    Loader wont load games off of external hard drive

    Hi everyone,

    I have softmodded my 4.3u Wii, and I followed all the steps outlined, and have the homebrew channel up and running with awesome apps.

    I have both USB Loader GX and Configurable USB Loader as channels.

    I used the Wii backup manager on my NTFS external hard drive.

    I can backup games using USB Loader GX, and even downloaded the cover art. However, any time I try to play any of the games by clicking on the spinning disk, it just boots me back to the wii menu!

    Please help, as I have exhausted all efforts here.

    Thanks kindly!

    You say you have both USB Loaded GX and CFG Loader, have you tried playing them from CFG Loader? Make sure you are loading the right CIOS, most games work off 248 or 249.

    Hi again,

    Thank you for your reply.

    I have been running cios 249 and 250, and when I start the loader, this is the error message I get:

    [+] Booting wii game please wait...
    ERROR: cIOS249rev18, cIOS222v4, cIOS223v4, cIOS224v5 or higher requierd for starting games from a FAT partition!
    Upgrade IOS249 or choose a different IOS.
    set_frag: -128
    ERROR: SetWBFS: -128
    Press any button to exit...


    then it exits out to wii system menu

    Please any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    I realize that it is self explanatory, and I did upgrade using the rev 21, and now what it does is that it plays the ones that I already backed up myself, but it won't play any of the games that I didnt back up myself, i.e. ones that i transferred over from another hard drive, even though it recognizes the game, but every time i click to play, it restarts the wii

    Hi again,

    I was able to successfully play all the games, except Wii Sports Resort! for some reason every time I try to play it, it goes into the black screen and reboots to the system menu!

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance

    Thank you sir for all your help. I did that and the game finally loaded. However, one last (probably dumb) question, I actually don't have motionplus, will I be able to ever play the game? or I need to buy motionplus?
