    I have a Laptop style USB Drive (650GB) using USB on left side (good side) and USB port on hub on the 2nd port with no issues. I tried to use my USB drive I 1st used on the Wii on the USB hub on the 2nd port. I enabled both port option in settings, but only 1 drive detected.

    How do you get 2 drives to be seen by USB Loader GX ?

    Thanks,
    ISO-Man

    Apparently For drives it doesn't :) Other devices work fine on hub though. Any work around for this?

    Thanks PsyBlade,

    lemme get this straight, ur asking if its possible to load games from the 2nd inner usb port on ur wii, right?

    if so, IIRC you can only use the 2nd port for mics, and the like, you cannot use it for harddrives. i cant find any work around for it too; on any of the usb loader guides.

    You're misunderstanding the OP's situation: he's using a USB hub on the Wii's port0 so that he can have 2 drives connected to port0 at once.

    I would think that USB loaders would have to specifically support this setup, and I see no reason they would want to considering you can already do shenanigans to get drives recognized on port1.
