I have looked everywhere and can't seen to get this thing running. I just purchased a Western Digital Elements 2tb and cannot seen to get it working what so ever. Can someone please point me to a guide where I might be able to get this thing up and running.
I've been using disc's up until this point
I fire up the usb loader and all I get is Error: couldn't open file!
Press any button to reboot wii...
I tried all the reformatting and such. This thing only formats to NTFS and exFAT. I don't know....
This was purchased today for me for my birthday. Is it usable or should I get the receipt and try to find something more compatable.
think the drive is listed here, check it.
USB Drive Compatibility List
there are two guides on here to prepare a drive and get it running
USB loading guide
mainly to use a wbfs formated drive
usb loading with Fat32
to use the drive in fat32 format (works accordingly with ntfs / for both you need updated cios (rev19+), rev20 preferred, and a loader which supports the drive format, cfg usbloader will do just fine)
good luck with your drive
& Happy Birthday
