    I have a 4tb Seagate hard drive. Its new and use to work perfectly fine loading games on my wii. I used USB Loader GX and had no issues. Now when I have the hard drive plugged in and start usb loader gx it crashes. Other hard drives still work but they are only 250gb. I think it started crashing when I added more games. I have exactly 1300 wii games. But I don't know why that would be an issue.

    How did you add those games when you started noticing the crashes? Was it any different then when it was working? How exactly does it crash? Like what do you see? How do you have your drive formatted? FAT32, NTFS or something else? What is your cluster size? 32k, 64k or something else? Do you have one partition or do you have multiple?

    I added the games the way I always do it. Convert them to wbfs and put the game in the wbfs folder. I get a message that says exception (dsi) occurred and a lot of lines of code. It is one NTFS partition. Its too big to be formatted to FAT32.

    No it's not. Convert the whole thing to Fat32 with 64k clusters. That's what I use on my 4TB drive. I use USB Loader GX, Nintendont and neek2o and they all work fine with that setup.
