    Ok, so I have Homebrew Channel with USB Loader GX, and when I plug in my hard drive, I get this message:

    Init wbfs... -101

    You have issues with a slow disc, or a difficult disc

    And then it goes to the loader's menu, and then it says my USB device isn't detected, retry for 30 seconds? And then there's two options: cIOS 222 and cIOS 249, which doesn't do anything.

    My hard drive is WD 500GB, and I'm fairly certain that I've installed everything correctly. Help? [​IMG]

    Did you format your hdd to WBFS format? If you didn't get WBFS Manager.

    Yes, I properly formatted it to WBFS, but when I was first formating the hard drive (not using WBFS Manager) there were 2 options: NTFS and exFAT. I formatted it to exFAT, then I formatted to WBFS. Could that be my problem?

    You should try NTFS, FAT32 or ext2/3/4.
    To use one of these formats, you'll need either Hermes cIOS (22x), or Waninkoko cIOSx rev18+ (best choice is r21 d2x v3).

    If you really want to use a WBFS partition, try formating to NTFS first and format back to WBFS, maybe that's because you used extFat first.
    use only a primary partition, not any extended one.

    Sorry for the slow reply, but I've got the prob fixed now [​IMG]

    I used a different hard drive, and guess what? It worked!

    I'm not exactly the most experienced guy, but I'm sure it probably has

    1. Some issues with USB 3.0 (Other one's 2.0)
    or
    2. Exfat issues
