    Hi guys. I'm having quite a bit of trouble getting backups to play on my Wii through a hard drive, and I've pretty much given up trying to do this myself. I honestly dunno if this belongs here, or in the Hacking discussion, but here goes.

    I have a first-model (White) Wii 4.3U and a Toshiba Canvio Plus USB 3.0 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive, which is described as having some issues in the USB Devices compatibility list (http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/USB_Devices_Compatibility_List#1TB). I'm using an NTFS partition to read .iso files.

    What I want to know is, is it even worth it to try to use my current HDD, or should I just go and get another?
    If it's worth still trying, what am I possibly doing wrong? If I'm missing information, what should I provide?

    Games tested in USB Loader GX and Configurable USB Loader under IOS249, 248, and 247
    Super Smash Bros. Brawl [RSBE01] - Single Disc Layer scrubbed version, will load and play, but freezes if R.O.B. is selected as a character or Mushroomy Kingdom is selected as a stage. Note that the single player is unplayable, but since this is a single layer version, this is to be expected.

    Mario Party 8 [RM8P01] - Boots back to HBC when set to play.

    SUPER PAPER MARIO [R8PP01] - Freezes entire Wii.

    The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess [RZDE01] - Freezes entire Wii.

    THE HOUSE OF THE DEAD 2 AND 3 RETURN [RHDE8P] - Freezes entire Wii.

    The House of the Dead - OVERKILL [RHOP8P] - Rapid scrolling effect, rendering game unplayable.

    The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword [SOUE01] - Plays fine, slight music stuttering.

    I stopped reading at "Toshiba" My advice is to get something different. I bought one it never really worked correctly. always had initialization problems. I did get it to somewhat work but I can't remember what loader\setup I had (it still had problems though). My advice is get something else.

    Edit: The loader I used was Wiiflow now I think about it. still don't remember the Cios\base

    Fair enough. Which brands of HDD would you recommend I look at?

    Well after having bad luck with the 3.0 Toshiba 1tb, I went back to a Seagate 2.0 500gb, but I'm not even sure if you can still purchase them. So Honestly someone else may have to answer that question.

    Sounds good to me, I'll find it somewhere on the Internet, I'm sure. Have you had any trouble at all with that Seagate playing backup .isos at all?

    Coolbeans.
    Open question for everyone now, which HDDs work the best for you?
    Turns out it's really hard to find that specific hard drive, so while I look, more suggestions please! :lol:
