    Hello everyone, I recently upgraded from a 200gb maxtor to a 320 gb maxtor and for some reason the usbloaders will not reconize it. In usbloader gx it says "waiting for your slow usb drive then errors out 30 seconds.
    is there any way to get it to work or should I just go see for another hard drive?

    Pretty sure this is either a power issue or you didnt shut down the Wii properly.

    What I did when i got this message was unplug my Wii power cord, unplug the power of the USB HD. Turned on the Wii then the USB HD.

    should be good to go then.

    Have you tried both USB ports? Usually only works with just one of them for me on both the Wiis I have here. [​IMG]

    well i tried everything and nothing is working
    I returned it today for a maxtor 250 gb and it works great.
    so it must have been a bad hard drive or something.
