    The Problem

    My wii used to work with USB (uloader, wiimc, mcplayer ce.)
    Now it doesn't read it. :( I think it is the IOS58. After I installed IOS58 I have never used the HDD until now. It wont show up anywhere!
    My hard drive is the WD Passport Essential 500GB (NTFS).

    Try rehacking it? I dunno; sometimes stuff just breaks down. And on a side note, do you have to have your HDD formatted to NTFS? I think you've got a higher chance of a successful reading attempt if it's formatted to fat32. I know this's a bit hard, so just try rehacking it first...

    I know... :( try rehacking it and see if that works... or at least delete IOS58 from your card... plug it into the computer and delete it.

    Install over it; just removing something could brick your Wii *shudders*

    Install on an unused block. If 249 is empty, sure. You don't install with them; you install on them...

    Yeah; I think you can install it on 249/250. I know I don't use it for anything. So I installed it on an IOS I didn't use...

    No!!!!! Just stick your SD card into your computer and delete it then. If the reinstallment didn't work, then just delete it since it didn't solve your problem. :hateit:

    Well at least it's working. :) Maybe it'll go faster if you load it into another loader. Or be patient. Once it finishes, then you can try your games to see if they'll play. That's all that really matters.
