    Hi,
    using the USB Loader - I experience the problem with some games that crash down because my 2,5'' Samsung HDD (160GB) seems to shut down (sleep mode?) when the Wii is not loading new data. I already checked the Samsung website, but didn't find any solution for this problem.
    Is there a useful Tool to set a different sleep time for my HDD?

    Thanks in advance!

    Is you external hard drive powered by the Wii USB port?

    Yes, 2,5'' - only powered by the Wii USB.
    Tried both ways - using just one or two USB connectors. Both ways work fine - after 40-60 minutes of playing the HDD shuts down.
    The HDD is listed as working in the wiki.gbatemp compatibility list (Samsung 160GB 2,5'') ...

    Hmm ... scary post, but I think I will give it a try if I can't wait for a rev11 ...
    Anyway, THANKS a lot for your advices!

    Also, thanks to my wife who made me think about using the discs again for the games I want to play longer then 40 minutes ... [​IMG]
