    Someone updated my wii (wife) not Mplayer CE wont recognize USB HDD

    I cant remember exactly what I did to softmod my wii, it was a while ago and I was/am still a bit of a noob at this.

    The main reason I did it was so I could play anime from a HDD through the wii. It worked pretty well through Mplayer CE, despite some lockups and freezes.

    About a month ago, while I was at work, my wife says there was an update available as she was trying to learn the wii, so she ran it. I am now on wii 4.3u and Mplayer CE doesnt recognize the USB HDD anymore.

    My initial thought is to restore my wii and then re-softmod.

    I would like, after this is repaired, to be able to play games from usb HDD backups as well as use my USB HDD to watch anime from.

    I'm kinda hesitant to do anything from a position of ignorance, since I dont want to brick it. I did a google search and it seems like every link I went to to see how to restore always had people poo pooing the idea of a restore, in favor of fixing the issue. So here I am. I'll fix it if I can, but I need your expert help.

    Cheers,

    Keith
