My parents have recently bought a Buffalo Just Store Desktop 1TB (code: HD-E1.0TU2-UK) on my recommendation to run backups on their softmodded Wii (done by me). In cfg usbloader, the game covers are loaded from the drive but when I go to start a game, it just freezes at the games loading page on cfg loader, with the Wii DVD slot pulsing and I have to reboot the Wii. I also tried to install a retail Disc to the hard drive and this did the same thing. Having tried the hard drive on my Wii, and my hard drive (working) on their Wii, I have discovered it is definitely the hard drive causing the issues. BUT... the funny thing is that my hard drive is also a Buffalo external 1TB and have had no problems although it is from a couple of years back when they were called Buffalo Drivestation (HD-CE1.0TU2-EU) - have they changed the technology slightly and something is now causing a problem in the newer drives? Does the HD-CE make the difference? Am I missing something I have to do to get it to work? Please advise. It just seems weird that the drive lets cfg usbloader access it first of all (to see what games are there) but doesn't want to load the games themselves.
