I think I will do that though
I can download acronis but maybe mini tool sounds a little broad of a spectrum to find
I think I might try my iPod again with the games if it was easeus's fault but like you guys said you at least got something and the greatest thing I've gotten is the wii turning off
my western digital 1tb works perfectly and have had no unexpected compatibility issues since I got it. had a toshiba 500gb that would crap out when the drive became inactive. even with that I had to play with the formatting before I got it to work. on easeus I remember it not being in the standard tools that pop up but something rather where I had it unformatted and changed some settings in the toolbar then I could format it properly.
before that I remember checking the cluster size inside of easeus and having it still read 64k even though it said it was formatting to 32k. if you got dml to work on an sd card (even if it was buggy) then it's most likely not a problem with dios mios and rather either the drive compatibility or the format.
Alright then since I really don't like easeus in the first place I'm probably gonna just get acronis I'll play with it later and get back to you but I won't be home until like 930 tonight
ALright i just installed Acronis and it turns out that Easeus was doing what it was supposed to all along and everything checked out perfectly but it doesnt work
I can't believe im saying this but im officially calling my HDD...(sniffle)...Incompatible......
Don't give up just yet. I would really recommend you check out 'ModMii' - you can try updating your softmods and see if any are out of date. I like most people followed a guide and it was quite old so using ModMii to update my softmods helped fix a few issues I was having.

it will work but i would like to make it better i might try modmii
i didnt follow a guide for softmodding my wii as i have done it like 3 times before(1st mistake)
i kinda just downloaded what i needed from random places as i needed it(2nd mistake)
