    Stub is an IOS that basically has all functionally removed from it. So if it's stubbed in one and missing in the other, it's effectively the same thing. So I wouldn't worry about that.

    IOS53 rev 5663 (No patches) is the correct version that should be installed.

    So other than the one Wii having an old HBC, not sure if that helps us.

    Essentially it's not the softmod. As this device draws its power via USB line, his problematic Wii likely supplies marginal mA for what the device needs. Wiis can vary on this. I would suspect an external power supply or a device that draws less mA would likely work.

    I will be trying this as well. Just ordered one from Amazon so will be a few days, but will also let you know how it goes.

    If this solves it that's kinda crappy though. USB is a standard that apparently Nintendo decided to not meet but still call it USB.

    There will be minor variances as to mA supplied. There's exact spec, and then within spec. And don't forget as an electronic device ages, it may be more prone to going out of spec (whether that's the quality of the components, or wear and tear, coupled with finite lifespan).

    I am almost positive this is the issue after reading this under USB on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB


    Some devices, such as high-speed external disk drives, require more than 500 mA of current[68] and therefore may have power issues if powered from just one USB 2.0 port: erratic function, failure to function, or overloading/damaging the port. Such devices may come with an external power source or a Y-shaped cable that has two USB connectors (one for power and data, the other for power only) to plug into a computer. With such a cable, a device can draw power from two USB ports simultaneously.[69] However, USB compliance specification states that "use of a 'Y' cable (a cable with two A-plugs) is prohibited on any USB peripheral", meaning that "if a USB peripheral requires more power than allowed by the USB specification to which it is designed, then it must be self-powered."[70]
    Perhaps this should be mentioned in the USB compatibility guide. If a drive does not have it's on external power source, this could be an issue on some Wiis.

    I got my powered USB Hub in today. As soon as I get home from work I will be giving it a try and let you guys know if it worked.

    Did not work. None of the USB Loaders even see the drive. They do still see the drive when it is directly plugged in. It shows all the games I put onto it. However, upon loading them it still loads extremely slowly, then freezes eventually, if it loads at all. I am at a complete loss here. Guess I am going to have to return the drive and find another one that has it's own power source.

    Same here as with LostWaldo. Using a powered USB just causes NOT initializing. None of the loaders sees the drive. So? A bit "more" power assistance is too much? And if so, does this implicate that port 0 does the same (a bit) on its own? Or is this conclusion too easy? Anyhow, now what? The problem remains very very mysterious. Any ideas are still welcome. But i'm affraid that we have to look for another drive here that does work.

    I think the Wii just does not see "through" the USB Hub. It does not see the USB Stick I know does work in the Wii either. Pretty sure the "solution" is going to be, "get a different USB HDD that is on the compatibility list." If I decide to purchase another one(can't return mine, gf threw away the box) I will make sure it has it's own power.
