    so this is the situation:

    i have a 3.5 500gb seagate HDD connected with a easyusb cable to the wii, the disc uses an external power source.
    what happens is that if i turn on the power of the disc then turn on the wii i get error on the drive every time i enter GX loader or wiiflow, in gx loader it asks me to format and wiiflow an error code.
    to make it work i have to disconnect the wii and HDD, unplug the HDD from wii and connect to a pc and then turn on the HDD...
    now i can plug it back to the wii and it works fine...
    the order of turning on the wii or disc as no affect, i really have to plug the disc to the pc and turn it on before plugging it to the wii

    i find this very strange, if someone know what is this about please give me a hint
