He's joking with you for using the name "DiosMios" and then having questions about it.
One would think that if you used that name, you'd be the expert. So it could be confusing.
ok, but, how to fix this problem? I got this Wii with retro compatibility just to play GC games via USB, Im new to Wii because my console this generation is a PS3
I want to play GC games via USB, but when I finally made it works, the console shuts down randomly...
Sounds like no one knows. This is a new one to me. The only thing that I would suggest is to try another USB device. We have a compatibility "matrix" where initially people were saying if hard drives work for Wii games, and then lately have been adding DM compatibility as well.
I bought this hard drive last month to replace my 250gig that was full and it works with both Wii and GC games: Amazon.com: Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Desk 1.5 TB USB 2.0 External Hard Drive STAC1500100: Electronics
can you look at your HD whar number is set to boot value???
My external USB is SEAGATE 300GB, it has cluster 32kb, set to active and primary, and with boot value of 56kb...I cannot reduce boot to less than that
my SD is 2gb, with 32kb cluster and 32kb boot...
can you check yours so I can compare?
I formatted with paragon partition manager, it works well for PS3, works well for Wii games
you can see the value in paragon partition manager...maybe its that what is causing me trouble....
I have my HDD set to cluster 32kb , boot 56kb (cant reduce it)
You could also use Acronis Disk Director 11 Advanced : right click your disk/change cluster size/current cluster size: I use Acronis Disk Director 11 Advanced on three HDD to change it from 64KB to 32KB and I did not lose any data. (I ONLY RECOMMEND ACRONIS BECAUSE NO DATA LOSS)
I set it to 32kb manually in the PARAGON PARTITION MANAGER, it shows me..when I get home I will do the .txt file test to be sure, but as far as I know, its 32kb clusterHow did verify your SEAGATE 300GB was FAT32 with 32kb cluster? Did you use the method in the guide?
help please, im reading the thread and got know this:
I can confirm these issues, however, AFTER doing what thestas said in his post (downloading the Seagate application and setting the auto-shutoff to never), the drive works perfectly.
found this thread
my external HD is SEAGATE 320GB , perhaps this is the cause of the problem?Working ... but only after using Seagate's utility to turn off the auto-shutoff
what means auto-shutoff??? means my HD will turn off alone?

Yes, no matter what method, mistakenly having your cluster size to anything but 32kb seems to be prevelant. The text file is a sure-fire method.
so glad this is still working i just upgraded my softmod cause i havnt done it about 6 months now im putting my dml back on so i can play all the resident evil games in order from the re remake up to re3 im so freaking hype and thanks to the people who put all the time in this you guys are saints
