So, I finally gave in, and backed up my old 60GB hard drive that i don't use anymore, formatted it in WBFS with a tool from these forums and i loaded usb loader 1.5 after installing the cIOS and it was sucsessfull. It asked me which source I wanted it to read, and I chose USB Mass storage. It said "Mounting Device please wait....(30 seconds timeout)" but after 30 seconds nothing happened. The light on my hard drive isn't doing anything, the wii is just frozen. When I try to power down, i get a code dump. The only thing I can say I did wrong, was I didnt realize my gamecube memory cards were both in at the time, but then again, the homebrew channel instructions said to take them out. They were in when I installed the homebrew channel and that works fine. Is there a way to try this again? Is that even the problem? I never did get it to ask me to partition or format, but if its already in WBFS why would it? So I reformatted the drive, in windows XP, but, when i connected it to the wii after that, knowing it shouldn't read it, it acted the exact same. Didnt ask me to format, just stalled at "mounting the drive" I also thought maybe the USB speed was too slow, so i tried installing the USB 2.0 dol file, but, it failed. That was after I installed the cIOS file for the loader. The USB 2.0 dol file when it failed claimed it was trying to install IOS36 i think it was, but if im not mistaken, thats the same file that the loader cIOS updated......so, maybe mines newer and already is 2.0??? Is there anything I can do to get this running?
