    Usb 3.0??

    So i just got a new WD hard drive and it is the new usb 3.0. I formatted and loaded games fine but when I plug it into my wii and load up USB Loader GX it wont load. Has anybody ran into this problem?

    More than likely you have problems other than your USB speed. The Wii will only support 2.0 but 3.0 is supposed to be backwards compatible so it should be a non-issue.

    Possible Solutions...

    1. Put the USB in the Wii's Bottom USB Slot
    2. WBFS Format It, Then Re-Store Games
    3. Check Drive Space, To Know If You Can Even Store Games To Begin With.
    4. Get A Different Loader: UsbLoaderGX, Configurable Loader, uLoader, Wiiflow.
    5. Check If Your ISO(Game) isnt Broken Or Corrupted
    6. Get A 2.0 USB Drive

    It is WBFS format. What do you mean by Re-Store games? USB Loader GX wont even start up when the hdd is plugged in

    I Mean Re-Store, Just Add Your Games Again.

    "1. Put the USB in the Wii's Bottom USB Slot
    2. WBFS Format It: (To Make It Read Your USB Drive Through A USBLoader), Then Re-Store Games
    3. Check Drive Space, To Know If You Can Even Store Games To Begin With.
    4. Get A Different Loader: UsbLoaderGX, Configurable Loader, uLoader, Wiiflow.
    5. Check If Your ISO(Game) isnt Broken Or Corrupted
    6. Get A 2.0 USB Drive"

    If It Doesnt Work Period, Go Through Steps 1, 2 ,4, 6 in that order.

    Lightbulb Same issue with 1TB WD wbfs formatted USB 3.0 external HD....

    games show up in the game manager, everything checks out the same as usual, but usbloaderGX just doesnt want to regester the HD as though a few 3.0 support options could possibly be patched in the near future if this glitch proceeds. Will try other loader after i settup SD card and let u know.
