    Unhappy HDD causing Freezing

    So I have a Western Digital 2TB My Book Essential (WDBACW0020HBK-NESN) which is a USB 3.0/2.0 formatted to FAT32

    no matter what USB loader I use Freezes when any of them try to access my HDD, not to mention that whenever any Loader could detect the HDD it would list no games or say there is no games on the HDD.

    I have tried loading each USB Loader with and without the HDD plugged in, no difference was made in any of the tries.

    I have seen the HDD on every compatibility list that i have seen as in working condition but not so much for me.

    Here's my SYSCheck details.

    I actually have the exact same drive, tweaked out a friends Wii on this usb 3.0 drive about three months ago. I HATE that drive, because it kept crashing the Wii in WiiMC, but the loader was fine (I used Config). Your syscheck looks perfect (actually it is identical to that last system I did for my friend).

    Try this,

    First get a usb thumbdrive (pendrive) and format it fat32 using fat32format.exe (put the .exe in your c:/windows directory)
    make the directory WBFS and put a game in it using something like Wii Backup Manager, or whatever

    Can you play the game now without any freezing ?


    If you can, then delete all the partitions on your new usb 3.0 drive from Disk Managment on your Windows computer, recreate the partition, format it with fat32format.exe
    make the folder wbfs on the new fat32 drive
    put a game in it using something like Wii Backup Manager
    see if the game will run, and your system will not freeze

    Ensure WHATEVER loader you are using (I use Config a tonne), that it is using base 56. For example IOS249(base 56) d2x-7-final. If it using base 55, it WILL NOT see your usb drive. Sucks but true. Let me know how your usb 3.0 works out, WiiMC and usb 3.0 don't seem to be a happy mix, at least when I was testing with D2x v7-final a few months back. I back rev'ed to WiiMC version 1.1.9 as per Grandpa1956. Been fine since, zero WiiMC crashes after that, but no problems with the usb loaders. All the emulators worked ok as well, as long as the format was fat32. Mighty Channels originally was not happy with the usb 3.0 drive, can't remember what I did to fix that, but it was the first time Mighty Channels has ever farted on me, but it did on that drive... can't remember the resolution. Sorry, it was three months ago. Anyways, we are talking about usb loaders.

    ok I did that, i just used my old 4gig Sandisk.

    CFG Loader played the game for about 5 minutes before the music cut out and ultimately stopped working when i got to a loading screen.

    WiiFlow gave me a Code Stack

    Neogamma let me play with Zero Problem so far. so I switched over to the HDD, when I set to Mount WBFS it did the normal freezing. I partitioned to make the Active drive 500GB with FAT32. but still nothing.
