    Clonning HDD's

    I have successfully modded my Wii (one of three) but I followed another modding, any who, my question is in regards to using an USB HDD.
    I have successfully made a Toshiba HDD2157 G ZF01 T 15.10GB (LBA 29, 498, 112sectors) MK1517GAP MODEL TO WORK. Got games into it, playable and so far so good..damm HDD is too small!!!
    Then like everyone else, I have a bunch of HDD laying around that are bigger and would like to use them...
    I've 'cloned' this particular Toshiba HDD with EaseUS Partition Master 9.2.2 to another bigger drive, a Fujitsu MHT2040AH PL 40GB, that is in a Smartor 125 Enclosure. Which I believe is a 1.X USB...
    Any ways, EaseUS Partition said everything was cloned exactly...USB Loader GX loader won't recognize the drive!
    Any tips as to what am I doing wrong?
    I know that I don't see this particular drive in the list of compatible HDD's, but I'm still hopeful that I might be missing a step or two....
    IF I'm posting in the wrong forum, please let me know...
    Thanks

    have you formated it in FAT32?

    well, then i can't say the reason it's not working
    i've used a hard drive that is not on the list as well, but i had only to format it to fat 32 and it worked
    maybe it's because of the usb 1.0?

    Could be the enclosure...I'll give it another try in a different setting...Thanks

    Reporting: Fujitsu MHT2040AH PL 40GB works!
    Need to head back and report this two HDD's in the compatible HDD's thread.
    It was the enclosure.
    Now I have to find me one that works and finish setting this up for my daughter...
    Thanks to everyone for the tips in this thread.

    First, I'd like to say thank you for this guide.

    I have a suggestion for formatting using Linux. If you want 32k clusters for Gamecube compatibility, you can use mkdosfs and add "-s 64 -S 512" to the command line. For example:

    Code:
    mkdosfs -v -c -s 64 -S 512 -F 32 /dev/sdx1
    (change sdx to whatever drive you're using).

    The -S 512 specifies 512 a logical sector size of 512 bytes, which is the default. It shouldn't be strictly necessary, but I'd suggest using it to be sure. The -s 64 specifies 64 sectors per cluster (64 * 512 bytes = 32 kbytes). Note that the guide uses the -I (capital letter i), which I didn't need for a hard drive partition. You might need it for an SD card, I haven't tried that myself.

    You can verify the cluster size with "dosfsck -av /dev/sdx1". It should tell you, among other things:

    Code:
           512 bytes per logical sector
         32768 bytes per cluster
    I didn't see any way to accomplish it using GParted, so you'll have to break out the command line unless someone else knows another way to do it.

    As far as I can tell GParted and mkdosfs always create 32kb clusters by default. I'll go ahead and add those options to the original post just in case. As for the -I option, it doesn't hurt anything to be there, so even if it's not necessary for everyone I'm going to leave it.

    Thanks a bunch for your input!

    Hello, I am new to this, so sorry about any hardships, but I was wondering if it would be fine partitioning only part of the external HDD to FAT32 as I am trying to use my HDD for both my computer and wii but would rather much have NTSF and I heard that this method would only allow 32 GB for the FAT32 partition. Thank you for any help on the matter.

    I have my 1.5TB hard drive formatted completely has FAT32. Did you read the guide you replied in? It tells you how to do so.

    As long as the Wii hard drive is first and primary, most apps will use it just fine and leave any other partitions alone. But it does add to the chance of the Wii completely ignoring anything on the hard drive since it's really wanting to be first, primary, and only partition.
