I was wondering if those using the Western Digital My Book drives are also using the WD "software" that comes on the drive when you bought it or not. Trying to figure out if there is a way to get the thing to power off/on properly with the WII.
Brand: Western Digital My Book Home edition w/ firewire and sata ports(supplied "smartware" software never installed)
Format: 2nd partition 5gb fat 32, first one wbfs
Firmware/Softmod: 4.2u, cIOS38 r14 (tried r15, broke everything), Hermes (used a bunch of versions, works the same), Priiloader (tried no priiloader, tried v30,v32, currently v45, all worked the same other than the v30 bug)
Loader: USB Loader GX (updated weekly), Neo gamma R8 v15
Works fine on all Games so far, NSMB, SSBB, Wii Sports Resort, (I dont download, just wanted to put all my originals on a drive so the kids cant scratch them) BUT with issues. You have to unplug the power cord for the hard drive, turn the Wii on (or you can plug the power cord in and then turn the wii a second later, before the drive goes to sleep), then you can open USB loader gx fine and you can use it with NEo Gamma fine. It will not power off/on properly with the wii. My USB jump drive does power off/on fine.
