    Okey, so i got 1.5 TB Verbatim External Hard Drive.
    I tried to format it via WBFS manager 3.0.
    Then i got error: error occoured while formatting the drive, Make sure its not in use.
    Theni tried to format it via usb loader GX
    Then it found the hard drive.
    It said that i had to format it.
    then i clicked format= then it said No partition found.
    then it says i have to restart the wii.
    WTF?!
    any idea whats happening?

    Use EASEUS to format it to FAT32 and then try again.

    Try again now on computer, and when it says it is busy, restart the hard drive.

    Doesnt work that either. -.-
    It says that the verbatim 1,5 hdd works.
    Here on gbatemp USB Devices Compatibility list it says:
    ''Works like a charm! No issues whatsoever. Tested on a Wii with system menu version 4.0 and 4.1, USB loader gx and Neogamma R7.''

    Why do you need a 1.5TB drive anyway?

    Try using a linux livecd to format it and then try again.
