Finally, I seem to have a reason why my iomega minimax drive doesn't work with usb loaders, after on and off trying everytime an update has been released. uloader v3.5 tells me that the usb device has been detected as a hub. Actually, it is a hub, as well as a 500GB drive, as I wanted a simple solution to all the wiimote charging usb devices, given the wii only having 2 usb ports and one being needed for wii chat/animal crossing.

so, is there a kind usb loader developer out there, willing/able to see if drives that contain hubs can be made compatible. I got my hopes up with fat32 compatibility from IOS 222/223 and the Configurable USB Loader...

... only to have them dashed. However, at least I now know why! :-)
