    hdd wont load. error (ret=-1)

    i have tried using the other usb port. but it doesnt seem to be the problem.
    i have used my friends sd card with the loader and his hdd. it works
    but when i do the same, with my files, it doesnt.
    anyone know a possible solution?
    thanks

    thanks for the quick reply
    i tried doing both but it gives me the same error message.
    there technically shouldnt be anything wrong. i have the exact same files that my friend used on my wii but his hdd is able to load while mine is unable to load and times out after 30 secs.
    any other possible explainations?
    any help is much appreciated.
    thanks

    try turning on your HD first let it wake up then run your loader
    or
    try these links, see if the same problem had been asked before

    Possibly formatted the USB drive incorrectly or is unsupported

    in disk management make sure your wbfs partition is first and set to primary.......

    save the games first then format the drive to fat32 then back to wbfs
