    im guessing your hdd isnt supporeted. or, maybe your partition is screwed. i use acronis disk director to make partitions. it works
    like a charm, every time. u should check it out.

    EDIT: waot do you have it working lol? it was kind of confusing

    try a high end format utility such as partition magic and format your drive its more likly to work if you use say partition magic to format the external to fat32 then use the PROGRAM ON THE WII usb loader 1.5 to patition the drive...IF the usb loader 1.5 app itself cannot format the drive you might try using a PC app that can format it to WBFS such as HowardC's WBFS Manager

    good luck!

    BTW http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grammar

    its not gramma and mine is terrible as is my PUNKtuation LOL

    (lol is my informal "period"...lol)
