    Question USB Compatibility List

    This is a W.I.P and any mods can directly contribute to it as needed, just try and keep it in alphabetical order and any members who wish to contribute please post manufacturer and model followed by the size and STRICTLY NO STEALING INFO FROM OTHER SITES!!

    DO NOT POST A REQUEST FOR HELP HERE. This is a reference list only; off-topic posts will be deleted.

    NOTE: As of May 2011, more of the USB 3.0 and USB 3.0/2.0 USB HDDs are now working with the Wii- you may need to update cIOS and/or USB Loader version. Also make sure to look for hidden or special "bloatware" partitions and follow the manufacturer's deletion instructions.

    How to submit a device into the Compatability List

    Step 1 - Format the Hard Drive to FAT32 or NTFS and Install A few Games




    Step 2 - Configure the Hard Drive to Play

    Plug the device into the console before booting it and ensure the necessary modes are enabled/disabled. Few drives may need 'disc mode' enabled. Also note some drives are configured to have a power save mode. This causes the drive to spin down due to inactivity. Its highly recommended to disable this if you plan on using this for your wii. The drive may spin down in game and the game will cut off.



    Step 3 - Test The Game

    If the drive loads a game. Make sure to play a game for at least an hour so we have more accurate results. Report back here with results. Make sure you configured your drive properly before doing this step.



    Step 4 - Reporting Results

    Make sure you followed the previous steps properly before doing this. Your post should be short yet informative. When posting make sure to include the Drive's Brand, Drive's Model and Size. Also make sure to say if the drive worked (loaded game and played whole hour) or did not work or if you had to a trick to get it working what did you do. (E.g plug in drive after powering on wii or used IOS222 instead of IOS249 )
    Again make sure to use a game that works fine and does not have problems!


    Step 5 - Troubleshooting/Doublechecking


    If the drive did not work try to do the following steps before making a final post.

    1. Try using a different usb port

    2. Try plugging in your hard drive after powering on your wii instead but before loading the channel or homebrew channel

    3. Make sure you have the partition set to active and primary

    4. Try using a different IOS (e.g IOS222, IOS223 or IOS249)

    5. Make sure to use a non-problematic game!

    Format: 200GB WBFS / 50GB HFS+
    Firmware/Softmod: 4.2U, cIOS38Rev12/13a/14

    No issues with this drive at all - works great using Wiiflow and USB Loader GX, both tested with significant amounts of data on both partitions.

    Kudos on the thread.
