    Hi,

    I own a WD MyBook Essential 2.0 1TB and yesterday I wanted to put some music on the FAT partition using FTPii (latest version I think downloaded using Homebrew Browser).

    Every time I start FTPii my FTP client (FireFTP) shows the NAND, SD and USB. But when I try to put some MP3's in the MUSIC folder the connection to the USB drive gets disconnected.
    I have to shut down FTPii, and restart it for it to show up again. Tranfers to SD work flawlessly.

    It's not that much of a biggie, because I can just connect the USB drive to my laptop and transfer that way
    but I'd like to get it fixed anyways.

    Does anyone know what could cause this ? I'm on 4.1E, cIOS Rev 14, Hermes cIOS rev4, DVDx and IOS 202 installed.

    Sorry mate - I had exactly the problem/question as you and could'nt solve it.

    I just use Wiixplorer and grab what I need from the wii itself - much more stable,
    and cios202 for USB2 gives me good transfer speeds.

    I would still like to get FTPii going properly...

    Here's a link to my thread.

    Please let us know if you solve the problem.

    Well, I also tried Wiixplorer, but for some strange reason the pointer gets invisible after a while.

    Yes !! I 'solved' it !! After doing a lot of reading, I found a few post saying that 0.0.15 worked better
    for them than newer versions.

    It works for me perfectly !!
