    I have a older Wii (LU50) and newer Wii(LU63). It seems the newer Wii has higher compatibility with my western digital USB hard drive. Sometimes, the newer Wii just can find USB device. I need to power cycle the Wii and USB drive several times to make it work. Is there any reason behind this? Did Nintendo change the USB hardware? I am using usbloader gx and cios13b.

    did you try plugging in the usb hdd after the usb loader starts? some wiis you have to do that.
    if not try thet, also make sure it's the bottom usb port(if the wii is sitting flat not the one that's on the bottom.)
