So I bought a new harddrive(2tb WD My Book USB 3.0), copied some old contents from my previous harddrive to the new one (super easy with USB 3.0) Plugged it into the wii, everything worked fine. Loaded cfg loader 61, all games showed, awesome. Next day, turned on the wii, went to cfg loader, it tried mounting the device (light on harddrive was blinking) didn't mount and kicked me back to system menu. Tried going to homebrew channel via system menu, it froze. Hardreset = corruption. Nothing is on the harddrive, tried reformatting it, but it still has all the used space from the corruption. Now I am trying get databack to recover it... Question is, has anyone had any problem with this harddrive? Can I do anything to prevent this corruption or am I going to expect something like this from now on? Edit: Going to wipe harddrive and return it.
