    I think the issue is with the Drive itself not the USB Loader, i think the seagate tool will let you set the standby on non seagate drives as well.

    This was solver about 2 days after Wanin released his first USB loader. I quick search would have told you that you just get teh software from teh people that made your drive to fix this.

    It is solved with current CIOS versions (since 13a I think?). It makes the Wii periodically write-accessing the drive (every few seconds) which avoids the drive going to sleep. Can't try out if it really works though, cause my drive doesn't have a sleep mode like that at all, but I can see and hear the accesses.

    I have 2 WD drives; a Passport and a MyBook. As of rev13, the spindown is indeed fixed. Both drives have an LED, and you can see the drive get accessed periodically in anything that uses 249.

    so what is the "seagate tool" to fix this?

    anytime I pause the game for long periods my game/HDD freezes or goes into standby, or thats what I assume.
