Icev......check one of the lasts post of the USB compatibility for something to try....not to sure what you issue is but I have one of the problem child Toshiba cavino 500gb USB 3.0/2.0 drives. I was always able to get to work with USB loader gx but only if I had the drive unplugged when I loaded gx. Then I would always have to wait to plug it in when it said waiting for hard drive. Been dealing with it for over a year until 2 days ago until I stumbled a cross a post from Möbius. Long story short....it worked for me when I have a non compatible hard drive... .worth a shot to try. Hope it helps.

I'm confused about where I would start in the guide. I already have the Wii softmoded so after formatting the drive, it's not as if I need to re-mod the Wii (since homebrew channel is already there).
Perhaps I should just delete most apps and try from there? I'm quite confused here
tanju8181, unfortunately that didn't work. It stopped for a second and seemed like it was going to but ended up not. Perhaps I could try again with a NTFS format and see if that works
Rip from Guide
Part 1- Launch Hackmii Installer
As of hackmii 1.1.0, ios58 will be installed prior to hbc install for all wiis 4.2 and less.
Below you will find many methods for loading the hackmii installer. Bannerbomb is best and is supported on 3.0-4.2 wiis.
Choose the method compatible with your wii.
Softmods with HOMEBREW CHANNEL installed
If you already have a softmod with HBC installed, you can update your softmod with this guide.
Note: 4.3 wiis can skip installation of ios58 and 61, and simply load Hackmii from the HBC.
Backup and Format your sd-card
Extract WiiMod-58-61_Hackmii_1.1.0 to sd:\
Load the HomeBrew Channel
Launch WiiMod - WiiMod will load
-Select Wad Manager -Press A
-Press 1, -press A -Install all wads
-IOS58 and IOS61 will install
-Press "any button" to continue
-Exit WiiMod to go back to the Homebrew Channel
-Select hackmii_installer_v1.0 - Press A to Launch
-Hackmii Installer Loads
Continue from there :) This will update ANY software incorrectly installed from any other guide that's led you wrong :)
Thanks, also how do I know which USB Loader I should be using (249 222 or 250?)
You will initially be using 249; however this is an update to this file here: LINK!
- You will rename the .dol file to: "boot.dol" and place this in the SD:\apps\usbloader_gx\ folder.
- You will copy the wad to a noticeable location on your SD card to install the forwarder for the USB Loader GX.
Then you'll be set :)
Well I formatted the card, reinstalled homebrew once more, and even tried the waiting until the "waiting for hdd to respond" to plug in the usb method.
Still no luck :(
It's in FAT32 still, do you think formatting to NTFS would change anything?
Other than that it seems that this drive just isn't going to work or perhaps the backed-up game file isn't working? (If this latter situation is the case, would it still be giving a usb drive not found error though?)
Is this HDD recognized by your pc with absolutely no problems?
Well my roommate may have some extra hard drives, once they're organized we will try one of those. Perhaps my HDD just isn't compatible for some reason. I'm at a loss for what else to try at this point
