    I don't know anything about hacking, because I recieved this console with HD from someone else. But i'm wondering if there is way to fix the problem i'm having. I get about 20 mins max of gameplay and then the music might stop playing on the game, and then... it's frozen.

    I Can't pull up the menu or nothing. Have to pull the power cord on the Wii and start all over. I have played around with the video setting on the game load menu, as the previous owner told me to put it on FORCE NTSC... but it still freezes. I also plugged in the HD to see if it had a powersave mode, but all the PC said when i plugged it in was that this external drive is not formatted, would you like to format? So I still get a little gameplay and then bam like clockwork... frozen. And there is plenty of space left on the harddrive- and it is still running (and running at regular temp).

    Any advice for someone who doesn't know alot about this issue?

    Thanks so much, desperately need your help

    some hard drives, like WD harddrives, have a sleep timer built into their firmware

    in order to disable it, u may need to install w/e software came with ur drive (also available on their website) then use it to disable the sleep timer on your hard drive


    btw, usbloader gx sucks, try configurable usb loader or wiiflow

    Thanks for your advice;

    I don't have any experience at modding, etc. I purchased this from someone in Nashville, TN with a understanding that it worked easily.

    The hard drive says "Element" on the top of it with a sun insignia and it's a 750g (still has like 690g's of free space)... the only thing i found that looked similar to this HD was on this ebay site:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/Element-2-5-USB2-0-SAT...#ht_3277wt_1008

    When i search for "Element" that's all i see that looks like mine. And that's just a casing.



    Thanks
