    HDD Problem

    I installed usb loader a fe wmonths ago and was using a pen drive no problems.

    Today I bought a seagate 2tb External HDD.

    I have set it up so there are 2 partitions 1 NTFS and the other WBFS. After adding game to the WBFS partiton and opening USB loader, I select the WBFS partion and it shows me the game on it as well as playing the sound to the game and also the description is visable. When I press A to load the game it frezzes I have re-formatted and added the game several times. Any ideas please as these game were working from a flash drive. It just locks up saying "Booting Wii game, please wait..." then under it says IOS248

    Regards

    Walt

    Thanks for your reply.

    If i go full fat does that not limit me to games under 4gb? and if i go to ntfs what things do i need to do to get it working. I aint a clue how to do a sys check but the console was working before i used ths HDD.

    Installing all these extra wads and such is a little to difficult for me, is there nay reason the game play in wfms off a pen drive and not from my wfms partion on my hard drive? Im using game manager both times. :\ it doesnt figure to me, it shows on loader that my parttion on my HDD is there, shows the games but wont boot them.

    Regards

    Warren
