    USB Loader GX is on wii but doesn't work?

    so i get brought to the main menu and i click the USB loader GX..

    it keeps saying "waiting for your slow USB device : 30 seconds..

    counts down and brings me back to the main menu. did i not install something correctly?

    Check here to see if it is compatible.

    USB Devices Compatibility List - WikiTemp

    And your hard-drive has to be format to WBFS by either formatting with usb loader gx on wii or WBFS manager 3.0 on your pc.

    so the HD is on the compatible list.. it says i need to "You have to disable standby (set idle time to Never) with Seagate Manager before you format it!"

    i'm going to do that and report back

    the normal USB HDD advice to take not of is that the WBFS partition should be set primary and active.

    If you have a Seagate FreeAgent Desk then make sure you have cIOS38 rev14 installed, I don't think there are any issues with the Seagate FreeAgent Go.
