I have been doing these thing for the better of 4 years so Im no newb. I have mysetup so it take me roughly 5-10 minutes if that to install HBC, 12 channels for emulators and all the required files for Wii backups, and GC backups etc. So the problem I am having is with a new hard drive. Its a 1th Western digital. I formatted at fat32 with 32kb clusters as always. The wii games play fine. Click Dios mios, it shows the game in the root/games folder and when i click one the screen just stays black. If i try my old drive they play fine so its not the wii. I also partitioned it into two sectors so the GC partition was smaller so not to confuse the wii. They show up when dios mios starts but wont play. I also tried Nintendont. Old drive works, new drive does. This is the 3rd drive in a week that wont do GC games. Any ideas?
