I have a 500gb external L.A. Porsche LaCie HDD. These are the specs; http://www.gadgetgrid.com/2007/11/30/porsc...nal-hard-drive/ I have done everything I can think of to get this sumbeesh to work with the USB Loader. I partitioned the active part of the drive to about 350GB, with about 150GB partitioned, intended to be used for Wii ISO loading. Here's a screenshot of what I did. Every single time I try to run the USB Loader, I get the same "Could not initialize USB subsystem! (ret = -1) ?" error. I read the other FAQ, so I know what possible issues there could be. I tried both USB ports, but haven't been able to get it to work. Does anyone else here have the same external hard drive as me, who knows how to partition this thing correctly, or can anyone point me to a 1TB external hard drive that DOES work? I know that 500GB is maximum partition size, too; I've tried to cover due diligence in looking for an answer myself before posting this. As a side-note; I was able to successfully dump Wii Sports onto a shitty 1GB SD card that I plugged into an SD USB Adapter, and it worked flawlessly. I just want to be able to partition this 500GB drive to have about 150GB allocated to Wii ISOs and the rest for my regular usage. If anyone can help me with this, I'd be terribly appreciative.
