I am currently trying to use the USB loader v1.5 with a Seagate FreeAgent Desktop 250gb hard drive. I have partitioned and formatted the drive and the wii recognized it. I was also able to rip the Wii Sports game to the drive, but for some reason I cannot load it from the drive; it freezes up. I have tried both USB ports, plugging in the drive before hooking it up, while in HBC, and while in the USB loader menu. Any help or ideas on things to try would be greatly appreciated.
