    Question Games are freezing from USB Hard Drive.

    I have a freezing problem with games on my hard drive.
    I think the hard drive is the cause, and I may have to backup/reformat and put the
    games back on again. But before doing that I did a sysCheck.

    I don't know how to interpret the cause of the freezing. It could be the cios on the wii
    or something else.

    I noticed that if I put in my retail copy of the game and tried to play it, it works perfectly without freezing. The problem is with the games on the hard drive.
    I have an 1GB Sandisk SD card (with 24MB left) and a 60GB HD.

    I think this started when I almost filled the HD up with metroid trilogy and other m.
    I also have priiloader installed blocking the updates.

    Could someone tell me if the problem lies in the cios wads or hard drive issues?
    Here is my sysCheck. Thanks for your help.

    Syscheck and cIOS looks ok, other than my suspicion of darkcorp. Are you able to play the games at all? For a minute before they freeze? Or is it immediate? Probably the hard drive and a spindown issue. Is the drive on the compatability list?

    Load your games with IOS222/223 and re-install your games to see if it makes any difference. Otherwise it's probably a problem with your harddrive.

    Yes I am able to load the games up to the main menu. The games freeze when it tries to load the 3d envirement or the game itself.

    I've made a mistake on the HD size. Its actually 80gb.
    Hitachi travelstar
    Model hts541080g9sa00

    I'll check the compatability list.
    4.1U Softmod
    Hitachi 80GB
