    I have external hdd drive Asus(i don`t remember type) 500 gb. Wii explorer can see this drive and can operate on him(cut, copy, paste, etc) but when i go in usb loader cfg, can`t detect my hdd, only see 4 partition with 0 gb. I know about compatibility list but there is no Asus hdd there, and i thought that if wii explorer can see ... all programs from wii will see.... Do you have any idea?

    might be gpt vs mbr
    check which on you use
    most wii programs need mbr
    but wii explorer can use both

    I formated hdd in NTFS, in Fat32, in WBFS and wasn`t recognised in usb loader. I think that i was using mbr... I tried with usb loader gx too, and same result...

    Somewhere over the rainbow
    Probably an incompatible HDD.
