CFG not reading USB or external HDD drives
Hi all, I'm new to this so please bear with me. I was recently given a black Wii (ver. 4.2u) by a friend which was not yet soft modded. Had it taken cared of by an acquaintance who upgraded it to 4.3 and soft modded. I guess I was stupid for not asking how to set up games using an external storage device since he did give me an example by plugging an 8gb USB drive and showing the games being run. Just told me to use WBFS.
My problem now is my USB drives are not detected by CFG (ver. 56a). I checked around and followed instructions on how to format the drive to FAT32, where to plug in on the wii (I've tried both ports) and CFG still does not detect ANY drive I used, from a 4gb flash to a 250gb HDD. Guy who updated the Wii currently is overseas and having it checked locally may cost me. All drives were formatted correctly AND detected in WBFS. Transferred some game iso backups on each drive and still nothing. Do I have to get the softmod reversed then done over again?
Thanks for the help!
