    wii freezes when using USB HDD

    Hi, just got a USB HDD, got 2 games on it to test.

    1st loaded through 'config usb loader' but froze after a bit of going through menus, tried again and froze just after the game title menu.

    2nd game wouldnt load, loader went to load it but got black screen and froze.

    rebooted wii again and once i selected the loader the CFG screen froze??

    wii menu is fine, booting from dvd is fine.
    loader loads and operates fine without HDD connected (all but loading a game).

    Only got this to try and get RapStar to detect the mic! lol

    Any info?

    Its a drive I made, its and old 10G HDD from a past PC in a HDD enclosure; if that makes any difference? (Just to get Rapstar working remember! lol)
    Using the (looking from the back) right hand USB socket.

    1st game is Michael Jackson exp (Works with DVD through neogamma)
    2nd game is Rapstar (works with DVD through neogamma but no mic detected)


    Cheers

    I would suggest trying wiiflow, trying the different versions, I have found the loaders to work very differently. As I have yet to find a non issue situation. I started with a loader that froze after any sort of game end, including mini game that was USB Loader GX. Switched to Wii Flow 2.1 first and need to unplug/replug in my drive during Wiiflow boot, but wiiflow 2.2 crashes when I try to play a game. Good luck

    THanks,
    ive now installed hermes v5.1 202 & 224, v4 222 & 223

    cios38 rev 17

    ios236

    tried with u loader, usb gloader gx, cfg usb loader, now i'll try wiiflow.

    Now it only crashes when i attempt to load the game. i can move around the loader fine. Just get the back screen when i come to try and load.

    Rapstar still loading fine from DVD (just no mic detection)


    Cheers

    ciosx rev 19,
    Hermes 202, 222, 223,224

    4.2e

    Using loaders:
    CFG USB loader
    USB Loader GX
    WiiFlow

    Tried with 10g external usb HDD
    & 32G SD pluged into a usb adapter.

    Both with same results.

    I can select game, I see the info to use the wii remote strap, press A and then BLACK SCREEN! AArrgghh!

    But the Rapstar boots fine from DVD? Doing my head in! lol

    Anything anyone can advise me to do?

    I've found that my best combo is cIOSx rev20b with base 57, and hermes v5.1 installed with this guide.
    I know the guide says to use v4 for 222/223, but I installed all with v5.1. Also I use WiiFlow 2.1. Hope that helps.

    With regards to the CIOSX REV20B does it mater what slot I install it to?
