    ok so i bought a 750 gig hitachi laptop sata hard drive for my Wii. i stuck it in an xbox 360 slim hard drive case and hooked it up to a powered usb to sata adapter. i then formatted the hard drive to fat 32 with 32k clusters and used Wii backup file manager to transfer my Wii games to the hard drive but for what ever reason usb loader gx wont see the hard drive and for those who ask its the 2016 release of the usb loader any ideas

    edit im gonna my 80 gig HDD which is also a hitachi to see if it works only this time ima make the entire hard drive a WBFS drive will report my findings

    update CFG usb loader can see the 750 gig drive and its games so im guessing usb loader gx is the issue

    heres my sys check report

    Greetings!

    One thing that I think is worth testing would be installing more updated cIOS 249 and 250 with the following:
    IOS249[56] (rev 65535, Info: d2x-v10beta53-alt): Trucha Bug, NAND Access, USB 2.0
    IOS250[57] (rev 65535, Info: d2x-v10beta53-alt): Trucha Bug, NAND Access, USB 2.0

    There is a quite neat installer and a guide to follow to install these cIOS:es at
    Also make sure you've got the latest release of USB Loader GX and launch it from HBC.

    PS. Don't hold me responsible if anything would go wrong

    Well the guide I refered to lists it as a choice which of the betas you want to use, with the pros and cons of each... I've used beta 53 on my wii with no problems so I can't complain, however I would like to hear what problems there are with beta 53 :D

    Beta 53 has support for hard drives on either USB port but it has issues with some games and drives. EmuNAND support is also worse. It's really only useful if you can't use USB port 0 on your console.

    d2x v9 was to have two port support and better compatibility features but it didn't seem to work out so the code got split into two versions - beta52 with the compatibility fixes and beta53 with the dual port feature.
