    Just a quick one for this. I have been running my backed up games from DVD but, after having to re-rip them a few times (they get scrached up fairly quicky with the kids and stop working). I was thinking about going the hard drive loading method.

    I wanted to re-use a 500gb IDE/PATA drive for this, is this possable to get one of these...(you can get them on ebay for about $13-15)

    Newegg.com - MASSCOOL UHB-330U Aluminum with mirror finish 3.5" USB 2.0 External Enclosure

    Format to FAT32 then connect it to my "softmodded" Wii (I have not fully read the process but, if this drive will work, I'll be 1/2 way there). Will this work or what do I need to be able to use a older drive like this (trying to save $$ if possable because I have most of the hardware) ????

    Thanks in advance !!!

    Results are hit at miss with those cheap enclosures (so I've heard). So no gaurantee that it will work but you can try it if you like.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Thanks, Just by chance I ran by a Rat Shack and they had a "Gigaware" branded Enclosure from $49.99 to $19.99 on clearance. I guess I will be skippping the really cheap one and trying this. I hope it works, I guess even at $50, it saves me to cost and time of reburning discs...

    Thanks again ! I hope this works out.

    Edit:
    If someone is looking this up to convert a old IDE or PATA drive to USB, this enclosure works perfect. I got WiiFlow working with 15 games right away.

    Radio shack part #25-421 (on clearance, so YMMV, checked every store in a 50 mile area in CT and every store had them)

    Gigaware 3.5" IDE Hard Drive Enclosure : Drive Enclosures | RadioShack.com

    Just wanted to help if anyone is in the same boat.

    When I try to run my game (nsmbw) I get the "cIoS249rev18...Upgrade IOS249 or choose a different IOS." message. It then says "set_frag: -128 ERROR: setWBFS: -128"

    I followed the instructions on updating IOS249 but the same error keeps coming up.

    Q. When I load games I get this error : cIOS249rev18-cIOS222v4-IOS223v4-IOS224v5 or higher required to load games from FAT32. Upgrade IOS249.

    A. FAT32 Loading does not work with Rev 17. You can use Hermes cIOS 222 v4 instead (Or cIOsx Rev 19 or 20).
    Quote from the guide. What version of cIOS249 do you have installed? You can use the 222 revision of the loader if you have Hermes 222 installed. Run a syscheck and look at the report. Should say..

    IOS249 v19 or 20
    IOS222 v4
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Look in the recommended guides section.

    Just use the 222 revision of whatever loader you are using instead of the 249. Should work fine after that.
