Hi, I have been using: -Conf. USBloader -WD 250GB (passport?) -WBFS for MACOS X -waninkoko ciosrev17 for quite some time now But all of a sudden the USB device does not get detected anymore by the wii. someone else was using the Wii when it occured, but i dont think something strange was done. The person said a game was played, and the wii went back to the wii menu to load a different game. but when entering CUSBL, the program counted down, not being able to find the drive. a couple more times were tried. what i did to try to solve it: -Updated cios to latest version -cleared Conf USB-L to replace with GX (and eliminate wrong settings if they were touched) -checked the drive with WBFS for MACOS X (it could actually read the drive, enough free space) -Swapped USB cable just to exclude a cable problem. to me, it seems the usb slots on the wii are the problem, but i find it hard to believe.
