    WD My Passport 2TB Not working - worked with previous external

    Hello,

    My old 1TB external kicked the bucket and I was forced to get a new one.

    The 2TB My Passport does NOT have an external power supply, and takes only from the Wii in the USB port.

    When I try to load up games through the Configurable USB Loader that has always worked with the new hard drive, it gets to
    "IOS 249 /// IOS Blocked" and just freezes on this screen.

    One other peculiar thing i noticed, when choosing a partition
    P#1 1590gb NTFS
    P#2 290.6 EXTEND
    P#3 -------------
    P#4 -------------
    L#5 290.6 WBFS

    I only made the one WBFS partition, but it seems to show up twice, once under #2 as EXTEND and the other as L(?)#5 WBFS

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Issue resolved, L#5 stands for LOGICAL the P's were PRIMARY.

    I accidentaly made it into a LOGICAL drive, which is incompatible with the Wii. Reformatting it into PRIMARY WBFS fixed that right up
