    I used some file recovery software that saved some information to my portable hdd, knowing it might cause some damage. I think it might have, cause since then, whenever I plug my hdd into my wii, the hard drive just beeps annoyingly, and nothing on the Wii will detect the HDD.

    Now, I've formatted and reformatted the thing as FAT32 (even with a low-level format) and still nothing, leading me to wonder if something's up with my Wii. Well, that and the fact that the HDD works fine as far as I can reckon on Windows. I did just install a crapton of wads for the latest NeoGamma so that I get all of it's benefits. Nothing went wrong till I used the file recovery software but...you never know. So here's my sysCheck!

    Code:

    Why would you install anything especially for NEOGAMMA?
    Basic softmod is all you need for ANY loader.
    So that's overkilling...

    Neogamma does'nt handle FAT32 drives, only .wbfs formatted ones.

    Please use the latest version of Syscheck.
    Did you set the cluster size to 32?
    Did you set it as a active partition?
    What did you use to format it with? I recommend the fat32 gui tool.
    Make sure it's NOT in xfat. ( windows 7 )

    A beeping HDD often is an indication of bad hardware, in this case your HDD or Wii.

    ??? what?? i think you meant to say fat32 is where it's at. ntfs sucks, most of the loaders work better with ntfs, an you get the benafits of using the hdd for most if not all the homebrew. also if your planning on using any of the variations of *neek. it doesn't work with ntfs. the list goes on but i will not list them all.
    i never used neo so i can't really comment on that part. but IMPO.. wbfs, as a format for hdd is dead. ntfs, is on life support.

    About NeoGamma. My hdd HAD a wbfs partition. That's why I mentioned that it wouldn't detect the HDD. And I also softmodded my wii a long(ish) time ago. I was missing some stuff that the version of NeoGamma I was upgrading to needed in order to use some new features it had. And I was using NeoGamma because USB Loader GX stopped detecting new games that I added to the drive for some mysterious reason. Figured I'd just try something else.

    In any event, I've formatted the entire hdd (deleted partitions and all!) with fat32 (using easeus partition master first, then something else thinking that the master boot record might be borked) and I still have the beeping problem. I'm going to pick up a new 2.5in SATA enclosure tomorrow, because one of the formatters I used listed the firmware and serial number of the drive as 0000000, but the hdd itself works perfectly fine in windows. No beeping at all. So I'm starting to think that the enclosure messed up somehow...I don't know how, however.

    Here's a sysCheck with the latest version used.
