    Ca WiiFlow "disc_setUSB failed" w/ 4.3u

    Alright, I've resisted and resisted to post this on the forums, only because I hope it hasn't been previously posted. I don't want to be the noob who comes out and posts a question that's found on the forums, but alas, I can't find the answer...

    I've softmodded using Mauifrog's "Softmod Any Wii" guide and the Smash Stack exploit. I've installed WiiFlow 2.2 249. MOST of my games seem to be working okay, but a handful aren't.

    New Super Mario Bros.
    Kirby Epic Yarn
    Mario Kart
    (perhaps a couple more, I haven't tried all of my games since I've started ripping them)

    These select few titles specifically have been coming up with the error "disc_setUSB failed" when I try to launch them. Guitar Hero 6, just makes the screen go black when I launch it.

    Then finally, on a side note, is it normal that WiiFlow freezes occasionally when I try to boot it up. (20-30% of the time) I have to force restart.

    Sorry to be a thorn in the side with all of these questions, but I'd appreciate any direction. No guides seem to address this problem for only a few of the games on the HDD. Generally people encountering the error appear to have it across the whole drive.

    Thanks for the help!

    There are a number of situations where that error message pops up: using an older cIOS with either a FAT32 or NTFS formatted HDD, running the games from either FAT32 or NTFS but with a multiple partition HDD, some versions of WiiFlow were a bit prone to the this intermittent problem, and of course, the HDD might not be compatible enough. Not enough info to drill down to a best guess here. Try using another USB Loader-try a recent version of configureable USB Loader and see if both problems resolve. Expeiment with loadinga problem game rip from a different IOS such as 224 for example.

    Check the USB Drive compatibility list here to see if your HDD is compatible. If it's been awhile since you softmodded - FAT32 and NTFS formatted HDDs need cIOS rev 17 - check the appropriate HDD guide on this site to see current recommendations. and of course clean those darn game discs to try and reinstall-you need to uninstall before reinstalling.

    As you can see that USB dis error is not very specific. Good luck.

    Thanks for the tips. I'll give another USB loader a shot and let you know how that goes.

    I only soft-modded last week assuming that Mauifrog's "soft-mod any wii" guide was up to date. Am I wrong?

    Her's a noob-master question for you... How do I properly load a different cIOS. I have MMM as my manager, and there is an IOS loading feature. Is this where I load it from or do I do it under the individual game settings in Wii flow?

    Noobishly yours,

    If you followed maui's guide last week you are up to date with everything.

    Those games you listed can be found here:
    http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-gu...solutions.html
    They need "special" attention..

    and you can change your IOS the specific game runs off of in wiiflow..

    FYI I use CFG v60 222-mload and all those games are flawless on my system.. the CFG is a little older but it works great! no issues. check out this guide:

    Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here

    Thanks for the additional tips Shift_Lock. I was able to get 2 of my games working by just changing the IOS in the game settings to 222 and applying the GECKO crack. Not even sure what that does, but the combo of the two seemed to help.

    In the end though not all of my games were so easily remedied. So I decided to start from fresh and reformat my drive. I was formatted originally as NTSF, but decided to try out WBFS, formatting and partioning first with EASEUS Partition Manager as FAT32. Then loading the FAT32 freshly formatted drive in WiiBackup Manager and formatting as WBFS. All of my problematic games appear now to be working! Even my ISO backups, when loaded and installed poperly through the game manager.

    That appears to be the end to the "disc_setUSB failed" error that I was faced with. I've got a couple other game glitches to sort out, but I'll start a new thread if I can't locate the solutions in the forums. Thanks again for your help!

    Perfect! Thanks Narse. My Guitar Hero Aerosmith was the only game left that I was having a problem with. So under the game settings if I change the IOS to 223 that should fix it? And when you say IOS 37/38 merged, how would I set that for that individual game? Or does it do that automatically when I switch the IOS to be 223 under the game settings in WiiFlow?
