Are some Wiis just incompatible with USB HDD?

    I'm pretty sure that this has happened to a small amount of people. The Wii just refuses to mount your HDD. Now, I've tried everything. Tried a combination of cIOS249 revisions 14 - 17 with a diferent range of USB loaders (Waninkokos, cfgUSB, USBLoader GX, NeoGamma). Even tried Hermes IOS 222 & 223 (mload & yal). Tried using fat and WBFS. The same HDDs are mounted on other Wiis. I softmodded about 4 Wiis now and there is only one Wii that just wont mount anything. On the others I didn't even had to try that hard. cIOS 249 rev 15 and Neogamma were enough. Curiously the Wii is able to mount FAT32 on Hombrew Browser. I also was able to mount NTFS on GeeXBoX. I know the HDDs are compatible, I know I have the right cIOSs. Short of diving in the source code I have done everything that could be possibly tried. Are more stubborn Wiis out there? Has anyone else had this problem?
