  1. The only issue I have now is getting either the games to display properly, OR, perhaps my USB (FAT32) stick isn't recognized. I have 5 test games, already in WBFS format too. I went over my settings, and Loader GX tweaks here as well. What could I be missing? (PS: Spectacular tutorials by the way- already got 6 emulators working with easily 2500 of our old time favorites!)

  2. I installed the Nintendon't mod without issue. Got it working first try. HOWEVER, trying to install my games onto my 128GB thumb drive was met with a issue. Not only could I not install the games on the drive but I can no longer boot into Homebrew Channel anymore on Start up, (My wiimote is being dumb and chooses when it wants to work for me.)

    Nothing wants to work anymore and I'm running out of Ideas! I even tried to reinstall HBC, and install Nintendont again to no avail!!

  3. I got everything to work I was able to copy 2 of my games until I ran outta space on my USB drive so i plugged in my hard drive and I got a message on both of my wii consoles saying Error failed to initialize the USB storage device if someone can help me out I would really appreciate it

  4. Hello I have a question. I did it exactly as in the video and also put usb loader on it via your method. but if I now put games in wfbs files in the wfbs folder of my FAT32 usb stick and I plug it into the wii, it doesn't find any games when I open usb loader… I only get all channels in usb loader to see what is already on the wii … but I have set the option games in usb loader.

  5. I just want to say that beta53 freezed on me. I used beta52 and it all went smoothly ????
    Edit: it seems that it doesn't matter whether it's beta53 or beta52. I used sandisk ultra fit 128gb and that's the problem. When I changed to other drives or micro sd card adapter the loading game froze problem went away. It takes 4-5 seconds to load the game. I should mention I used sandisk 64 GB micro sd card with adapter and it's working fine.

  6. I downloaded The Homebrew channel and that worked fine

    When I got the SD card I went back through the process to format my SD card and download bootloader

    Now it freezes up and I can't get back into it

    Do I have to add that to my SD card on the computer now??

  7. why dont you cover any of the issues with drive compatibility? my samsung t7 is not working, the install process wont even begin after telling it to install. this is NOT as easy as you make it seem. a bit deceptive/negligent

  8. Thank you, yes I got it working! I'm really digging the Gamecube recently and I already have a wii laying around so this is perfect because you can use my original GC controllers too.

  9. have a wii downstairs and one upstairs all games on hard drive in basement would like to copy that to have upstairs instead of unplugging and going up and down the stairs
