    hARD DRIVE TOO BIG?????

    Hi all, have recently softmodded my wii, i then bought a 500gb hard drive, now most of the games keep crashing just as i start to play them. Could this be due to the fact that the hdd is too big? is there a max capacity hdd the wii can handle if so does anyone know wat it is??? any help greatly appreciated. Tom

    I am using a 1tb drive formatted to WBFS so I don't think that's the problem.

    Size isn't the issue. There's a link to a compatibility list in the usb loading link in my signature. If it says its working on there its probably user error.

    you can play both... but that does help in fixing it.... you are trying to play NTSC games on a PAL system. in the loader you have to force region settings to your region, and as for you PAL games idk?!?!?

    what loader are you using to load the ISO from the HDD.... in the loader you have to force region settings so if your on a NTSC console and have a PAL iso you have to force NTSC on it (sometimes it works and sometimes it does not) and vise verse for PAL to NTSC, or whatever combo depending on what region your wii is...

    also there was no menu that came up when i installed hb channel that would let me make the nand backup, can i format the wii and start again using a new mod package that includes everything as i just did it using bits from different sites, if so is there a tutorial? sorry for being such a pain, as you can tell im very new to this, and its all a bit confusing for my tiny brain!!!!
