    Skylanders USB Loader GX issue

    Hi, i was wondering if any of you would be kind enough to help me with an issue i'm haveing with my 4.3e modded wii. I have been playing my games through an external hd and have ben able to play original discs aswell. I bought my boy the skylanders spyro game. I unplugged the external hard drive and plugged in the wireless usb detector for the skylanders portal. The game works fine and sees the skylanders portal etc, but when i plugged the hard drive back in, the usb loader no longer works. it begins to load, then displays a short message saying something like reconfiguring IOS58.... etc? then the screen goes blank and the power light on the external hard drive cuts out. Can you tell me what is wrong and how to fix this please. many thanks for any help and your time taken to help me

    You have now made 3 posts regarding this issue, if u had read the site rules u would realise u have broken them, please read them now - site rules

    I have left this thread open for u and deleted your other posts, please be patient if someone can assist u they will do as soon as they can, thank you for your cooperation on this matter.

    This is a problematic game at the moment and I do not know if a solution exists, what i can tell u is if u have an upto date mauifrog softmod and priiloader set to block online and disc updates u can unplug your hard drive and plug the accessory in and play the game from disc until u have been given a solution.

    With the update-WiU1.1 patched the backup iso.
    USB-HDD as always right and the portal left.
    WII-turn, usbloader start, game start, wait until it asks for the portal on.
    Portal-on and start playing on.
    Allow start the portal, until the game asks. When the portal is already on, when you start the game, it will not work.

    Hello andHappy New Year All,
    I to have a softmodded 4.3 wii with an external hd and I love it. On Christmasday my son and I had the same problem as everyone else trying to use the newSkylanders game with usb loader gx, or any other loader people may be using.The problem is when you connect the little wifi usb hub from the skylandersportal of power to the extra usb port on the back of the wii it will not workor sink as long as the external hd is plugged into the other usb port. Now thatwas big problem for us because the cd drive on our wii is broken, that's why Ihad to modd the wii and put all the games (+the new skylanders) on an externalhd in the 1st place. So yes I read all the stuff about how to change the cISOfrom 245 to 223. So I did and It WORKED!!! ...orso I thought Afterall that reading and tweaking I thought we had solved the problem until thenext day when my son told me that at a certon point in the game the portal keepturning off. So I took a look for myself and it was true. Now what
    !#@%!! - I knew it was not the batteriesor a sink issue, but what? Something keeps turning over and over in my mind...why did wii choose to use a wifi usb device and not just connect a usb cablefrom the portal to the wii??? My next step was to box up the skylanders gameand return it to the store. I exchanged it for the PCversion of the skylanders game - why...because it has usb cableconnected to the portal. The Xbox version has a cabled portal but Xbox willonly work with Xbox. The 3DS version also has a usb cabled portal but theportal is too small for two players. But when I connected the PC skylandersportal (with the usb cable) to the back of my son’s wii to my surprise theportal light came on. Next I started up the usb loader GX - it started!!!, nextI clicked on the game - IT STARTED!!!, The PC skylanders portal works on thewii 100% no problems at all YEAH!!!
