USB Loader stuck on please wait......
I was using an old WD 200 gig ide drive in an enclosure and all was working fine. I caught a sale on a WD5000H1CS-00 500 gig external, black with a light strip on the front, so I picked it up to change out. I formatted the drive fine with WBFS manager, moved all my games over, but when I try to load the drive through uploader, it just shows the black screen with "Please Wait..." and nothing happens.
Is there something I am missing about the new drive that is causing this new error/problem?
Thanks for the help.
Here is a link to the drive I got.
WD Support > Installation > My Book > My Book Home Edition
Here is a link to see if its compatable.

If you are starting from scratch, new 3.1-4.1 written by Dogeggs
If you already have Homebrew, upgrade to 4.1 written by Dogeggs
Donít update to 4.2, but if you are already on 4.2, complete 4.2 guide written by Messie
2009 Wii Serial numbers after LU3884XXXX and LEH2676XXXX have probably got the new D3-2 chip that prevents playing backup DVD's. They can still use original discs and USB loaders.
I hope you have a great time here at WiiHacks, and increase your knowledge of all things Wii.
1 User Says Thank You WiiJohn For This Useful Post
Thanks WiiJohn. I saw that list, and saw where it appeared to work.
Where I got confused was with the comments posted. (below in quotes) I am new to hacking the wii. I had everything running okay, like I said with the external case. All of this came to when I tried to switch to the new WD drive. I will check to make sure I am running the cios222 from hermes and waninkoko's 38.
"they all seemed to hang up and never booted. The loaders booted fine with the drive unplugged. Worked for me with usbloader gx, hermes cios222, and waninkoko's cios38 rev14, geexbox works aswell."
I did get everything working. Thanks again John. I guess I needed a bit of a nudge. I had both installed. I tried a few times before I got everything working though. I ended up installing the 222 patch then follow it with a new install of the 38. Worked after that order and a reboot.
