    New Hard Drive (USB3) Usb Loader GX freezes - Anyone else having same issue?

    Hey,

    My old Hard Drive crashed, I got a new one which is a Western Digital My Passport 500 GB USB3/2 (States that it's 100% Compatible with USB2).

    My setup:
    Hard Drive:
    1) WBFS parition with games on it
    2) Partition to have theme files, disc images and app -> Fat32

    My Wii:
    I mainly use cIOS 249 rev21 (Base: 57)
    and cIOS 250 rev21 (Base: 56)
    For playing my games.

    I use a channel forwarder to load USB Loader GX 2.0 from the USB Drive.

    The problem is that using the new Hard Drive, all games will randomly freeze or the USB Loader screen will say "waiting for slow hard drive"

    The errors are random and have no patterns.

    I am just wondering if anyone else is having issues with the WD My Passport USB3/2 series hard drives. Or do I have the incorrect IOS / USB Loader installed? Can anyone recommend a cIOS or Loader that would work with the Hard Drive?

    I have tried cIOS Rev 21 with a 56/57/58 base and they all produce the same issue.

    Using the same wii and plugging in a USB2 Hard Drive (with the same partitions), works perfectly.

    Totally agree with emuhack.
    CFG is the way to go, very user friendly. easy to use, easily updatable, and easy to change IOS's etc. Some games that are freezing on me, I just change the IOS, easy as pie!!!!
    CFG all the way lol

    Also, you can have a forwarder for this too.

    Hi,

    I have a similar problem with the new Western Digital My Passport 500 GB USB3/2 HDD drive.
    It freezes at the "loading..." screen. So it detects the HD, but cannot read the data??

    I think I have USB loader GX 1.0.

    i will try the CFG loader this evening...

    I haven't been on this site but only a few months, but have read a few places that the USB 3.0/2.0 Passports were giving issues. Would taking it back and getting the same drive, but 2.0 only be an option? That's what I would do. All the Wii's I have done for friends and family (close to 10) I have used WD Passports (2.0 only) and all work perfect with CFG Loader, GX, and WiiFlow. I always make sure they don't get the 2/3.0 to avoid issues like this. But if someone finds a solution, I'm sure many would appreciate it.

    I ended up returning my USB2/3 Passports for a cheap USB2 HDD (ended up being 40 dollars cheaper) and it's been perfect with USB Loader GX and WiiFlow and CFG Loader every since. I think the problem is with the USB3. I don't think the CIOS249 Rev21 supports them. I tried CFG Loader with the USB3 Passport before I returned them and it crashed too randomly. My advice is to buy a USB2 HDD only for now.

    Having a similar issue, I'm on softmod 4.3 using CFG Loader Version 60 and a western digital 2.0/3.0 1 TB Hard Drive formatted in WBFS..Works fine for me but games that require to load on a different IOS like 222 or 223 wont load? Games like Guitar Hereo 5 or American Idol, anything with a microphone that requires you to load the game on IOS 223 wont load..freezes. Ive tried loading them on different IOS's and nothing, anything loaded on IOS 249 works great. Anyone that comes accross anything of help that would be great, otherwise I think like everyone else I'll go back to the 2.0 hard drive.
