Hello, I have a couple of issues that are officially driving me crazy. I have many games backed up on an external HDD. They played okay for a while, but most of the time they freeze up after a little while of playing. After my research, I concluded this is a possible spin-down issue. I searched for a remedy for this problem and so far have come up with no good solutions. I'm using USB Loader GX on my soft-modded wii (with homebrew). My external drive is a 750GB Western Digital Caviar Green Drive (WD7500ACS). It's in a WD MyBook Legacy Premium enclosure.The entire drive is partitioned to WBFS. Some of my games on the drive were transferred to it from my PC using Wii Backup Manager. Others were simply burned to the drive from game discs using the Wii and USB loader's install utility. I have no problem burning games from disc. Almost all my games play fine until the inevitable freeze-up, usually about 30-45 minutes in. Apparently, WD does not have a way to disable power saving or spindown on green drives. So, I am realizing that if I cannot solve this problem, I will eventually break down and get a different HD. But I know I'll need to backup my games on my PC hard drive. So I fired up Wii backup manager and hooked up my external HDD with all my games on it. I started trying to move the game files from the external HD to my PC local hard drive (NTFS) and I got a few copied over, but then it crapped out and failed the remainder of the transfers. I tried several different files, some of them will transfer one at a time, some simply just fail mid-way through and I've seen many game titles showing up in red after the transfer (meaning it didn't work). I tried setting the option that lets you "Use ISO on NTFS drives" and still have difficulties. So, my problem is two-fold I suppose... I need a solution for the spindown issues on my WD Caviar Green drive, and to find out why I'm having so much trouble transferring from my external HD to my PC with Wii Backup manager. Sorry for the wall of text, thanks in advance. (please let me know if I need to provide any other info).
