    CFG USB Loader doesnt like 2TB HD

    I was using my 250GB External HD with CFG USB Loader and the games I played worked good no lag or freezing, but when I tried playing a game on my 2TB HD it'll start making clicking noises as scenes change, on Bully Scholarship somebody will talk during a scene then the HD will start clicking and the scene goes on but the last couple words that were said are repetitive until the scene is over and then it freezes, this doesn't happen at the exact same moment but pretty close, I almost have to skip scenes and rush gameplay so I can save which sucks, and in Mario Galaxy it'll stay on a black screen after I beat a level

    I thought having a bigger HD would be better, anybody have a solution?

    The list at WikiTemp has the iomega Prestige Desktop HD and it says that it works perfectly, I'll try plugging in the drive in the other port, though on my 250GB HD it only worked with the port on the left side when looking at the front of the Wii, but if that doesn't work then I don't know what to do, I'll keep trying anyway, the HD itself works fine I'm watching South Park on WiiMC right now, and it's formatted to NTSF so I don't get why it's failing to work good on CFG USB Loader

    Forget switching ports I can only use the one on the left side behind Slot B, still having same problems and I don't know why, do I have to change ios'? I don't want to start switching the ios a bunch on my own and mess it up more, my stupid 250GB HD plays games so crisp and then my beautiful 2TB iomega drive is making clicking noises during gameplay causing uncontrolled movements repetitive sounds and freezing when exiting levels, I really need some guidance on this one to make it play smooth

    It's because you are using NTFS. NTFS support was just recently added, so it is far from perfect. I suggest you make a FAT32 partiton for the Wii, and leave the rest as NTFS.

    Do I have to format my HD to partition it? I'm using a really slow laptop to transfer things back and forth and it takes so long

    No, just make part of the free space FAT32. There is a guide on here for that.

    Joostin u said it's because my HD is NTFS but so is my 250GB HD and that one worked no problems at all, so why my 2TB HD? and it's also on the WikiTemp list and it says the iomega Prestige drive works perfectly, obviously not all of them work perfectly but I thought that NTFS was ok to use
