  1. #1

    Wii Usb trouble

    here is the breakdown..
    wii--4.2u
    cios249_rev14...but have tried from 10-17..
    cios 222/223 rev 4
    I have tried several drives including 3 diff wd passport drives and I now have a seagate expansion 250gb drive...all drives I have tried show on the list....
    drive is formated as fat32 1 part..is all i have on it..folder named wbfs with known working game inside...
    i can see it with snes9x..
    i watch movies from it with geexbox....
    i browse it with homebrew browser...
    I can load games from disc with neogamma..
    loaders tried....cfg,wiiflow, usb-loader gx...none work
    but for some reason i can't get any loader to find it..has been this way with all the drives... I followed messie's guide to the T about 3 times now....

    I have no idea what it could be I always get an init error -1 or init error -1001
    have tried pluggingin at diff times...before power on, after power on, after homebrew load screen, after loader loads..nothing works for me...

    CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME....i am about to just crush this wii with a hammer...lol

    You need to have a program called wbfs manager, you will load it then format your drive to a wbfs format. You dont need a folder named wbfs. You will load your games thru wbfs manager, and your wii will see the drive and games then.

    This may sound basic but are you plugging it in the bottom usb port?

    Or more likely down the active partitions problems of 2 partitions of FAT32 & WBFS on a USB HDD that the Wii doesn't like,

    Mark the FAT32 partition as the active partition.
    Please remember your manners - say Thank You if someone helped , it doesn't hurt

    yes left most port....and i only have 1 partition..currently fat32..again but tried wbfs..still no go..i have also tried a wd passport 250, 320, and 500..all same results....i don't know what could be going on..
    am currently attempting touse a sandisk 8gb sdhc card to see what happens
