    It might not be compatible. :unsure: are you waiting a little to give it time to try to find it? Try a different usb plug. I had bought a cheap one from dollar tree :P and it worked for other things but not for my hd to connect to my wii. replaced it with a good one and bam! it worked.

    where did you get that thing china? better to go get a brand everyone uses and trusts like western digital. in the loaders section there should be a compatibility list go and buy one from that list that's been confirmed to work properly.
