    I've tried several USB devices and each time I get this error > Could not initialize USB subsystem! (ret = -6)

    Anyone know what could be the problem? I also just got a 1TB Seagate Free Agent Xtreme and I get the same error.

    That error means you don't have cIOS installed. Go to it.

    What you can do is go install rev9 again. That's the best way to make sure you have it.

    If it is an AC powered HDD, wait 5 or 10 secs before booting the USB Loader and you will have no problem [​IMG]

    Rev8 also had the music, so you might have installed that before. But now that it works, who cares?
