    Wii only can detect HDD, but no games inside it

    OK, i just hacked my wii based by guide in this website. But, when I connect external HDD into wii, it detects the HDD, but no games inside it. I put 2 games inside it(iso format) but not detected. SO, what should i do? Thx. My Wii is SM4.3U SMB++

    HDD is western digital 1terabyte, ntfs format, by windows. - dont have any partition on hdd so theres a plenty kind of file in one disk drive, cos i borrow it from my friend to check if hack work is working, but i plan to buy new hdd if it sure will work. Is it the reason why wii cant detect my games file?

    Solved by using wbfs formatted. I noticed that ntfs formatted won't work at all

    Glad it is working for you now BUT "ntfs formatted won't work at all" is FALSE. My entire game partition is ntfs and works 98.23% (I did the math). Its probably more related to the file type the games are in. Next time, try formatting the hdd ntfs and adding games (converted from ISO to wbfs) to it via wii backup manager n it should work nearly 100% just some fyi
