    USB Hard Drive Won't Shut Down With Wii

    Howdy. Long time reader, first time poster. Thanks in advance for any help.

    I have been using USB loaders for quite a while now, and my current hard drive will never spin down when the Wii is turned off. Yes, I've disabled WiiConnect24 and the Wii's light turns red when turned off. But the little light on my Seagate GoFlex (USB 3.0 version) stays on. I can feel the drive continuing to vibrate slightly and it stays warm. Does anyone else have this problem? Are there other AC-powered hard drives that will consistently power on and off with the Wii? Or is it always better to use a USB-powered hard drive?

    Have you looked into the firmware tools Seagate provides for your HD? There may be something there that can help.

    If I remember correctly, you can Google for a software Seagate provides that manages your hard drive, and it. Is been so long since I did it, but you're going to want to do it soon! I bricked my first wii hard drive that way
