Difficulties Playing Backups From External HDD
This is going to be my first post here on WiiHacks, so bear with me. I know very little about modding when it comes to the Wii, so if I am required to give any members more information of a technical nature,, please link me to a guide or tell me what to do in order to provide it.
Three days ago I softmodded my North American Wii on 4.3 following Mauifrog's guide using Smash Stack. I've also purchased a Hitachi external hard drive on which to play my backups. Before I begin, I've been having issues putting games larger than say, 1 GB, on my hard drive. Be it on WBFS,NTFS, or FAT32, my hard drive tends to disconnect itself from the computer midtransfer. On occasion, I am able to successfully add my games on any one of these file systems (NTFS usually).
At first, all of my games worked fine using USBloader GX 1.1, save for Animal Crossing(NTSC-U and PAL) which manages to get stuck on the loading screen with a bus on the corner. After the first day, I begin to get black screens upon loading certain games such as Super Mario Galaxy, and freezing on loading screens such as Harvest Moon Magical Melody. This morning, after transferring maybe 5-6 more games onto my hard drive (formatted as NTFS), I find that USBloader loads up correctly, recognizing the hard drive, but saying it has 0 games, with 0.00GB available of 0.00GB.
And finally, regardless of the file system or game on the hard drive, I am confronted with a black screen upon loading a game. And now I come to you for some help/advice.
