Hi all, new here. As many who probably very recently modded their Wii's I did so in order to play Xenoblade. I followed the guide over at Joystiq (http://www.joystiq.com/2011/08/19/how-to-play-xenoblade-chronicles-if-you-live-in-america/) and all went according to plan, I was playing Xenoblade happily quite soon. Having decided that installing my games to a USB HDD sounded like a nice idea, I bought a WD Essentials 1 TB HDD. I formatted it as FAT32 using SwissKnife (since Windows doesn't seem to be able to format a HDD that size natively). I copied over the contents of the flash drive I'd been using, that worked fine. Then I installed some games from disc, that worked fine too. Then I installed some ISO's from my computer, that worked fine too. Now I've run across a hiccup. It seems very hit and miss for me to be able to install from disc anymore. I can still install from ISO's on my computer no problem (been using Wii Backup Manager), but it seems most (or at least many that I have tried) discs won't install anymore, they hang at some point (which varies, it's been anywhere from 7 to 90 percent) in the installation and just refuse to go any further. The games I tried (all retail discs) were MadWorld, Kirby's Epic Yarn, and Dragon's Lair Trilogy. I didn't see these on any lists of trouble games so I'm not really sure what's going on. I was able to get Wii Play Motion (a much smaller, less than a GB, whereas the others are 3+ GB, game) without problems, though installation would occasionally stop for a second then the percentage would start going up again. Is this most likely a lens/disc reading error that I should just get a lens cleaner for? Or something possibly better/worse that I can fix with updates? Again I followed the Joystiq guide exactly, the only additional things I installed were Priiloader to stop disc updates and the HB browser, but I installed these long before games stopped installing correctly. Sorry if I make no sense or don't understand this stuff, NoA kind of threw us US folks a curve ball making us have to import and I imagine many of us didn't know what we were getting into, but I've found everything quite easy up until this point, I just can't figure why games are stopping during install. I should also point out that I have taken the stuff off the drive, reformatted (quick, though, not full) again to FAT32, and put the stuff back, to no avail, installs still stop at random points and never start again. Any help is much appreciated. Also I searched the web many times over with relevant search terms and the only advice I could find was that of reformatting the HDD, so sorry if this is a known issue but I could not find it. Mods: Sorry for the topic title typo, hopefully you guys and gals can change it cause I sure can't.
