I want to buy a Western Digital - My Passport Essential 500GB External USB 3.0/2.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBACY5000ABL-NESN- (Pacific Blue)
I read here USB Devices Compatibility List - WikiTemp
Some one had posted this....
Western Digital My Passport Essential 500 GB USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive WDBACY5000ARD-NESN (Real Red)
When trying to mount in USB Loader or WiiFlow, the drive will not be recognized and/or the loader freezes. Tried WBFS and NTFS. WBFS from PC worked fine. Sad, would have been a perfect color match for the red Wii
My question is: Should I look for something different? When I read this how do I know that this person is doing everything right? I know I can go out and buy it and try it out but I don't want to be stuck with a HDD for no reason. Has anyone else bought one? Any input is appreciated.
