    @narse - did you see that LaCie 300GB HDD on the compatibility lists. I don't have them memorized, but keep a few problem HDDs in my active neuronal pathways. Certainly do check that you have followed at the instructions in this guide with regard to making the WBFS partition ACTIVE and PRIMARY. If you have made no errors, I don't recall that specific HDD as being compatible; I believe it is incompatible. So, reformat it and sneak it back to your Dad.

    Yes, indeed. For example - if you fail to report your failure, it will not be on either of the compatibility lists. More people tend to report success than failure unless they are reallly mad at the expenditure of time and money. Also, as time goes on, more people tend to use the lists to make their buying choices and avoid the other brands or avoid experimenting with the others so the data are skewed as are all spontaneous-volunteer-reported data.

    It is just my recollection that LaCie did not have a high success record for hacking on a number of platforms until about the 1TB units when more reports of success showed up. I think they had a mobile 320GB that someone got working, though. Remember, this is hacking use not PC use, OK? Cases like the Wii where the connection is not to a PC with all the expected bidirectional signalling.

    I understand this but I havent spent any money as of yet because I borrowed the drive to see if I could get it working or not, and as I have quite a large amount of time on my hands at the moment it gives me something to do.

    OK, fair enough as long as your expectations are realistic. Now that you have the HDD formatted correctly and all. Try playing with a number of the loaders-try NeoGamma because its code differs from all the USB Loaders. Also try uLoader after you install the Hermes IOSv5. Try several revisions of USB Loader-use the boot.dol version that runs from the HBC menu instead of installing as a wad file; make sure to try rev815 and 919 among your trials. Download the boot.dol files from HERE. and are placed in a folder inside the Apps folder on the SD card.

    Change the timing of plugging in the HDD, wait until the loader is actively doing a seek and then plug in the HDD into the outermost USb port of the Wii. That's it, change the timing and check out a number of the loaders that use different codes or IOSes to load-if all fail then that model is incompatible.

    Congratulations! Post back and let us know what you did. Also, because it may not be a stable sort of compatibility, always have backups. Great to hear of your success.

    great guide, easy to follow. I look forward to hooping onto the USB loader bandwagon, once my HDD is free from its computer-repair-tech-class restraints!

    -Wii Menu 4.2U / DARKCORP v1.1 / BootMii as boot2 / Preloader v0.30-
    -USB HDD / Wiiflow 2.0 / Triiforce / VC Image-Pack / cIOS Wads-
    Support WiiHacks
