    scratch this ^^ seagate's are EDIT... after a month the HDD just started to play up & make the dvd tray light up all the time almost like a strobe light & not to long after it got the "click of death" causing my wii to freeze constantly. so i took it back & got a WD portable 750gb & the problem has gone

    CRIKEY!! maybe it's clicking because of the plastic wrap. lol. That doesn't sound good. I have that same drive but it is still working great after 3 months. How much data was on it? Apparently, when I was transferring .wbfs files to/from my external hard drive or when it was formatted with EASEUS there was a remaining hidden folder and extra recycle bin still on the system. I only had to go into folder options under tools, then on the view tab there is a radio button for "hide protected operating system files (recommended)". I unticked that and was able to see the files and erase them. Now my external hard drive works on the wii. I noticed that my usb drive was not detected in the homebrew channel, but my jump drive was seen; which led me to the solution. Thank you for this wonderful tutorial crank and cile!!!

    Nah, clicking harddrives are a sign of them dying.
    If your harddrive ever clicks and still works, backup all data asap

    Few questions please. I'm at the part of the guide where I choose to split my iso into two. Unbelievably my 4.7gb iso split into ONE and its only 386mb.. REAAALLYY!! Am I saving that much space? Secondly, I'm noticing the games that have that type of amazing compression or whatever it is are also pal? Am I correct, PAL games are that much smaller than ntsc/u? If that is in fact true, why bother to ever clog your HDD with ntsc discs? What is their advantage to PAL if any?

    You likely have a small game..so when converted to .wbfs it can be anywhere from 100MB - 4GB. It has nothing to do with it being pal. If the file is larger then 4GB when converting it will split the file into 2 parts.

    Ok so I have the Western Digital WD Elements 1.5 TB (which tested fine based on chart) with Configurable USB Loader, I formatted it to fat32 and everything seems fine.... my problem is when I try to install the game from disk onto the hdd is freezes throughout the process with every game I tried. I even made a WBFS partition and used the gx loader and same thing happened. Please point me in the right direction of what the problem might be, thanks a bunch!

    Okay get the 222 version Of Cfg and try that instead (get it in my sig). Replace the boot.dol. Then open the config file for Cfg with a text editor or the Cfg configurator and change the boot IOS to 222. Try to rip again.

    (If you don't want to edit the config manually just remove it from your SD/USB and it will create a new one when you start the 222 version of Cfg)
    Damn I suck!!!!
