    HD Problem...Please Help

    Hi i have been running my softmodded wii for a while now playing games from the hard drive but it was only a 60gb so thought i would buy a bigger one so puchased a Western Digital My Passport Essential 250gb hd after searching on this site and finding this one worked

    I plugged it up and formatted using Configurable Usb Loader via the wii which seemed to work fine, i then connected my current hd to WBFS and loaded the games then connected the new one and transferred a few to the new hd

    i than connected it to the wii loaded it up it found the games as normal BUT when i click the load the game it sticks on "Loading Game"

    can anyone help me out???

    Cheers

    where am i going wrong

    Thanks

    Look here. Scroll down to the first picture it shows how to mark as primary.

    You have to click on the actual space ( I think it will saw raw file or something like that if its formatted to wbfs)
