Fix for HDD loading for Wii64/WiiSX
I've read a couple of threads in this section about having problems with Wii64/WiiSX not reading their hard drive. A while back I had this same problem myself, and was able to find a solution. I will explain the fix and why I think it doesn't work without it.
I believe if you use cIOS for usb loading it interferes with your HDD not being read by Wii64/WiiSX. Before I started using USB loading, I had no problems with Wii64/WiiSX reading my HDD or flash drives. After installing cIOS for usb loading, it was no longer read. I then tried the usb2.0 mod of Wii64 1.1, and the usb2.0 mod of WiiSX 2.1, betting that it would recognize my HDD then, and sure enough it did. I mean, I understand that some devs don't want piracy, but those of us that use it for legal purposes shouldn't be punished. So I guess cIOS messes with Wii64/WiiSX and it's ability to read the HDD.
This makes me worry about future releases of these emulators. Sure, they'll support ios58 which will be usb 2.0, but may have these same issues. And since it will already be usb2.0, someone may not bother making a mod that uses cIOS for usb2.0 support instead. So then I feel like I'll have to choose between usb loading and emulators. :( Oh, and by the way, the usb2.0 mod makes Wii64/WiiSX run much faster as well!
