usb loader freezing problem
Hello. I have some trouble with my wii , although i don't know any of the functionality of these extra hacking software. I didn't install these myself.
It was working alright with an external wd passport 500GB through usb loader. Sadly...i had to change the hdd..to an wd book 2TB which i'm using for pc too.
I created a new partition (100GB) from the hdd (rest space is ntfs) and formatted through WBFS 3.0...added games and all ok. But somehow when usb loader is in "initialize usb device" it freezes and i have to hard reset.
I have managed to make it work random times. I tried to have unplugged the hdd and plug it after loading the program (when it counts down) as i saw on a video on youtube...but it doesn't work either. I tried to make the hdd active too (it was primary already) and nothing changed. I'm 99% sure when i plug the hdd in the pc...(everytime i was using WBFS for example) and then plug it on wii...it's working! I tried to restart many times the usb loader and it was working. But as soon as i turn off the wii...and restart...it freezes again. Of course i can't plug it on pc first every time i want to play. If anyone has any idea on my issue..please help
Thanks for your time.

Is the new hard drive on the compatibility thread? It may not be compatible. And we recommend formatting in FAT32 or NTFS as a single partition instead of having multiple partitions of various types. WBFS formatting has not been a requirement in some time and considered obsolete.
I use FAT32 (32k clusters as required by Dios Mios) for my hard drive. Guides talking about FAT32 and NTFS are in my signature.

Well...i'm not sure..but the precise model is WDBACW0020HBK-EESN (In list :Western Digital My Book Essentials WDBACW0020HBK-NESN 2TB - (External Power Supply) - Working)
I don't know what EESN and NESN means.
I saw the guide about FAT32 and seems easy to do. Although...will it work with my current softmod setup? My brother did this softmod procedure some time ago...and from what i remember there are most of these programs in wii.
I guess my last solution would be to get an hdd as before...in WBFS that i know it worked well.
EESN = Europe, NESN = North America. It's the same device other than differing household current.
I followed the guide about Fat32 format and it's still same. First time i connect the hdd to wii everything ok. If i reset wii...it freezes on "initialize usb device".
At least now i know i didn't do anything wrong with format or importing games. And i didn't change anything from wii's software...so i guess it's something with my hdd.
Is there any setting on the drive i don't know? Maybe it would help if i update any software?

Post a syscheck here in this thread. A how-to guide is linked to below in my sig.
Turns out that i had to unplug the power from the hdd..and plug it just before using the usb loader. It's not the perfect solution...but i can live with that
Thanks for your answers.
