    Unknown why you cannot rip a game from a working DVD-R to the USB HDD. Should work, unknown why it isn't in your case. In fact sometimes when a game ISO doesn;t add to the WBFS drive well, that is what is done-burn to DVD and then rip using the Wii drive.
    Same problem with USB Loader GX .29, can't rip back-ups, only retails disc. The disc that I've tried have been from three different people/burners. Any suggestions to help will be much appreciated.

    Did NeoGamma install OK-that's a quick way to see if cIOS installed correctly-start NeoGamma and you should see IOS249rev something read out on the screen and that will show if cIOS is installed.
    Everything installed good no error from hbc even Ios249rev nothing dectede
    error. Then I tried the other way from Wii manager, sd it stilled block me throught install. I'm tired to install the Hdd now.

    I tried this with a Buffalo Ministation 300gb drive and it doesn't seem to be compatible. Guess I'll try to find a cheap enclosure and swith the hdd into it and see if i can get it working.

    Some Guidance Please

    Hi;

    I have a Wii with Divekey installed but thanks to NSMB I also began getting into softmoding my Wii.

    Now I am very interested in using a USB HDD and need help to make the right choice with the HDD selection.

    I have read the compatibility list and I am contemplating to get the Western Digital My Book Essential Edition 2.0 1 TB External hard drive Model No. WDH1U10000.

    I am choosing it because, (a) I can buy a Recertified unit for only $95.00, (b) it is 1TB and (c) it seems Western Digital is the way to go here.

    1) Does anyone have experience with this drive? Is it recommended?

    2) Also, when I shop it around the model number comes up as WDH1U10000N (Note the extera letter N at the end!!!). Is this the same drive?

    Thanks in advance.

    I was just wondering about this

    Homebrew apps and USB Loader files can be stored on the FAT partition of the HDD
    I have another HDD that is formatted to NTFS with my movies and music and such on it, but when plugged into my Wii, MPlayer will not recognize it. So I am assuming that the Wii does not recognize NTFS formatted HDD. But when I plug in a USB memory stick FAT32 format with movies on it, MPlayer recognizes it. Just wondering if anybody else has a problem with Wii reading NTFS formated HDD. If this is the case then perhaps that part of the tutorial needs to read -

    Homebrew apps and USB Loader files must be stored on a FAT partition of the HDD

    Stomp-the new MPlayer CE is compatible with NTSF. Homebrew apps stored in the same file structure of an SD card will be read from a FAT partition, of there is no SD card in place. There are also a few other apps that recognize the NTSF-formatted-can't remember them specifically, but figured some might use them and so used the softer phrasing. Thanks, Stomp.
