4.3u soft w/ Indiana Jones
Got some emus to work and some other apps, but running ISO images from a USB is posing more of a challenge. Would it just be easier to burn them to DVD-R and play my backups? I simply cannot get the wii to recognize the USB drives (tried two different ones).
When I select bootmii....after slecting the homebrew channel the screen goes black and the DVD tray's light just flashes blue. It also causes the controller to unsync. When installing the bootmii I opted for the IOS and not the top option which I think was "bootmii2" or something to that affect.
What have I done wrong? I see others are having a very similar issue.

There are guides on how to configure usb loaders. I suggest using fat32.
and a HDD compatibility list
If you have a newer Wii it won't be able to read dvd-r.
Make sure you have the bootmii folder on the root of your sd card. If you don't have this folder, download and run the HackMii Installer v0.8 in homebrew channel. Select "bootmii..." then "prepare sd". Now exit and try loading bootmii from homebrew channel.

I launch homebrew then hit the "Home" button then select "LaunchBootMii" then I get the black screen flashing dvd tray light and unsync'ed remote. This is on a card with:
sd:\bootmii\(contents from the Hackmii Installer v.08)
Now when I select Launch Bootmii I get a screen with 4 icons in the middle that are in the shape of sd cards. The one on the left has "Wi" then the Homebrew channel" then an sd card and the one on the right has an image of 2 gears. At the bottom of the screen on the left it has "BootMii" and on the bottom-right is has 2007-2010 Team Twizzers"
The controller will not do anything. When I press a button the light on the controller simplt flashes and the Wii does nothing.
What is the prob? Any help is appreciated!
How do I control the BootMii menu without a WiiMote?
Use a GC pad in port 1 to navigate the menu. If you don't have one, you can use the Power button to cycle through options in the menu, and Reset to select. You just need to briefly press each button.

definite thanks for that!
You stated earlier that newer Wiis will not read DVD-R. I am assuming this includes the 4.3u? I need the ultimate noob's guide to playing ISOs from USB...this is killing me. The main thing I am trying to achieve is to play backups. Would prefer playing from DVDs but it looks like I will have to play form the USB drive.
I do appreciate the help!

yup, you better play ISOs with usbhdd at a "newer" 4.3u Wii.
unlike playing with DVDs, you don't have to worry about game settings (out-of-region) each time you play. With Cfg or WiiFlow, pre-settings are saved (SD or FAT32 partition)-- just select the game and click to play. if not usbHDD available, use a 8GB flash drive. capable to hold 2~4 games.
Save your planet by not burning any more DVD, wouldn't you ?
am trying neogamma now nothing else has worked so far
I cannot get neogamma to work either. What is it that I am missing? No GC controller. Is that a must have? Or something else.
If you have a new wii then it won't read backups. Use this guide to play backups from a hdd.
