    wii wont see external HDD, help please!

    Good night dear fellows,

    I followed a guide here to mod my little cousin's wii so he could play his games without destroying the disks, the issue is that he got quite a few of those this christmas and when deciding to import those off to his external HDD he messed up the system.

    The wii itself runs game discs and all homebrew works. the issue is that cfg loader doesnt recognize the external HDD and wii flow recognizes the games but wont load them.

    I ran SYSchek, here is the result:

    SysCheck appears in order. You sure you're plugging it into the correct port? Hard to gauge why works on yours and not on his. No SysCheck from yours to compare it to. Certain USB 3.0 devices cause issues; usually a later beta cIOS fixes them. Is it externally powered or powered by the Wii? 2.5" or 3.5" device?

    Its a 2.0 USB self powered hdd connected to the correct port, in any case I tried them both, it's a 2.5 inch drive. As far as my syscheck I will do that as I get home tonight. Could you please point me to as to how to update the cios (I'm really a beginner as you can already see).

    Thank you kindly for your patiente and help

    And this exact controller and drive (enclosure/drive) works on another Wii without issue? The SysCheck you previously provided is correct, as is the cIOS. If you want to provide the SysCheck off the other device it works on, by all means.
