    Reading HDD on Wii

    Hello everybody I'm new from the community, and I would like an help.

    I bought a Seagate ( i think it was seagate...yes ) and I connected it to an external box ( Atlantis Land ). It is a SATA hdd.
    The problem is that I format it with Wii Backup Manager in WBFS and I paste into it a game. On the pc works fine but when I try to
    connect it to the Wii and I run Cfg Loader it keeps stuck and doesn't load the HDD. If I try wiiflow it loads my channel but not the hdd.

    This happens only in the Wii, on my pc the HDD works just fine.

    Help please

    Make sure your drive is primary and active. You should also make sure it is compatible as well as the enclosure.



    btw...this has nothing to do with the section you posted it, I am moving it to the newbie forum.

    Look at THIS guide to set up your hdd. There is no need for wbfs format anymore.

    Yeah I mean, for getting a FAT32 system I should resize the space by making another partitions, otherwise gives me only exFAT

    EDIT: Trying this now..


    EDIT2: Okay I tried and it doesn't work. It seems it can't read/write games.

    Make sure your HDD is in the USB port closest to the edge

    Yes I tried both of them and it doesn't work.

    I tried with the Verbatim HDD External and works with that, but I would like to make it work with my HDD.

    Long story short: I tried NTFS/FAT32 with wbfs folder and I tried WBFS format too, when I load cfg it freezes.
    I tried to switch USB and either doesn't work.

    I don't know what to do :S

    I tried WiiFlow too.

    Is the drive a compatible one as Skell has already suggested? Because you followed the fat32 guide I assume that you set the games partition to Primary and Active and not logical... You didn't say...
