    So after about 1 year (I think) of not playing Wii, I decided to come back and play. I booted it up, navigated to my USB Loader GX, and let it rip. It gave me the "waiting for your slow USB device" message. I switched the USB ports, unplugged it and plugged it back in, and put another USB device into the other slot. Nothing worked. It USED to work fine...

    I brought my Wii HDD upstairs and stuck it into the computer. It shocked me when my computer didn't recognize it. I am certain that when I formatted it to WBFS, I made a small partion of it FAT. I downloaded the new WBFS manager. Even it would not recognize my HDD. After some more vigorous searching, I found a little guide. I opened up my "Computer Management" thingy and went to "Disk Management". The external HDD didn't show up on here either.

    I'm running a 4.1U Wii. My HDD is a 320GB WD My Passport Essential (if I remember correctly).

    What do I need to do to be able to run Wii games off of this HDD again?

    I'll try getting a new cable. You think Futureshop/Best Buy would sell them?

    Hmm I think it is the best to ask them in the shop(if you live near one of those.) Because BB and FutureShop are not in Holland if I remember it good.
