Hey guys, so I have an error I can't troubleshoot for some reason. For years I had this hard drive plugged into the Wii with no issues, and up until today it worked great with my Wii U (just last week I played Galaxy on it). But today it won't detect the hard drive in CFG Loader Mod (latest nightly). It's giving me the error "Device is not responding" and "(ret = -1)". I can still launch GC games through Nintendont and other apps work fine to launch (and it is detected by Windows just fine), and it is detected to launch apps through HBC. I just can't launch Wii games in CFG. Any thoughts?

Maybe it's fragmented? Try defragging it

Already tried it, no fragmentation problem. Chkdsk didn't turn up any errors too. And yet I was able to play Sonic 1 last night on Genesis Plus GX... I'm baffled why this program won't work. USB Loader / Wii Flow won't work either.

When you are trying to solve a problem(troubleshoot), it is best to limit as many new variables as possible.
If the hard drive worked in CFG Loader Mod before the latest nightly, trying rolling back to the last known working build and then try updating one new build at a time until you find or eliminate that as a possbile cause of your problem.

But that's the thing. Literally nothing changed. I didn't update any software, so no need to roll back anything. Besides, that wouldn't be the cause if USB Loader and Wii Flow weren't working. Just last time I used it a week ago, it worked and now it doesn't. Should I post a syscheck?

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    I often lurked around here for the 3DS and Wii related stuff until I created an account just to help out.
  • Badcatalex @ Badcatalex:
    I also have been busy with school and drawing, and tinkering with Amazon's Kindle e-Readers
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Badcatalex, Ooh, what discoveries have you made from those Kindles?
  • Badcatalex @ Badcatalex:
    they're not consoles but are cool, eink is underrated
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    I know what Kindles are, they're like an e-book reader.
  • Badcatalex @ Badcatalex:
    uh none, I don't have coding skills lol
    they are cool though and I wish people would use them more
  • Badcatalex @ Badcatalex:
    I have several Kindles too, even a 1st gen one
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Badcatalex, I like reading hardback books instead of using my PC for programming but then again those sorts of books for vintage CPUs are expensive.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Perhaps if I come across an e-book reader for cheap, then I suppose I could use that.
  • Badcatalex @ Badcatalex:
    I actually got a free kindle oasis 3 because of it, since it was how amazon compensated 1st gen device owners when the 2g/3g services shut down here in the US
  • Badcatalex @ Badcatalex:
    (1st gen kindle, 2nd gen kindle, and the kindle dx all had no wifi, only cellular data over 2g/3g)
  • Badcatalex @ Badcatalex:
    you can get ereaders for cheap if you know where to look
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    I could maybe convert PDF files into a compatible format for the Kindle.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Badcatalex, Yes. I'll maybe look at some point.
  • Badcatalex @ Badcatalex:
    places like woot and unclaimed luggage are great for finding cheap devices, as is amazon ware house
  • Badcatalex @ Badcatalex:
    also kindles take pdfs natively as long as they aren't too big
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Oh yes, Amazon Warehouse, that's where I got my Audio-Technica headphones from.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Those were around £150 iirc.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    But I got it for around £75.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Later, after months of use, the ear pieces broke.
  • Badcatalex @ Badcatalex:
    I bought my ThinkPad T470s from amazon warehouse for $200 roughly
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Nice.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Do you still use it to this day for daily tasks?
