    I ruined my external HDD. Maybe you can help me fix it?

    My mom lost some files on her computer. I set my external HDD as the location the recovery software could save recovered files to. Since then, whenever I plug my HDD into my Wii, the HDD makes a beeping sound and nothing on the Wii will find the HDD itself. Neogamma doesn't detect the wbfs partition, and none of my emulators detect the fat32 partition. I tried reformatting both partitions, nada. I'm about to attempt to reformat the entire drive at once but something tells me that the problem is deeper. Any ideas?

    EDIT: And here's the *new* sysCheck for your perusing pleasure.

    Since you've already monkeyed with it, I'd recommend ditching the WBFS partition alltogether and making the whole thing FAT32. This is the same route I went earlier this year. Theres a Comprehensive Fat32 guide here that explains everything. The con to it is you'd have to re-rip your games, but the upshot is it should work for everything. Using easeus (on windows PCs) makes it more easier too.



    If you still have issues, grab syscheck 2.1 and rerun, will give more info on what you have installed. But it would appear that you should at least be able to use the drive.

    The problem is with the HDD me thinks....

    What happends when you plug it into the computer... does it see the HDD or does it do the same thing!

    also what is the DIR structure of the HDD

    I've tried formatting the entire drive as FAT32, and I still have the same problem. Windows doesn't have an issue interacting with the drive at all. It's just the Wii. Someone I spoke to said that it could be that the enclosure the SATA drive is in {NICE WORD} and I should try another or a sata-to-usb cable. And after I formatted the HDD, I didn't put a directory structure on it. I left it blank, just to see if anything on the Wii would see the HDD and to see if the incessant beeping would stop. Neither happened...should I put a dir structure on the drive to see what happens?

    Good to see you got it working. I've heard the Wii can be picky with enclosures.
