    Unable to read USB drives

    Hey all!

    I joined these forums in hopes of getting some help with being able to read my USB HDD. I realize a lot of people are asking the same thing on here, but I just can't seem to get a grip on why I can't get it working. I'm on a softmodded (and chipped a long time ago) 4.2e. I've followed the softmodding guide by messie and the gen3sf guide for loading and playing backup games, but my wii still won't recognize my HDD.

    I'm running a Lacie 500gb drive which should be compatible according to the lists, and I formatted the whole thing as a WBFS drive. I'm also pretty sure I'm using the right USB port (the one closest to the edge of the console).

    I suspect I might have mixed some instructions up along the way at some point and gone a little over board with the cios's.

    Anyway, here's my syscheck, I hope it sheds some light on my problem (and possibly where I've f***ed up).
