    Hello.
    I've installed the UsbLoader-Gui wad on my Wii, however I can't get it to recognise the hard drive.
    I've tried both USB ports and tried re-formatting my drive to Fat32 and then WBFS several times.
    I have also tried my mates hard drive which works on his Wii.

    Am I missing something?
    Did I need to install something to make the Wii recognise the hard drives?

    Thanks for the help. [​IMG]

    Yes, Wii's don't read external hard drives formatted to WBFS out of the box. If you have not properly installed a cIOS above rev9 at least then it will not read it. Install rev14 (restore the trucha bug first if necessary as the cIOS installer will need an IOS with the trucha bug to install, see xzxero's stickied guide.) Then plug the drive into the usb port closer to the edge of the Wii.
