Scientific Study of Why USB loaders don't see my device.
I have a 300gb Acomodata drive. It was called a hybrid drive, it's a real POS.
I did the tutorial by dog eggs on how to take a vigin 4.0 wii and get HBC on it ... Success. I did everything in that tutorial.
Then I got the wad files for 2 usb loader The USB loader 1.5 and the USB loader GX. Sucess I see the channels for these programs
Then I formatted my drive a million different ways and my drive is recognized by WBFS manager 3.0. But unfortunately all the wii sees is a grey brick.
OK, so not all drives are supported. But I don't really have access to many drive right now (without buying some extra crap). I need to know all the scientific reasons why my drive is not recognized and test each one until the problem is discovered, the problem is I don't really know all the variables that need to be in place. I'll keep looking for a drive that works, but I feel like I'm looking for a needle in a haystack. Note this is the only homebrew application that I ever want to run ever and once I get it to work I will be done.. For ever. Is there an essential step that I need to do? Thanks.
Also is there a way to take a wii back to virgin? So i can start completely over if needed.
