    i plugged my external 320gb Western Digital HDD into my Wii, it has lots of movies etc on it.
    I ran Mplayer Ce and went to USB but it just comes up blank.
    I went to SD and it had a couple of movies i put on my sd card.
    So why isnt it working with my external hard drive?

    help would be nice [​IMG]

    I am having a similar problem. My 500gb wd external hard drive shuts off when mplayerCE v0.5 starts up.

    Can you tell if the hdd starts up at all? if it does try to get into mplayerCE through HBC and not a channel then once in, click on the usb to view files(nothing should show up) then quit directly into HBC and then go back into mplayerCE and try to click on view files in usb again. I know this sounds weird but it seems to work for my hdd.
