Ok, last night I used Waninkoko's Firmware Downgrader to upgrade my firmware from 3.2U (Originally cracked with the Twilight Princess hack) to 4.1U, and then I installed the newest cIOS38rev14. Before I did the update, Loader GX and USB Loader 1.5 were both reading my USB drive (a Seagate FreeAgent 320gb) just fine. Now when loading up either USB loader, I get a 'Waiting for your slow USB device' message and a countdown from 20 to 0. I've searched the forums here (and elsewhere) and the best advice I've found so far is to make sure the HDD is plugged in before the Wii is powered on, and to make sure the HDD is plugged into the slot closest to the edge of the wee (bottom when laying flat). I thought that my WBFS partition may have been corrupted, so I reformatted the entire disk with FAT and then used WBFS Manager 3.0 to reformat the disk back into WBFS. I put on game on the HDD and went to plug it back into the wii and I get the same issue. I think it may have something to do with the update, since the console was reading the HDD just before the update, and its not reading it now, just after the update. My update process was as follows: 1. loaded the cIOS38rev14 file onto my SD card and opened it in the HBC to install it. I chose IOS249, and installed via network. 2. loaded the Firmware Downgrader onto my SD card and opened it in the HBC. I upgraded from 3.2 to 3.4(or 5, i can't remember) to 4.0 to 4.1 3. loaded the latest USB Loader GX version (1.0) onto my Sd card and ran it.. does not detect the hard drive Am I missing anything obvious thats making it not load?
