    I softmodded my friends Wii (yes I used all the wads from modmii), and when he plugs in his Toshiba 2.5" USB 2.0 HD, nothing on the homebrew channel shows up (fceu, snes9x, ect), yet if I load up CFG USB Loader via the channel forwarder I installed, it finds the games. If I plug in my Western Digital HD, everything works properly.

    I've never seen a HD do this on a wii, any ideas?

    Is the drive formatted as FAT32? Did you make sure to select USB from the Homebrew Channel? Is the Homebrew Channel using IOS58?

    Yes FAT32, IOS58. When you say select USB from the Homebrew Channel, what do you mean exactly. Remember I plugged my drive in and everything worked fine.

    He knows he needs a new drive. I want to know why it was able to read from CFG USB Loader but nothing showed up in the HBC.

    Just ignore junk.

    It is possible the Wii doesnt like his HDD. The Wii is a crybaby when it comes to HDD compability.
    Have you tried his HDD on your Wii?

    Actually no I didn't, but only because I tried my HD in his Wii and everything came up fine. He's waiting on an external enclosure for a 160GB drive he pulled from a netbook. I'll test that out and post the results.
