I read the USB compatible devices list and found my HDD on it. Therefore I thought I'm going softmod my WII and use this. Unfortunately I havent had much luck using it. I hope someone in here will see my cry for help and come to my aid. My HDD is a WD MyBook Essential Edition. It is on the compatibility list as mentioned. The only difference is that on the list is says WD5000C032 and mine says WD5000C032-002. Is this a different (newer) version that doesn't work? In the description it says "Worked with USB Loader only after creating partitions. Works with Gamma R7 and USBLoader GX 600". I dont understand what this means. I'm using USBLoaderGX 3.0 but in the description as you can see it says USBLoader GX 600. What is that? I hope someone can help me.
