    Ca Usb hdd help please generic thread name of the day

    Ok I have a HP usb hdd working just fine on 2 wiis, I did this drive awhile back but now I have decided to do 2 more drives so I looked at the compatibility list and they are on there one is a WD 1tb model WDBAAU0010HBK states as working and the other is a iomega 1tb GDHDU as well listed as working, now I have tried and tried and tried I have followed almost every tut I could find tried diff things like using wbfs fat32 and so on but niether wii will recognize these drives, Ive tried diff usb loaders as well made sure certain cios are installed and everything, one wii is a 4.1u the other is a 4.3u like i said the HP drive works on both, but trying to clone for my brother.

    any any any help would be great
    thanks

    Could be wrong! But,did you partition the drives?
    Sometimes when people partition their drives
    they forget to make the WBFS partition
    Primary and Active!
    Here's a great tutorial by Favs on partitioning drives!

    Hope this helps!

    OK heres an idea. Not sure if it will work, but it is worth a shot. Make sure your drive is UNPLUGGED. Start up USB Loader GX. When it starts counting down "Waiting for your slow USB device", plug in your drive to the left usb port. It should then recognize it and give you the option to format. Let me know if this works!

    usbloader gx opens fine when your old drives are connected, correct?
