    Hi,

    I have got 2 USB harddrives, Both Seagate FreeAgent Go drives (more info here)
    HD1 : 320GB, 2 partitions (NTSF+WBFS) (works with cIOS249, 222 and 223)
    HD2 : 880GB, 2 partitions (NTSF+WBFS) (only works with 223?)

    WiiFlow and CFG loader both recognize the WBFS partions but when I connect the 880GB HD and load a game using cIOS249 WiiFlow hangs on "Please wait.." and CFG loader hangs on "Loading game.."
    When I select cIOS223 it does load the game.

    I have installed cIOS249 rev20b, Hermes v4 and these IOS:

    1.Is it possible that the Seagate FreeAgen 880GB drive is NOT compatible with cIOS249?
    2.Can I load all games with WiiFlow or CFG loader using 222 or 223? (like Mario Galaxy 2)
    3.Wich version of WiiFlow and CFG loader can I use? (222 or 223? wich on do you prefer and why?)

    Thank you

    Use sysinfo to check. If the sector size is 1024 and not 512k like my samsung S2 it will never be compatible with any USB loader..

    Have you considered trying a FAT32 partition instead of WBFS just to see if it works?
