    Here is the Dios Mios guide: http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-gu...os-v2-6-a.html

    You can load games from an SD Card, but you'll need DML (Dios Mios Lite) installed instead. The games are prepared using DMToolbox the same either way.

    I have links to the latest versions of DM/DML and USB loaders that will work with the latest DM/DML in my signature.

    Hey guys. Yesterday I softmodded my Wii following mauifrog's guide and all went well. The thing is, the final step is to setup a proper external hdd to play my backup games ( wich I have tried all day without success believe me ). I have checked the compatibility list and the HDD I'm using isn't listed as working (but not as not working either), so I gave it a try. Following this FAT32 guide I cannot format my disc using this file system, but only NTFS... So, is there any chance my HDD doesn't support FAT32 filesystem or is it just incompatible? I have also tried formatting it as NTFS and used Wii Game Manager to transfer my WBFS files to it, but then my Wii doesn't detect it :S. The HDD I'm using is this one:

    TOSHIBA STOR.E BASICS 500GB 2.5'' USB 3.0 & 2.0 HDTB105EK3AA.

    So, please guys, I need some help over here...

    Thanks in advance!

    robertserrao, it sounds like we're having similar problems regarding FAT32. As for NTFS, I didn't have to use Wii Game Manager for that. Look at the NTFS guide. Just drag and drop the files and make sure the folders and files have the right names (you can usually google up the right Game ID's, just make sure to differentiate between regions).

    When I used Wii Game Manager, it was only to convert ISO's to WBFS creating also the necessary directories for each game. Then I copied those same folders to the external HDD formatted as NTFS, but still, the Wii had no success detecting it...
    I then used a 8 gb pen drive formatted to FAT32 using game backup's as WBFS format and it works perfectly. The problem is that it only holds 2-3 games at a time :/
    I really wanted to use my external HDD formatted as FAT32 because it's the file system recommended by most for the Wii.

    When using NTFS, you don't need to convert to WBFS. You can just put the ISO files on the drive, provided you put them in the right place and name them correctly. It's a different system.

    Correct, but converting them does save a lot of space

    True, but I was just relaying my experience with getting games to run from a hard drive that refused to format in FAT32 to someone who seems to have a similar problem and on top of that hasn't gotten it to work with the WBFS conversion.

    Exactly, and I appreciate your concern but the problem I'm having is on the detection of the external hdd and not with the backups themself. I am now trying to format it as WBFS using WBFS Manager 3.0 and will test it in minutes...



    Edit: Tested, and it hangs in all loaders, same as FAT32 and NTFS.

    So I think this drive is just not compatible with the Wii:

    TOSHIBA STOR.E BASICS 500GB 2.5'' USB 3.0 & 2.0 HDTB105EK3AA - Doesn't Work!

    In general, I've found that USB 3.0 drives do not work well with the Wii, even if it is supposed to be backwards compatible with USB 2.0.

    I think this is in the guide, but I can confirm that it does work. For under $100 from Amazon, I bought this and it works great: Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Desk 1.5 TB USB 2.0 External Hard Drive STAC1500100

    Hey laffer thanks for your reply. I just bought another External HDD.

    This time its a: Seagate Expansion Portable 1TB 2.5'' External Hard Drive STBX1000201.

    As it already came formatted in NTFS I just set the partition active using Disk Management and copied the game backups as WBFS to the drive and voilá... it works! ^^

    Oh and
    laffer are you using the HDD you mentioned with a NTFS or a FAT32 partition??
