CFG loader won't recognize HDD unless its powered on after Wii
Well it seems like im not the only one that have had this problem. As the topic says i must power (plug in) my hdd after I powered on my Wii. In my opinion that flushes the beauty with softmodd + external hdd down the drain. I've been searching for an answer on this site and i've used google also. The topics i've found dates back maybe a year or so.
Does anyone know the solution to this problem? It's working fine when i do the long procedure but its just that first plug in thing thats really annoying.
Check the HDD's manufacturers website. They might have a fix for you. It sounds like drive spin down. I had a seagate that did this, and yes, it was somewhat annoying.
