I have followed all the instructions for installing usb loader version 1.1 on this site. Everything installs fine until I hook up my Seagate FreeAgent Desk 500GB 7200 RPM USB 2.0 Silver External Hard Drive (which is listed in the USB Devices Compatibility List with one confirmed working). I have tried the device in both usb ports. Have tried turning the wii off too a red light before plugging it in and having the wii turned on and then plugging in the device but I always get the "Could not initialize USB subsystem! (ret = -1)" error and then telling me to restart the wii. I have also disabled the "sleep" feature of the hard drive with the Segate tools that came with the drive. I know that everything installed properly because it will find my Kingston 2GB thumb drive fine. (I don't really want to try the hot swapping method for formatting). I have tried formatting the drive NTFS and FAT before trying it on the wii (there are no partitions, just one drive). I have also tried the modded usb loader with the 40 second delay built in with no luck. I am running a softmodded wii with HBC, Gamma Loader .3 with Gamecube support on a 3.2U wii. Can anyone think of anything that I can try or will I have to wait till it is updated, even though the drive is confirmed as working with others? Thanks in advance.
