    Hello All!

    Well, i just installed a nice usb loader setup and i'm quite happy about it. My only problem is that i have to plug the hdd in the usb slot AFTER launching the usb loader.

    Meaning I have to plug it off and on again when i switch games. It's not a big problem for me but it is for my girlfriend [​IMG][​IMG]

    So if there is some quick fix ...

    I installed the latest cios from waninkoko btw

    Thx!

    same thing happens to me it has something to do with the hard drive and wii compatible issue . We just have to wait till someone gets a better cios or you could buy a new hard drive case

    Im really curious as to which make and model drive you are talking about.
    Does it happen to be a Seagate Freeagent go?
    I have one and it does the same thing as you described.

    Its an unknown asian brand ... So i checked the compatibility list and i have seen this adapter was working (http://tinyurl.com/nw5jnc). As i own one i tried it but same result.
    That's why i thought of some config/cios issue ;-)

    If someone knows a 100% working hdd i'd be interrested [​IMG]

    Just check this:
    http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/index.php/USB...patibility_List

    In my case, i use to have a Iomega Prestige Portable Hard Drive 500gb that behaved badly.
    The disk is not recognized most of the time.

    Since I have bought a Western Digital My Passport Essential 2.5" 500GB External HDD, and I am very happy with it.

    But you can pick another disk from the list [​IMG]
