem seems trivial to me, but I cannot find anything in the search. I want to copy the games I bought onto my hard drive for use with USB Loader GX. I downloaded one of those games and it runs great from USB loader. (So I guess I formated and connected the drive all right.) But every time I put a game (NSMB, the current harry potter, ...) in the drive, click the install button and confirm, I just see the USB loader background and no drive activity. I waited 15 minutes, without anything changing, no access to the dvd drive or the hard drive. I can move the pointer around, but no button does anything and I cannot turn it off, but by holding power for 4 seconds. This happened with 4 different games, which play through normal means on this wii.
What I found out about my system (again I'm new ):
- cios38rev14 (how do I get this number from my Wii? I copied it from messies guide, which I used, so I guess that must be the version I've got.)
- Homebrew 1.0.6 (IOS61 v21.29)
- USB Loader GX Rev929c (IOS249 (Rev14)), but I had first rev850 of USB Loader with the same problem.
- 2.5" USB drive which seems to works with USB loader connected to the right (outer) USB port.
I hope the information is all you need and thanks in advance for reading,
are those games of generic disc fm Ninty; and of PAL version ?
I just started having the same thing happen to me.... I insert disc and select install game..it flashes the window for a sec then disappears. I've tried several times and without a game in....what gives?
I can play downloaded games from the pc though
any advice? Soft-mod 4.2
the games are not the issue...because B4, you would click install without a disc in and ou would still get a prompt of some sort (please insert disc)...now when I try it flashes a screen very quickly
No one? Should I perhaps ask in the Dumping&Burning forum instead?
try deleting the USB Loader GX configuration file-it can get corrupted. It will be created the next time you start up USB Loader GX. By the way-on the USB Loader GX menu screen will be displayed your cIOS version-should read IOS248rev 14 or 17. If the config file recreation doesn;t fix the problem, are you using the latest revision of USB Loader GX? The current revisions are having a bad run right now. Try R919 as that seems a stable revision.
Or try a different loader and see if anything installs. That will tell you if is a hard drive problem or not.
Thanks for all your replies! robbobnbills solution finally worked for me, r899c just started ripping a game.
