    Thanks in advance...
    No, not normal. Your Miis should be just fine playing from a backup game copy off the USB HDD. Any other problems? Are your Wii channels all installed, updated, and working?

    Talking Complete success

    so now im gonna copy my sd card files to my Wii HDD FAT32 partition and hope i will be sd free and playying my ISO's that have been WBFS Manager 3.0 converted to take up less space

    whew, no one said it was gonna be easy

    i guess one more thing for me to ask is:
    how do i ensure that the FAT32 partition is the 1st or primary (or whatever it needs to be) when i plug the Wii HDD into the Wii?
    i guess i need a little more forum hunting

    just to let eveyone know i have had complete success, all the tuts are perfect, just a little more instruction for vista 64 bit woulda been nice but i found the pieces of info i needed, WIIHACKS ROCKS!!!!
    4.2u // cIOS38 rev14 // NeoGamma r8 b7 (IOS249 rev 14) // USB Loader GX r850 // WAD Manager v1.4 // PriiLoader// WBFS Manager 3.0.1 // Seagate 500GB Expansion ST305004EXY101 // HBC v1.0.8 // "the dreaded D3-2 chip" // Vista 64 bit

    I followed the tutorial and formatted my SimpleTech 250gb USB powered drive.Games load up and play perfect but after about 15 min of playing,the Wii shuts off.This does not happen if I am playing a game from a disc so it has to be something with the HDD.Anyone else have this problem?I'm on 4.1u,on a 2006 model Wii,and using USB Loader GX to load the games.

    You can't, there was no USB on the GC, so USB HDD can not be emulated through GC code.
    Please remember your manners - say Thank You if someone helped , it doesn't hurt

    I think your HDD is going into sleep mode you should be able to disable it.

    A chipmodded Wii is only good for playing your game backup discs. To play from an external USB HDD, you will minimaly need to install onto the Wii: HBC (which you have done), install a cIOS (there are two guides on this site to install cIOS in either a 4.2 or 3.1-4.1 Wii), and a USB Loader. To manage the HDD itself, you will need to download and install WBFS Manager onto your PC HDD.
