    Question HDD not recognized by any loader

    I've got a softmodded Wii 4.1. I tried the loaders Configurable USB loader, Neogamma, uLoader, USB Loader GX, and WiiFlow, but none of them can see my Porsche Lacie 500 GB (which has been confirmed to work).

    The drive is definitely formatted WBFS completely, as WBFS Manager recognizes it, as well as the five games that I put on it using the program. It's also connected to the right port (the one on the left). I also tried turning on the drive only when asked to do so, but that didn't work, either.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance!

    Last I knew, LaCie had various incarnations of HDs and controllers. The link you gave mentions nothing specially related to the "Porsche" version. You were given a link as a response to your introduction post; did you follow that guide, or are you thrashing in the dark?

    "Porsche" is just the box's designer, so it doesn't really matter. What matters is I have the Lacie 500 GB, which appears to have been confirmed to be working. I followed that guide and am stuck at "To Play Wii Games from USB Loader GX"; I can't load my USB drive with the USB Loader GX.

    And you thought creating another thread instead of posting this in Gen3SF's guide would somehow be the solution? If you're aware of a guide and are following a guide, the questions go there --- not in YAT (Yet Another Thread).

    I thought posting another thread would help because when I searched for my problem online, most were individual threads on these forums (that are slightly different to my own problem, though, and that are now locked because they're so old). I'll try that thread.

    I have/had a lacie drive and could only get it working by booting through wiiflow222. Try keeping the drive turned off -->Go into WiiFlow222 (not 249) --> Wait for the screen that says please connect a usb device--> Hit power switch on hdd --> If you see the wii drive flash blue a couple of times it is loading --> You may have to install a game to initialise the drive.......

    You do have to do this procedure everytime unless you have wiiflow booting up as soon as you turn your wii on.
