    Usb help (still)

    My last thread was closed, but this is not a NSMB question, this is about loading from the usb. If this is in the wrong section, feel free to move it, but please don't lock it because I need help. Here's the situation, again.

    I'm trying to play a game from my USB HDD (60gb iPod video) using USB Loader GX and get the black screen when loading the game. The first game I tried was New Super Mario Bros PAL (with force NTSC on), which I understand has problems, but then I tried Animal Crossing NTSC (which is not in the problematic game list), and the same thing happens. I'm pretty sure I did everything right and that my IOS are up to date, but here is my sys check just in case.

    "DOP-Mii Report"
    "Region", North America (U)
    "Hollywood Version", 0x21
    "Wii Unique DeviceID", 125078758

    Are you sure your IPOD is marked to active? If you would've searched IPOD and USB Loader GX, you would've found this thread http://www.wiihacks.com/wiihacks-new...e-my-ipod.html where I give the following instructions:

    If you guy's want you can try this, maybe it will help... this is windows 7 or vista, I haven't done it on XP.

    After formatting in FAT32 Goto a Dos Prompt, type diskpart Enter

    list disk [enter] -> note your usb disk number
    select disk # [enter]
    list partition [enter] -> note your partition number
    select partition # [enter]
    active [enter]
    This solved the other poster's issue.... I hope it helps you.

    Thanks, I'll check that out. I didn't think it was my ipod, as the Wii read it and showed the games, but I was trying to make sure it was active and make partitions, and I reformatted it to NTFS.

    Even as NTFS, partition has to be marked active and I don't believe the standard windows disk management software will allow you to do that to the IPOD. I've had same issues where usb loader could see the drive but couldn't load anything from it because the partition was not set active.

    I hope this works out for you.

    It does not need to be set as active to work with a USB loader. Just needs to be Primary. I would try a different USB Hdd device to see if it is the fact that you are using an IPOD.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    I looked at the post, but it didn't really help. I'm on XP, and I got to w: (my ipod) but I don't know what you mean by the rest of it. I tried in EASEUS Partition Master, but it doesn't show my W: drive, only my C: and my other internal HDD. I'll check around online and see if there's another way to partition the iPod.

    Krank: I don't have another external HDD, but I've tried a 1gb usb stick a while ago and I could watch a video from it. I saw in the compatible HDD thread that the ipod will work, so I'm trying it.

    I can't create a new partition or mark it as active in the Disk Manager in My Computer either.
