I'm not sure what's going on here, but I recently replaced my external hdd (showed caution in crystaldiskinfo). now, for some reason, the new hdd is not being detected. I actually tried both hdds after the new one wasn't being detected. neither was picked up. I've tried different enclosures, cables, even ports to no avail. I had originally used ustealth, so I don't know if that could be causing a problem. when I unhid my hdd, the system did pick up the drive and asked if I wanted to copy to it. I forgot to use bootice (don't remember ever using it) beforehand. I just used a cheap fat32 formatter. oh, and the drive is in mbr format. anyway, nothing I do seems to make any difference. this is a powered hdd btw. I don't know if not using bootice messed something up or not, but it doesn't really explain why the old hdd doesn't work, because I hacked the vwii a long time ago. despite its caution warning, the drive is detectable in windows. what could be the problem?
