    So sometime this summer my Wii's hard drive started becoming much less responsive. Unlike before, when CoverFloader would boot up snappily in a few seconds, it now always seems to hang on "Initializing Disc". Nowadays, it takes a few minutes to start, if it does at all. I haven't bothered with it, but now, with NSMBW coming out, I've got a reason to fix this. It's definitely a hard drive problem, my little LaCie 500gb little disc has been preforming excellently up until now, it's not a cios problem or anything, just one day it started having problems. I've got three partitions on it, a 100gb WBFS, 20GB FAT, and the rest is NTFS. Any suggestions? It looks like I'm gonna have to back up the entire thing and delete this WBFS partition and start from scratch, otherwise I'll need to find a new hard drive [​IMG].
