    Homebrew has the option to read from SD Card or USB - use the options to read from USB and see if it picks the drive up (if it detects the drive it will let you select USB)

    FAT32 is primary
    1 NTFS is primary
    1 NTFS is Logical

    something is wrong this HDD is compatible but will not communicate with my wii 4.2u any help will be appriciated.

    Pretty pointless at this moment if the Wii can't even see the drive yet.

    how do you tell homebrew to load from the usb?

    I put a game on the hard drive and now it can not even see it so I think Im putting the cart in front of the horse. I need to set homebrew to read first then I will try the game again, so if anyone can help me on setting homebrew to load from the usb I would appreciate it....

    FAT32 is primary
    1 NTFS is primary (Active)
    1 NTFS is Logical

    FAT32 is supposed to be the active drive - so change that for now.

    When you are in HBC, press 1, if it can see your USB disk it will be the same colour as your Internal SD Slot, try pressing it and see if anything will load.

    I still do not quite understand why you have formatted your drive into the partitions you have done, is there a reason for this choice?

    I chose to partition it this way because the FAT32 for the homebrew apps, 1 partition for the WBFS format for games (I can not figure out how to put games on without using WBFS), and the last partition for spare apps or movies or what ever. I have a 2 TB HDD and I know now that all USB loader can only handle 500 games so I do not need the whole HDD for games so I thought I would utilize it better this way.

    Is all the drive for the sole use of your Wii?

    It could be, when I bought this HDD I was going to back up alot of games and thought the bigger the better. Now with the news that USB Loader can only handle 500 games I thought I could use it for other things also but now that I can not get it to work I am going to make it what ever possible so I can get these games possible.

    Ok did some tests, the wii is not picking up on the HDD so I tried putting the apps on a flash stick and it saw that. I know now that the wii can not see the HDD. So what suggestions do you have for me? With as big as this drive is it takes forever to format the whole thing as FAT32, quick format does not give me an option to format it as FAT32 because I am running XP on my home computer.

    Is there something I can put on the HDD so it does not fall asleep? not sure if this is causing the issue but I have tried plugging and unplugging to get to work but the wii just does not see the HDD.
