Hi, just like to introduce myself to the wiihacks scene.
I am a complete noob on modding, apart from messing about on my sons ds with a supercard.
Quick question for you guys.... I have a modded wii (done by friend) and it works fine, running off a WD Elements Hard Drive. I have downloaded the WBFS 3.0 program and installed and works fine, but when I plug my hard drive into my pc usb port nothing happens (no hard drive listed in my computer).
I just wanted to rename a few games and delete a couple for starters.
Any advice on helping my pc recognize my hard drive?
This forum is for introductions, post questions in the relevant forum.

If you already have Homebrew, upgrade to 4.1 written by Dogeggs
Don’t update to 4.2, but if you are already on 4.2, complete 4.2 guide written by Messie
2009 Wii Serial numbers after LU3884XXXX and LEH2676XXXX have probably got the new D3-2 chip that prevents playing backup DVD's. They can still use original discs and USB loaders.
And please do donate to the forum if you are able so we can go on helping the Wii community.
I hope you have a great time here at WiiHacks, and increase your knowledge of all things Wii.
