Followed the great guide - Thanks for putting it together and keeping it up!
Problem is with my USB Hard drive though. It's an ancient WD 320GB Media drive (with usb/sd slots).
I formatted it FAT32, per the Fat32 drive guide. I put one game folder with game on the drive. I plugged it into the USB port closest to the edge. I made sure to turn on the USB drive prior to powering up the Wii.
Problem is now if I try to go to Homebrew Channel it hangs. If I try the USB Cfg Loader, it never finds it.
Is there a further step I'm missing, or could this just be caused by an incompatible drive?
Thanks for any assistance.
Yes, the drive has been loading backups fine for almost 2 years now.
I'm going down the FAT32 route, I'd rather do that anyway do that I have a drive that is PC usable and no longer totally dedicated to the Wii.
Cheers for taking the time to read and reply, I'll gain a bit more experience from this and when finished hopefully I can help some others and take a bit of pressure off of the staff :-)
Ever since i used this guide, Netflix (Canadian netflix btw) has stopped working, well... more accurately it will work for awhile, around 5 to 10 minuets, and then i get a "Unable to connect to Netflix. Please try again or visit www.netflix.com/tvhelp". which i have done. but it is just a page to register my wii so it can stream movies.
EDIT: nvm i fixed it, it had something to do with my modem

Back to USB loader GX, works fine from Forwarder channel, but cannot get it to AUTOBOOT no matter how many different files i try putting into the root of sd, and installing it :/
I use WBFS as i have had fewer issues. And i didnt know of a fast way to get all my games on WBFS back to a standard fat32 drive/partition.
The WD drive is on the list, 2TB My book essential, 1TB WBFS is the first partition.
thanks to all.
My Wii : FW 3.3u w/ d2x v7final, base 56
USB Loader GX 2.3 under IOS249 (rev 21007)
Thanks for the guide!
I am having a small problem though. When I try Click "Verify Sums", Select "ModPack.md5" I get 16 errors.
Any help would be appreciated.
I wish it was that easy...I've done that with the same result. I've even changed machine from mine (win 7) to my wifes (Vista). Still no go!
