    Ca Issues Detecting USB Hard Drive

    Well it has been a decently long and frustrating day for me trying to softmod my Wii with Homebrew and USB Loader GX loader.

    Unfortunately I should have done some more research before starting down this road. I followed the step by step directions from
    HighTeckMan's two youtube videos as I also have a newer black wii that comes with the motion plus controllers and no GC plugin ports.

    I have HB and USB loader GX installed as per the videos and separately installed + setup Priiloader. For some reason even though I followed the video step by step with no issues, bootmii did not install and the USB loader only seems to recognize my USB HDD (1 tb Seagate Backup Plus) when it feels like it. I have the HDD partitioned with a FAT32 setup as the primary and active drive. I also formatted with WBSF manager that drive. Im not sure why GX loader only recognized the drive and loaded into the game selection screen maybe 2 out of what felt like 50 attempts. In the attempts that it actually loaded I manage to backup my copy of SM Party 9 and run it without the game disk - Yay! Now the frustrating part is the GX loader does not consistently recognize the drive and when it does appears to freeze in the "Loading.." screen before the game selection screen.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to why GX loader may be doing this and can suggest a fix?

    Any help would be much appreciated. I'm at my wits end.

    I'm surprised that didn't get auto-moderated. We don't allow linking of external guides. We have our own set of guides that we provide and support. So if you want support from our site, you should look at our guides and run through them first to see if it solves your problems.

    We also do not recommend using WBFS. FAT32 or NTFS is recommended (with FAT32 being preferred). The main modding guide is Softmod Any Wii guide.
