    i turned on my wii for the first time in a few weeks, and now all of a sudden the hbc wont load apps off of the external hdd usb. i had my wii on and working perfectly as recently as when super mario galaxy 2 came out, and i havent updated anything since then and im really perplexed as to why this doesnt work.

    i plugged the hdd into my pc and the 100g ntfs partition comes up, with all the files and everything. the apps folder is in the root and nothing has changed there afaik.

    i havent used my wii in a little while and i cant remember if there is a config file for the hbc i might be missing now or whatnot so yeah. any help is appreciated, thank you very much. oh and also my hdd is plugged into the usb port closest to the outside of the wii, altho i tried it both ways just to make sure my mind wasnt playing tricks on me. thanks a bunch!

    yes..... i have both triiforce and hbc apps on there. triiforce alone takes up quite a bit. and before you say oh thats the problem, bear in mind that i had this exact set up working for months previously.

    HBC will look for apps on SD card first, then USB. If no apps on SD but on USB still won't see them.

    have u tried more than once? I had the same issue for a few minutes, then reloaded to the SM, then opened up the HBC again, and it worked no problem and continued to work thereafter

    Same for me. USB not working anymore. Tried several times but no success. Also the HBC cant get back to the system-menu it just reboots.

    Yeap...i'm not even "allowed" to choose USB device in HBC menu.
    Guess its a too much big partition for it.

    Have to try with smaller partitions.

    No mine is only 3GB and it isnt working either. Maybe the surprise is that no USB-drives with a WBFS-partition on it are working.

    could be, my drive is 100% fat32 and it worked

    u may want to try reformatting your drive to remove your wbfs partition to test your theory

    After updating to 1.07 from 1.06 my 100% FAT32 USB drive isn't reconized any more... So I guess this has nothing to do with WBFS partitions...

    they are already aware of some issues with usb, and with the reloading to HBC issue.
