This afternoon, I finally "inaugurated" my hard drive on the Wii, after installing USB Loader GX and everything else needed. It works perfectly fine. But I'd like to keep my hard drive plugged all the time, instead of unplugging it every time I power off the Wii. Can it be a problem? For the hard drive itself or for its detection by loaders? On a related note (this is my second question), I turned on the Wii with the HD already plugged, and USB Loader GX gave me a black screen. Do you think it's related, or was it just a random bug? (the HD power light was on). Restarting again and plugging the HD *after* did the trick, but I don't know if it's a coincidence or not. FYI, I have a WD My Passport Digital 500 GB (supposedly the best in its category). Thanks for your help!
