    Recently, I have run into an issue which is causing my wii games to not boot correctly via portibilizemii.
    i have used and followed the tutorial that was shown on the download page and also tried formating and reinstalling, but it brings me to the same problem. My GC games work just fine, but I suspect the issue which may or may not be linked is that when i boot the emunand, it also loads to a black screen. My emulators also dont show up and when i open up te emulator section in the UI it tells me that the 'the emu.dat file is old, try refreshing the cache'

    - i am using the wifi version of portabalize mii

    - i have tried runninng different region roms and they dont work

    -my usb is a 128 gb sandisk, 32FAT format, 32k clusters (i have used other usb types but the issue persists)

    -my wii is a C/RVL-CPU-01 (dont know if that helps)

    - it is untrimmed and i have only removed the disk drive

    If anyone has any ideas please help because i would like to make sure my software is fully able to work before i start making my portable.

    Thanks.

    Change the region to japanese when downloading portablizemii,copy to usb root. And copy syn file from real nand&copy mii from real nand in channel of portablizemii, for usb compability, you‘d better use the disk below 32gb.

    If that doesn't work I'd suggest a different flash drive, SanDisk drives are notorious for not playing nice with PM

    Only change the file on usb, no need to reinstall portablizemii

    Do not format wii, unless you have to

    OMG, thank u so much, after trying both methods simultaneously it worked!

    I cannot express my happiness enough, thank you, you frickin' geniuses

    btw, the usb i am currently using is a little low on space, do you guys have recomandations for USB of 128 GB,the one i used for the fix is a little laggy.
    I was thinking of a samsung, as I saw so many others use it for thier own portables

    It seems I have found a new issue
    I loaded NSMBW on portabilize mii and it worked
    then i load skyward sword and it loads NSMBW agian,
    any ideas on a fix?
    Am still using the laggy usb, new one has not arrived yet. Could it have to do with that?

    Have you tested the skyward sword rom in something like Dolphin? I know it sometimes does that with bad roms, though it could also be the bad USB drive

    Yeah it's probably the usb, because the rom works on dolphin, but I will also try the rom on its own,
    And now it shows the neek2o loading and then boots back to portabilize mii, what do i do

    the same thing has started to happen with my new USB, NSMBW works perfectly and portabalize mii no longer lags as the USB is higher quality,
    but sll my other games still boot to the neek2o loader and then just boot to the start screen.

    I have noticed that it is only happening with high volume games like skyward sword or sonic colours (4 gb roughly)
    I have also now tried to boot emunand but it just black screens.

    What do i do ?

    this is what my games look like when i use TBD to make the readable by portabilizemii, they are not on the usb, there are .wbfs files inside like the ones lower
    wbsss.PNG
    this is what my usb looks like, it only has skyward sword because i was seeing if it worked without NSMBW
    usb.PNG wbfssssss.PNG inside.PNG
    I arranged the files based on the requirements
    even though skyward sword has 2 .wbfs files and doesn't boot, so is the case for all the other games that don't boot and they all have 1 file inside

    Yeah, you've done it wrong there mate. The files shouldn't be in individual subfolders, you just put all the .wbfs files together in the wbfs folder.

    It's demonstrated here https://bitbuilt.net/forums/index.php?threads/setting-up-wii-and-gamecube-games.391/
