USB Loader GX, SanDisk 8GB USB and 500GB Passport Elite
Hey all, I'm sincerely sorry if I've posted a repeat question, but I feel this issue is unique.
Yesterday, I successfully soft modded my Wii. I have the Homebrew channel, some emulators, etc.
Anyway, I wanted to try the USB Loader GX and ran it. Used it's update tool and got the latest version. I decided to use the "Install Game" feature and successfully ripped New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles to a SanDisk 8GB usb stick. Before it installed the games, it formatted the stick to WBFS format.
So today, knowing that an 8GB stick isn't enough to hold my Wii collection I went to BestBuy and purchased a 500GB Western Digital MyPassport Elite, per the recommendations on this forum.
Long story short: I get a black screen and an error dump when trying to install games to the new USB HDD. Thinking that perhaps the USB Loader program had gone bad I took off the HDD and used the same USB stick from yesterday - and it worked like a charm!
So, I don't know what to do at this point. The USB loader doesn't give me the option to format the new HDD. I tried formatting the HDD from my PC using WBFS Manager 3.0 and it says "An error occured while attempting to format the drive."
Thank you, God bless and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
