    Hi, when I installed PortablizeMii on my Wii it freezes at the "Configuration file created successfully" page and I don't know what to do at this point. Please any help is appreciated. Thanks

    I need a lot of help. I don't know what to do with my Wii now.

    Have you tried using a different USB? Postloader is a bit picky about what devices it works with.

    Shank found a couple on amazon that work. The Samsung Fit 128GB and Lexar Jumpdrive 128GB. other than that, you'll just have to test a heap of USB drives until you find one that works. I own 8 or so assorted drives and none of them work properly, had to order the Lexar one.

    Thanks but I will probably go with the 64gb version since I am quite on a budget doing this project.

    Shank only tested the 128GB one, so the 64GB isn't guaranteed to work.

    well this might be a silly question so can you tell him to test out the 64gb version? Sorry about that

    I don't think Shank has the 64GB, and I doubt he'd buy it just to test it.

    Wait so do you know why it's freezing? Or just like you said postloader is picky with USB drives?

    I'm afraid I don't know why. I had the same issue with my drives as well. Postloader is just really picky.

    Got any info on the drive you have? I will admit postloader is pretty picky on the drives it decides to work with, but sometimes it's just a tricky formatting issue that windows doesn't admit to (I assume you formatted your drive with windows, not mac/linux). If you are running on a mac or linux machine I can offer some guidance that may help (I'm not sure how it works on windows, I haven't looked into how to do it)

    What does it do when you put it in the computer? Sounds like it's just trying (and failing) to read the flash drive

    Well it reads it but when I try postloader it freezes at "Configuration file created successfully" is there any fix on that?
