    I have a Western Digital Dual-Option Combo External Drive and just like in the compatibility wiki, it won't load shit. But I think I have an idea as to why... I was just wondering if anybody else could corroborate this. I came to the conclusion/hunch when fiddling around the device manager and also due to the fact that my USB Hard Drive wasn't recognized as a USB but as a solid internal hard drive (there was no way to eject it). I could explain it, but later on I found this article in Micro$oft's page that explained it even better:

    Could it be that any hard drive that has an integrated hub will not be recognized by Waninkoko's loader?

    Interesting i might have to check this out with my Western Digital 2.5" sata drive i have at home.

    The first enclosure i had for this drive would work on the Wii, so i purchased another one and it work. I check out if both enclosure are detected the same way on my PC, I'll post back here with results once done.
