    Soft mod'd wii followed correct walkthrough, but still black screen on wii USB backup

    So yeah, the title basically says it all... I've completely followed shadowsonic's softmod guide and i'm quite sure that the 2.5" USB 2.0 hard drive reader that i'm using isn't an issue because everything else seems to work fine on it... i haven't tried burning the wii game onto a DVD-R yet though because i'm not sure if DL DVD-R's will work and i don't particularly want to buy one if it's not...

    ok, that all being said, i can play backed up gamecube games using NeoGamma from DVD-R if i change the options in the gc menu from MIOS to internal and with the reloader set to yes

    ... i'm assuming that just because the gamecube backups work doesn't mean that the Wii (on dvd) games will?

    also, there are no wii ISO shrinker's are there? because the games seem to be about 8.7gb when i back them up onto my HDD

    There should only be a few games that give you a file size that large, SMBB, Metroid Prime Trilogy, Metroid: Other M, and Samurai Warriors 3 are the only ones I know of. If other games are going that, you may have another issue to address first. Either way, I see that you did not post which USB Loader you are using. Try to use CFG USB Loader v60, see if that fixes your issue. I also recommend using a FAT32 setup, and in that guide it will show you how to make your ISO files into wbfs files, which act like scrubbed ISOs, in that they take up less HDD space.

    Edit: Post a syscheck if possible.

    Give credit where credit is due. If it helps you, click "thanks" on ANY guide I link.

    On some games through Wiiflow (the usb loader I use) I would get a black screen when not loading with the proper iOS (some games require specific iOS to load). There is a guide by Krank Here that might be able to help you if it's a specific game.

    Depending on the USB Loader you are using (we need more information) You can change the Boot/Standard in the settings to iOS 222. Then if a game doesn't work you can change it to iOS 249 in the individual settings. That's what I had to do to get Wiiflow to properly work.

    okay, seeing as i wasn't specific enough, i've halfed my USB hard drive (one part's WBFS and the other's fat32) the hard drive is a toshiba 30gb IDE drive (taken from a toshiba satellite laptop) the converter i'm using is a "USB2.0 to IDE & SATA cable" (that's all it says... no brand name or anything)
    The game i've copied is twilight princess for the wii using USB loader GX and then put it onto my computer through WBFS Manager (that's how i got the file size of 8gb because through WBFS manager it only says 1.08gb)

    the other boot loaders i've used to try and boot wii games are wii flow, Neogamma and uloader ... the all do the same thing :/

    at the moment i'm going to try with a Western digital 2.5" 300gb passport hard drive to see if i can get a different result, but i doubt it'll change anything...

    also, because it was asked for, here's the syscheck

    Spoiler
