    Unable to Load ISO Files From External HDD

    Ok so I've read all the forums and searched on some key words but I still can't find anything that has helped me as yet. Apologies if I've missed something by chance.

    I want to use my HDD to dump/load ios files on my Wii as I cannot get a wireless connection where I am. I'm able to load and play discs using NeoGama fine.

    I've downloaded several iso loaders and none of them seem to recognise my Lacie 500gb hard drive which I checked and it did seem as though it should be compatible. I have created two partitions 1. WBFS using the WBFS Manager (primary and active) 2. NTCS (inactive). I also tried just having a Fat32 partition and an inactive NTCS but this didn't work either (i followed a really handy guide on this site to make it wbfs).

    The apps I've downloaded and the issues I get with them are:
    USB Loader V1.2 - Mounting iso error (tried multiple slots and turning it on at various times)
    USB Loader GX V1.0 - Doesn't recognise the usb connection (tried multiple slots and turning it on at various times
    Super Dumper - Doesn't recgnise the usb connection. Occassionally throws up a page with lots of file numbers

    I've also reinstalled Cios 38 Rev 14 but this hasn't helped either

    So all of this "appears" to point to my hard drive and either it's a bucket of rubbish or i haven't formatted it correctly. Can someone please help if you've been through this as well and figured out a way?
