    getting usb hdd to work

    Hi guys, I followed the guide here to use a usb hdd, http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...tmod-only.html My wii has been softmodded for 3 years and I use discs to play, but now that my kids are older I wanted to try the usb setup. After following the guide I tried using usb loader gx as a channel and through homebrew. When I use the channel it just reboots the wii. When I try the homebrew it just hangs. I have two usb drives that are on the compatible list. I also tried using the old sd/usb loader from waninkoko, and when I click on usb mass storage device I get error! ret=-1.

    The only modded file I see in WAD manager is cIOS249-IOS-36-rev07.wad I think this maybe the problem, but I am not sure which file to install. Thanks for any help.

    Try cfg usb loader or wiiflow. They're more stable than GX.

    Hi, thanks for your response. I tried cfg usb loader, it said device not responding, for both usb hdds. I tried both usb ports, nada. Is it possible I have to update my cios 249?
