    I was wondering if those using the Western Digital My Book drives are also using the WD "software" that comes on the drive when you bought it or not. Trying to figure out if there is a way to get the thing to power off/on properly with the WII.

    Size: 500GB
    Brand: Western Digital My Book Home edition w/ firewire and sata ports(supplied "smartware" software never installed)
    Model: wd5000h1cs-00
    Format: 2nd partition 5gb fat 32, first one wbfs
    Firmware/Softmod: 4.2u, cIOS38 r14 (tried r15, broke everything), Hermes (used a bunch of versions, works the same), Priiloader (tried no priiloader, tried v30,v32, currently v45, all worked the same other than the v30 bug)
    Loader: USB Loader GX (updated weekly), Neo gamma R8 v15

    Works fine on all Games so far, NSMB, SSBB, Wii Sports Resort, (I dont download, just wanted to put all my originals on a drive so the kids cant scratch them) BUT with issues. You have to unplug the power cord for the hard drive, turn the Wii on (or you can plug the power cord in and then turn the wii a second later, before the drive goes to sleep), then you can open USB loader gx fine and you can use it with NEo Gamma fine. It will not power off/on properly with the wii. My USB jump drive does power off/on fine.

    Seagate FreeAgent Desk

    Working - with issues
    The whole drive is formatted to WBFS

    Configurable USB Loader is the only USB Loader that boots this drive, the way you would expect every USB loader to boot it. At first I thought it was just GX that didn't boot the drive correctly, but WiiFlow doesn't boot it correctly either. Not tested with NeoGamma. This is what I do to get I working.

    If booting from Channel or forwarder.

    1. Turn on the Wii with HDD powered off (or unplugged from the Wii)
    2. After the Wii menu appears, power up the HDD (or plug in HDD if unplugged)
    3. Now select your channel or forwarder and all should work well.



    If booting from HomeBrew Channel

    1. Turn on the Wii with HDD powerd off (or unplugged from the Wii)
    2. Select homebrew channel and wait for that to load.
    3. Power up the HDD (or plug in hdd to Wii if unplugged)
    4. Now select your USB Loader, and all should work.

    It's just having to know when to power the drive.

    Since this thread is about USB Compatibility, are we keeping track of USB thumb drives?

    Ca Iomega Select 1gb Works, Lacie 500 GB Porsche Doesn't

    After hours spent trying to get a Lacie 500 gb FA Porsche to work (and failing) I plugged in an IOMEGA Igb Select Hard Drive and it worked right away. Neogamma and Usb Loader.
