Did you format your SD card prior to completing chapter 3 of the guide?
Ive been using this xmicro brand 20 gig harddrive to play games on my wii, and its been working great, I downloaded animal crossing and kept having freezing issues to fix it by downgrading my cios to rev9... big mistake after i did it, usb loader stopped working.
So i used the softmod any wii guide from the forum and ive done it 3 times so far, i thought i might have missed something the first time. yet i cannot get it to recognize my HDD. at this point i thought it was the HDD but my computer sees it just fine, i reformatted it my pc still sees it but the wii still wont see it. I have no idea what to do next, right now my wii has just finished being modded with the guide on a 4.1u system.
Any help would be appreciated....
oh and it can read burned games just fine so i dont know what is wrong.
I literally followed the guide to the T and it doesnt work. after I downgraded to rev9 it broke and nothing worked then I proceeded to try the softmod guide again, and then again once I took a breather from being frustrated
I downloaded a homebrew and ran it, it was a usb tester, It cant initialize my HDD, The HDD used to work and still works with my computer, any ideas? I ran through the softmod guide several times and I cant figure out what i would have missed to cause my usb ports not to work. I use the lan adapter aswell never been an issue.
Make sure you have it plugged into port 0. The usb port closest to the edge.
Try a new usb cord.
Try and setup the drive again with the fat32 guide in the spoiler below.
Try a flash drive or another hdd, to narrow the problem.
Plug your phone charger or something in the Wii's usb port 0, to check for power.
