    Sorry, I was ill and missed following up with you:

    So, you have a 3.1Wii with a chip mod that allows you to play backup games. You want to play off your WD HDD. You have gone thru this tutorial, but have seen error codes; further, your HDD is not working with the Wii.

    First, lets see if you set up the HDD ok; WDs usually are troublefree. Check your steps against these:

Plug your new USB HDD into PC
    2. Right click on My Computer
    3. Go to Manage
    4.Click on Disk Management
    5.With your disk drive loaded and visible: right click on new HDD and choose delete volume
    6. Right click on new HDD in lower part or graphical portion of window and click New
    7. a)Choose to assign a letter to your new drive
    b)choose NOT TO FORMAT when you create your new partition [note that you can choose size of partition-you can leave some for FAT32 or NTFS in a later step]
    c) make your new partition primary and active
    8.Run WBFS Manager 3
    9. Select your new drive letter and click Format.

    Now to the Wii: plug your WD HDD into the lower or left USB port depending on Wii position. Boot up Wii, from sysmenu activate USB Loader GX. To rip game disc, push (+) button and insert game disc into Wii drive.

    Problems with cIOS38rev14. As you have a 3.1 Wii you don't need thr TBR steps. If you have been repeating the installation of cIOS38rev14 (Step3d) 2 options to try:

    1. Maybe the DL or extraction was bad; try again from this installer cIOS38_rev14-Installer.rar
    2. Let's try a different cIOS. Try cIOS36rev10: cIOS36_rev10-Installer.rar

    Use NeoGamma to launch your backup game discs.

    Great tutorial.
    i moded my 2nd wii on my own following these steps and it worked like a charm.
    i just have one question, after the wii has been moded, can all the files that were used to mod the wii be erased from the sd card or do we need to keep them there?
    sorry if its a stupid question but, im still trying to learn and being as carefull as i can.
    thanks in advance.

    the only thing you should keep is the nand backup, which you must save in your pc, if you have any. The others can be erased

    Hi gen3sf,

    Thank you very much for your help, I hope your feeling well now.

    I have already done exactly what you have instructed re the USB loader GX (partitioning/ formatting with WBFS manager and even adding games) with same result (message saying Waiting for your slow USB device).

    I also tried reinstalling CIOS38 Rev14 then CIOS36 rev10 with same error message (1035), so that also did not go well.

    I went over the USB loader GX guide and I found a mention of installing a rev of IOS222/223 by hermes. I did that and this time USB loader loaded its GUI (never seen that before, so it seemed Iam getting somewhere).

    It gave a choice to use IOS349 or IOS 222; first choice would result in same as above (30 sec count down and drive not found), using IOS222 would result in a complete freeze of USB loader GX.

    Reading further in GX manual I arrived at this link http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=6531 for downloading cIOS38r14_installer.

    In installation instructions it said to select IOS249 to use and not IOS36 as described in dogeggs guide here Step 3-d.

    I did that and this time I did not get the 1035 error and every thing worked like magic from there. ,USB Loader booted found the drive and all was well

    Just thought I post this in case someone gets in the same fix I was in.

    So finally I have it now , a million thanks for taking the time and effort to help me.

    One last thing; Do you think I should update to 4.1 ?

    Glad your Wii works for you now. The Hermes IOS222/223 installation will come in useful should you be into Guitar Hero 5 or Rock Band. USB Loader GX offers you the option to boot using either IOS249 or IOS222. The Hermes installation addresses a problem with USB instruments and microphones working especially in Wiis such as yours that use an external USB HDD.

    Updating your Wii to 4.1 is a matter of opinion, your games should work fine w/o it-they depend on IOS's. 4.1 will allow you to use SDHC and SD cards of larger capacity. Additionally, 4.1 allows you to run channels from the SD and opens more system menu pages for your channel display. Whether these features are needed or not will sway your decision on the upgrade.

    Enjoy your Wii.

    After I completed step 5b when I click "Systemmenu Hacks" it says "hacks for your systemmenu version (v353) were found No."

    What do I do to get it working? A problem that might have caused it is probably installing preloader before updating to 4.1. I was having a little trouble updating and I accidental installed preloader before the update. Any suggestions?
