    Hoping I can get this sorted some time tonight I have successfully soft modded the wii it will read the sd card usb reader (when used as a flash drive) when I plug in my external hard drive The drive will spin but the loaders (have tried multiple) don't pick up the drive and the light on the front will not light up I need suggestions as to how to solve this
