Thread: USB HDD slow

  1. #1

    USB HDD slow

    I modded my wii a few months back and purchased a Western Elements 1TB Hard drive to connect to my Wii.

    It worked well for a few months but recently it was taking an age to load up the games. I loaded a single game (Mario tennis) on a small USB stick and it worked fine no time problem at all.

    So I reformatted the whole 1TB drive, cleared partitions etc and started again. Just loaded New Super Mario Bros back on and it is still slow?

    I have done a back search on threads but I haven't found a soloution as yet.

    Any suggestions?

    What format is the HDD? And what cIOS are you using?

    It's formatted WBFS.

    How do I check which CIOS it's using? I downloaded using mauifrogs guide but haven't updated since then. I use CFG USB loader I think the cios is 248(base-56) ?

    I ran a sys check - can you tell if anything is wrong/needs changing with these results?

    Hmmm Super Mario Bros should work with rev 17 which you have. It wouldn't do any harm to update them though.
    It looks like you used Mauifrogs guide to mod but when it had older revs of cios'....

    You could try using Fat32 on your hdd.....

    Thanks for your help.

    Is the cios pack posted in the first post of mauifrog an updated version or is there another one?

    When I've formatted via Fat32 previously none of the games appear?

    Edit - I have downloaded the updated cios pack from maui's guide but the game is still running slow. How do I get cfg to run the cios and rev I want it to run?

    When you formatted to fat 32. Did you make the partition active and primary? Did you have a wbfs folder on the root of the hdd with the games in wbfs format

    Have you tried re ripping the game to your hdd?
