Easiest way is to download a copy of storejetformatter.exe 1.7 from Transcend's web site. That allows you to create a FAT32 partition.

I've the same problem with my new Trascend StoreJet 25M 320gb.
Unfortunately as you said only NeoGamma works...any chance to see a fix for usb loader gx etc.?!
Pass. You could ask the author(s)?
I helped oggzee (CFG USB Loader main developer) as tester, here it is the fixed .dol: http://cfg-loader.googlecode.com/files/cfg52t7.dol
Now we can use CFG Loader without problem!

@SaintSeiya: Nice one - thx for following this up with one of the developers. The gbatemp thread is very interesting. I've had a quick scan of the code changes and if I'm reading it correctly, the change that made it works is to read the extended partition table into a temporary buffer (sized to the correct sector size) which is then copied into the variable used to represent the actual partition. I can also see a couple of "if sector isn't 512, exit with false" type statements. I don't confess to know why this works, but am glad that it does! Hopefully, this mod can be incorporated into other usb loaders.
Help My Transcend 250 GB new HDD aint working
After following the topics around then i choose to buy a new 250Gb HDD transcend instead of a 350 GB HDD. But i put it in my HDD and try to load it with USB loader 1.5.
To test it i loaded the Mplayer and it worked like a charm, Happy i did format it to fat32 using EASEUS Partition manager and then tried out in Wii unfortunately it says "no partition found"
I my suprised is there anything wrong? My sandisk cruiser 16Gb pen drive works and i have 4 games loaded to it already
My HDD scan reveals the following
Model: SAMSUNG HM250HI
Report By: HDDScan for Windows version 3.3
Report Date: 10/9/2010 2:09:24 PM

Can anyone help?
Wow, I sure wish I'd found this thread before attempting to use my 350GB Transcend. (Thanks to all who have contributed to this discussion!)
I don't think I'm having the same problem many of you had, however. I was able to format the drive with three partitions with no problems whatsoever (used MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition). I was able to transfer some test games onto the WBFS partition with no errors. I also added some .avi's to the FAT32 partition to see if I could watch them via WiiMC.
Everything appeared to go smoothly from my PC, but when I plugged my drive into the correct USB port and tried it, the Wii didn't even seem to recognize that there was a USB drive connected. WiiMC only gave options for SD and DVD, and Configurable USB showed only question marks for the covers, rather than any of the games I installed.
I guess, now that I've read this thread, I need to start from square 1 and reformat the entire thing, and use the programs recommended here (e.g., I had used WBFS Backup Manager rather than WBFS Game Manager).
Or could something as simple as installing cfg52t7.dol solve the probem? (That link is now dead, so I guess I'll do a search to see if I can find it elsewhere)
Or would it be easier just to buy a drive that works without all the jumping through hoops......?
No, the cfg52t7.dol file is old: Configurable USB loader has supported 4k sectors ever since this thread, so just grab the latest version. If that doesn't work, you may need a single WBFS partition (no idea). I tried multiple partitions myself but it didn't work, so I went for one biggie instead. Re jumping through hoops, good question! The fact that no one except oggzee seems vaguely interested in 4k sectors is very frustrating (and old fashioned) - especially given that the code changes needed are in the public domain and simple to implement. E.g., most homebrew doesn't work, so on many occassions I've wondered myself if it's just better to get an olde worlde drive instead.
