    ERROR Ret=-1 means "USB device not supported".

    Try with another HD/Pendrive/something.

    My Samsung 2GB Pendrive didn't want to work and gave me that error... Then I tried with my Apacer 4GB Pendrive and it worked fine [​IMG]

    I guess nobody pays attention to me ;_;

    Anyway, find one that will work, put it in, boot the loader and when it tells you to format it, take it out and put your drive in. This may work, as it works for my 4gb flash drive.

    hehe... I was able to found ot, HOW to do it right.
    USB Loader 1.1 is able to find the games list on WD Elements 640GB! Yes, it works! But not with USB Loader 1.0 ^^
    I thought that would be useful for some another gbatempler [​IMG] Have fun (some games do not work at this moment though)

    Plug the USB cable on your wii first. Then boot HBC. Then turn on the hard drive. It works for me like this.

    I don't know why it's picky like this, but could this problem be solved by debugging the usb2 driver????
