USB Loader: Success/Failure with certain HDD types
Ok so I have 4 old IDE drives laying around and so I got a USB enclosure to try with my chipped Wii.
An IBM Deskstar 60gb has worked and I am using it as my Wii drive, I am rather impressed with this setup working.
As for a Hitachi 90gb and old Maxtor (20gb) they did not work. They would be recognized by the USB Loader but when I go to format it shows 4 Partitions and says that none of them can be formatted. If there is any insight on this I'd be interested to hear about it.
Try formatting them FAT32 with the PC first.
I have has success with quite a few older drives I have lying around. Ranging from a really old Compaq 2Gb drive through to a Western Digital 320Gb.
