    The hard drive is getting powered on. It's a WD Passport Essential 320GB, it powers on only through USB and doesn't need to be attached to the power outlet.

    I also tried it with a friend's hard drive and it's also being powered on. Is there any way I can transfer something through the USB port to check if it is working correctly?

    Try and update your cIOS and make sure you are using the latest version of the loader.

    This Happened you my wii as well. Out of the blue the HDD will not load and syscheck hangs at IOS9. The weird thing is nothing has changes since when it WAS working.

    I have yet to take any steps to fix it. Another strange thing was that the media player is able to read the FAT partition of the HDD.

    Hi guys, hope this helps. turns out I had plugged the USB hdd in the wrong USB port. to my defence, the HDD had a Y-splitter and you needed to plug both in to work.

    As for the IOS9, I just had to delete the mothballed IOS10, and everything was fine.

    moral of the story - please make sure the hdd is plugged into USB port 1 (the port closest to the top edge of the wii).

    You mean port 0, the closest to the bottom of the wii.

    try updating to cIOSd2x. I just used the same guide to update my wii, and then Uloader stopped being able to see my drive without powering it on and then off. After updating, everything works better...
