Sorry if i was misleading, It was not intended as a workaround to get the update but to stop the looping.
Still looping.. Downloaded and executed installer into a new directory.. Installs 6.0.7 and then offers update 7.0.1, Downloads and extracts then says there is an update...
@Shag. As a test have you tried
a. testing this on an account which is only a standard user
b. disabling UAC and seeing what happens when you run ModMii. - re enable aftwards
c. checked NTFS folder permissions make sure your user account has full control.
Bug to report in 4.7.4
When you use L = Load Download Queue (when you have some saved) Modmii crashes with an error "The syntax of the command is incorrect"
The error is from lines 2042 and 2043
I personally have always avoided WD HDD for the simple reason that where I used to work, they were mainly used and they were forever getting replaced. I have always bought Seagate and had one Maxtor (before Seagate bought them). It's my opinion that Seagate are the best makers of HDD.
I run snes9xgx loading from my NAS storage but the principal is the same
smbip is the IP address of your PC
smbshare - is the share name of the folder
smbuser = username set up in windows
smbpwd = password on windows user (if set)
you might need to enable simple file sharing on vista...
I would argue that just because Tantric has the same HDD as you doesn't mean that your HDD is fine.
You say its fine when run from SDHC but not from HDD.. Seems then to point to either your hard drive, associated cabling or USB port.
Dare I ask if you have attempted to reformat it, different...
