    I've been using a 64gb usb flash drive with no problems, but i switched to a 1tb hdd and now usb loader gx freezes on initializing usb device. I found a workaround by unplugging the hdd before launching usbloadergx and it will say waiting on hdd, then i plug it in and it loads no problem. however every time i change a game i have to do it all again (unplug, launch, plug). has anybody run into this problem? any ideas?

    I have had this problem when I was using a Seagate Freeagent 320gb. I recently switched to a different 1Tb hard drive (I don't remember the brand), and the problem went away.

    I think some hard drives 'go to sleep' if you leave your Wii on standby (yellow LED) and are unable to be woken up when you start the Wii up again. There may be a way to disable sleep mode (if that's what it is). Hopefully someone else will chime in.

    Unfortunately, I never found a solution other than changing hard drives - but you are not alone! :)
