    Somehow (KIDS) one of the ports on the back of my wii is broken. The little plastic piece has come out of the port. So we tried to plug our hard drive into the other port but it doesn't recognize it. Any suggestions?


    Thanks in Advance

    there is only one usb port wherein you could plug the hdd drive for usb loading. that is the bottom port if your wii is in horizontal position. if it was damaged, you have no other choice but to send it for repairs.

    If I recall correctly, some older versions of cIOS were able to use the other port. Or you could just go with using SD cards

    EVER heard of the Search? I guess not, because this was answered several times already.

    There's a special EHCI-Module from Hermes or Oggzee, which uses the other port. Download that, and set CFG-Loader to use it.

    It's here, CFG-Loader is also there:
