I'm using soft modded black Wii (4.3E)
Configurable USB Loader
Working fine after plugging in before booting up the Wii; and powered only from Wii usb port.
Model: DataTravel 300
Type: Flash Drive
Format: FAT32 (NTFS did not work. I have not tried any other.)
Firmware: 4.1u (downgraded from 4.3u)
Softmod: first tried http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...mod-guide.html and downgraded to 4.1u. did not work right away so i tried http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html
I would like to thank emuhack, BluPhant, desperado836, Ciles, and anyone else i might have missed. all the help is very much appreciated. i would not have got this working without them.
again i repeat.. WORKING!!!!!
iomega Select Portable Hard Drive 500gb 2.5"
Very happy, as it was on sale, and is powered by USB, so I was concerned, but it loads Mighty Channels, CFG USB Loader and HBC apps, which my last HDD (3.5" in external enclosure) could not do correctly.
Give credit where credit is due. If it helps you, click "thanks" on ANY guide I link.
I am very new to the wii hacking and I can't say exactly what I did to my platform, because I had to use two or three different guides for over a week. Anyway, I managed to hack it and to play games via USB disk. Here is the information I can provide:
DISK: Transcend SJ25M2, 500 GB, 60GB WBFS (primary, active)+400GB NTFS, uploaded several games and tested two of them - Tron, Crash of the Titans. Both working fine (Using the WBFS system, I didn't try the NTFS or FAT32 methods)
Wii - Black edition, v4.2
Softmod - bannerbomb, dogeggs, ...
IOS - after installing 236, it finally worked, but before that I installed 249, 202, 222 and god knows what else
USB Loader GX 2.0
I have two HDDs as I just bought a bigger one.
Brand: Seagate FreeAgent Go
Firmware/Softmod: 4.1u using the most recent guide
Loader: Both Wiiflow 1.1 and USB Configurable Loader v65 are working
Brand: WD My Passport
Firmware/Softmod: 4.1u using guide here
Loader: Wiiflow 1.1 (didn't work, might have to update it) but USB Configurable Loader v65 (Working)
I have 5 of the same exact enclosures, all same chip sets and components and only 3 work with the wii. All 5 work perfectly with windows as NTFS, FAT32 and WBFS however the 2 will not start in wii flow. I tested the enclosures with the same drive, power supply and USB cable.
keep in mind the 2 that dont work have the same components down to the numbers and all work fine in windows.
enclosures are "venus DS3" ide

In the first post, it lists the Iomega GDHDU 1TB as working. My dirve lists it as GDHDU2. Would they be the same?
