Hello there. I have been modding my Wii for a good number of years now, so I don't consider myself to be a noob. Problem: I am currently trying to load a properly formatted external USB Hard Drive onto a Black Wii (running 4.3U). I also have a soft modded White Wii, which works perfectly fine with both of my Hard Drives. I am working with 2 separate hard drives here - One is a SATA and one is an IDE, and they are inside of generic, USB-powered enclosures, respectively. Both Hard Drives load up perfectly on my White Wii with USB Loader GX 3.0. The Black Wii does not load them at all. I have noticed a strange issue with the ports in which I plug it into. For the White Wii, I have always plugged the Hard Drive into Port 0 (the port nearest to the edge) without plugging in the 2nd USB plug. With the Black Wii, however, I noticed that the light on the Hard Drive enclosures will not come on unless it is plugged into the 2nd, "inside" USB Port (Port 1). This tells me that the USB Drives draw more power from 1 port than the other. Am I correct on this? Despite this, when I try loading these Hard Drives with USB Loader GX they will just not load. I am running CIOS250. I have hacked the Black Wii as fully and as correctly as I possibly can. I used Multi Mod Manager to install the IOS's, and followed all the tutorials to the letter. I have even tried switching apps such as using Configurable USB Loader instead - all to no avail - they will not load the Hard Drives. I have no idea what is so different about the Black Wii than the White Wii (beyond Wii system software, and the disc drive's firmware), but there is clearly some kind of difference in regards to these USB ports. I do not know what else I can do. I would not have created a new thread here if I had not completely exhausted all my options. I leave the rest to you guys. Thank you all so much.
