    help with usb loader gx and my 1tb drive

    So I have the lastest version of usb loader gx on wii firmware 3.2 and everything works fine with small usb drives but when I try to use my 1tb WD my book external hard drive I either get a exception error crash dump, or it says waiting for your slow usb device then returns to the wii menu. I think it starts to work when the dump happens because the indicator light on drive changes. I have a fat 32 partiton (that I use with my pc) with a little more then 600 gb and the rest partitioned as wbfs. Any help would be greatly amazing. Thank you in advace.

    i have a 1tb WD essentials external HDD works great. but i set my wfbs as the primary partition then added a fat32 as a secondary for windows. not sure if this helps but worth a shot?

    you are so fuking lucky i had to go through hell to figure all this out. anyway, here's the fix.
    start from scratch ok empty your wd book out. go to start menu > control panel > administrative tools > computer management > storage
    > disk management > format your drive. create a new partition (whatever space you want i set mines at 800 gb just for wii games) select primary
    then assign letter then click DO NOT FORMAT and then on the lower screen right click your wii storage partition and MARK AS ACTIVE. restart your wd book and start your WBFS manager 3.0. load up your storage then click format after that you should be DONEEEEEEE.

    So when I empty it out do I just delete everything in it or do I delete all the partitions so its all unallocated space? Also I noticed I can't format a large partition as fat32 (it had aready came with the partition). I was hopeing to not have to delete all my stuff but if this is the only way then thanks and I owe u more then that
