Yeah, I guess it is worth a shot. I just didn't want to deal with the whole disc verification thing.
That's really only a problem if your disc drive is broke though. You verify the games once and they'll be good to go after that.
Devolution works without any issues, which isn't surprising because it runs everything in wii mode.
Had to reformat the drive because something went wrong while ripping another game (may have been because I had an old version of cleanrip).
Tried using Dios Mios again and it still didn't work, same issue with the HDDcutting off briefly when dios mios tries to boot up.
I would still like to try to get dios mios working, just so I have the option in the event that my disc drive dies. Always nice to have redundancy.
I still think that the problem is centered around the HDD rebooting, and by that I mean this is not something it should be doing. It almost seems like the port loses power for a second which my drive detects as the system cutting off, or the usb cable being disconnected which causes the drive to automatically power off. Then when the power returns a second latter it turns back on since it detects this as the usb cable being connected. Unfortunately there is no way to disable this feature of the HDD as far as I am aware. That being said there is no reason the usb port should lose power for any amount of time right?
As much as I appreciate the video, it would be way more useful to have a full view of the HDD, particularly the light on it to see if the HDD acts the same way as mine when you launch stuff.
is there any way to get it to work with WBFS formatted HDD?
Pretty sure if you've read the guide, you should have the answer to this. Wishful thinking will not change an answer you should be well aware of.
I could see the light perfectly, thank you.
Your HDD functions the way I would expect it to. Mine, despite appearing to be the same HDD but having a different P/N shuts down after clicking on a gamecube game and hitting start.
To be more specific, my HDD functions exactly as yours does up until the part directly after you click to start wind waker. At this point the HDD light flashes briefly and then the HDD shuts down, turning back on immediately after and leaving me stuck at the black "transition screen".
I have absolutely no idea why this happens but it happens with every version of dios mios. If this description is confusing I can try and get a video of it just so it makes more sense.
Hmm. It seems to me that the only solution to it is somehow changing the settings of your USB controller. For example, others have had problems where their USB turns off 30 minutes into a game consistently. For you, it turns off instantly. Interestingly, for the same exact HDD, candylove does not have this problem, and your HDD is in mbr format too. I will do a little searching through this thread to see how that was solved.

The only explanation I have for it occurring is that somehow the HDD is detecting that the wii is no logner connected for a brief moment since the HDD turns off then back on and had a feature where it automatically does this based on when it is plugged in/ unplugged. This is not something I can change.
EDIT: I noticed on the compatibility thread someone posted a western digital drive that is 2TB. They put "WDBACW0020HBK-00" as the model number but this is actually the P/N. The same P/N I have.
They all have a problem with gamecube games.
Everyone who has this hard drive but has P/N "WDBACW0020HBK-01" reports it as working with gamecube games. My guess is that the 00 version is an older revision and whatever it is that causes it to shut down was fixed in the new revision.

If no splash screen appears at all, your HDD (usually the USB controller device is at fault not the HDD itself) is probably not supported. Slow HDDs seem to prove problematic for the faster extracted file (FST) format, so try .ISO first.
I just get a black screen (no DIOS MIOS splash screen)
Chances are high that your USB2IDE device isn't supported.
- Assure that your HDD is formatted with FAT32, no other FS is supported.
- Only cluster sizes 32KB or less are supported.
- Only 2TB drives or less are supported.
- The FAT32 partition MUST be the first primaly partition on the HDD, otherwise it will not work.
- If all the above are ok try another USB2IDE device or wait for an update.
After reading this it's usually your USB controller device at fault not the HDD itself.
You said you had to reformat the drive because something went wrong while ripping the game with cleanrip maybe the USB controller device at fault maybe WD change (fixed) the USB controller with my HDD maybe both our HDD is the same and the USB controller is different or your USB controller is just faulty.
