    new external drive not working

    i would appreciate some help

    my external drive enclosure stopped working so ive bought a new samsung m3 1tb 3.0 usb external drive, i had a google before i bought this drive and read that this drive does work with the wii
    ive partitioned the drive in 2 and used wbfs manager to format one of the partitions into wbfs, ive transferd some games to the drive.
    when i go to wii usb loader v1.5 i either get the error ret = 1, or the wii freezes and when i hit the power button i get exception (DSI) occurred,

    wii flow has never worked nor usb loader gx so i cant try them.

    also to say the samsung drive does power up and i can hear the drive spinning, and ive probably not done anything to the wii for a couple of years so not sure if theres something that needs updating at all.

    thanks

    It almost sounds as is your mod is out of date, are you plugged into USB0 (closest to the edge)?
    WBFS is obsolete the wii can now read from NTFS and FAT32 partitions.
