    So I spent quite a bit of last night attempting to allow the Wii to play games off of my external hard drive(2 tb WD mybook essential). I have cIOS222, cIOSX rev 19, usb loader gx, my hard drive has two drives I will be using for the Wii a ~500gb WFBS and a 100gb of another which may turn into fat32 but i haven't needed it yet.

    The initial problems came when "installing" games (I am using twilight princess because I lost it and really wish to finish it.) I was not able to see the games in the GX menu until I formatted to wfbs and now when attempting to play twilight princess the screen just goes black and the wiimote loses connection so I have to unplug the console and plug it back in because hitting reset or power doesn't do anything.

    I am in the process of testing if another game will run.. not sure about that yet.
    I also know that my HD is on the list of compatible usb devices just fyi.

    True I apologize, wasn't sure of the appropriate forum to put it under.
