    USB Loader - device not responding...please help!

    Hi,

    I hacked my first wii last night using the excellent guide by mauifrog:
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html

    Everything has gone great, but I can't seem to mount the USB HDD using the loader.
    I've hunted around this site and on google and have tried all the advice (change cable/change port/format fat32/format fat32 first, then WBFS...)
    I have also tried 2 different models of drive in two different EXT enclosures (one seagate, the other WD).
    I've tried fat32, but have also tried WBFS a few times using WBFS manager 3.0
    I'm running Vista 64bit on my laptop (and yes, used am using the WBFS manager for 64 bit).
    Not sure about IOS and stuff, I just went bu mauifrog's guide, so whatever the files are there are the ones on my WII.

    It even says 'unable to mount device', when trying to boot the HBC loader
    I've tried changing jumper on HDD from Cable select, to master and to slave

    Does anyone have any thoughts.

    I still have the SD card in with the app pack stuff extracted on it. I haven't done anything with it yet, should I have?

    Thanks, and, great site.
    I apologise if the answer is on here somewhere, but I've been searching for 2 hours straight and cannot find anything that I have not already tried.

    Have you tried using a fat32 formatted drive instead of wbfs. Is the games partition set to primary and active?

    Hi,

    Yes, I've just tried using fat32 again and the partition IS set to active and is primary.
    I've tried adding games to the fat32 via wii backup manager.
    I then went into USB loader (not sure whether this is the way to view the games when using fat3, but don't know what else to try).
    Still didn't mount.
    Then tried homebrew browser again and didn't mount again.

    This is just a temp drive anyway as I have tonight bought a 2TB WD my book. But want to get it all sorted now so when new drive comes, all is working fine.

    Please help.
    After reading a few different threads, I would now prefer to stick with the FAT32 system as apparently it's better to manage.
    Can anyone help me??

    The drive I'm using at the mo is a WD 250GB and I've looked on the compatibility list and it says ok.

    Cheers again

    When you are putting the games on the fat32 partition are you putting them in side a folder named 'wbfs' ?

    It could well be your usb enclosure...

    Yeah, theyre in the wbfs/ How do I access the games? Is it still via the USB Loader CFG thingy.
    Don't know whether it helps, but upon booting the USN loader, it comes up in the bottom right hand corner 248 frag

    Cheers
