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

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)
