    Hi, i tried to make a lacie hard drive for use in the wii, but it froze up usb loader, now when i try to put it in the pc it isnt reconized, which is fair but it isnt being assigned a drive letter either!!

    so i went to disk managment and the drive is there (unallocated), but i cant assign a drive letter to the drive because it needs to be 'initialized' but when i try to initialize it i get an I/O device error!!

    looked every where cant find answers so i thought i'd turn here. i dont need to save the backups on the drive just need to save the drive itself. Any ideas??

    Is it the type of drive you can take out and connect directly to the pc? If it is, try that and bypass the usb port.
