    Ok. So recently I upgraded my wii hdd from 350 GB to 750 gb. I picked WD hdd but I can't make it running in my Wii.
    When I plug hdd it creates in windows another virtual drive with tools software.
    I split partitions, but when I try to make it running wii is freezing.
    I format the partitions in wbfs manager, put if I put an iso on it it can not be played on wii.
    I didn't have those problems with older Western digital Hdd.
    What to do?

    Have you tried different games?
    Did you format the hard drive (WBFS) on your computer or with the usb loader program on your wii? (Try both)
    Try a different loader. Usbloader GX, Hermes U Loader are the main ones I use.

    Sorry not much else to tell you without enough info.

    on wd website you can download a firmware and software update... using this you can disable the built in chip up to some point... i've used this method on several passport drives aswell... also, i'd not recomment using any wd drives at this point since the chip with the firmware etc etc causes so much problems, not only with wii, but also with normal users... i work in an it store, so i know...
