    Been having some problems with my Harddrive & Usb loader (just about every version their is)

    Seagate freeagent Go 320gb

    A few games crash .. Black screen after about 10 to 15 minutes play

    I know about the spindown thingy.. thats set to off/never...

    I have even taken it apart and had hd parm on it.. and tried a Y shaped usb lead connected to the wii

    Games examples that crash.

    Pikmin & Pikman 2

    MarioWare Smoothmoves and a few others

    The damn thing is driving me nuts,, however.. I find if unplug the drive shortly after the game has loaded then reconnect the drive I have no problems with it, and no game crashes..

    It seems the wii loses connection with it at some point, hence why I have to reconnect the drive (bug in the cios/ usb loader ?)

    Anyone experiencing problems with this drive.. or any drive ?

    tried about every version of cios there is

    yes done that...

    its all very bizarre the drive appears to goto sleep after a few minutes..

    so after i boot a game up i then unplug it then plug it back in and all seems fine

    its very bizarre what it is doing..

    can't figure it out for the life of me...
