    The USB HD Blues

    So, first off thanks for all the great info here, it has been a big help. I did the softmod a few weeks ago according to the MauiFrog guide posted here and everything was great until yesterday. I had backed up some games onto a Samsung 120GB hard drive mounted in an external enclosure using USB Loader GX, all of them worked fine until someone accidentally cut the power to the wii.

    when the Wii booted back up it did not recognize the hard drive. Going through CFG loader gives an error saying "invalid partition" and USB Loader GX says it cannot find the hard drive. I have wiped and reformatted the hard drive in both FAT32 and NTFS using EaseUS multiple times and it still will not recognize the hard drive. I am thinking there might be an issue with the Wii itself because everything was working fine with the hard drive prior to the power loss event. I did a syscheck and wanted to see if anyone could check it out and see if there is an issue here.

    I have searched and searched trying to figure out what the issue is but I dont know how to fix it. This may not be the right place as it might be an issue with the USB loader programs but I am not sure where to start. If you open the HBC and click on the USB hard drive it goes to an error screen and the Wii must be shut down manually to recover.

    Ideas? thanks for your help

    Looks good to me. Did you try it (the hard drive and enclosure) on a PC? That would be easy enough and an indicator...

    Is it possible it damaged the USB port? I mean did the force to the external merely pull it out of the wall plug or perhaps did it do something to the other end as well (to the socket mounted on the Wii)?

    no, the power was shut off to the Wii from someone turning off the wall switch. The USB port is fine as I can still load stuff from other flash drives plugged into that port. What is the best place to post about issues with a hard drive? i dont want to clog up this thread any more than necessary.

    I have moved all your posts out of the SysCheck thread and into it's own. I presume you followed the FAT32 guide, since you mention Easeus?

    Yes, I followed the FAT32 guide posted here in the tutorials section. when that did not work, i followed the NTFS guide, which also had no effect. i have attached a picture of the error message that comes up when using CFG. I am not sure why it is throwing the partition error message, do i need to upgrade to the latest version of CFG?

    You may need to delete the gxglobal.cfg file located in the SD/apps/usbloader_gx folder. Try that then see if GX sees the drive.

    Try looking in the SD/config folder. Older versions of gx use that...
