    If you are using Configurable USB Loader (and maybe some other loaders) you need to reset/delete your config file. It tells the loader what partition to use in most cases.

    Do you have any games on the HD???

    You can't format to NTFS AND WBFS.
    One of both.

    Use EASEUS partition manager to format it to FAT32 .
    then put something in apps folder (an app!!). and load HBC to see if HBC sees it.
    If it does it is compatible if not...
    FAT32 is the best for usb loading
