    Any other suggestions very welcome and I appreciate the help so far.
    I know this has nothing to do with your problem, but you could try to run games from your HDD with the NES, SNES or GBA emulator and see if IOS58 and the emulators can read your harddrive. It still doesn't tell you if it's the drive that works with USB loaders or not, but you have to start somewhere, right?

    Still, a Western Digital drive that doesn't work with the Wii? I haven't heard of it before.

    Very frustrating this issue now because it only started happening since I got the new 500gb drive, going to try one one of the 320gb drives I've previously used (successfully) and see what outcome I get once I've finished work.
    I might re-format my new drive and start over again as another option, again I'm surprised to about the drive not working as it's only the next size up from one I've used before with no issues!

    I first noticed this happening on games I play regularly so I started trying random games and still the same problem.

    Strange. You should re-format the drive and try if it works then. If not, you could try to use an other harddrive.

    EDIT:
    I still don't think it's your harddrive (it could be formatted incorrectly, but I mean if it's compatible with the Wii). I mean, if you can browse through the list of games, change the settings and watch the game covers etc., I can hardly imagine it's a harddrive issue. If it'd be incompatible, the USB loader will show a time-out error and return to the Wii Menu/Homebrew Channel. Though this still doesn't prove anything, it does lower the chance that the harddrive is incompatible. It'd be weird if the 320 GB and 1TB models do work, but the 500 GB model doesn't.

    Sorry for the delay but finally got to the route of the problem and it looks like it was down to a bad format, re-formatted the drive and ripped some games which were causing me issues before and thankfully no problems so far.
    Thanks for your help I now have a happy daughter again.
